About John Absolon
John supplies images and articles for various magazines whilst acting as a freelance photographer for magazine clients like Australian Flying Magazine and Australian Aviation.
John also writes for Australian Flying Magazine as a photojournalist as well as supplying the images for flight test articles and front covers. He has supplied images to in-house newsletters such as Qantas Flight Operations Newletter and has supplied Raytheon L3 Communications with an image for their display stand at the 2009 Avalon International Air Show.
He has extensive aviation experience as well so he knows just how to setup that shot. John has now branched out and is covering sports such as equestrian, junior and school sports. One example that appeals to the younger ones, is his way of publishing individual sports images as if the junior sportsman is the cover sportsperson of a make believe magazine. A hit with the young up and coming sports stars.
Almost any action sport is no problem for John with his extensive background with high energy subjects and the equipment available.
John, who is a member of NPS, shoots digital these days with images up to large very high resolution using long telephoto and a selection of wide angle equipment and gyro stabilised camera mounts. He also has an extensive stock library of mainly military aviation images dating back to the '70s as well as modern aviation subjects that could be used for a number of purposes.
