It was a true pleasure working with Simon recently and I'm delighted to have been able to help him capture some of his stunning gracefully styled ideas during my recent visit to beautiful Scotland. Simon's knowledge of the magical local locations was inspirational and we generated a prolific flow in no time at all. Simon was very happy to welcome my own suggestions and we worked in great harmony bouncing ideas back and forth! A great creative mind with such a kind and caring nature, I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Simon very highly, even though the weather was not the best his enthusiasm and ambition shone through and we worked through some wonderful variety from start to finish. Thanks again Simon. :) Dani-Elle'

I had my first shoot with Simon yesterday morning. Was feeling a little intimidated by the frost on the ground when I was on the train but the shoot went really well as the sun was out & there was minimal breeze. The cold aside, we had a great shoot & I thoroughly enjoyed it, with great locations & beautiful wildlife to admire as well! I'd happily shoot with Simon again and most definitely recommend him. :) Thank you!

Had my 2nd shoot on location with Simon recently, and it was a really enjoyable shoot. Communication beforehand, during an after the shoot was excellent. Simon has a great imagination and has a natural flair for capturing beautiful an natural images. He is a complete gentleman and great to work with. I would love to work with Simon again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending him to other models.

Simon booked me for a day of outdoor location shooting, with a theme of 'goddess' imagery. We went to some fantastic locations, one of which had a lot of history and interesting pagan decorations left by recent visitors - lovely to be a part of. Although it felt cold, I think the images we got looked beautiful and I can recommend Simon whole-heartedly in communication, organisation and genuine 'niceness' - I certainly hope to work with Simon again and definitely look forward to the next time!

I worked with Simon today whilst on my Scotland tour in leuchars. He was very talkative throughout the shoot, making sure I was comfortable throughout the day. He knows how to have a laugh and he made the time just fly by. Despite the Baltic temperatures I had a very enjoyable shoot and the photos looked awesome on the back of the camera. I had a great time working with his ideas :). I would absolutely work with him again and would recommend him to anyone.

Simon is a great photographer with good pre-shoot comms and is also a good location scout! The area we shot in was lovely and Simon was very considerate of my wellbeing both during and after the shoot. He's a star and I would definitely recommend him to other models! Anita De Bauch

Had a lovely shoot this afternoon with Simon out at New Aberdour beach. As he travelled to me for the shoot, I had to find the locations and he didnt mind having to climb up a mudy slippery slope, getting wet hiking through a river or creeping about an old ruined church lol :) Professional, friendly and has a clear idea of what he's after, it was a pleasure to shoot with him, and I hope it will be the first of many! Definitley highly recommended :) Thanx again Simon!

Simon was a joy to work with. We explored some beautiful locations in Dunbar and in each he gave me a clear account of the images he was looking to produce. He was incredibly respectful throughout and even brought hot drinks in case I grew to cold. He comes highly recommended.

Had a wonderful shoot with Simon in St Andrews this week, we went to some amazing locations, some of the best locations i have been to this year) and shot some really lovely art nude and some edgier, more dramatic stuff too. He is a lovely person, very interesting to spend time with, extremely knowledgeable about almost everything natural and insect based and very laid back and relaxed. All in all, a great day! i hope we get to work together again soon, and i can't wait to see the images!!! Thanks, Simon! Katy :-)
