I can't express enough how awesome The Rawson Partnership has been to work with. #John Rawson #mirrorawardin #northernIrelandawardin #Irerishhairdressingawardin
Candice Wyatt-Minter, Wyatt Hairdressing, South Africa


Working with the Rawson Partnership team was fantastic experience. John immediately made me feel at ease and comfortable. His open approach made me able to express my artistic ideals for the project. John's understanding of hair allowed me to use him as a creative sounding board. Cant wait for our next project together."
Candice Wyatt-Minter, Wyatt Hairdressing, South Africa


"John is not only incredibly talented, but is very kind hearted and puts you at so much ease even during a stressful time during a shoot. From the very beginning of communicating and plotting, through all the way to the end of finalizing the images, John is consistently very professional, efficient, and motivating. His creative eyes and abilities has definitely brought my visions come to life so beautifully in a way I never thought it could."
Mio Sota @ Trio, Chicago


"Working with John and all of his team is such a complete dream! The communications from the office and myself was always punctual, even to letting me know when they would be away- but still responded when possible! Working with John was a wonderful experience, especially being our first time together. He gave me such a down to earth, low key vibe, but creates such strong and stunning images! I instantly knew when I started seeing the images that this was going to be a brilliant shoot- and it was! John was able to give me great ideas and suggestions, and worked fabulously with all of the models- both seasoned and new faces, which is a talent in itself. I enjoyed working with him so much, I've already recommended him to many other friends and co-workers- and they are all just as excited to work with him soon as well!!"
Chad Demchuk, Dallas, USA

"Words cannot express how thankful and grateful my wife and I are to have worked with you all a few weeks ago. I love the way that you all worked so cohesively, welcomed us with open arms, and integrated your visions and inspirations with ours.

John, it was so nice to be able to work with someone who could read my mind and produce such stunning photographs. You have continued to inspire me, ever since I first started hairdressing school in London, and working with you further demonstrated your natural eye for beauty and expertise in this field.

Gaynor and Paul - Thank you so much for planning, organizing, and doing all the little things that were essentially for the efficiency of the photoshoot, I really appreciate everything that you both have done!"

His approachable nature and down to earth style makes him a joy to work with and his ability to bring our vision and concepts to life means that we always know we are working with a true expert. John’s a perfectionist, whose photographic work is always executed to the highest of standards”
Akin Konizi, HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year and Hob’s International Creative Director


“John’s knowledge of hair is second to none and therefore the perfect complement to his creative eye. He knows where to find the beauty in a model and then deliver that in the final image. Models love working with him as do all my team and frankly I wouldn’t work with anyone else.”

To balance what is an extremely professional set up, John and his team bring a relaxed energy to the studio/shoots. His eye for shape and light enables a strength and beauty in his images, which allows us to push the boundaries with our photographic work. Although John’s history as a hairdresser adds greatly to any hair shoot his work crosses over to fashion effortlessly.”

“I have only just started working with John Rawson from The Rawson Partnership but on our first meeting we immediately clicked. I knew then that the images he would shoot for my hair competition would be great! but I was blown away as they turned out to be absolutely amazing!!! Having worked with a number of known photographers that I thought were good look insignificant to John, he is what is known as a true professional, a rarity not only is he a visionary genius but his finished photography work of hair is the best I’ve ever seen. So if you’re looking for high-end imagery I would highly recommend working with him any day of the week.”
Charlotte Mensah
Winner Afro Hairdresser of the Year BHA 2013 & 2014



"Working with John this year for the first time has been an amazing process. Right from the very beginning when my collection was at the concept stage John and his team have been there to offer advice and fresh ideas. My shoot this year was definitely one of my least stressful and most enjoyable as I felt I was in a safe hands. I am overjoyed with the results and the collection as a whole (which up until now has always been an issue for me). To top it off he is a great guy who instantly puts you at your ease but will also push you creatively to get the best shot you could ever hope for."

All our collections have been widely used in the press, resulting in front several covers.

“All the way from Japan to UK is quite long distance and take so much time. Also there are many hairdressing photographers in Japan BUT it is definitely worthwhile to shoot with John. I could see a different level of a hairdressing photography, his work is smart and effective and we can expect satisfying results.
If you wish to stand out from the crowd definitely shoot with John, as a result I am a finalist in the Japanese Hair Awards with my collection featured in worldwide magazines... Absolutely amazing!!”

“What could have been a total nightmare, shooting during the first week of the Olympics, turned into breeze with the support of The Rawson Partnership. Most important was the attention to detail on the adventure of putting all the elements of the shoot together and providing a great overview of all the best faces in London with John Rawson’s recommendations at the model casting.
Communication was very strong and the look and feel of the shoot was established easily as John has a very strong sense of fashion & style with a fantastic eye and gets beautiful looks very quickly”.

"Endorsements often sound a bit flakey, but this is one I can set about with gusto! I've worked with John for the past 9 years......through major manufacturers, session-savvy hairdressers and shoots with those who are just starting out on the photographic journey. The stand-out that John has is that whoever he works with feel on top of the world when they leave that shoot and secure in the knowledge that they have produced shots that have delivered on their objectives. John's experience, unsurpassed photographic skills and fantastic post-production are all great reasons to work with him and the team"
Louise Wood, LWPR
