Experience:
Due to busy work commitments I've not had as much oppertunity to take pictures. Very much a hobby, but like to be as professional in my approach to photoraphy. Now with a little more time looking forward to taking more pictures in the next few months.
 
Comments:
Amature photographer. Looking for more experience in all genre of photography. Enjoy learning new techniques and working with people. Open to ideas and concepts. Like a lot of people I suppose I'm looking for the original which is often elusive. However I do find I'm more and more influenced of the styles and fashions of previous generations.

I also love the work of other photographers. I think it is good to be as original and creative as possible, but also it is good to be inspired by other photographers. I have no wish to emulate, but draw inspiration and love the work of photographers such as Cecil Beaton, Man Ray, Helmut Newton, Bill Brandt and Lee Friedlander to name a few.

Without wishing to sound pompous and recognising my experience is limited in working with models, I guess I would say my approach is I like shoots to tell a story. It's even better if the model has an input in that process. It doesn't need to make any formal sense, but if there is a narrative and direction there it is good to go for it.

I realise my portfolio is limited here as it reflects my resources so hiring a model and studio is a bit of a luxury at the moment. But if you like what is written here and you like my images I am always happy to talk to people about potential ideas or collaborations.

I worked with Murphyspal on a Film Noir inspired shoot in Glasgow this month.
Colin and I had good communication prior to the shoot, planning outfits and sharing ideas. Colin was a pleasure to work with. Very easy going and a true gentleman.
I would absolutely recommend working with Colin to other models.
Lovely guy and great photographer.

Thanks Colin.

All the best,
True

I had a great shoot with Colin. He was very professional and polite. During the shoot he contributed ideas and described certain shots he was looking for. He was fun to work with and because of this before we knew it the shoot was over. I would highly recommend working with Colin and I hope to do so again myself. Great Tog.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with this lovely man. I did a tour in scotland and colin booked me up for a couple of hours at a lovely well equipped studio. Colin was great to work with and totally genuine, he had great ideas and directed well. After the enjoyable shoot had ended, he kindly offered to walk me to my car, when i stupidly forgot where i actually parked it lol so he came with me to find it which took a good 20mins!! so bless him for doing that. so all in all he is a lovely man and would highly recommend to all models for a relaxed comfortable shoot!

Colin was reliable and so easy to work with. He was patient and listened to lots of ideas and communication throughout the whole process, all ensuring we both got what we wanted from the shoot. This was a varied and fun shoot and I felt Colin understood the story behind each concept. I certainly wouldn't say no to working together again.
