Very early in my time in Atlanta, I met John Armitage, one of the most talented and versatile photographers I have ever known. Be it location, tabletop or period book cover designs, John is quick to grab a concept and run with it.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with John over many years, creating beautiful work together. John has an impeccable eye for composition, lighting and capturing the client’s vision. His studio is filled with wonderful props, furniture and any kind of surface or wall you can image. It’s always a delight to work with John and his staff!

John Armitage is the complete package. His 30 years of experience have armed John with a wealth of knowledge in all things photography. I believe that his old-school experience with lighting and shooting with film sets him apart from others. John is the most talented and versatile photographer I’ve ever had the privilege to work with.

It started with an 8-year-old boy, a neighborhood garage sale ― and the gift of an old Rollei camera. That boy, John Armitage, had no idea at the time that he was looking at his future. Flash forward to a high school photography class and the teacher’s comment, “You have a great eye.” What started as a hobby soon became a passion.

John did a stint in the Army to earn money for school, and then decided to turn his passion into a career. While studying Communications Photography, he originally planned to be a photojournalist. An internship with product and special effects photographer, Jack Eadon, changed his mind. This taught him control over lighting – something he had been missing.

In 1993, John made the move from Los Angeles to Atlanta, and he’s never looked back. Now he shoots it all. From cosmetics to large room sets (and everything in between), he has worked on thousands of projects. John says it best: “I’m very passionate about my photography and the entire creative process. More than just an outside vender, I am a true partner in creating amazing images to help boost your company’s visibility and sales.”
