I've been in the business for over 30 years photographing people from all walks of life.I have covered a lot of fashion and cat walk shows, I specialise in photographing people in their own home or environment and use locations as well. I have a lot of experience in posing and how to make the most of props. I have a full flash studio set up that I can put up in the smallest of places. If any budding models would like to get together to increase their portfolio please give me a call. If you would like portfolio shoot I can do a full set with various outfits and backgrounds for £90.00. this includes 15 12x9 photos of your favorite pics fully retouched and professionally printed on photographic paper.
My interests are varied and I like to look for something different. I enjoy using photoshop and experimenting with different techniques. If you want to try anything new then get in touch. If you do make a booking please be prepared to communicate.

I am in the process of making a new website for this side of my photography. It will be called Satin Pix

Had a fabulous fashion shoot with Dave and a male model earlier this week around the streets of Liverpool then by a local lake.
After working with Dave so many times, I just know the images will be amazing.
He is a true gentleman and a great friend. Very professional, friendly, trustworthy, gives great direction... The list goes on. Never disappoints, if you are lucky enough to work with him, jump at it. It will be the best thing for you and your portfolio in a long time. 5 stars xxxxx

I had the pleasure of shooting for the second time with Dave at my home last week.
I remembered from our first shoot together that Dave was a lovely, friendly photographer so I couldn't wait for our second shoot and he definitely didn't disappoint.
The shoot in my opinion was a complete success. Im sure Dave will have got some great images. He came fully prepared with plenty of ideas, all of them fantastic.
It was a great shoot with a great photographer. Thanks again.

Worked with Dave on a couple of occasions now and I have to say he is one of my favourite photographers! His work is some of the best in my port. He is a lovely man and always has some great ideas, he gives direction well and also listens to the models input too. Highly recommend!
