Experience:
I've been a keen photographer for over 35 years, and have been producing digital art since for nearly fifteen years. Although an amateur I've had numerous images published including in the Sunday Times Magazine. I have a degree in the technical side of photography and am an Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society. My professional work involves producing images for other people, my still photography is where I try to be creative for myself. The digital images involve so much work beyond the initial shoot (creating the backgrounds etc) I can't do commissioned work or tfp/cd.
 
Comments:

I'm principally interested in creating images inspired by mythology, Victorian pre-raphaelite and neoclassical art, fantasy illustration, gothic and early epic cinema. The images often involve combining people with specially made costumes, props, sets (usually miniatures) and and the occasional computer generated bit.
I am looking to work with people who can act out a role to fit into a previsualised image or improvise on a theme. As I don't use other peoples stock photographs, producing all the elements of an image can take a lot of time and as this is something I often have very little of so the number of final images produced can be quite small and appear a long time after a shoot.
Quite a few of my models are friends and acquaintances, or their friends. Here’s some of the people I’ve worked with in recent years:

I only work with models over 18 years old and have little or no time to do portfolio development work. I am, however, very keen to hear from people who "get" what I do and would like to be involved and models are always welcome to use finished images for their portfolio.

Had a brilliant shoot with Paul, he is such a lovely gentleman and a creative individual with lots of ideas. He knows exactly what he wants with each shot and is very good at giving direction.

He kindly picked me up at the train station and looked after me at his studio offering drinks during breaks. His studio is very well equipped with lots of costumes, props and lighting etc with a separate space to get dressed and do hair and makeup. It's really warm as well which is an absolute bonus!

His communication was amazing, especially on the day whilst I was travelling as I had to travel far to reach him.

I would highly recommended him to anyone and would love to work with him again someday! x

I had my first shoot with Paul on my London tour!.. I travelled to him and little later than planned and we was more than relaxed and ok with that!. He collected me from the station and met me with a smile! He was very friendly and chatty! A very interesting man and photographer! I was well looked after at his home studio!.. tea and lots of biscuits!... His studio is great very well equiped, a great space!... He had a fantastic collection of costumes and props for his images! His images are amazing and take a lot of post production, but they are more than worth the wait... completely stunning and unique!. I loved the shoot as it was something completely different for me!.. I would certainly recommend Paul to any model both new or experienced! He is a gentleman, amazing photographer and genuine person. I am looking forward to working with Paul again! Thanks again! Elle X
