had my first shoot with John the other day at my home, all i can say is lovely photographer and knew exactly what kind of shots he was looking for, failed on my part towards the end of the shoot as i was supplying lighting and an infrared trigger which had decided to die on me, my own fault for not double checking on the batteries, but aside from that the shoot was great, John was polite and happy to talk through the shoot, very much recommended to anyone :)

Had a Two fantastic shoots with John and loved every minute of them! He is a really nice guy and we had a great laugh and got on really well. He really know's what he's doing and has some really good idea's and gives good direction as well as letting me do my own thing. Would thoroughly recommend him to any other model, he makes you feel so comfortable, pushes no levels and let's you be yourself and also excellent pre comms. Looking forward to seeing the pics as we got some fantastic ones from both shoots and cant wait to work with John again. Thankyou Vicky xxx

An absolute pleasure shooting with John today, he knows how to bring out the best in his models, not just in terms of lighting, experience and the technical side, but also his cheerful and enthusiastic personality puts the model at ease so they want to, and achieve their best work. Thanks again John :)

I am a professional photographer, qualified as a Licentiate of the Master Photographers' Association. To gain that qualification I had to submit 20 photographs to be judged by 5 of Britain's best photographers. 12 of the 20 were photographs of Purestorm members!

Because lots of people helped me when I was starting out, I am happy to help newcomers whenever I can fit it in with business commitments. I will do TFCD for new models who have potential - the right "look" - in which case I undertake to get a CD to you in under 4 weeks (usually only 1 or 2 weeks).

You can see my work on here in my own profile and in some models' profiles. But please see also my website (see link above). If you want to see even more, please mail me for links to AVs of my work.

Much of my business involves travelling and photographing people in their own environment. This means working in clients' and models' homes, on location indoors (hotels, nightclubs, etc) or on location outdoors (city centre, countryside, beach). However, I do use portable studio equipment so if you wish you can get the best of both worlds - studio quality photographs without the need to pack your clothes and travel to me!!

If you have any concerns about your personal safety please contact any of the models I've worked with for a reference. If you still feel the need to have a chaperone I regard that as a sensible precaution. In truth, boyfriends don't make the best chaperones, because I find models want to keep looking to them for approval instead of looking where I direct them. Bring a girl friend, your sister or even your mother!


Please note, I do not arrange shoots on the basis of e-mails and text messages alone - a conversation is vital. Yes, I know it sounds obvious, but it obviously isn't! PLEASE ONLY E-MAIL OR TEXT ONCE WE HAVE TALKED ON THE PHONE

I look forward to shooting with you soon!

My afternoon with Natalie was more like fun than work. She's a natural in front of the camera but takes direction very well. First class communication before, during and after the shoot. John
Beautiful, stunning eyes, bubbly, loads of fun, very comfortable in front of the camera, works hard. You name it, Shonagh has the lot! John
Sarah is a delightful model to work with. When we did her first ever shoot she quickly got into the swing and we made some stunning images together.
Rebecca is a beautiful girl and an absolute delight to work with. One minute she's laughing, the next she's melting the lens with smouldering sensuality. Here's to our next shoot! John
Kat is beautiful, communicates well and works hard. The ingredients of a great shoot!
Great girl. Enjoyed working with her. It was necessarily only a very short outdoor shoot and I'm looking forward to more.
