I have over the last 18 months been building my portfolio with a mixture of experienced and beginner models. I had mainly been working in the studio until the last few months as circumstances and the weather have dictated so. I have now started to do location work again and weather permitting will continue this through the summer.

I am now a resident photographer at the Met Studios in Llanelli which is owned by full-time, professional photographer Josh Lowes. We both have our own styles and strengths and are looking to exchange ideas as well as working and collaborating together.

For portfolio shoots I charge a fee which is on a quote basis as there are different levels of services in regards to such things as number of prints received, length of shoot (to include outfit changes) and whether a model wishes for a MUA to be present.

I do and will shoot TFCD but you must have a good figure (6-12) and skin. Looks are subjective so for me to say you must be good looking is not really something I say.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about either my work or the work of the studio.

I am currently looking to do some more fashion work as well as glamour and lingerie. I am looking to take my glamour work down the road of 50s movie star glamour. This does not have to be lingerie based but can be fashion or swimwear.

I have mainly shot female models but would really be interested in shooting male models. This will include a lot of strong lighting and will be mainly fashion and casual based although I would also like to do some sport based portraits as well.

Please feel free to contact me at or via Purestorm

*************Portfolio Shoots********************

For portfolios my rates are varied depending on locations required, length of shoot, travel, MUA?, output format etc so get in contact and we can discuss your requirements and I will give you a quote for your portfolio.

I had a shoot with Mike on Monday 11th of May.
Before hand we had lots of contact and discussed a theme and what clothes I should bring.
When I arrived to the studio he made an effort to get to know me and make me feel comfortable, we discussed the order of outfits and then started shooting.
Throughout the shoot he was funny, friendly and enthusiastic, then after the shoot we discussed other shoot possibilities and had a general chat.

I would reccomend anyone to shoot with Mike.
Thank you
