I had the pleasure of working with Leo yesterday and glad I had this opportunity. A true gent who is professional and respectful with a keen eye for detail. Leo is extremely friendly, with a great sense of humour and makes you feel relaxed and happy throughout the shoot. His communication and organization beforehand was spot on despite it being a last minute shoot. His hospitality was superb and provided lunch and plenty of cake/biscuits for me to feast on! Highly recommended without a doubt. Thank you :)

Had another wonderful shoot with my good friend Leo out in the countryside near home this time. We did get turfed out of one particular field by some cows lol which was quite ironic as one of Leos books tells a similar tale. We do have such fun and also time to calm and relax away from a bustling world of chaos. I thoroughly enjoy my shoots with Leo we set the world to rights on a regular basis and get some great shots too. Cant wait till next time. Any models would do well to work with Leo he is such a gentle kind hearted man with so much talent. Till next time Leo, Emma x

This week I was blessed with the delightful opportunity of working with this stupendously kind and professional gentleman who welcomed me with considerable hospitality to his wonderful home studio. From the first instant we fell into a joyfully elaborate discussion of shoot-related creativity over tea/biscuits, it was instantly evident that Leo was an amazing character and a most productive session was certainly to follow. Leo approached every style covered with great attentive ministration and an inspirational vision where the lighting was concerned. He tendered to the composition with such a skilful eye; whenever a pose/shape was struck that had potential for beautiful development, Leo grasped the opportunity in a split second - he unquestionably bears the sharpest eye for a spectacular moment to be captured. Whether it was the controlled studio set or the vivid areas of his home using sunlight, Leo was articulate, enduring and elaborate plus generously welcoming my own input leading to a superb bounce of ideas throughout the day. Prior to the shoot, communications were immaculate - detailed and informative even with less time to plan than usual. When it came to the shoot itself, what can I say! Perfect, and I cannot stress how much I would look forward to setting up future shoots together with so much more potential to explore with the lovely Leo. Models, listen up - I recommend this photographer higher than you can begin to imagine! Thanks Again Leo :) Keira

I have just completed my shoot with Leo and i had the best time. Leo is an absolute gentleman. I felt completely at ease in his company, he is a superb host (i received lunch which included cake!) and his positive, complimentary feedback throughout the shoot is a model's dream! Leo is very talented with a great eye for detail and gorgeous lighting. He was happy to let me pose and do my own thing but equally he has great ideas of his own and tips on how to improve shots/poses. Leo has a great appreciation for natural beauty and showing women at their best and his enthusiasm for producing lovely work is infectious. I can't recommend him enough and we have already planned our second shoot.

I have had quite a few shoots with Leo over the past year, the latest was a shoot at my home last Saturday, Usually we work at his home studio but this time he travelled to Durham. I cannot speak highly enough of Leo, he is so great to work with, communication is always perfect and shoots are so easy to arrange. I see Leo as a friend now and love working with him, he always has so many ideas for every shoot, he is polite, respectful and I am always totally comfortable around him. Shoots are always fab, Leo is chatty and we have fun but at the same time always very productive meaning that we get lots of great images. Thank you for another great shoot and see you soon :) :) Amy xx __________________________________________________ Added by AmyBeloved on 10 October 2012, shoot arranged for October 2012 Had a totally brilliant shoot with Leo last week, he is a lovely, kind and genuine man who is great to work with, a total gentleman. Leo had lots of ideas and I really enjoyed shooting in his studio and lots of other settings and environments too. I am so so pleased with the images I have seen so far from our shoot, I love them :) Leo is a talented photographer. Hope to work together lots in the future. Thank you, Amy x

Wow what can I say about Leo - everything is great about him and his images. This is the second time I have shot with Leo and hopefully it wont be the last. I would shoot with him everyday if I could. He makes the shoots fun and relaxed and his the perfect host. His images are pretty good too! I could go on all day about how excellent his images are. He has also taught me alot about poses and positioning, all of which I will remember for future shoots. I think I have found a gem in Leo and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to any model, new or experienced ones. You wont regret shooting with Leo.

Despite me having a somewhat blonde moment on my journey to Yorkshire and arriving a little late, Leo greeted me with the most amazing hospitality and I was made to feel like a princess. Leo is a fantastic photographer to work with. Whilst he has ideas of the images he wishes to capture he is very open to imput and suggestions and this really helped us to bond and create a wonderful collaboration. The images he has sent me have been out of this world, creating such wonderful mood and character. He has bought out the best in my YCB which is no mean feat and my YST, well my name is well and truly evident :-). So looking forward to working with Leo again, and would I recommend him!!!! you would be a fool to say no to this gentlman .

Last year I published a book entitled Why Nude. This year I want to focus additionally on Dance and produce Why Dance,

A number of performers and models have either successfully developed or successfully boosted their careers through using my work. Lookalikes from all over the country have returned to say how impressed their agents are with my pictures and how much work the have got through putting them on the websites. I have effected introductions to agencies for a couple of models and one model exclusively used my work to gain interviews with four agencies – one in Milan wished her to move there to work for them.

I no longer need models to offer me tfp to build my portfolio. Normally I charge professional rates but if it can be fitted in with our schedules, I am very keen to offer tfp/cd to keen and dedicated models particularly beginners who will appreciate my work. I can offer a great deal of support to new models both young and more mature in terms of confidence building, advice and tips and varied and stylish photography.

In addition to my portfolio you can see more of my work on my main website www.barleyfields.co.uk and Classical nude, glamour, lingerie, fashion and swimwear can be accessed through www.barleyfields.co.uk/art-site

I do not do Gothic or fetish work. I can only work with under 18s if accompanied by an adult female chaperone

My new warm comfortable and purpose built studio is just south of Leeds very close and very convenient to the M62/M1.

Though I aim at professionality in every way, I ensure that everyone who visits my studio thoroughly enjoys themselves, has a lot of fun and leaves feeling much better for having come.
