Had a very enjoyable shoot with Mike. He is a genuinely lovely man, who was always keen to make sure I was warm enough and comfortable. He even made me lunch and dropped me off at the bus stop. On top of that, he provided some amazing props to work with and had a huge amount of creative ideas.

Ahh wow Mike I had an incredible afternoon with you! Full of laughs and loads of fun as well as getting some top class images. You have done a fantastic job! This shoot will certainly not be the last, I'm already looking forward to our next shoot to work on more ideas and dance moves and get though loads of wonderfull outfits Mike owns as well as more of my Dance costumes. It is a blessing to meet a photographer who shares my passion for dance and capture my dance moves to perfection. Highly reccommended! See you again soon Mike and thankyou again for a wonderfull afternoon :)

Had a fantastic shoot with Mike on the 25th Nov. Got train and bus to Lampeter and Mike very kindly picked me up from the bus stop to take me to his studio.

Mike made me feel very welcome, comfortable and I had a fantastic day. He gave me very good direction and we got a fantastic variety of photographs. I have to say I'm definitely over the moon!

Would recommend Mike to any model wanting to get some great shots for their folio. Go for it!

I would definately recommend shooting with Mike to anyone ...the most amazing warm welcome, consideration, sense of humour, and personal qualities that are hard to find in a person, and make the shoot so comfortable and at ease ...with every moment being fun. Pair those qualites with Mikes artistic creativity, skills and expertise, and ability to produce the most beautiful work and you can only begin to imagine a shoot with Mike. :D

I had my first shoot with Mike this week and I had a lovely day! Mike and his wife Chris are lovely and welcoming, made me feel very comfortable right away. The location of the studio at his home in Wales is beautiful and I was just so happy to be there! Mikes passion and photography skills are brilliant and can clearly be seen through his work. I even got to see some of the images by the time I got home that very day! Can't wait to work with you again Mike!

UPDATE: My second shoot (July 09) with Mike was a wonderful experience! I stayed for a very comfortable 2 days and we got so much done, such a range of styles, even thought it poured it down with rain constantly! Already have another shoot arranged, and I can't wait! =]

: I had another shoot last week with Mike. One of the best weeks of my life! I had a brilliant time, his wife is lovely and very kind. I slept in their comfortable caravan so had loads of space and privacy. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in - I couldn't wake

Mike is a 5 star star photographer. You will feel absolutely confident and the shoot is just fun from beginning to end. And as for the results - unbelievable!

Highly recommended to all models! If Mike offers you a shoot DO NOT hesitate really don't want to miss out on this!
