I am a full-time professional photographer, mainly shooting studio/family portraits, private commissions, weddings and events.
I use my Purestorm profile specifically for glamour and art work, I keep my commercial website completely separate.
I have 15 years experience in this business and worked with many excellent models (both professional and amateur), shooting at all levels.
All work I produce is to a high standard and professionally edited.
I have a permanent studio room at my spacious home in Liverpool, with full pro lighting (bowens), a range of backdrops, and a separate changing room for models - all my profile images are taken here.
I also shoot on location in the right weather.
I can provide plenty of references and have full Enhanced CRB clearance.

I have a number of models that I work with on a very regular basis to fill paid shoots.
When offering paid shoots I always give first refusal to models I have already worked with.
Unless I state otherwise prior to the shoot, images from my all paid shoots are used for private/commissioned sale or for website content. Model release forms will be asked for if required and can be discuseed prior to shoot.

As I do this for a living I do not often work tfcd, but I will occasionally offer tfcd to help models give their portfolio a more professional look or on a particularly interesting theme. I will only do this if I feel the quality we would achieve would make the shoot worthwhile for both of us.

Any models in the northwest area interested in working with me, then feel free to contact me with your ideas etc.
Before arranging a shoot with me, please note the following:

If I am paying you for a shoot I expect you to act professionally. If you want to spend the time texting your friends and staring at the clock then you are definitely not somebody I want to work with.

I will no longer provide models with images from paid shoots - that is what part-paid and tfcd shoots are for. I retain full ownership and copyright for images from paid shoots and stealing them from my profile or website will be treated seriously.

For various reasons I do not work with models who are using false tan lotions and sprays (St Tropez etc.).

If after reading my profile and feedback you still feel the need to bring a chaperone to my shoots then we are very unlikely to work together. This can be negotiated in certain circumstances so if in any doubt then please just ask.

I always have work available for the right models (particularly custom/commissioned shoots), but please do not waste my time. Over the years I have heard every excuse from car broke down to dog ate the directions. I now operate a general rule, if you cancel an arranged shoot at the last minute then I will never offer you work again, so please bear that in mind when booking - I keep all communication relating to bookings as evidence, and I WILL add negative feedback to your profile.

I am so glad Jay booked me for a shoot with him yesterday.
In fact, this was our second shoot together. The first shoot having been some years ago.
However it is always a pleasure to shoot with him.
Jay has excellent pre-shoot comms, takes fab pictures and is friendly and chatty. its everything you want from a shoot.
Thanks again.

I had yet another great shoot with jay :) I always love working him have done for a few years now and it just gets better he has taught me a lot and always get some amazing images.
As usual I felt totally comfortable all the way through even though this time I was trying out new styles of modelling.
Jason is a very professional 'tog that always knows how to get great results.
I'd recommend any models to work with him including those new to modelling as he's patient and very helpful when trying out new things!
