Check out my first video-shoot, with Raphaella
*** ***

7 years' experience of portraits, headshots, dance, music, weddings and commissioned shoots. Progressed to artistic nude photography in Feb 2010, and have achieved stunning results across 80 shoots, with renowned models down to beginners with potential.

I pride myself on the quality of my work, only producing professional results, from setting up the shot, all the way through to top quality post-processing. I'm passionate about capturing natural beauty, and creating images that evoke emotions.

I prefer to shoot TFCD, which isn't just a way of getting something for nothing. My shoots are usually around 4 hours long, and I provide the model with 50-100 of the very best photos, post-processed to the level shown in my portfolio.
I see TF* as a collaboration, where both the model and photographer get to work on each other's ideas, and both input their time and costs - I'm not looking to make money from models I want to work with, but similarly, don't want to lose money if a model approaches me for a TF shoot, so will expect coverage of studio costs only (my shooting & processing skill & time is the free part)

I prefer models with pale skin (I'm not a fan of fake tan), slimmer figures with some curves, and most importantly, a pretty face with the ability to put across a wide variety of facial expressions.

Non-Purestorm Feedback:

* Wow wow wow love them all!! Brilliant, thank you so much! -- Iveta Niklova

One of my photos, Maja, was selected by RANKIN and Tuuli for their new exhibition in September 2011.

* Dig The New Breed * - An exhibition of young fashion photographers curated by photographer Rankin, art director Tuuli, and in association with fashion showcase On|Off.
The work also features in On|Off’s limited edition Fanzine, for London Fashion Week 2011.
I've just moved to Vancouver, so won't be available for any UK shoots for the near future.

Otherwise, I'm always looking to capture the beauty of female muses: art nudes, fashion nudes, fashion, portraits, and dance.

My portfolio shows my artistic eye and technical ability (I'm definitely not a 'tog' or "guy with camera"), and am always looking for new models to work with as my muses.

I have worked with Pierus twice now and we have shot some great photos both times! Nice company, good work ethic and an eye for a good photo makes Pierus a photographer that I am happy to recommend.

Thanks very much,

Allegra x

Had such a brilliant time shooting with Pierus yesterday, pre-shoot communication was great, and everything was brilliantly planned. From the moment I arrived (which was way too early in the morning, sorry Pierus!!) I felt very welcomed and we had good chat about the shoot.
He gave me the freedom to come up with my own ideas/ outfits but also gave great direction.
I highly recommend working with Pierus and hope to do so again very soon :)

I contacted Claude as I had loved his pictures for a while and lucky enough he agreed to shoot me! He is incredibly friendly, down to earth and a right laugh! Claude is a extremely good photographer but he was also considerate of what I wanted to try and create also, giving me some great advice and pushing me to improve in a very charming way :)
Cannot wait to shoot with him again and I have previewed some of the pictures which I am soo excited about.

He has created some stunning images of me that I am already struggling to decide between.
On top of that he is a great laugh and really enjoyed working with him.
Really do hope I get to work with him again, and without a doubt would recommend him to anyone!
