John - When I left tonight I was so
exhausted--not just physically but emotionally as well (something I had
SO not anticipated). I was so overwhelmed I wasn't able to hug you
goodbye. I had emotions that I still have not been able to put in place.
I actually had to sit in the car and cry...not from sadness but coming
from someplace else. I do know that you have made it so I could begin to
look at myself differently...It is like a door unlocked in me
tonight...leaving me with overwhelming but
amazing feelings. Thank you for being a part of that experience. You
were amazing. Words just stop in my throat but I can say THANK YOU! I
will never forget what you have made possible for me.

"I love to work with John. He is so much
fun and I always get back great images. He knows how to make a shoot
fun with silly props and ideas which always make for fun images. Its not
too often you find a photographer that can get super awesome images and make
the shoot enjoyable at the same time. I always look forward to working with
John when I'm in Seattle. His images are some of my best work on my portfolio
and I'll always keep them up."
"John is my all time
favorite photographer, not only for his fantastic skill behind the
camera but also his ability to be playful while remaining professional.
I've never felt more comfortable with another photographer, posing nude
or dressed. Whether its underwater, fine art, portraits, performance, or
maternity, John has put me at complete ease and delivered some of the
best work I've ever seen. I now cannot imagine Seattle without him and I
do see John as a part of my Seattle family."
"John Cornicello is not only a highly
skilled and creative photographer, he has the charm, grace, and maturity
to make you comfortable expressing yourself in front of the camera. My
session with him fulfilled my wish for gorgeous, sexy portraits that
show me at my best!"
" I always look forward to modeling
for John because he is great at making a shoot fun. It is easy to feel
comfortable around him even from the first time you meet and work
together. On the other hand he is also exceedingly professional and
always treats his models with the most respect."
"Who knew taking your clothes off in front of a near stranger could be THIS much fun!
"The experience of doing a pin-up
shoot with John was way more fun than I could have
anticipated! We didn't really know each other, aside from a handful of
casual conversations. His calm demeanor put me at ease right from the
start. The nerves I felt were more the excited kind, anticipating the
surprise when my husband sees the book of prints for our 10th wedding
anniversary. He loves seeing my curves in lingerie (and bless him for
that!), so this seemed like an appropriate way to give back to the man I
adore. Because I love dressing up (or down as the case may be here) I
enjoyed that part, but as an amateur model, I didn't know how to
position my body for the camera, John had great suggestions of how to
hold my arms, or place my feet, or look to the light, that really
complimented my figure. The results didn't just impress the man in my
life, but admittedly, I'm a little smitten with them too. It's a
fabulous feeling to let go, and let a professional like John capture
your essence and express whatever mood is true for you. It was such a
rush, I kinda want to do it again..."
