Experience:
I've been shooting since the 80s, I studied photography to HND in the 90s, I had my own darkroom until '98 before going digital after a house move.

I'm happy working with models at all levels of ability from beginners to professionals and at all levels. I don't like putting a round peg in a square hole so I tend to shoot whatever style best suits the model's look, especially if I'm shooting portfolio work.

I shot bands for a while but I don't do that any more.

I've recently relocated to the Lake District.
 
Comments:
I enjoy shooting the following:
Fashion - mostly casual/lifestyle and outdoor fashion.
Glamour - anything from clothed to fully nude, more than happy to shoot 'implied'.
Alternative - anything from fashion to nude.
I quite like fun shoots too, it doesn't always have to be serious!

I'm comfortable with nudity and most fetish themes.

I prefer to shoot on location whether that's inside or out, natural light or artificial. I have a particular fondness for available light and mixed lighting, ambient light and fill flash. I have a portable mains powered studio flash kit for indoor location work and several small handheld strobes for outdoor location work.

I'm happy working with amateur or professional models and have a lot of experience of working with beginners.

I don't have a problem with models wanting to bring a chaperone.

I have worked with Rich numerous times.
In fact, he did my first ever shoot, so i actually have a hell of a lot to thank him for.
His eye for an amazing photo is exceptional, the standard and quality of his shots are outstanding and to top it all off he's a thoroughly charming gentleman. Highly recommended. Don't miss out on working with this talented guy....you won't regret it!
