Had a great time at my shoot with Lenz. He made me feel very comfortable, especially as it was the first time in years that I've had a shoot. Got some fab pics, and the bacon sarnies are legendary! Great guy, made me laugh lots!

Well what a shoot, great fun from start to finish.

Stephen really is a true gent. Communication from the first message to the shoot day was second to none.

When i arrived he was so welcoming and made sure i was well looked after. Mug of builders tea and a bacon sandwich and great conversation. Smile

Through out the shoot i felt completely relaxed and made to feel very welcome. We managed to get some great shots and different ideas.

On this shoot i had the pleasure of working with Grace Ellen, she was so much fun as a partner in crime, but Stephen coped with us both Smile

Look forward to coming to visit you again soon for another shoot.

Had a fantastic shoot with Stephen yesterday, shooting and creating images on the beautiful sunny beach and around the stunning area of Arundel in West Sussex. On arrival he was very welcoming with lots of interesting stories to tell from his past life, which kept me intrigued all day long. He was respectful, friendly, polite and helpful with advice. The images that we created together were truly amazing. Communication beforehand was fantastic! Thank you once again and for a great day out. Highly recommend.

Stephen is a very friendly man and he made me feel at home at his house with great conversation and treated me very well with a lot of respect. His bacon sandwiches are the best you'll have! The outcome of the shoot was even better than what I wanted as the photographs are professional and his use of natural lighting makes his photography unique, classy and brings out the best in the model. I will continue to work with him for many future shoots and I strongly recommend him to other models.

'Lenz' was a very pleasant man indeed and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute working with and talking to him!
Thinking I would probably only work with him as a one-off because of the distance, after meeting him and seeing some of the images from our shoot I will definitely be working with him again.
A very interesting, down to earth fellow with some amazing stories and experiences from his life, already! Highly recommend him to every model wanting great shots and a good day out with someone new.
Thank you so much!! :)

Taken me a while to get this comment up due to having a break from the modelling, but i must write a comment about my experience with this man.

The communication before the shoot was great, we shared ideas and Stephen was very friendly and helpful.

On arrival he was a polite, gentle guy and very welcoming. We spent an entire day shooting until it got late. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Stephen, he is a very interesting person and kept me chatting all day long. The pictures we created were magical and i still use them for my dance portfolio to this day.

SO Stephen, i am so sorry this comment is late, but thank you once again for the wonderful photoshoot. 100% recommend!!

Steve (Lenz) is a lovely man and still continues to be one of my favourite photographers to work with.

Had another great shoot with Lenz the other day!! He cooked us a lovely breakfast and dinner as we worked over a several hour period.. The images were incredible and he really brought out my dramatic side! I had really been looking forward to working with Lenz again and luckily the shoot lived up to my expectation.. We were both really happy with the images and think we created something really rare!! Not to mention we both had great fun as Lenz is such a lovely guy. Overall I am really pleased with how the shoot went!!

I shot with Stephen (Lenz) yesterday, I have been in the industry for several years and in the past have mainly worked up in London so was delighted to find out that Stephen was so local!

He is an amazing photographer and a delight to work with. He immediately put me at ease with his sense of humor and easy-going attitude.

The pics look great, can't wait to see the finish result!! I would highly recommend working with Stepehn (Lenz) to all models out there looking to expand their portfolio

We got an outstanding numbers of images in the space of time and all looked amazing. This was my first shoot i had done in a while but got straight back into it due to Stephen's wonderful personality and how proffesional he is. Not to meantion the wonderful storys and how funny he is.
Its a delight to work with you and would recommend you a million times over.
Thank you so much and the bacon sandwich was a good start to a good morning!
So excited to see the images and look forward to seing you soon xx

It was my second shoot with Stephen yesterday, id been looking forward to it and had another great day! Even though it was only my second shoot it felt like walking in to my own home i felt so comfortable. Stephen works with natural light and even though we didnt get a great deal of light the images still made me speechless. Looking forward to more stories and a bacon sandwich.

