I had my first shoot with Paul last week and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience! Paul is a very talented photographer and we shot some great images. He had a very clear vision of what he wanted to achieve from the shoot and knew exactly how to do so. Pre shoot comms were excellent. Paul is a lovely guy, really easy to chat to and feel comfortable working with. One of the most fun shoots I've had for a long time! Will definitely be working with Paul again :)

Had a really easy, fun shoot with Paul today. Pre comms were great, we didn't have too many fixed ideas but got through several different looks and Paul had bought along some good props too. Look forward to working with again, would recommend :)

I had my first shoot with Paul on Sunday and I really enjoyed it cos he is very easy to communicate and work with. It took just a couple of messages to arrange our shoot and when I turned up everything was well prepared so we could start shooting straight away. I really enjoyed our conversation about Accounting (at least he didn't think I'm crazy, haha). Great shoot, amazing results, perfect communications and lots of fun. Looking forward to our next shoot!

I had my first shoot with Paul today and it was truly brilliant! Paul is a very organised, professional and genuine man. He is very passionate about photography and works very hard to get the results he wants. He knew exactly what he wanted from the shoot which made my job very easy. I am very much looking forward to arranging our next shoot and seeing the results of todays. It was lovely to meet you Paul; you are a true gentleman and a very talented photographer. Shannon :)

Up to nude
Some Experience
Will Accept:
Paid work or TFP/CD
Stock Photo
Parts Modeling
Living in Dorset there are plenty of great opportunities for location visits as well as studio work, I'd like to make the best of both and meet more models and photographers in the process.

I'm gaining more experience by working with a variety of models whether new, inexperienced or experienced and working on location as well as in the studio. I don't have a problem with chaperones, one model I worked with brought alone her Mum who helped hold the reflectors. If you are just starting out and looking to build your portfolio and also gain modelling experience we can do a TF shoot.

If you aren't sure of working with me because I have relatively few comments then please feel free to contact any of the models I've worked with previously. I try to make the shoot as relaxed, friendly and enjoyable as possible (my portfolio contains many images where the model is smiling!), that way I can (hopefully) make you look good and I can improve my photography.

Although I live in Christchurch I am now shooting mainly out of Speedlight Studios in Southampton. I prefer to show weekends as I work Monday-Friday but I can take time off given reasonable notice and to fit in with models schedules.

I'm a mature photographer with experience in workshop situations and have been using studios for about two years now hoping to get much more experience in the coming months, years!

Worked with Sammi_Jo on Saturday 13th June at IB Studios. She brought a big bag of clothes and accessories, lots of enthusiasm and I hope to work with her again in the future.
