Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I have being actively involved for some years within the amateur photography scene. My work has been exhibited in exhibitions at local, regional and national levels. I am passionate about my monochrome work especially portraits and the art fields. The human figure and its interpretation inspired my imagination following a visit to Chatsworth with its Canova sculptures plus the works of both Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. The Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood along with Bob Carlos Clarke, Edward Weston and other great photographers have inspired some of my images.
As all I'm concerned about is the image as it will appear on the exhibition wall a chaperone is not be needed will but should a model require a chaperone to put their mind at rest there is not be an issue concerning this but should you have any concerns please e-mail some of the (male and female) models on the site I have worked with previously.

While some of my photographer colleagues are interested in “open leg” type of image I am not so please don't bother contacting me if this is what you're after as its just not for me.

I am mainly working at the moment on a number of fine art/art nude projects. I am currently putting together a couple of panels for the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and Royal photographic Society award panels so if you think you can work with me please drop me a line

I worked with Steve for the first time last weekend and really enjoyed it.
We immediately bonded over our mutual love of Helmut Newton and used this as one of our focal points for the shoot.
He was professional, polite, friendly and interested in my ideas and thoughts regarding the shoot.
He was happy to allow me to pose and move naturally but also offered his own direction.
Steve also picked me up and dropped me off at the station which was very much appreciated.
Easy to get along with, enthusiastic and a genuine passion for photography. I would happily work with Steve again and recommend him to other models out there.

Had a great studio shoot with Steve tonight. He even picked me up and took me to the studio. He is a wonderful photographer who takes time and care to get the shot spot on. He brought examples of work which we drew inspiration from and also brought clothing as well even though a brought a case load :) I would love to work with Steve again and recommend him to all models out there.
