Bragging Rights

Working for the famous Time Magazine in New York has been a stand out achievement but John has and does also work for many other leading news organizations including News Limited. In his 30 year career, John has seen some major developments in technology and the way images and vision can be produced and transmitted to the world. He recalls working through Africa and having to carry hundreds of rolls of film and trying to transmit vision from disaster zones via dodgy satellite equipment and even setting up makeshift darkrooms while on the road to process film. John explains that all these techniques are obsolete now with the advent of extensive phone networks that can be utilized to transmit vision and images at lightening speed and even facilitate live broadcasts from some of the most remote regions on the planet. John embraces new technology and is always on the lookout for new technology he can develop for use in his business.
