I am particularly interested in what I call boudoir photography. Many of my shoots are lingerie/topless/nude/erotic images taken indoors, to display models' intimate moments of relaxation and self confidence. However, I have done many shoots involving fashion, street fashion, fitness, swimwear, parts, gothic and hair. I don't particularly target adult work but some models have suggested it when it naturally flows as an extension of an erotic or nude shoot.
With one very experienced model I did a series of shoots which we both thoroughly enjoyed and ended up with a series of playful, classy, intimate and confident images. The series built up over a 9 month period so that by the end we were able to bring our detailed ideas to life.
With another model we invented a series of stories to tell and present a set that was in effect a collection of moments in a time-line that we had devised.
Examples of the work from both these models are included in the images on this profile
I am very experienced having been photographing now for over 35 years. I have done a very great number of shoots both outdoors and indoors with a variety of models both novices and highly experienced. Outdoor shoots have been both using natural light and flash, indoor shoots the same range of lighting set ups. I prefer to use natural light wherever possible as I believe the quality of this is far more subtle.
I normally work alone with models so as to establish a meaningful connection with them but if models prefer to attend with a chaperone then that's fine. The most important thing is that you feel completely comfortable which itself enhances the final images.