Thank you

Well what can i say.....I had an amazing day!
From the bacon sandwich to the amazing photos.
Stephen made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, we did loads of fantastic shots on location and at his apartment.

A couple of weeks back, I had my FOURTH shoot with Stephen! It was great as usual, and so were the photos produced as the final result. I would highly recommend Stephen.

Recommendation from 1st shoot, June 2012:
Working with Stephen yesterday was amazing! He is very professional, skilful and friendly. He is also very accommodating, treats his models exceptionally well, and even took a break from shooting to drive down to the shops and buy me some food when I got hungry!

The photos, of course, also turned out to be brilliant, and we managed to successfully achieve a wide variety of different styles, with the help of Stephen's great ideas, organisation and wardrobe that he supplied.

I would love to work with Stephen again. Highly recommended photographer.

2ND SHOOT
Had a second shoot with Stephen at the end of last week and once again we got some great shots. It was my second lingerie shoot but I couldn't have felt anymore relaxed in what I was doing. Would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a reliable photographer and a boost to their confidence.

1ST SHOOT
Amazing shoot with Stephen this afternoon...

Stephen made me feel at home straight away and we were quick to get some simple yet creative ideas to get the best shots. His originality in using only natural light definitely paid off and I was shocked with the results of some very amazing images as a result! Very pleased with his help and support throughout the shoot meaning I stayed confident from start to finish. Would definitely work with Stephen again.

As this was my first photo shoot in a studio I didn't quite know what to expect but Stephen put me at ease straight away. We had a little chat over a cuppa before we got started which really helped both of us gather what we each wanted to gain from the shoot.

Stephen guided me throughout poses and expressions to get the best possible result. He was also very open to my own ideas. Throughout the shoot there was not a moment that was awkward or uncomfortable, Stephen is very fun to work with and does the best Tommy Cooper impressions!

The photos that I saw on the camera were amazing. I can't wait to see the edited photos and hope to arrange another shoot soon.

It was a great pleasure to work with Lenz yesterday (04 Nov) . Despite the bad weather and the lack of light we got some great shoots and we had a lot of fun.

He makes his models feeling like home right away and he treats them very well and with respect, and most of all he makes them laugh. You can't get bored with a man like him and you will always have something to talk about with Lenz.

He helped me a lot during the shoots and I learned so many things from him. I will definitely recommend him and I can't wait for the next shoot with him.

Do you know the feeling that on your way to photo-shoot you already know it will go well?
Because of my travels it was easier for me to sleep over and spend whole weekend in Steve’s place. He is a great host and very professional as usual.
This was my 2nd time I worked with Steve and what an experience! I enjoyed it million percent. Steven is very talented photographer. He showed me few ideas and then we took it from there. Both of us “worked until we dropped” and seeing the images I think we have amazing result! I believe his work is very original and the way he uses natural light just worked miracles.
I would recommend Steve to anyone from starting model who wants to build up unique portfolio to a professional who wants to experiment and is ready to push their boundaries.
But enough of me talking, why don’t you have a look through his profile and his work with variety of models and sets, you will see what I mean. :-)

I contacted Stephen (Lenz) after seeing his profile on Purestorm to see if he would be interested in working together on a shoot. We spoke on the phone a few times and straight away knew this would be a fun shoot. His communication was brilliant leading up to the shoot and he even picked me up from the train station and dropped me back after the shoot. He works from either his home or on location and only works with natural light only. His home has the most amazing natural light ever! He is very creative, so easy to work with and constantly had me in stitches laughing all day. A total gentleman who opens car doors, made me a yummy bacon sandwich (and a danish) and does make a good cuppa as he promised haha. Love the images seen so far, even had some emailed through to me within 24 hours. He has such a lovely personality, telling me all about his days in the music industry, was totally blown away by him playing the guitar and singing me a song he wrote. A really enjoyable shoot with such a talented guy. Comes very highly recommended and I will be arranging another shoot with Stephen soon. Thanks again for such a fun day!

