Wanting to develop new hobbies after taking up early retirement, I joined Purestorm in March 2008 as very much an amateur and have used them ever since as my main source of models, trying to arrange shoots every few weeks, although health matters have sometimes led to frustratingly long gaps between shoots. While all my shoots to date have been highly satisfactory from my point of view and I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with a number of excellent and extremely friendly and helpful models (so much so that I have enjoyed repeat shoots with most of them), I remain very much an amateur but one who has now become even more enthusiastic about photography.

Having first purchased a top quality camcorder more than 20 years ago, I also have a long-standing interest in video photography and love to include video work as part of a shoot, wherever possible. I actually derive more satisfaction from video editing than photo editing, as I believe modern video editing software offers wider opportunities for creativity which extend to the audio as well as the visual side.

Because I am still gaining more experience and confidence in glamour photography, at this stage I continue to prefer the more relaxed environment of home shoots (which also has the benefit of allowing me to indulge in my interest in travel) but I would like to move eventually into studio work and location shoots.

I consider myself to be reliable, easy-going, respectful, polite and with a good sense of humour - at my age I have had plenty of practice at cultivating these characteristics ! More than anything, I want a shoot to be an enjoyable experience for both myself and the model while at the same time I also want to be pleased with, and proud of, the results.

Thanks for looking at this profile.

I have shot with Michael on numerous occasions now and I have to say that each shoot just gets better. It amazes me how we never run out of ideas!
Michael is one of the most lovely people I have had the pleasure of meeting and I always look forward to our shoots.
I have now lost count how many times we have worked together but I certainly hope that it never stops.
Michael always discusses his plans for the shoot in depth beforehand and his communication skills are first class.
Hope I haven't made him blush too much with this glowing reference but he definitely deserves the praise - oh and he makes a lovely cuppa.
Therefore I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any model.

Michael attended a group shoot at Elegance Studio where I was modeling in Bolton. He is a delight to work with, friendly, relaxed and polite. A real gentleman. He has sent me some excellent images today and I would recommend working with him to any model. It was my first topless shoot and he was both encouraging and helpful, giving direction when needed. I look forward to working with Michael again in the future! x

He is a very friendly,chatty guy and is good at giving direction or just letting you pose naturally and freely. Hopefully will see some great images from last night and i would recommend :) many thanks
