John Nassari

John Nassari first became interested in photography at the age of 13 when his stepfather gave him his first camera. After earning a degree in advertising photography from Medway College in 1991 (now called University of the Arts), he pursued a career in advertising and editorial photography.

John followed the academic path throughout much of his career. He completed an MA in Visual Culture at Middlesex followed by a PhD the University of East London and spent many years teaching at university level.

John now specialises in luxury weddings, portraits and lifestyle imagery and has won multiple awards for his work. As well as shooting for internationally-renowned brands and luxury venues around the world, John also consults and trains individuals to develop their business skills and creative vision.

His diverse career has cultivated his unique ability of capturing moments and emotions in beautiful ways, a skill that perfectly translates into his wedding photography. John is a brand ambassador for Olympus UK. In 2016 he was selected as an Olympus Visionary; a title reserved for a small group of professional photographers whose work is used to promote the brand. In 2018 John launched Nassari360 software which allows photographers and creatives to produce engaging, immersive and exciting stories by embedding still images, video and audio to create a 360° interactive experience.
