I am interested in all forms of tasteful Artistic and Fine Art Nude photography; of particular interest are location landscape and beach artistic nude and figure-nude studies.
Due to the UK's weather limitations I also shoot indoor/studio based Artistic Nude, figure-nude and stylish, very tasteful, Glamour Nude, and 'elegant' non-nude glamour.
I also enjoy traditional portrait work, with a specific interest in capturing images of attractive and intriguing faces.
Other photographic interests include:- sporting events such as Dressage and Eventing, and Horse trials, Powerboat Racing and general landscapes.
As a horse owner myself I specialise in Horse Portraits, and understand how to deal with skitty stallions :) .
My real interest is highlighting a model’s unique qualities; the ones that turn an attractive model into a really beautiful woman.
Sure I take my photography seriously at a technical level; but it is also my hobby and as such,I always make sure the shoot is a pleasant event for all concerned. I think I must have been super lucky as all the girls have been super to work with, looked stunning, and were really nice people. Anyway a big thank you to them all.
Any models interested in seeing more variety please pm me and I can mail you further examples of Portrait, Artistic Nude, Fine Art Nude and Glamour images.
Getting more and more into complex Flash and lighting effect photography.
Any models looking for images for their portfolio please drop me a pm; as any TFCD or partial paid shoots are appreciated.
Thanks for looking
Thanks for looking at my Portfolio
I am a Professional level and experienced Pro-Amateur, with Canon's highest resolution professional level Camera, and Canon's highest level professional L series Portrait Lenses and 5 Radio Triggered, Remote Controlled Professional Bowens GM500Pro Studio (portable) Lights/Flash. And 3 additional Target Flash heads. In addition I have 4 600 watt Bowens Continuous Lights
I have Pro level backdrop stands, matte backdrops in Lemon, Black, Fuschia, and Satin Creamy-ivory. I use 2 x 1.4 meter diameter large Octagon Soft-Boxes, and 500mm diameter Beauty Dishes - all are fitted with white double diffussers to achieve silky smooth, but highly detailed skin tones. For confined spaces I also have 2x 1.4 meter Umbrellas.
I am all about ultra-high resolution images, underpinned by sophisticated lighting.
I can edit professionally, and have specialist "skin improvement" software in addition to Photoshop. This improves flawed skin, or in your case ;) , minor imperfections and wrinkles without destroying the intense detail that enables us to generate detailed but totally natural skin.
I have been so impressed with this software and the results when combined with the new highest resolution camera; that I honestly want to reshoot every image I ever took.
In summary my commitment to any model, who shoots with me is, "I will NOT turn you into one of these ridiculous cyber-cartoon, barbie doll like creatures, that seem so prevalent on so many photography sites.
Likewise I am not a great fan of using the quick and dirty technique of totally over-exposing an image to hide skin imperfections (Errr that is why they do it - less time needed to edit it) . Agreed, it does hide skin blemishes, but it also washes out all the detail! I sincerely believe this detail contains a models "special magic". So any trick that eradicates the "magic" that captivates an audience, and makes men go weak at the knees, is bluntly a crap idea.
There is a better way!
I am always interested in meeting models, who want to strive for perfection. It takes time and patience to achieve perfection; so if your looking for a quick wham bam thank you point and spray shoot - sorry but I am not the photographer for you.
I love Location shoots and have invested in Canon's latest radio-triggered Speedlights. These are highly Portable, so ideal to achieve perfectly backlit location images.
I also have 4 Bowens 600 watts (total 2,400 watts) Streamlites, that deliver perfect, soft, daylight-balanced continuous lighting for for short cameo videos. Although the camera produces stunning video quality, I am learning that craft, but am good enough to produce short Portfolio standard videos, which are good enough for say Music Video castings.
