Rob is an absolute gentleman, and a wonderful, creative, visual artist I had the pleasure of working with today - he is inspiring, polite, courteous, and has the true spirit and passion of a photographer. He is one of the best I have worked with, and I very much look forward to working with him on more projects in the future. His imagination and ideas for work are original, wonderful, and producing more fantastic work with him is my highlight of 2014.

I really enjoyed my shoot with Rob last weekend. This was the first time i had worked with him, he was very clear with his directions and was open to all my ideas that i had. He was really quick with getting the photos over to me and edited them. I will work with him again soon, and look forward that what other ideas we can come up with between us. I would highly recommend him, to anyone. Thank you again Rob for a really good shoot :)

Rob is a wonderful photographer and made my first experience of shooting with a photographer that I wasn't already familiar with very very enjoyable. We met up to go over ideas in a location local to me, provided tea and lunch which I did not expect and made me feel very comfortable before driving me to the location and then making the other people who may be in the shot very comfortable as well. Rob was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to and get along with. Rob also made the extra effort to meet and talk to my partner who was apprehensive about me working with a previously total stranger and that really meant a lot both to my partner and to myself. Rob is a very friendly, professional photographer who is easy to get along and collaborate with. He has excellent creative vision and I would happily work with him again. :)

First I met Rob one week before the shoot over the cup of coffee when we discuss what we are going to do and just talked on different topics. We had whole day of shooting on different locations, talked and walked a lot. I was well-looked after. Moreover, it was very enjoyable, at the end of the day I was not even tired! Rob has nice personality, interesting topics to discuss, he is gallant, sociable and professional. And we are already discussing the next shoot together.

Recently had a shoot with Rob and had a brilliant time! Communication was perfect before the shoot as well as on the day. The shoot took place in two locations, both very suited to the shots we wished to gain. Rob is very easy to work with and extremely professional. On the day the shoot was a collaboration of ideas which made the day go smoothly. He listens to all of your ideas and is very respectful. Many Thanks!

I worked with DragonGraffix last week and it was an absolute pleasure. Rob is a very kind and interesting man and he also takes good photos :) We did a location shoot; Rob sourced three locations which were ideal for the style we were going for. Communication prior to and during the shoot was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob as a great photographer and am very much looking forward to working with him again soon. Thankyou :D

I had the opportunity of working with Rob in August. We had a location photo shoot while I also worked with another model CarolAdams on the same day we took many images in very different locations while at my stay in Portsmouth and he gave me a history lesson into the local area and made very well sure that I was looked after in while in his company. I really enjoyed working with him and would love to work with Rob again saying this I would recommend Rob to all models.

I had a lovely day out in the sunshine with Rob yesterday. He was brilliant and made me feel relaxed as soon as I got there. He looked after me well, making sure I was fed and watered and he treated me to a lovely pub lunch! He is very interesting and we had lots of good conversation. He also gave me a posing book which is extremely helpful and I will use it on other shoots. I will definitely work with Rob again and totally recommend him to other models!

Rob is not only a truly professional photographer but he is also a super person to work with. His friendly approach put me totally at ease and his creative ideas ensured that the pictures from our shoot would not only be superb images but also have the ability to 'tell a story' as well. Thank you for such an enjoyable shoot.

The day flew by. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable and kept me fed and watered. He was welcoming to my ideas. I hope to work with him again!

He made me feel very realaxed, With the initial views of the pictures taken i was very happy and so glad Rob gave me his personal time at such short notice. Highly recommend :)

Had a shoot today with Rob. He is a true professional and we talked for a while about concepts and ideas and then did a shoot in Chichester. I was very much at ease and found that Rob was great to work with. I very much look forward to working with him again and I have to say a big thanks for the book that illustrates different types of poses. I shall study it and learn from it. Without doubt one of the photographers everyone should work at some stage of their time on Purestorm.

As you may perceive from just a few of the photographs on my portfolio, I am interested in the 'rawness' of my subjects, and trying to bring out their true character. To me, it does not matter what a model looks like, I just want to try to tell 'their story' through the photographs I take.

Much of my photography involves working with inexperienced subjects from the performing arts, and with models new to the modelling industry who want to develop their portfolios. My model’s safety, well being, and comfort are of paramount importance to me. I am very patient and respectful with all my models, and especially with inexperienced models who may be extremely nervous at the time of the photoshoot. I believe it is important to mentor the inexperienced models I work with as to potential problems that they may face in the modelling industry. The guidance I have given in the past has been gratefully received by more inexperienced models. I hold an enhanced DBS (CRB) check certificate.

I value any input from my models and welcome any ideas that they may have. This mutual co-operation invariably leads to better photographs. I regularly meet with my models before a photoshoot to discuss and share ideas. This has an added benefit in that the model is more relaxed when it comes to the photoshoot.

I do offer TFP/TFCD type work if it is of interest. Any photographs that I take for my models will be fully post processed as both high resolution images for printing and as low resolution images for the web. I often create a website for the models I work with so that they may display their images.

If there are any questions you may wish me to answer, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to possibly working with you in the future.

Kind Regards

Rob


Experience
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile, it is appreciated!

I have enjoyed running my own photography business for many years which has included: scientific, sport, commercial, documentary, weddings, portraiture, and press photography work. A great deal of my commercial photography work these days has been in the areas of portraiture, in particular: performing arts including theatre, performance, music, stage and CosPlay photography; developing portfolios of inexperienced models; and website and advertising work. Recent assignments have been to photograph a number of live stage musicals, photography for the portfolio of 2 professional opera singers, a CD cover for a blues singer/guitarist, publicity photographs for a country and western singer, and website photographs for a blues band.

I have a portable studio for working in confined spaces as well as access to larger studios and have a particular interest in location photography work. I also teach photography, graphics and web design up to ‘A’ Level as well as mentor a number of Photography Degree students.
