Doug invited me for a shoot at his studio in Blackpool yesterday. It was a pleasure meeting him and working with him. I was really pleased Doug's ideas, and although it was a relatively short shoot I could see that the images he managed to achieve were great.
I wouldn't hesitate to work with Doug again and would definitely recommend him to any model.

I worked with Doug today; I must say what a pleasant afternoon I had, well worth the long drive. Doug has an extremely creative eye; his adventurous unique ideas definitely show in the pictures. I’m excited to see the images, he sent me one within a few hours of the shoot and it’s amazing. Doug’s studio is full of remarkable equipment, he provides you with plenty of drinks and refreshments and the studio has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Time flew by and it felt like I had been there for minutes not hours. I certainly recommend Doug to models; I feel he has given my portfolio a major boost. xxx

So, I shot with Doug at the one and only Flash Bang Wallop studio yesterday... it was AMAZING... I was facinated with all his props; he has tons of wigs, and interesting bits. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he can style you up to look fantastically quirky. Doug was really easy to work with, down to earth and very friendly. Hes brilliant at directing a model and knows exactly what he wants to create. He comes up with some refreshing ideas. I could not recommend him anymore. Highly professional and respectable. Thank for an amazing shoot. M O W - M O W

Memorable experience! Not only is Doug a nice laid back guy to work but he has a good humor and takes photos spending minimum fuss with lighting. We have had a tiring day of back to back dynamic shooting, he welcomes ideas and gives his own input. Good planning, efficient and what more could you ask for than a fun loving photographer with crazy innovative ideas? HIGHLY recommendable :)

I thought I'd already done this! My bad.
I worked with Doug at his studio in Blackpool a few weeks ago. He was very welcoming and friendly and was kind enough to pick me up the station. His studio is fantastically spacious with plenty of props and such, and he was happy to give a little direction but let me do my own thing too which was great!
From what I've seen of the images we shot he's done a brill job with those too, I'd definitely recommend him to models wanting a great varied portfolio!

I worked with Dougie on my first shoot of 2012 at his studio in sunny Blackpool. He patiently waited for me to arrive after a false start on my part, and welcomed me into the studio with a nice cup of tea and some Simply Red (one out of two ain't bad!)
His studio is well kitted out with plenty of space, props and backdrops, and I found Dougie to be great to work alongside. He is professional in attitude and skill, and listens to ideas as well as offering his own. We did a wacky, colourful shoot which was fun and very enjoyable. I would recommend Dougie to any model and hope to work with him again in the future.
