Mike is a great guy to work with. He is friendly and throws all his energy into creating the right look. He sourced some excellent costume pieces and didn't even raise an eyebrow when I covered him in mud! A thoroughly lovely bloke and would definitely work with him again.

Worked with Mike and Lindsay Sian Snuggs (MUA) on the Charity Calendar shoot organised by Duane.
Mike is a firstly a great guy and an absolute professional to work with- he has enormous enthusiasm, great humour and works hard to get great images...I am looking forward to working with him again soon and I'm extremely pleased (understatement) with the pictures we obtained.

Thanks Mike.

Mike is a brilliant model, quite new to all of this but showed GREAT potential! We done a couple shoot together, it was very nerve racking for the both of us because it was new to us! He was very supporting and made me feel relaxed from the very start! He has got an amazing look about him, any model or photographer should get a shoot with him whilst you can, he is definitely going to do well in the future! Thanks mike, you were brilliant to work with, hope to work with you again soon! I was a very lucky model to be able to work with Mike one on one! :D x

Apart from one studio shoot, this was the first shoot Mike had undertaken - but his confidence & attitude towards the whole shoot was fantastic.
Within a short time the shoot began to flow, and although working under less than ideal outside conditions the results were impressive. Although Mike is able to take direction well - he is full of constructive ideas, is very confident without being arrogant and easy to work with.
He has a distinctive look that extends from Head & Shoulders to full body physique, and has the confidence to cover a very wide shoot range.
This shoot also included his brother [Bruce], who is just as impressive - they work well together or solo - any photographer working with either or both will I feel be impressed.
I hope to continue the shoot options with them both - as my portfolio can only gain vastly by doing so..
