Experience:
General
Once, having read my profile you would like to work with me let me know to see if we can set up a shoot in the near future. I have been photographing since 1975 and I have just retired (May 2011)and as a result had to give up my studio and active membership to the NUJ (Manchester Branch).

My main interest in Photography is Lingerie and I was retained by an agency to cover the Lingerie shows in Harrogate/ London and the Swimwear show in London. During the summer months I concentrate on Wildlife, Motor Sports (Cars, Bikes and Boats) where I am on retention for a couple of Racing teams as well. I have already secured a commission from a racing team to cover their activities in Europe and the UK. Finally, I also photograph Military Aircraft for which I have been published in National Newspapers. I am also have accredited fashion photography certificates. I take my photography very seriously and am always professional, although I do try to keep shoots light hearted and fun.

I do not use Photoshop at all which I leave to competent graphics designers.

Studio sessions
The photo shoots last up to 4 hours depending on level. If you are interested in doing a shoot with me please let me know so I can then arrange a date and time as well as a shoot profile so you can see what I am trying to achieve.

Profile and References
You will also be able to see references left by other Purestorm models. I have used other non-Purestorm models and I would be happy to supply details should you feel it necessary. I am also known at WPS (142134) in Worksop having used their studio until I started to use my own studio. I have also used other studios such as CStudios (154078) in Wigan as well as non Purestorm Studios in Bolton, Bristol and Aberdeen.

Planning
As you can appreciate I try to spend a lot of time planning the photo shoot so that you know what I am trying to achieve and it also gives you a chance to let me know before the shoot if there is anything that you are not happy about. Once you have shown your interest, I will work on the details of the photo shoot and you will be sent a PDF of the shoot profile.

As Purestorm does not allow attachments it would help, but not necessary, to know your email address so that I can send PDF documents for you to see before the photo shoot.
A sample profile can be seen >> http://www.skid2me.co.uk/skid/family/studio/sample.pdf

Clothes
I usually supply the clothes as I have a large range of clothes as I know the sort of images I am wanting to create. The photographic wardrobe consists of over 200 dresses, skirts, blouses, swimwear, sportswear and lingerie.

Fees
Please let me know how much you charge for a 2/3/4 hour session within the categories that you have listed in your profile. I am not interested in categories outside your profile. I am also happy, within reason, to pay travel costs.

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Had a fantastic shoot with Len today at Ian's Studio and loved every minute of it! He is a really nice guy, we had a great laugh and got on really well. He really know's what he's doing and has some really good idea's and gives good direction as well as letting me do my own thing.

Would thoroughly recommend him to any other model, he makes you feel so comfortable, pushes no levels and let's you be yourself and also excellent pre comms. Looking forward to seeing the pics as we got some fantastic ones. Look forward to work with Len again.

Thankyou Vicky xxx

Had yet another successful shoot with the lovely Len. It was our second shoot together and hopefully there will be many more. I find Len to be a genuine and friendly guy. He is great to chat to as well as work with. He brings out the best in me at our shoots. I could shoot all day with him!
This time round he wanted to check various shooting areas and lighting, so hopefully he achieved what he wanted to achieve.
His pre-shoot communication was fantastic like last time and once again the time flew by. A pleasure as always. Thanks Len.
