Experience:
I have had a lot of experience doing outdoor location shoots for almost 5 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, mainly lingerie. Photography is a much-loved pursuit of mine and I'm always looking to increase my portfolio and my experience. Some of my work was recently featured in an edition of the online magazine 'Kultur Mag'. I dabble in creative make-up artistry on some shoots as it's another hobby of mine; my Model Mayhem MUA profile number is #2012563 for those that want a peek.

I mainly work TF* and I sometimes pay models with new clothes/jewellery as well as images. I do not 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; if necessary, a CD can be provided instead. However many final edits I end up with, you will get web-sized, watermarked versions of them all for use online. I will provide non-watermarked, high-res versions of up to 5 of the images if you want to print any. Copyright remains with me and I do not permit the re-editing or selling of my images.

 
Comments:
I'm 28 and live in Uphall, West Lothian. I often travel to Edinburgh and Midlothian also. 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 coming to Edinburgh from further afield by coach at the bus station, or the Waverly train station if arriving that way. I have a simple set-up with lights and backdrops at home, space is a bit limited but it doesn't affect the final images. I am very happy to shoot in a model's own home; I have excellent feedback from models whom I have worked with in their homes and I enjoy the background variety. I always welcome models sharing their own ideas to implement on shoots.

I normally shoot alongside my fiancé John who is also a photographer (username: stphq), as photography is something we have a shared love for, so I don't mind at all if models want to bring a chaperone to a shoot with us - please do let me know beforehand though. When John and I shoot a model together, the model will get images from both of us and feedback from us both also. I do not allow chaperones when I'm shooting models by myself, this is a personal policy and non-negotiable.

As well as the norm, I'm happy to photograph more mature models (no under 18s) and fuller-figured models, any gender. I don't mind tattoos, scarification or piercings; regular scars and stretchmarks aren't usually a problem either but if you consider them severe, please let me know beforehand. I'm easy-going and friendly to work with, and I always aim to make models feel comfortable when shooting, I think my recommendations reflect that. Happy to hear from anyone looking to update their portfolio, get a bit more experience or just to shoot for the fun of it.

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.
