I cant recommend John highly enough. He is so approachable, funny and professional at the same time. He makes you feel at ease straight away and this makes for the wonderful portraits he shoots. If you are remotely thinking of a portrait for yourself, family or even pet you wont be disappointed with Johns work.

Down to earth friendly funny guy who makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet him. Very professional and his work is outstanding. I would recommend you give him a call before trying anywhere else.

Whether you’re after a portrait of the real you, a more flattering version, or something in between, Bentley is your man. Genius with a camera and a decent bloke. He will bring out the narcissist in you!

Not for the faint hearted or those that want a posed and perfected airbrushed finish. But if your looking for real life emotion, expression and dark true grit with honest, humorous sometimes borderline personality hes definitly your man. Saying that please don't be put off apparently he's wonderful with children and pets too but you'll surely get more than you bargained for with this man. It'll be real honest and not perfect and pretty. Whatever your looking for you won't be disappointed .

John is a friendly guy who gets to know is clients so that they feel relaxed. When he took my photos he made feel welcomed and got me relexed for the shoot. I had a great time and the final pieces where amazing.

Absolutely stunning photos. I cannot believe how good they are - and no airbrushes involved. John makes you feel so at ease and is an all round Nice Guy. I have seen photos of a few friends and they are all amazing

John is a skilful photographer, and a lovely bloke. I have a terrible time in front of the camera but he managed to make my face look alright and I have a headshot I'm happy with!

It was an excellent experience for us and our very timid Yorkshire terrier Betsy, the photos are amazing she looks like a supermodel.

I was lucky enough to be invited for a portrait sitting with John and Co. OK what do I wear? Erm help.. Hmm. This too me felt so alien. Panic! set in. I needn't have worried.. I arrived it took 15 mins.. And they had me eating out of the palms of their hands.. I felt relaxed, and a cliche, I know, but I felt like I had known them forever. We laughed all afternoon.. Don't be afraid to grab the steam punk hat best prop ever.. Or anything that lying around.. Thanks John enjoyed the afternoon, more than I envisaged!! Looking forward to picking up my print.. I will be back.. Anth. X Professional and fun..

Thank you for giving me these very special memories of my very very precious Sid. He passed away peacefully yesterday surrounded by the love he deserved. He loved visiting your studio. I can't thank you enough. x

I took part in John's Project 22, I'll admit that am not a fan of having my photo taken, or even looking at my own photo, but John put me at ease and the photos he took are my favourite of myself, even the ones with my glasses (not often I don't wear them, never mind have a photo taken without them). He also took some photos of my son and was very patient with him.

Came in for a charity project John was working on. He's lovely and put me at ease straight away, I really enjoyed the experience. The quality of the photos is really good and the the price is good too. We had a slight issue with the money being taken twice however John rectified this and even gave us a free print for the inconvenience. Really good of him! He again went above and beyond when I lost my digital prints, he found my gallery and resent it to me. I would definitely recommend him 😁

Met John whilst he was doing a charity photograph event, so when I decided I wanted some graduation photos he was the first to pop to mind. Setting up an appointment and going for the photos were really easy and simple. The photo shoot was just a constant stream of laughter - he even made my Nana very welcome. The shoots he took were amazing and more than I could have ever described to want. But when the photos were printed they were breathtaking. My only side comment is that I think John belongs on a talk show with all his memories and opinions, but without that talk we wouldn’t have built up such an amazing rapport. Thank you again john, your work is outstanding and I am forever grateful xxx

John is a photographer who can accommodate anyone - young, mature, modern or prim and proper! Mum and I enjoyed our photo session with John as part of his charity drive for Lagan's Foundation. We are thrilled to have chosen 2 images each out of the many that John did for us... if only we could have bought the lot!

A wonderful guy who is hard working, loves his work and puts all his heart and soul into it. John made me feel extremely comfortable, so much so I went back for another sitting. His attention to detail is second to non. I would thoroughly recommend him. If you require a family portrait, a photo with your beloved, one of all your children etching then John is your guy and he'll put you at ease. I can't thank you enough.

John is a top guy who will make you feel relaxed and comfortable whilst remaining a true professional. The quality of his work is awesome and prices are reasonable too. If anyone asked me to recommend them a good photographer I would definitely recommend him ☺

John was doing a charity project that I volunteered for... I am not normally happy with having my picture taken as I have a surplus of chins and a face like a stuntman's knee but John soon put me at ease with his laid back manner and we had plenty of banter. His studio is very well set up and the images he captured were absolutely brilliant. I'd highly recommend FourTwographs to anyone. John's a top guy who'll make you feel at ease and capture your best side.

John immediately puts you at ease while he works his magic. His photographs do get the essence of his subject, particularly the eyes those windows to the soul. Some of the photos I have seen by John have a gritty earthy texture while others have the translucent feel of an old master. I will be going back for more and highly recommend his work
