Experience:
Hello, I have been shooting with various Olympus DSLRs since 2006. Having enjoyed working with several amateur models, I want to get back into taking pictures on a more regular basis. Over the years, I have taken on many photoshoots involving local models - both professional and amateur, as well as friends and family. I enjoy taking on a variety of assignments, and have done fashion, swimwear, lingerie, glamour, topless and art-nude photography, and like most photograpers - obviously - the odd wedding!

I have worked with complete beginners all the way to very experienced models. I am happy to work with the models with little or no experience of modelling who may need some help with direction to those who have huge amounts of experience.

Hello, I have been doing shoots with models for quite a few years, and am happy to do TFP/TFCD or paid. I want to keep photography as an enjoyable hobby, and so want keep a relaxed atmosphere. I am also reliable and well organised, am friendly and easy going. I have a small portfolio available online showing a few of the pictures that I've taken. I always am looking to keep improving in my photography.

Whilst I am quite creative and have lots of ideas for shoots, I am more than happy for the model to make suggestions. I am a photographer because I love taking pictures and get a lot of satisfaction out of the creative process. I am particularly interested in shooting on location, in and around buildings, especially those that are disused and derelict. My preference is for fine-art style shoots.

For TFP/TFCD shoots, I am very happy to spend time going through the pictures with the model at a later date for the model to have an input to choose which images and how they would like them to be edited.

Incidentally, I am also interested in cars, I am happy to involve my cars from time to time - that is if the model is interested. (I usually have a couple of interesting cars such as sports cars, convertibles etc, that would make appealing props for models to pose in and around!)

I can shoot from the models home, travel or on location and possibily arrange transport. I will be adding to my portfolio as I undertake more photoshoots and will be offering further shoots on a TFP/TFCD basis or paid or a mixture. If you are interested in working with me, please get in touch.

As I have a full time job, and a busy part time business, as well as several hobbies and interests in addition to photography, I only arrange a few shoots at a time! I am very selective when contacting models, so will be grateful if do choose to reply!

Thank you for reading.

Frank is absolutely great to work with. Arrived with plenty of time to spare, and completely prepared for the shoot. An absolute gentleman and true professional. I recommend him highly and would happily work with him again in the future.
