Experience:
Welcome to Portfolios4U. I was for over 30 years in the sales side graphic arts trade which in involved a little photography, I had to take a early retirement to look after my very sick wife and a few years ago I was taken ill and spent some time in hospital, this left me disabled so in order not to become a cabbage I started doing portfolio , I will no longer take on p.f.t. its not worth the hassle and will only work with models who want paid work. Although my main intrast is fancy dress , I would rather work with models who will model up to nude, for years I used film but recently I changed over to digital, the main reason for this change was cost and this meant I could afford to increase my fancy dress costumes which at the present moment is 230 costumes . I am based in Abergele in lovely North Wales which is easy to get to by road and by train. If you come by train I would pick you up & take you back to the station after the shoot. If you have a distance to travail I will assist with any reasonable travelling expenses.

I have full studio lighting backdrops and props which include a number of fancy dress costumes plus the small items that add to the image.

. Been only a few hundred yards from the beach it makes it ideal for swimwear/ holiday wear (weather permitting).Well I don't say I am the best photographer on this site , I will say I know how to treat a model, its not unknown if a model has some distance to travel by train I make up a goody box for the model to consume going back on the train . I expect the model to put maximum effort into a shoot so in return I always try and make the model feel happy and at ease, I have a saying “a happy model is a good model” I think you will agree this makes good sense. Look forward to hearing from you.
WILL MEMBERS NOT USE ANY OF MY IMAGES ON THE FORUM I FIND IT VERY OFFENSIVE
 
Comments:
I have a large number of fancy dress costumes that models can use


I MUST POINT OUT THAT I EXPECT ANY MODEL THAT WORKS WITH ME NOT TO SPEND OVER 3 HOURS GETTING READY THEN REFUSE TO MODEL ANY OF MY COSTUMES BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE THEM .I HAD ONE MODEL WHO DID JUST THAT ON ME AND I HAD EVEN SENT HER AN EMAIL WITH PHOTOS OF ALL MY COSTUMES.IT WAS ONLY WHEN SHE CAME TO DO THE SHOOT SHE SAID THEY WHERE GLAMOUR AND DOESN’T DO GLAMOUR YET SHE LISTS GLAMOUR ON HER PROFILE . IF YOU ARE THAT TYPE OF MODEL I DON'T WANT TO WORK WITH YOU.

Had a fantastic shoot with Gordon yesterday and loved every minute of it! He is a really nice guy and we had a great laugh. He has some really good idea's and gives good direction as well as letting me do my own thing.

Would thoroughly recommend him to any other model, he makes you feel so comfortable, also excellent pre comms. Looking forward to seeing the pics as it was my first fancy dress shoot and cant wait to work with Gordon again especially with the goody bag he gave me for my journey home.

Thankyou Vicky xxx

What a fab shoot I had yesterday. It was our second shoot together and was just as good as the last one, if not better. It is always such a pleasure to shoot with Gordon. He makes the day fun and relaxed and the new outfits he had for the shoot were amazing. I am looking forward to our next one already. True gentleman too.

I worked with Gordon today 29/09/10.
Lovely photographer he is, he made me feel very welcome and comfortable on my first time working with him. He is a very professional photographer and takes care of his models, I would definately consider working with him again, as we have already decided to plan our next shoot and I would definately recommend him to anyone else. Once again thanks Gordon & Jane :) xx

I had a shoot with Gordon yesterday.
He is an absolute pleasure to work with and the amount of props and costumes he has is unreal. More than shops.
He is very hospitable, had lunch, he even picked me up at the station and dropped me back off. Great conversation and very informative.
I met his wife Jane who is also lovely.
I cant wait for our next shoot in September.
Thanks for a lovely day Gordon, even got some sightseeing whilst there. Highly recommended xxx
