Experience:
Although being qualified in Photography for over 30 years, I chose to work in the advertising industry as an Art Director for many leading London Advertising Agencies.

Max Operandi (my photographic name) has become renowned worldwide for Fine Art Nude images or "Nu Vintage Nude" as they have been labeled. Based in Northamptonshire only 45 mins from London, St Pancras, I have worked with many of the UK's finest Nude Models and my work has been featured in Exhibitions and Fine Art Magazines... I have also attracted a huge following of over 3.5 million visitors on my Redbubble site http://maxoperandi.redbubble.com

STUDIOS, MAKE-UP AND HAIR STYLISTS

The studios are warm, clean, private with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Most models like to do thier own make-up and I have a selection of non-allergenic make-p available. Stylist and MUA's can be brought in by request.

SEEKING COLLABORATORS

I am always looking for models, actors and dancers who would like to work with me on projects. Experience in performing arts may be helpful, but modeling experience is not always required as direction will be given. Most projects do not require working fully nude, but models should be comfortable and confident with their bodies and sexuality.

Since being on Purestorm I have been very lucky to work with some great models and I would like to thank them all for their hard work. Due to demand I now have to limit the number of TFCD shoot that I do, so please do not be offended if I have to decline any requests to do TFCD work. I am however looking to develop ongoing working relationships with a limited number of models who are happy to pose for high end Fine Art Nude experimental lighting projects. Perfect figures are not essential, but must have that X factor.

CHAPERONES

If you are going to be a professional model...do your research on the Photographer and the Models they have worked with. Like many other experienced Photographers who work in the Fine Art Nude field, we have a reputation to protect and always work on a strictly professional basis. If however you are under 20, even for fashion work, I always require a chapperone to be present.

Remember PURESTORM is your shop window, so lets make the most of it with some great images!

I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Ian recently, at his friend's incredible location and grounds. He had with him his photographer friend Jules, and together they worked on some beautiful outdoor nudes with me, making sure I was comfortable and happy throughout, putting me in some beautiful scenes and on some vintage props! I am definitely looking forward to the next shoot. Thanks!

Had a very great shoot with Max last thursday. He made me feel so at ease. Max is a very good professional photographer, with a lot of great ideas for creating amazing images. He is a respectful gentleman, patient, comfortable to work with and plenty of kindness.

Thanks a lot Max! Hope to see you soon!

Had a fantastic afternoon with Ian and model Joanna, at Winwick Hall, Amazing location, endless spots to shoot in. I really enjoy working with Ian as he takes time over the shot to get it right, rather than snapping away quickly. He gives great direction and takes an awesome shot! I would definately recommend working with him if you get the chance.
Thanks Jenna
