John Reyment

B.Bus Mgt (QUT)
M. Photog (AIPP)

Since the dawn of time, people have been communicating with and inspiring each other by sharing stories.

In this digital age where our attention is increasingly difficult to capture and maintain, John believes story telling is a great way to cut through, communicate authentically, build relationships and share knowledge and experiences.

John has worked in large organisations, the public sector and small business with careers in banking, training and development, organisation development, management consulting and managing his own small business. John’s career journey has equipped him with the skills and experience to consult with business leaders to design and undertake strategic, story telling photo shoots that deliver emotive images that businesses use to communicate authentically with their community.

John works across a variety of industries, he is particularly passionate about food photography and the hospitality industry.

John’s personal interests include his family, travel, food and wine. His home made wood fired pizzas are a family favourite! John is also a keen V8 Supercars fan, making the “pilgrimage” to the Bathurst 1000 when his busy schedule permits.

Karen Reyment

It brings me in contact with producers, chefs and artisans and satiates my craving for taste, texture and discovery. To write about and share my experiences with readers, surely this is bliss.”
