Experience:
I'm Laura, I'm 29 and live in West Lothian. I travel to Edinburgh and sometimes Midlothian. I don't drive and do all my travelling via buses, so I don't tend to go any further. I will gladly meet models travelling to Edinburgh at either the bus station or the Waverly train station. Space in my home is limited but I do have lights and backdrops, and the small space doesn't affect the final pictures. I enjoy shooting in model's own homes if not on location, for the background variety. I have had a lot of experience doing outdoor location shoots for 6 years with many different models, mainly fashion/clothed and alt. styles. I also have lots of experience doing shoots with models in their own homes, mostly lingerie/glamour levels. Photography is a much-loved pursuit of mine and I'm always looking to improve my portfolio and my experience.
 
Comments:
I normally shoot alongside my fiancé John, who is also a photographer (stphq) and models are welcome bring a chaperone to a shoot with us. When John and I shoot models together, the model will get images from both of us and feedback from us both. I do not allow chaperones when I'm shooting models by myself, this is a personal policy and non-negotiable.

I shoot models of pretty much any age so long as they're 18 or over, of any gender. I often shoot with newbies to get their portfolio going. Tattoos, piercings and scars/stretchmarks aren't usually an issue, but if scars are large/very prominent then please let me know of them beforehand. I'm easy-going and friendly and always aim to make models feel comfortable when shooting. Happy to hear from anyone looking to update/kick-start their portfolio, get a bit more experience or just to shoot for the fun of it. Model's own input is welcome.

**I now only work TF. I sometimes select clothes/jewellery to buy for selected shoots, if desired the model may keep these items from such shoots. I never give out unedited images, I always do some retouching. The photos from a TF shoot will be given to you via a private Skydrive link. However many final edits I end up with, you will get web-sized, watermarked versions of them all for use in your portfolio/personal promotion. Copyright remains with me unless expressly written otherwise and I do not permit the re-editing/altering of my images.**

I arranged a shoot with Purple_Girl and had great communication, she was very easy to discuss ideas with and we set up a great shoot.

I had great fun shooting with her, as she was a very professional photographer with great location ideas.

Laura and her fiancé (stphq) were a lot of fun to shoot with! Despite it being my first time, they made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Communication beforehand with Laura was great and I felt like I could ask them about anything I was unsure about. I had a great time and would definitely model for them again :)

I had yet again, another great shoot with Laura. Laura along with another photographer did my first photo shoot back in January 2010 and also done my 80th photo shoot in November 2012. Laura is very friendly, easy to work with, funny and has great ideas and locations for shoots. I would highly recommend this photographer to anyone wanting a relaxed and enjoyable shoot as the pictures are always great and you get the photos back within two weeks which is also great. Look forward to working with Laura again next year.