I really enjoyed my photoshoot with Lenz. He was there to greet me at the beginning and made me feel very welcome. Lenz helped me plan my shots, some for my modelling and some for my music career. The shoot lasted four hours and as it was a really sunny day we did some location shots. I loved being the centre of attention. I learned a lot from Lenz. I have done several photoshoots before but this was the most productive and the most fun. Lenz bought me a sandwich and cake to keep me going! We also did some indoors shots and I was able to try out different looks and outfits. I had a great time and would love to work with Lenz again in the near future. Thanks Jaycie x

2nd shoot Tuesday 27th April

This time we focused on my photos for my music career and Lenz had lots of brilliant ideas that he had from his experience in the music industry and I got to model in some of hes old rocker Jackets.
It was a lovely sunny day and we got to go to the beach and Lenz bought me fish and chips. We got a lot of great shots again and it was another great, productive day. Thanks. Jaycie x

As this was my first shoot through Purestorm and my first shoot with a semi-professional photographer, I was a little nervous and didn't really know what to expect. I needn't have worried, Lenz is a fantastic guy who immediately put me at ease with a bacon sarnie and a cuppa!
The shoot itself was great fun, he began by showing me photos of previous shoots so I knew what to expect and listened to what I wanted to gain from the day. Lenz gave me some great direction throughout the day and was happy for me to have my own input as well as my confidence grew.
I'm really pleased with the initial photos I've seen and can't wait to see the rest!
I would highly recommend Lenz to new and experienced models and hope to work with him again later this year.

Stephen is truely an amazing photographer, his talent astounds me. For someone to have such limited equipment but still produce better work than people with expensive and fancy studios is to know you are truely lucky to be able to work with such an incrediable photographer.
I am new to modelling and this shoot with Stephen is only my second, but I felt so comfortable with him it felt like we had been working together for years. He has so much to teach and can seem to make anything work! In only three hours we accomplished a ridiculous amount and made me comfortable pushing my boundaries which was very exciting. I really believe I left that shoot having become a model and not just a wannabe. From all the knowledge that Stephen gave me and the amazing pictures we have produced I only look forward to working with him again in the future and covering every aspect of modelling.

Best Wishes

I'm so excited about the results of the shoot, cannot wait to see them!

A successful day all round, not just a shoot but a fun day out with a new friend and some great photos to show for it, highly recommended. He not only had me laughing constantly all day long with his fabulous sense of humour but gave me clear, precise and constant directions on every shoot

I will definately be visiting him again soon if he'll have me!! Even if we met for a beer and a chat!!!

Had a wonderful day yesterday with Stephen, he is one of the most interesting and inspirational people I have met. I was greeted with a hot cup of tea and bacon sandwich and felt instantly at ease. I felt he knew exactly what I wanted from my shots and we had a fun and relaxed time experimenting with them. Aswell as a talented photographer he is also a talented singer, songwriter and author. You should meet him just to hear about his fascinating life, I just hope he passes all my details to his film star friends ;)

I had about 12 images already edited by the time I got home and this left me itching for more. A successful day all round, not just a shoot but a fun day out with a new friend and some great photos to show for it, highly recommended and I will definately be visiting him again soon if he'll have me!!

P.S he also has plenty of jaffa cakes on hand!!

* I woke up on the day of the shoot and looked out of my window and it was miserable, cloudy and wet! Un-deterred I gathered my wardrobe and beloved suit-case and set off in my car to my first photo shoot with ‘Lenz’. I was convinced twenty minutes later when I was lost, that today might actualy be a bit of a shit day. I eventually arrive (on-time) and was greeted with a warm smile and a Bacon Butty. A bacon butty and a steaming froffy coffee!
I felt comfortable and safe on arrive and was shown all around the apartment just to make sure there was no creepy crawlies lying under the bed yano?. Then we checked out each others previous work to get an idea of what was achievable, then we decided on wardrobe. We chose the outfits to create various 'looks' we both wanted to achieve to up-date our portfolios. Next, hair and make-up then straight off to our first location, a small church yard. We created simple shots from natural light and natural poses. I took a small case with me with hair-spray, moisturiser, lip Vaseline, a large towel and a lint brush. I felt more confident being prepared.
The sun continued to shine so we headed for the beach front at Leigh-On-Sea. It was a really beautiful setting, and this was where we captured most of our favourites. There are props here and history to re-capture; you couldn't get enough inspiration from one location!
I can honestly say that Stephen can capture the images he does because he doesn’t try to hard; he’s very patient and believes anything’s possible. If your searching to work with someone who’s genuine, safe, intelligent, and a musical genius ( look him up, do your research, make his day! ) then your sorted. Read his book ‘The Essential Guide to a Career in the Music/Entertainment Industry to get a further insight in to this truly talented person.

