Also, several ongoing product projects and always on the lookout for the next shoot :)
I have been interested in shooting models for years now and have an ever growing and improving portfolio.
Currently I have no preferred style or genre and would like to give them all a go at some point. I do very much enjoy the editing process that follows a shoot (I'm a sucker for punishment) so most of my images are therefore modified to some level or another. To date I have only worked up to lingerie but would be willing to consider other levels if I felt it could be tastefully done and would benefit a particular shoot idea.

Currently between studios after mine was sold, but will be relocating to Solihull very soon and plan to have my own little studio space built on my new property.
Also more than happy to shoot on location and have been known to travel hundreds of miles for that perfect spot!

Nowadays I do not work alone, I usually have my wife by my side who assists, gives great creative directions, makes the tea and she is also currently training to be a make-up artist so we always have a large selection of make-up with us for models to either use themselves or if they like, my wife can do it for them.

What to expect if working with me & my wife;
- We're friendly & non pushy
- We always try to make the shoot fun, this seems to usually produce better images
- As much tea as you can stomach and usually at the very least a light snack at some point :-)
- We always forward 'all' edited images to models so they can choose whichever they want for their portfolios and also provide full size jpegs on a CD without our watermark spoiling them for you
- If you're not too far away we'll pick you up/drop you off

I recently worked with Jon and another photographer after filling a last minute carrying call. The shoot was arranged within the hour and his communication during this time was absolutely outstanding.

He was welcoming and gave me a tour of the fantastic location so that I was able to get some creative ideas before we started. Shooting with Jon was a lot of fun and I felt completely at ease. He allowed me to explore my own ideas and was 100% professional. I would love to work with Jon again and I couldn't recommend him enough. Top notch Tog *****

Had my first rooftop shoot with Jon yesterday and really enjoyed.
Managed to get some great shots in a short space of time. Very professional photographer with a likeable personality.

Communication skills were first class, highly recommended.

I have work with Jon 5 times now over the last year and a 1/2 and ever time he make me feel at home and can have a laugh which i think this gets the best images for me.

Marion is a MUA that works with jon when ever needed she is great to have there on the day to make the make up the best for every image :D
