John Boaz is an 2x award winning photographer who graduated from Birmingham City University in 2019 with a degree in Visual Communication (Photography). He is primarily a editorial portrait & documentary  photographer. Based in Northamptonshire UK.

In January 2024 it was announced that John was a winner in the Portrait of Britain Vol 6 portrait award by British Journal of Photography. John also had two winning portraits and one shortlisted in Portrait of Britain Vol 5 in January 2023.

'It seems like John is constantly gripped by moments of beauty and poetry, creating contemplative work that perhaps seems closer to the practice of painting than the networked form of photography that has become ubiquitous today. In a sublime, almost pastoral moment, his photographic eye was awakened'. “I was originally captivated by photography on a beautiful evening with the golden hour-light streaming through rolling fields whilst deer were grazing on the field,” John tells It’s Nice That. “I asked one of my friends if I could use their camera. I was so captivated by the beautiful light.” - It's Nice That, Alif Ibrahim.
