The Man:
I am best described as a fifty nine year old grizzly bear, without the fur coat. I am told that I have a great sense of humour, am easy to work with and reflect my passion for photography in my lifestyle. I am also C.R.B. (Criminal Records Bureau) vetted.
The Photographer:
One - who neither desires nor claims any of the titles of amateur, semi professional or professional.
I believe that the ingredients essential to creating great photographs is THE LOVE OF MAKING THEM; and above all – I endeavour to NEVER, EVER allow myself to forget that photography is about PASSION, CREATIVITY, and most of all FUN.
Natural photography – I prefer to use natural light, actual locations and models. I am actively seeking to develop the technical aspects of my photographic skills so that I do not rely totally on my instincts.
Real models? - People who want to be an active participant in a creative experience. I enjoy and respond creatively to the active participation of the model in the shoot. This can be great fun, but exasperating when the ‘model’ just ‘poses’.
Generally - the shoots take place at the model’s, the models friend’s home or at an outdoor location. I have a portable lighting system and will use this where required. Other locations are available but require advance notification before they can be used.
TFP/CD work:
I believe that we need to constantly be assisting "newbie’s" to present their portfolios in the best, most cost effective way possible. I prefer the model to arrange her makeup, styling and clothing as this helps with keeping costs down. I also remember how difficult it was to get my foot on the first rung of the ladder.
So how does TFP/CD help you? Well you get the photographs you want and I get the portfolio I desire.
BY the way - TFP does not mean Time for Payment!!
PAID work:
I will undertake paid work where the model desires copyright of the photographs. My rates are reasonable – just ask me for them. I am open to negotiating my rates if the photographs will enhance my portfolio. For instance, I will discuss sharing the costs where specific high value items are required for the shoot.
Genres & Themes:
All genres and themes will be considered. I am always seeking new projects. So if you have specific ideas in mind then get in contact and let us see whether or not we can turn those ideas into reality.
I specialise in Boudoir work for ladies wanting that special gift!
If you are younger than 18, you must have written parental consent and be accompanied by a friend /chaperone at all times.

My thanks to all of the models who took part.
So if you are just starting out or just want to develop your portfolio then get in contact.

New ideas that I would like to translate into great photographs.
Any model or MUA interested; please contact me.
"Retro make up in Portraits",
"Versatile Faces" - One woman. Using make up techniques, wigs and anything else that comes to hand to demonstrate that the same woman can present herself in many ways.,
"Candid camera" - freestyle shoot in a bedroom, bathroom, etc. Now I know that most women only want to be photographed when all made up and dressed to the nines - this is a CHALLENGE to have the photographer and model work together to present what the assets that Mother Nature gave her at their best.
"Marlene Dietrich" 2008. This would be a project to reshoot some of her styles, make up , etc.
Ladies wanting "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" Boudoir shoots please feel free to contact me.

John is an incredibly tallented photographer, well respected in the industry, and I thoroughly enjoyed my shoot with him for very classy upmarket portraiture/glamour.

I worked with John at a great location in London. The shoot was thoroughly enjoyable which made the time fly by! He has some great ideas and also allows the model to be creative with make up and styling. Pre-communication with John was excellent and he took the time to explain exactly how he likes to work, which I found very useful. He is by far one of the most organised photographers I have worked for! John is not only professional and creative but polite, considerate and friendly. All of these attributes make for a first class shoot! Highly recommended.

I had a shoot with John in late may and really really enjoyed it! He made me feel comfortable and he was super super organised - always in touch letting me know his thoughts and asking any questions he needed answering. I really lloked forward to the shoot and on the day I certainly wasn't let down! He sorted out the location and a MUA for me - I felt like.... a model! Brilliant - thanks John :)
