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. :)
Simon was a complete pleasure to work with, very lovely person, gave me great direction and made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot.
I highly recommend working with Simon, he creates beautiful images of women and I look forward to our next shoot :)
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!
Shot with Simon last week he is truely fantastic :) even with my very painful mouth abscess lol!! Not nice, came last minute too:( Communication throughout was brilliant!!
Everything went fab apart from the weather :( so we had to get into a studio pretty last minute but it worked amazingly well...
To me Simon is professional, easy going and most of all great fun to work with, he is really a nice guy :)
I can't wait to see the results!!
We tried a variety of different styles using various props and accessories.
Hopefully work with Simon again very soon!!
Highly recommended :)
Worked again with Simon on one of my Scotland tours. He was friendly and considerate throughout, with unique ideas we'd planned before and a great location, he captured some quite dramatic, mythical images very different to anything we've done before, and it was great for me to work with a story and inspiration in mind. He may not be the loudest, most 'obviously' confident photographer but he always puts a lot of effort into planning interesting locations and themes, and is a real genuine, nice person to work with... I'd still happily recommend him. Thanks Simon :-)
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.
I had a great location shoot with Simon this week in Scotland. Very professional and easy to work with. Great locations and although the weather wasn't on our side he made the shoot enjoyable. Highly recommend working with him!!!
I had a very enjoyable shoot with Simon today, and although the weather was against us for half the shoot, we shot at some fantastic/dramatic locations! Great communication before the shoot, professional behaviour throughout, and an all round gent. Thanks for a great shoot :) J x
My second shoot with Simon was a triumph of good planning (on his part) and good fun. We went on a coastal walk, and I felt safe at all times, while shooting a wide variety of lovely stuff. Thanks Simon, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you :)
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!

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!
I had a fantastic shoot with Simon last month. He is a brilliant photographer with beautiful concepts and the end results were amazing. He was great to talk to during the shoot and I can't wait for the chance to shoot with him again. Highly recommended to any model.
Had a gr8 outdoor art nude shoot with Simon today, He is a talented photographer who works well with model to create beautiful images and finds the beauty in both the landscape and models. I would highly recommend him to all :) x
I worked with simon for the first time this week on both beautiful edinburgh location and studio. Simon is considerate and charming and great fun to work with. He brings some beautiful props and bags of ideas that enhanced our shoot. I will be most certainly working with simon again!
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.

Some feedback received on portfolio: "It was the natural surroundings of your pics that I saw, even the models in them looked more at ease than other photographs I had seen and more naturally posed. They were very inspiring." "Something different, in a good way." "You seem like a person with a passion for photography, and I love passion and I can see it in the quality of your photos." "Just wanted to congratulate you on the wonderful images you took of Holly - beautiful." "I really love the images you did with the beautiful red-haired girl.. they are stunning." "You have some gorgeous natural shots on your profile." Thanks for the feedback which is much appreciated.
