I had a shoot with Chris over a year ago and enjoyed every moment of it.
He ticked all the boxes: professional, friendly, great fun to be around, made sure I was happy and comfortable (especially given the icky weather!), and he strives to get the best images. I absolutely enjoyed my shoot my Chris and I'm sure his portfolio potentially speaks louder than anything postive I can say. :)
How could I describe my day with Chris.. ?
I enjoyed every single minutes of this photo shooting,
Our two creative and artistic minds met,
A perfect alchemy between a model and its photographer.
An explosion of ideas and understanding.
And the most important we laughed a lot.
The communication was perfect, Chris makes you feel comfortable, tells you everything he does, gives you advise and shares his experience and his knowledge with you.
The location was amazing, today was my first outdoor shooting and I loved it.
I felt more than confident shooting with him and I would recommend Chris to everyone,
He is someone you can trust and he will look after you.
The Photos looks great and I'm proud of all of them.
I had the most fantastic shoot with Chris today. A true professional, extremely creative and my goodness does he have access to some fabulous locations?!
On a personal level, I found working with Chris extremely refreshing. I was able to input ideas and try out things I've wanted too for a long time. He presented his own ideas also and as well as providing some truly mesmerising locations, bought along props and a brilliant attitude.
I'm so looking forward to seeing the results of our shoot and couldn't recommend working with him highly enough.
Thank you for a wonderful day Chris :)
I had an absolutely amazing shoot with Chris yesterday. We went to several locations with several outfit changes and managed to capture some absolutely stunning shots. He is courteous and polite at all times and is always conscious of creative inclusion and being aware of what you both are aiming for from the shoot. He showed me the images as we shot so I could see and critique myself and he was able to give me pointers and suggestions to improve the overall look. An absolute pleasure to work with. x
Well, what can I tell you about Chris that hasn't already been said?! This man is a true creative and a seasoned professional. Pre shoot communication was fantastic. I arrived know exactly what Chris wanted to achieve and knowing exactly what I needed to bring with me. The location we used was amazing - if not a little chilly! Chris is fantastic at letting you do your own thing whilst adding little tweaks for you to really improve the pose. We battled the light and Chris new exactly how to capture and use it to its best. I thoroughly enjoyed our shoot and hope to work with Chris again.
Had a fantastic day shooting on location with Chris friendly& professional & was made to feel comfortable at all times .... provided
many breaks snacks & drinks , shot in a wonderful location ,the time flew by
and we got some great stuff done -absolute pleasure and hope to work together in
the near future - Highly recommended & thanks Nina-c !!
I had my second shoot in a few weeks with Chris last week. It's always fascinating to see how the quality of images increases as the model and photographer get to know and trust each other more, and I'm sure these pics will be even better than the first shoot. He had a heavy cold but did not cancel (though considerately he did warn me) and never once complained (no 'man flu' moaning!). The creative momentum was such that we shot for eight hours with only one short break. The pics on his Purestorm don't really do him justice; do shoot with him if you get a chance (though read his communications and conditions properly - don't expect payment AND pictures too, this man is a professional - if you want fab images to keep, make that clear when negotiating). Once again thank you Chris and I hope we can work together again. X

Professional, hard-working, friendly, clear in his requests, very respectful... and a FANTASTIC photographer. Chris and I had a great shoot yesterday, working brilliantly together in creating what are I hope are fantastic images. I'm an experienced model, but I imagine he would be very good with beginners too, as he very keen to ensure my comfort and happiness. There wasn't too much 'fluffy getting-to-know-you' time though - if as a model you enjoy non-nonsense creative hard work then he's the photographer for you. Thanks Chris. X
Had a fantastic shoot with Chris this week. His pre shoot comms were second to none! Literally not a stone was left unturned in his explanations of what he wanted from the shoot and what he expected of me. We planned a full days shoot and we filled every minute of it - Chris is absolutely full of ideas and creativity and the day really flowed. He is a lovely guy, very chatty and easy to get along with and he gives great direction - very clear in his communications. He is an absolute perfectionist with getting an image just right down to the composition and lighting. I really felt like we nailed a fair few fabulous images. I really enjoyed my shoot with Chris and would definitely recommend him.
Had a great shoot with Chris yesterday! He was very easy to work with, thorough and with a close eye for detail. Im certain the shots were great and I'm looking forward to collaborating again in the future.
He is a very kind and chatty person with great passion and concentration to the photo shoot.A definitely professional photographer and it was a pleasure working with him. :)
I'm looking forward to shooting with you again!
Chris was very professional from the start of our communication. He was sending detailed emails with the instructions and description about our photo shoots. Everything Chris was described we have realised in our shoots. I can say that Chris was very professional; he had lots of equipment and different properties for the shoots.
Thank you very much for the professional approach and the new experience I’ve got, looking forward to work with you again.
An amazing photographer with amazing attention to detail. I was shown a number of very high quality images that I can't wait to get hold of. Not only is Chris extremely skilled & creative he is also very professional & respectful. I look forward to future business and shoots with Chris very much so.
Finally was able to shoot with Chris this month after the dreaded weather caused us to postpone but i'm so so pleased we managed it! The day was thoroughly enjoyable and Chris is awesome.

Had a fantastic shoot with Chris this week, he is such a nice and friendly guy that made me feel comfortable through out the shoot. He is technically an excellent photographer with good ideas. Was also able to input my own ideas into the shoot. Had a very enjoyable day and already have the next shoot booked. Highly Recommended.
I worked with Chris for the second time recently, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
As well as being a technically great photographer full of ideas and enthusiasm, he is very easy to work with, conscious at all times of his model's safety and comfort, and provides a nice packed lunch!
His pre-shoot comminication is very helpful, and it was lovely to receive an email thanking me for an enjoyable shoot the follwing day.
All in all, a total pleasure to work with!

He was patient with me when I needed to change and get into a comfortable position, he was/is funny, lovable, chatty and very eager and passionate about photography. I just can't explain how good he made me feel and how happy I am with him and the shots he took. Get in touch with him, you won't regret it :)
