John Everard was a notable British photographer of nudes from the late 1920s until the early 1960s. Numerous collections of these black-and-white photographs were published in thin (and some not-so-thin) volumes. Everard was a fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography (FBIPP).

Everard had a studio in Orange Street, London and was self-taught. The book 'Second Sitting' featured photographs of a young Pamela Green. As early as 1939, Walter Bird, John Everard and Horace Roye had decided that they were giving each other too much competition. To resolve that difficulty they decided to cooperate, and they set up a company called Photo Centre Ltd. They made their headquarters in a suite of rooms above Walter Bird's studio in Savile Row, and Eves without Leaves was their first joint publication.