It was an absolute pleasure, treasure.

Lenz was by far the most professional and humorous photographer I've worked with. From the moment I met Lenz he made me feel at ease and relaxed, which helped my shoot immensley. He not only had me laughing constantly all day long with his fabulous sense of humour but gave me clear, precise and constant directions on every shoot. I got some fantastic shots out of my day and now have a complete portfolio for my career which has helped me get 2 amazing jobs in under a week just from these pictures alone. I would recommend lenz to everyone and anyone who wants great pictures with natural light. He gave me 100% of his dedictaion to ensure that I got what i wanted out of the day, and i definatly did. Thankyou again Lenz xxx

I was a little bit nervous about my shoot, as I haven't got much experience in modelling yet, but as soon as I met Lenz all my nerves disappeared! He was very chatty, and re-assuring and I felt comfortable at all times. The encouragement he gave me made me a lot more confident behind the camera, and pushed me to try different looks. The photos came out brilliant, and I cant wait to see the rest. I had a fantastic day with lots of laughs, and I would definitely like to work with Lenz again. he is professional, and a talented photographer, I cant praise his work enough. Thanks for a great day, and the sandwich too! x

Lenz is a complete gentleman, charming, intelligent and highly creative. His pre-shoot communication was excellent and I felt I knew him well even before I met him for our shoot. Lenz was totally focused on creating beautiful images, giving direction and responding to poses, and expertly using natural light in various absolutely stunning locations. He created a relaxed and fun atmosphere that made the day fly by.

An excellent photographer, a wonderful man, beautiful locations and gorgeous images; a very memorable shoot!

I would be honoured to work with Lenz again and can't recommend him highly enough.

Had a shoot with Lenz a couple of days ago. Having not had much modelling experience I was a bit nervous, however after talking to Lenz on the phone beforehand, and meeting him on the day my nerves soon disapperared. Lenz gave brilliant direction, had great ideas and locations, and made me laugh and feel relaxed from the very start.

The shoot was a joint one with Paul(Pozzy)and Lenz had a number of great locations in Leigh-On-Sea that he took us to. Each location was different from the last and Lenz was an expert at making use of the natural light available to create some amazing shots.

Lenz really has a very unique style that brings out the best features of all his models. I was so impressed that we've already discussed some ideas for a future shoot. I would definately recommend Lenz to other models as you'll be blown away not only by the final results but also by the professional, relaxed and fun atmosphere to work in!

Well this was an accidental meeting, the main subject was supposed to be BubbleBecca, however after Lenz saw my profile from a recommendation from BubbleBecca he decided to shoot us both on the same day, upon chatting to Lenz on the phone a few days before the shoot I knew this would be a professional photographer I would be happy to work with, on the day of the meeting that did not change, Lenz was very down to earth with a great sense of fun and charisma, he did not need to put me at ease nor did I feel uncomfortable at anytime around him, he was a true gent in every sense of the word while keeping his cheeky chappy demeanor about him, the shoot was really good Located at Leigh On-Sea, weather was fantastic and the surroundings were very nice

BubbleBecca and I made a great team and Lenz had some great ideas and locations, I was very, very impressed with some of the raw images he produced, he made BubbleBecca look angelic, amazing and he had a clever use of the natural light, BubbleBecca was really easy to work with, If I get the chance again to work with both these people I would not hesitate in shooting with them in the future.

Thank you for a great day out Lenz

Regards Paul (Best wishes for future shoots)
