Experience:
I have been taking and making photographs for over 20 years, deciding to turn my hobby into a full time commitment at the end of 2007.

My photography is used extensively to illustrate book covers. I have approximately 3 sales per week and have so far illustrated over 400 books in more than 20 countries. My work illustrates many subjects.

I was awarded the title '2012 Black and White Photographer of the Year' through Black + White Photography Magazine.

Several of my images have been shortlisted in international competitions and a selection are represented by galleries.

I am currently writing a 10 part series for Black + White Photography Magazine, hopefully providing a set of inspirational tutorials on photographic manipulation and creation.
 
Comments:
My work covers many genres as the book market covers many topics. My particular interests lie in post production and photo-manipulation - creating images that are magical, otherworldly or fantastical.

I have mainly photographed friends and family and feel I have reached a stage where it is important to photograph new people and introduce a greater range and diversity into my work.

My studio is based in the spare room at home with blackouts and two bright lights. I am afraid I cannot offer grand studio space at the moment. I compensate for this by creating other worlds from the photographs I take.

If photographing outside I live on the beautiful Isle of Wight with access to beaches, woods, countryside, etc...

I am happy to photograph up to implied / full nude if it is relevant to the image and the model is happy to do so. If a model wishes to remain clothed that is fine by me.

I am willing to consider TF work if it is mutually beneficial.

I require model release forms to be signed in order for me to use the images commercially after the shoot.

Clayton was a pleasure to work with and I really enjoyed the shoot. After picking me up from the catamaran pier and bringing me back to his home studio, we had a quick chat about ideas and themes for the shoot before getting going. He has a great creative mind and is very experimental, trying various set ups to get the right effect for different shots. He has a great collection of props, accessories and a fab wardrobe selection too. He was very pleasant, gave good direction and was also very encouraging when things were looking good. Would happily work with him again and recommend him to any other models that want to try something creative and different! Thanks Clayton!
