This has to be our most productive photoshoot yet! I have lost count of the number of times James and I have shot but the most recent session I genuinely think we shone as a team that had developed into something so creatively productive!
It all started out on some old church ruins in North Yorkshire... James booked me and kind of realised I was this crazy, hyper excitable thing that is addicted to climbing everything but we seemed to gel pretty awesome! :D Then we had a number of shoots since, some on location and some in a studio - all of which have produced some diversely beautiful results but the most recent two shoots (at Joel Hicks Photographic in Leicestershire) I think we genuinely went for it and our styles fit like an epic jigsaw. Shooting is always very experimental, especially if you are working in natural light conditions which change all the time - because james started at that more challenging end of things his photographic discipline and creative eye was immense from the start. Then the more shoots we have done the more we have bounced off each other and I have to say, the last set we did was sensational! What I really love about working with James is that he has faith in me; in the grand scheme of things I'm a model getting hired and quite often I have the job of just keeping quiet and doing my pose repetoire according to the brief. But the thing about working with James is that he values my input so much and can see when I'm cooking up something interesting as an idea, we were in the studio left to our own devices and we nailed it! All by ourselves! I loved the images we did so much that many of them were just magic excatly how they came out of the camera. I just had to pose away making my shapes and doing my thing, James photographed away and we honestly ended up with so many amazing keepers.
But that was just one set! The images we shot out on the location as well have been equally WOW. Whether james arrives with an exciting prop for me to go wild with or whether we wing it and be spontaneous, it's ultimately the epic working realtionship that shines and we always get there. I am just so excited about our next couple of shoots, I know they will be a blast as there is no question at all that we escalate each time we shoot.
James has been such a sport every time we work together - although we focus like MI5 agents when we are making pictures, the epic banter is just comical. I see him as a dear firend now as well, not just someone that books me. Because I have been a creative enthusiast since being very young it literally drives me so exciteable when I see the efforts of a such a team going places with their work together. He's okay to chat to I guess, we take the micky out of each other no end but I always win so it's all good! :)
For any other models that may be looking at arranging a shoot with James: you will get on with him like a house on fire. He is extremely kind hearted, commited to his shoots and a wonderful laugh/company to be around. Professionalism comes as standard with James as he respects the models he shoots unconditionally. As I say, I am so very looking forward to our next shoot together and recommend James to the moon and back.
Yesterday I had the most wonderful pleasure of working with James for the first time and already I am very much looking forward to working with him again! Not only is James the greatest gentleman with top respect and care for the model but his jolly personality and enthusiasm makes him a great deal of fun to shoot with. :)
James picked out a truly wonderful location and we had a real field day bouncing off one another with ideas - he was extremely welcoming of my suggestions and I could not believe where the time went! He takes all the steps towards perfecting a vision and the communications during the shoot were just as helpful/concise as pre-shoot. Not for a second would I hesitate to recommend James, a first class chap who brings so much to a shoot.
Thanks again James,

I have a keen interest in sports and modelling and have photographed in both these areas, but I'm now keen to pursue modelling more specifically.
I do not have a studio myself but I have access to studio facilities and have gained a lot of experience in this area. I also like outdoor work, with models in a variety of environments and scenes. I like to mix up my shooting between urban and rural landscapes, emphasising the coastal scenery and countryside in and around my hometown.
Experience I am an amateur freelance photographer and have been doing this for approximately six years.
