Working with Andy was great, we concentrated more on the beauty aspect for the shots, and Andy was brilliant. Both professional and lovely to work with. I look forward to the results, and hope to shoot again in the future. Scaire
I love Andy, he is the perfect photographer. He gives good direction, listens to my comments, never makes me feel like I am anything less than a perfect goddess!
He knows how to treat his models! And his photographs are amazing, see for yourself.
Jump at the chance to test with him! And don't be afraid to approach him because at first I was scared to contact him as I thought he was too good for me but he's very approachable!
Andy's ace, he came well prepared and full of ideas, travelled a long way and sorted everything so all I had to do was turn up. It was like hanging out with an old friend even though we'd just met. Shooting with Andy is loads of fun and certainly doesn't feel like work. I'd definitely love to shoot with him again and would recommend him to anyone who wants talent and creativity from their photographer!
I worked with Andy this time last week, had a great shoot very productive, comms before the shoot was great. Hes a very talented photographer the images & lighting perfect, good direction given. Already seen a couple of images! one word Amazing! Highly recommend to a newbie or experianced model. Thankyou :) x
2ns Shoot with Andy...
Long overdue and now I remember why! Andy and I had an absolute hoot, laughing at eachother mostly. But aside from that yet again a massive amount of fantastic images that from what I've seen so far I'm totally thrilled with! Andy is technically brilliant, open to ideas and certainly brings something unique to a shoot! Til next time... cause he's NOT bored of me yet!! Gx
Andy came to stay at my house in Sheffield. I was really flattered that he travelled all that way just to shoot me. I was very happy to have him stay and we got along great. He is a really funny and interesting guy. The shoot was very relaxed and I am very happy with the images photographically and I feel like he got some good stuff out of me. I would work with andy again and again and I am hoping to visit him in northampton :D
Wow, worked with Andy today and what a pleasure. hes a fantastic photographer with a great eye who produces stunning images, I cannot wait to see my images and to hopefully work with him again. Friendly, professional and gives great direction. If you get a chance to work with Andy do not pass it up.
I have worked with Andy twice now and he has really aided in the advancement of my photographic knowledge. He is reliable, puts everyone at ease and always brings a sense of fun along to his shoots. If your looking for a great photographer, book Andy NOW
Fantastic photographer, easy to get along with and fun to work with. Andy has some great ideas and knows how to get his visions across. I highly recommend booking him if you get the chance!

Depends on assignment
I'm Andy, an experienced photographer focusing on the beauty and fashion genres of model photography. I work out of my home studio mostly and shoot along side my other half, Harmony Summer - here on PP. I assist her and she assists me. We often employ an MUA and occasionally a hairstylist and work as a creative team.
I'm very much of the belief that less is more. This said, I am not the guy to come to if you're looking to receive dozens of images from a single shoot. I usually only edit the best image from each set, occasionally the top two if I love more then one from a set, which usually means you will receive 3-6 images on average.
The only time I pay models is when I'm being paid by a client. I don't pay for travel either; everyone who is a part of the creative team covers their own costs, be it make up/product, travel or studio rental. If you don't feel my images are good enough vs your cost of travel then don't contact me. I'm currently in a position where I can only take on a very limited number TF shoots as well but please don't be put off asking - worst I can say is no.
Lastly, no show = no second chances. Any questions, queries or general chatter - send me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
