i had my first shoot with Barry today..he is a very easy going person that the time of the shoot run away.He can give directions very well and always ask you if u approve his ideas when become very creative
i highly recommend him and hope to work again with this great photographer
Barry was very friendly and chatty from the start, which made me feel at ease. He was respectful of what images I did and didn't want to do - which I can't fault and helped make the day go smoothly. We had time to do a few location shots and many indoor shots, which was a great way to build my portfolio. I like the very 'soft' feeling to his photographs. Good work Barry :)
Worked with Barry today, at my home.
I would definitely recommend Barry to any of the Models, he is very polite, very professional & very easy to get along with. I really look forward to working with Barry again, and I hope it will be soon :)
Once again Barry, thank you for today & it was a pleasure working with you. Mich xx

Having tried a few different image styles I am starting to lean more towards "Hopeful Hopeless Romantic" than anything else. When a model is standing in front of me I am trying to capture something of them in the pictures: a smile, a glint in the eye, a gesture with the hand, a single pose that shows something of them.
As I don't have easy access to a studio that I can afford so far I have worked from home, which is private and clean and a couple of the rooms have areas large enough to spread out in. I also have an established garden that is private and not overlooked that on a nice day offers a natural green backdrop.
At the moment I am looking to expand and gain experience so that I can learn to bring out the best in the model I am shooting. With each shoot I gain a little confidence in asking the model to pose.
I will always respect the models for what they are doing and I hope this comes across in my dealings.
I look forward to working with others.
Experience I am a relatively new hobby photographer looking to gain as much experience as I can.
I have done a couple of shoots now and both have been an amazing experience. The models were brilliant, so calm and casual about everything that the time flew by. In the process they taught me a lot about light and posing and composition.
