And one more fabulous session working with this absolutely awesome creative gent! :D I love working with Mark: he will always challenge himself with fantastic creative ideas/bring cool suggestions to the table and puts immense levels of care and attention into getting the lighting right on each and every set. I don't think there has been a shoot yet where there hasn't been prolific levels of yield in the imagery produced: we have a team-flow now where we can visualise where the shot is going and work together to make it happen... Mark has, from day one, always made gallons of effort to compose his images beautifully with the angles and technicalities - I have so much admiration for how his work has come along to the point where he can put his hand to any style and capture some artistically stunning work. :)

Always superb professionalism...

Always barrels of laughs/lovely company...

Always an overflow of innovative concepts...

Always cracking outcomes with the shoots...

1000% recommended always! :)

Thanks again Mark, awesome as ever!

Since my last reference (dated March of last year) I have since worked with the lovely Mark on another two occasions: In November 2016 on a duo session with Katie Green which was a crisp cool day but such a blast and Mark saw that the both of us were kept warm and well looked after in-between sets. :) He got some stunning images of us and I cannot stress that enough... It's tricky enough shooting with one model on location in challenging sunlight but Mark really nailed the wonderful duo ideas we covered.

The most recent shoot was fairly impromptu, again at Joel Hicks photographic but with some new backgrounds to try out I think it's safe to say that Mark and I bounced off each other at a beautifully creative pace seizing shots both inside and out... we have definitely got to the stage where we work as a fantastic team to get a cracking collection of images out of each set and the smashing thing about Mark is that he will listen to models ideas too. :) He brings some fantastic concepts to the table and then as a pair of creatives working together you can suggest different things/try out different things and there has never been an unproductive moment yet! It's always great fun seeing what we come up with: Mark has genuinely good photographic skills with balancing the light to get the nicest possible effect and he will persevere artistically to make a shot work.

I have always had brilliant communications from Mark - he is literally such a breeze to make arrangements with and so easy going, courteous and kind hearted. I cannot think of a single fellow model that would not have a really positive photoshoot experience with Mark and cannot give him enough thanks and credit for all the brilliant work we've done both last year and into this one! :D I always look forward to working together again...

Highly recommended!!

Thanks again Mark!

I had a truly lovely time shooting with Mark yesterday! Our shoot was arranged at short notice but he was very helpful, clear about what he wanted to shoot, trustworthy and friendly. He was a very considerate person, who kept just the right pace throughout our shoot, and was in a calm but upbeat mood, all things which helped make the shoot productive (hopefully at least!) and relaxed.
I would recommend to any serious model to shoot with Mark and would definitely do so again myself. Thank you Mark!

Late cancellation, cancelled within 18 hours of the shoot
I had a shoot booked with Mark in May, unfortunatally i had to cancel due to me twisting my ankle!

He messaged me saying he wanted half of the money for the studio, which i was fine with. he wanted me to send CASH in the post?
I then suggested a bank transfer as its unsafe putting cash in the post,(dodgy if you ask me!)to which he never replied back to.

Instead of giving me time to reply he posted a very unprofessional message on my profile If you look at my feedback I have NEVER had a problem with a photographer before.
