My first test shoot with Michael went amazingly well, he is a truly lovely guy and a pleasure to work with. He was also really professional and I feel we created some really stunning images. I can't wait to work with him again :)

I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful photographer on the 13th December 2013, Although very nervous upon arrival I was made to feel very comfortable after only a few minutes until the finish of our shoot.

I tried numerous styles of modelling. It was a wonderful experience and really hope to be photographed by this photographer again in the near future.

He is a great person, very patient and wonderful host and my photos are incredible. I highly recommend Michael to every model out there x

There was good communication before and during my shoot with Michael. He collected me from the bus stop which is just a minute away from his studio. He gave good direction when needed during shoot, and kept me moving. He also gave me good advice about modelling since I am fairly new to scene. Would recommend to anyone thinking of working with him. Thanks for good shoot Michael and I look forward to seeing all of end results :)

I was asked not to write a dissertation, so here we are:
I had a fabulous shoot with Michael on 16-17/12/2012 in his well-equipped home studio.
He’s a lovely person and a very passionate photographer; very professional, reliable and friendly.
He’s full of original, fun ideas and made me feel very at ease and relaxed throughout the shoot, which produced some stunning images.
He is brilliant at directing and letting you move from pose to pose and knows exactly what he is looking for in an image.
He really looked after me all the way through the shoot; kept me fed and watered and was kind enough to let me use his spare room for the night.
I would recommend Michael to all and certainly would work with him again :-) Thank you. Franka

Michael is an excellent photographer who captured some astounding images on the day. He made me feel perfectly at home from the moment I arrived. He even cooked me lunch. His home studio was the perfect environment for the shoot with a separate room to change in and get organised. he knew exactly what kind of images he wanted which made it a lot easier for me. I hope to work with him again in the near future!

It was an absolute pleasure to meet lumiere as well as work with him. He's a brilliant person and could happily say he's the best photographer I've worked with. Lumiere has produced beautiful work, and I have been stunned with the outcome off all my images.

Lumiere made me feel very comfortable infront of the camera, he's a very friendly and polite person with a brilliant personality. I would definately recommend any one work with lumiere.
