Testimonial From Time Magazine Journalist Rory Callinan

"John Wilson has distinguished himself working for Time Magazine as a photojournalist and documentary photographer on many difficult and dangerous assignments. 

In February 2006, he accompanied me to the Solomon Islands to investigate the widespread exploitation of youth by multi-national logging and fishing concerns. If reporting this story was difficult then gaining photographic evidence seemed almost impossible but to John's credit, he shot extraordinary images one of which became a cover shot for Time. He faced almost impossible shooting conditions, working at night, on moving boats and confronting hostile subjects in the crewmembers who were involved. In May John accompanied me to East Timor to document the country's fall into anarchy.

His work was utterly professionalvisually spectacular and conducted in extreme and dangerous circumstances. During the period when rebels had encircled the capital Dili and were fighting with government troops, he was the first photographer to cross rebel lines and travel to the rebel headquarters where he took exclusive pictures of the rebel leader directing the battle. His images were of such high standard that they again were used on the cover of Time. John has the rare ability to read people and situations while at the same time utilizing the skills to get the shot that matters. The managing editor and I chose John for assignments at Time for his great skills not only in documentary and news photography but in the entire process of putting a magazine article to print and working in tough conditions with strict time constraints. I would have no hesitation in recommending John on any assignment. John Wilson is one of Australia’s leading and most accomplished photojournalists."
