It was a true pleasure working with Simon recently and I'm delighted to have been able to help him capture some of his stunning gracefully styled ideas during my recent visit to beautiful Scotland. Simon's knowledge of the magical local locations was inspirational and we generated a prolific flow in no time at all. Simon was very happy to welcome my own suggestions and we worked in great harmony bouncing ideas back and forth!

A great creative mind with such a kind and caring nature, I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Simon very highly, even though the weather was not the best his enthusiasm and ambition shone through and we worked through some wonderful variety from start to finish.

Thanks again Simon. :)

I had my first shoot with Simon yesterday morning. Was feeling a little intimidated by the frost on the ground when I was on the train but the shoot went really well as the sun was out & there was minimal breeze. The cold aside, we had a great shoot & I thoroughly enjoyed it, with great locations & beautiful wildlife to admire as well! I'd happily shoot with Simon again and most definitely recommend him. :) Thank you!

Had my 2nd shoot on location with Simon recently, and it was a really enjoyable shoot. Communication beforehand, during an after the shoot was excellent. Simon has a great imagination and has a natural flair for capturing beautiful an natural images. He is a complete gentleman and great to work with. I would love to work with Simon again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending him to other models.

Simon booked me for a day of outdoor location shooting, with a theme of 'goddess' imagery. We went to some fantastic locations, one of which had a lot of history and interesting pagan decorations left by recent visitors - lovely to be a part of. Although it felt cold, I think the images we got looked beautiful and I can recommend Simon whole-heartedly in communication, organisation and genuine 'niceness' - I certainly hope to work with Simon again and definitely look forward to the next time!

Shot with Simon last week he is truely fantastic :) even with my very painful mouth abscess lol!! Not nice, came last minute too:( Communication throughout was brilliant!!
Everything went fab apart from the weather :( so we had to get into a studio pretty last minute but it worked amazingly well...
To me Simon is professional, easy going and most of all great fun to work with, he is really a nice guy :)
I can't wait to see the results!!
We tried a variety of different styles using various props and accessories.
Hopefully work with Simon again very soon!!

Worked again with Simon on one of my Scotland tours. He was friendly and considerate throughout, with unique ideas we'd planned before and a great location, he captured some quite dramatic, mythical images very different to anything we've done before, and it was great for me to work with a story and inspiration in mind. He may not be the loudest, most 'obviously' confident photographer but he always puts a lot of effort into planning interesting locations and themes, and is a real genuine, nice person to work with... I'd still happily recommend him. Thanks Simon :-)

I worked with Simon today whilst on my Scotland tour in leuchars. He was very talkative throughout the shoot, making sure I was comfortable throughout the day. He knows how to have a laugh and he made the time just fly by. Despite the Baltic temperatures I had a very enjoyable shoot and the photos looked awesome on the back of the camera. I had a great time working with his ideas :). I would absolutely work with him again and would recommend him to anyone.

Had a lovely shoot this afternoon with Simon out at New Aberdour beach. As he travelled to me for the shoot, I had to find the locations and he didnt mind having to climb up a mudy slippery slope, getting wet hiking through a river or creeping about an old ruined church lol :)
Professional, friendly and has a clear idea of what he's after, it was a pleasure to shoot with him, and I hope it will be the first of many! Definitley highly recommended :) Thanx again Simon!

Had a wonderful shoot with Simon in St Andrews this week, we went to some amazing locations, some of the best locations i have been to this year) and shot some really lovely art nude and some edgier, more dramatic stuff too.
He is a lovely person, very interesting to spend time with, extremely knowledgeable about almost everything natural and insect based and very laid back and relaxed.
All in all, a great day! i hope we get to work together again soon, and i can't wait to see the images!!!
Thanks, Simon!

Simon and I worked together at the weekend on location. Simon was from the beginning, well prepared, provided me with information for the shoot, ideas and was excellent at communicating. The shoot itself was fantastic. I had a wonderful day going from location to location that Simon had routed out for us. He is a highly intelligent gentleman, a genuine, kind, thoughtful and witty guy! An absolute pleasure to be around. He kept me amused with his knowledge of animals, otter poo, bugs and plenty more! I would highly recommend any model to work with Simon, and I am definitely looking forward to working with him again in the future! What a star! x

Simon is a complete and utter star, he knew what he wanted and let me experiment freely with it, I made a few outfits for the shoot and I am glad that I did as the pictures that I saw looked fabulous. We were both entertained throughout the shoot, including during the glasgow rain storms and the accidental daffodil massacre.
Simon has the talent to photograph all styles, from the sensual art nude to full on crazy gothic girls! Highly reccomended.

Feb 10 Simon joined me as part of my studio day at Contrast. Although he was fairly new to studios I feel we managed to capture some lovely images together. Simon has had his confidence knocked in the past but I feel with a little more encouragement he will be at the top of his game. Lovely man to work with and have a giggle with. Until next time Simon, thanks again x

July 09 Had a nude shoot with Simon today, loved it! Great comms prior to shoot with great direction on the day, as well as letting me do my own thing. Pleasure to work with, would def work with him again. Even gave me a nature lesson....I now know the difference between a frog and a toad and a mouse and a vole. Cheers Simon x
