“We could not be more thrilled with the images produced by Adam Johnston and his stylist Jo. The whole day was great fun and we not only got the most amazing and creatively composed images but also learnt a lot about how to present our chalet. We can't wait to update our website and show the world what Black Rock Ski Lodge really looks like!. Thanks so much to both of you, you are amazing!”

Our guests make decisions on which villa to rent without visiting our houses. The rental cost can be substantial. This involves trust in  what we say and how we promote the houses.The role of photography in our marketing is not just important, it is critical. Adam understands this and captures our properties perfectly. His attention to important detail is immense. He manages to control the art and the science in a wonderfully calm, relaxed and professional way. His photography delivers exactly what we want to achieve; the truth, beautifully told.


Damian Hopley - CEO at The Rugby Players Association

"Adam is an extremely talented photographer and his ability to capture the essence of an event or people is remarkable. Having admired Adam's work for many years, I would have no hesitation in recommending him."

“Adam is a long-term Ibiza resident with a keen understanding of the local real estate rentals and sales market, and as such very much in tune with property owners needs for high-quality photography for the marketing of their properties. His personable yet professional manner also make him pleasure to work with for both real estate professionals and property owners. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other real estate agents or home owners.”


Mike Weyerhaeuser - Photographer / Managing Director, JDP Freesport, Ltd. (colleague)

“Ads worked as a sport photographer with me for a stretch covering FIS World Cup Skier Cross and Snowboard events for my agency, JDP Freesport, Ltd. He worked from a brief to supply content for the library in the hopes of signing an agency contract with the FIS for Skier-Cross annual coverage. In this stead, he showed sound initiative by approaching and promoting the library and our services with officers of the FIS. I can heartily recommend Adam for his work as a photographer, delivering professional-level work in a timely manner and to spec. He works well with people - this is his speciality - and keeps an eye on the objective at hand. His work for the agency can be viewed on the www.jdpfreesport.com library. Please contact me at [email protected] if you would like further information. Thanks!” 3

“Adam Johnston has worked for us on a number of our corporate events and has delivered consistently beautiful work. He is not only highly profe es to skate gracefully around clients producing extraordinary photographic and video records of them seemingly invisibly. There are many photographers who know how to use cameras. There are few that capture the essence, mood and context as Adam does. There is a genius in this talent that goes beyond technique (which he has) and crosses into pure creativity. When Adam is available we breathe a sigh of relief since our client relationships are always enhanced with his help. Thank you Adam.”

Jamie Strachan - Founder and Director - HIP HOLIDAYS & HIP CHALETS

Adam, you have a great eye for composition and a natural creative flair. There is a lovely quality to your images that is always pleasing on the eye. Your ability to adapt to new creative challenges and the way you muck in, helps get the job done. Your dedication and thoroughness shines through every time. We are so happy with the latest shots of our chalets in Chamonix and look forward to using you again for more photo shoots in the futures!


Andrew Watson - Managing Director, Heathfield and Co (business partner)

“Hugely enthusiastic, massively creative and the right sort of professional to be around when you need results.”

Details of the Recommendation: "Adam's professional results were consistently so outstanding that my wife and I asked him to photograph our wedding as a special favour to us. Kindly he accepted and as a result we have a wedding album that consistently astonishes friends and colleagues.

His professional range is very broad, though live sports action and architectural shoots are my favourite of his portfolio. His exterior building photo shoots tend to a striking beauty that draws out the absolute best in the location in question.

Adam is exceedingly professional to work with and has an intuitive understanding of what the client has in mind, often recognising what they actually aspire to seeing in an image before they realise themselves. Such is what makes Adam exceptional in his field - he delivers to a brief, but still gets the absolute most out of that brief.

I have no hesitation in recommending Adam for any professional photography needs anyone might have."

Mike England, UK Vaccines Medical Director - GlaxoSmithKline UK

Adam did an outstanding job for our wedding in September 2012 in Ibiza.
We live in the UK and the wedding took place in Spain. Adam was recommended to us by friends and we met him beforehand in Spain where he listened to our thoughts and preferences for the day. He also made great suggestions we hadn’t thought about. We had good continuous contact by email and telephone and Adam was available for discussion in the months before the event which, again, reassured us.
On the day Adam was incredibly professional, completely inconspicuous and the taking of the photographs did not detract from the party in any way and that’s tribute to his skill to just blend in and gently direct the crowd.
The quality of the photography was amazing and not only did Adam deliver what we had requested beforehand he went above and beyond with creative and spontaneous shots that captured the mood and flow of the day, which is priceless. Our album was just perfect and friends and family have commented on the great photographs and how easy they are to access from Adam’s website.
In summary a wedding day is such a special day and we feel Adam captured the essence of it and did a fantastic job leaving us and our guests with photos that take you right back to day itself. We cannot thank Adam enough for what he has delivered and We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Thank you,
Mike and Dov


Tanya Layzell-Payne - Villa owner in Ibiza

...I want to tell you how incredible your photos are of our house. It isn't an easy house to photograph. You put so much of your time and real effort into that shoot - Ant and I were so impressed by your work.
The photos and the video are just fab!


Joe and Kat  -  Wedding couple

Many of our guests commented on what a nice chap you are and how you put them at complete ease - the photos reflect this and you are clearly a top photographer.

We have just arrived home and looked through the pictures.
They are amazing, so happy with them already and know that the rest are going to be great!
Our families commented on how lovely you were and Joe thinks you are awsome.
Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.
We are toasting you with wonderful fizz as I type.

The photos are fabulous...What a difference. I really love them: The previous photos did not make full justice to the villa, now the problem for the villa is to make justice to your photos ;-))"

CJ Eperon - Private party


Fantastic thank you. We've had a huge response and everyone loved the photo's.


Roland Topf - Owner at Honkey Tonk Productions

It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation for Adam Johnston as aside from being a good friend I have watched his professional career as a photographer grow at an incredible rate of knots these past few years. As a friend he is loyal, diligent, reliable, accountable, efficient, caring, and trustworthy all of which he carries through to his professional side.

I have taken on Adam to photograph events and weddings that we have been a part of and his keen eye and unique spin on things that most photographers would miss ensure that you not only get classic highly polished images you also get something quite unique and outstanding.

I obviously have no hesitation in recommending Adam for any photography whether still or action shots

“If you need a great photographer Adams your man. From action skiing shots to moody Mediterranean sunrises.”


Silke Reitz - Private client

Dear Adam, this was the best shooting I ever had. You have the things a really good photographer needs to have: passion, the sense of the right moment, and the feeling for people. All of your pics tell a story and show expressive emotions. You catched my personality in many ways and touched my heart with the pics. I thank you very much for that and I am looking forward working with you again. Greetings from Germany.


Alan Moynihan - Sales & Marketing Director, Highlife Ski & Snowboard

‘In our business, it’s really important that our customers get a very good picture of what they can expect when they stay in our chalets and Adam’s photography has been a real help in this respect. Adam’s approach is also very efficient which means he can cover a lot in a relatively short time. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.’

Adam was great at understanding our requirements (even when briefing him over the phone for a ski shoot from the UK!). He worked with our staff really well to get some amazing shots and also suggested some really different shots that will be fabulous for the many brochures we produce.
 Every time we receive the download link from Adam after a shoot we are always 100% happy.

Coming in first was Adam Johnston... monochrome photo of British freeskier Nick Southwell, taken off piste in Verbier in late February after a fresh powder dump,

“The image is artistically composed and strong in tone and works effectively in black and white” commented competition judge Vanessa Fry. “I particularly like the high level contrasts and the natural use of light and dark which gives the image a sense of drama”.
