United Kingdom, England, Devon
At present I am happy, in most cases, to offer TFP/TFCD and to work with both amateur and professional models, from fashion, lingerie, any of the above work types noted in my summary profile, to wedding and family photography. I do ask for a model release form to be signed at all shoots; this is to cover both you as the model and myself as the photographer.
My aim is professional but you will find that I have a laid back attitude and am very open to new ideas. I like to discuss any ideas you have that you would like to experiment with prior to a shoot, by email or phone.
Wherever possible, I prefer not to airbrush models and manipulate their images so as to preserve their quality, beauty and original styling.
As I also do work on a TFP/TFCD basis, I generally do not reimburse travel expenses for models, as my costs are also involved. Although this is not to say I would not be willing to travel further for shoots that would benefit both the model and my portfolio.
I will always respond to genuine queries/messages - although this can sometimes take up to 2-3 working days. Once correspondence has been established I prefer wherever possible to speak on the phone with the model prior to any shoot taking place, therefore will always ask for a contact number to be provided.
As a common courtesy I expect any model wishing to cancel a pre-arranged shoot, for whatever reason, to give as much notice as possible. Unfortunately, I will not rebook any model who fails to show without providing acceptable notice.
The safety of the model and photographer is very important. I am more than happy should any model wish to bring along a chaperone on the understanding that they remain neutral to the shoot. It would be appreciated if I could be informed prior to the shoot whether a chaperone will be present. Similarly, I work closely on many projects with my wife, Sonia, so reserve the right to have her on location or at the studio to assist.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to working with you!
Hi and welcome to my profile! My name’s David and I am based in Ivybridge just outside Plymouth. Although fairly new to Purestorm I have enjoyed a passion for photography for several years.
For the past 2-3 years I have been the in-house photographer for Wickedelic Lingerie, having my images used in their catalogues. From this I have progressed to developing my own photographic style predominately for location shoots although I now also have my own small studio in Ivybridge town centre. The studio is situated within the same building as my wifes lingerie company and therefore you are welcome to call in during week days when we are open at 22A Fore Street, Ivybridge.
