Worked with Derek and his lovely wife Lisa on an all day shoot for a lingerie/clubwear client. I was made to feel welcome and well looked after through out the whole day. Lisa helped with any wardrobe assistance so help was always on hand if needed. The hours flew and before we knew it all the outfits had been shot so we moved on to some other work including art nude and some portraiture.
I look forward to working with Derek and Lisa again.
Highly professional and recommended without a doubt :)

First time ever working with Derek, was a fantastic location shoot and the images he created were stunning. A wonderfully professional photographer with a lovely family - was a pleasure to shoot with. Also very patient with my badly managed time keeping! Will look forward to working with him again :)

Had a second shoot with Derek today, this time with me being 7 months pregnant and at his home with the help of his lovely wife Lisa. Derek and Lisa were very accommodating and kind, making sure I had plenty to eat and drink and that I wasn't uncomfortable or achey. Really love the images that I've seen so far and hope to shoot with Derek again in the future once I've regained my post-pregnancy shape. Thank you very much :)


August 2010 - Had an excellent location shoot with Derek today despite being interrupted by many a passer-by/child/dog/nut-throwing-squirrel :)
The shoot was fun, informal and I felt at ease from the onset. Derek is a really nice guy and I'd recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to improve their portfolio. I love the images and am very much looking forward to seeing the finished result.

Thank you very much! x

Derek is really easy to work with and get on with. Communication was kept up before the shoot, he was punctual, got some great images, and sent me the images to see within a day - what more could you ask for?! Would be happy to work with again.

Just had a shoot with Derek. He's a nice guy and very concious of the model and making her feel at ease. We shot art nude in the woods and it turned out to be a sort of secret garden style shoot, which worked very well. He knows how to set up outdoor lighting to make really nice effects. I look forward to seeing some of the photos =]
