WOW What can I say! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Dirkus, I had an amazing shoot with him! He was patient, respectful and made me feel so at ease and he's very creative! He constantly made sure I was comfortable and happy with what I was shooting and gave just the right amount of direction,Dirkus also had an amazing sense of humour and had me cracking up between shots. I felt I bonded with him almost instantaneously and can't wait to work with him again. Highly recommended to all Looking forward to working with you again soon hopefully

I love working with Derek, and can't recommend him highly enough. He's a lovely, warm, friendly person who gives great direction but also lets you improvise, which I really like. He's great to chat to, and has such a super location and such fun ideas that I wish I could shoot with him more often. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone :)

My shoot with Derek was really good, I loved the different set-ups in the studio and the fact you could shoot outdoors in privacy, I found Derek to be very patient and considerate, All in all a lovely man who I hope to shoot with again. xxx

I was in my element when I arrived at Derek's farm today. Idyllic studio setting surrounded by stunning fields of horses, it was a perfect. The day went too fast, mainly because Derek is such fun and genuinely a pleasure to work with. We really did have a fabulous day enjoying a range of modelling styles. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Derek again, highly recommended, and thanks for a great day! :)

Derek is just awesome!!! Worked with him yesterday at his farm studio which was brilliant, and kept me nice and warm. Derek has got a great sense of humour which made time fly by, he's also really easy to chat with.
Derek put up with me arriving nearly an hour early and made me feel so comfortable and relaxed especially as I was a bit nervous of the whole shoot being in film :)
Overall a lovely bloke and a brilliant shoot!!
I will be back :)
