Had a great time at my shoot with Lenz. He made me feel very comfortable, especially as it was the first time in years that I've had a shoot. Got some fab pics, and the bacon sarnies are legendary! Great guy, made me laugh lots!
Well what a shoot, great fun from start to finish.
Stephen really is a true gent. Communication from the first message to the shoot day was second to none.
When i arrived he was so welcoming and made sure i was well looked after. Mug of builders tea and a bacon sandwich and great conversation. Smile
Through out the shoot i felt completely relaxed and made to feel very welcome. We managed to get some great shots and different ideas.
On this shoot i had the pleasure of working with Grace Ellen, she was so much fun as a partner in crime, but Stephen coped with us both Smile
Look forward to coming to visit you again soon for another shoot.
Our shoot was on January 6th, 2016.
Stephen is lovely to work with, professional but instantly felt comfortable and at ease. Loved the conversation, very interesting and accomplished man!
So happy with the photos, and sent them over so quickly which was great as was itching to see them after the shoot.
Also very respectful of levels, Would highly recommend to all. :)
Had a fantastic shoot with Stephen yesterday, shooting and creating images on the beautiful sunny beach and around the stunning area of Arundel in West Sussex. On arrival he was very welcoming with lots of interesting stories to tell from his past life, which kept me intrigued all day long. He was respectful, friendly, polite and helpful with advice. The images that we created together were truly amazing. Communication beforehand was fantastic! Thank you once again and for a great day out. Highly recommend.
Stephen is a very friendly man and he made me feel at home at his house with great conversation and treated me very well with a lot of respect. His bacon sandwiches are the best you'll have! The outcome of the shoot was even better than what I wanted as the photographs are professional and his use of natural lighting makes his photography unique, classy and brings out the best in the model. I will continue to work with him for many future shoots and I strongly recommend him to other models.
'Lenz' was a very pleasant man indeed and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute working with and talking to him!
Thinking I would probably only work with him as a one-off because of the distance, after meeting him and seeing some of the images from our shoot I will definitely be working with him again.
A very interesting, down to earth fellow with some amazing stories and experiences from his life, already! Highly recommend him to every model wanting great shots and a good day out with someone new.
Thank you so much!! :)
Taken me a while to get this comment up due to having a break from the modelling, but i must write a comment about my experience with this man.
The communication before the shoot was great, we shared ideas and Stephen was very friendly and helpful.
On arrival he was a polite, gentle guy and very welcoming. We spent an entire day shooting until it got late. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Stephen, he is a very interesting person and kept me chatting all day long. The pictures we created were magical and i still use them for my dance portfolio to this day.
SO Stephen, i am so sorry this comment is late, but thank you once again for the wonderful photoshoot. 100% recommend!!
Really enjoyed my photo shoot with stephen, very easy to work with, very relaxed.
Think the pictures come out really nice, so pleased with them :)
Think we will definately be doing a shoot in the future, Thank you
From the moment I have first talked to Stephen to arrange our shot I knew everything was going to be more than I could ever expect.If you are looking for a special photographer in every possible way,then he is definitely the one.All i wanted was to feel comfortable around him and have some good shots.And we did both and above all I won a memorable day beside a valuable man.
Steve (Lenz) is a lovely man and still continues to be one of my favourite photographers to work with. He always has a very open mind to each of his shoots and is always has a very creative vision which I find most interesting. Overall we always manage to create something different in each of our shoots to an excellent standard of work

Had another great shoot with Lenz the other day!! He cooked us a lovely breakfast and dinner as we worked over a several hour period.. The images were incredible and he really brought out my dramatic side! I had really been looking forward to working with Lenz again and luckily the shoot lived up to my expectation.. We were both really happy with the images and think we created something really rare!! Not to mention we both had great fun as Lenz is such a lovely guy. Overall I am really pleased with how the shoot went!!

I shot with Stephen (Lenz) yesterday, I have been in the industry for several years and in the past have mainly worked up in London so was delighted to find out that Stephen was so local!
He is an amazing photographer and a delight to work with. He immediately put me at ease with his sense of humor and easy-going attitude.
The pics look great, can't wait to see the finish result!! I would highly recommend working with Stepehn (Lenz) to all models out there looking to expand their portfolio
As this was my first photo shoot in a studio I didn't quite know what to expect but Stephen put me at ease straight away. We had a little chat over a cuppa before we got started which really helped both of us gather what we each wanted to gain from the shoot.
Stephen guided me throughout poses and expressions to get the best possible result. He was also very open to my own ideas. Throughout the shoot there was not a moment that was awkward or uncomfortable, Stephen is very fun to work with and does the best Tommy Cooper impressions!
The photos that I saw on the camera were amazing. I can't wait to see the edited photos and hope to arrange another shoot soon.
Stephen was an absolute pleasure to work with, from the off set Stephen made me feel at ease and comfortable within my surroundings. He guided me the whole way through our shoot and made working together very creative and exciting. Stephen is a must to work with :)
Had my second shoot with Stephen today and it was just as good if not even better than before! We got straight into it and got the shots we wanted. I look forward to or next shoot!
My shoot with Stephen was absolutely amazing! He made me feel very relaxed and confident with the poses and looks we created. I would definitely recommend working with him! And hope to work with him again!
It was a great pleasure to work with Lenz yesterday (04 Nov) . Despite the bad weather and the lack of light we got some great shoots and we had a lot of fun.
He makes his models feeling like home right away and he treats them very well and with respect, and most of all he makes them laugh. You can't get bored with a man like him and you will always have something to talk about with Lenz.
He helped me a lot during the shoots and I learned so many things from him. I will definitely recommend him and I can't wait for the next shoot with him.
Had a second shoot with Stephen at the end of last week and once again we got some great shots. It was my second lingerie shoot but I couldn't have felt anymore relaxed in what I was doing. Would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a reliable photographer and a boost to their confidence.
Amazing shoot with Stephen this afternoon...
Stephen made me feel at home straight away and we were quick to get some simple yet creative ideas to get the best shots. His originality in using only natural light definitely paid off and I was shocked with the results of some very amazing images as a result! Very pleased with his help and support throughout the shoot meaning I stayed confident from start to finish. Would definitely work with Stephen again.
A couple of weeks back, I had my FOURTH shoot with Stephen! It was great as usual, and so were the photos produced as the final result. I would highly recommend Stephen.
Recommendation from 1st shoot, June 2012:
Working with Stephen yesterday was amazing! He is very professional, skilful and friendly. He is also very accommodating, treats his models exceptionally well, and even took a break from shooting to drive down to the shops and buy me some food when I got hungry!
The photos, of course, also turned out to be brilliant, and we managed to successfully achieve a wide variety of different styles, with the help of Stephen's great ideas, organisation and wardrobe that he supplied.
I would love to work with Stephen again. Highly recommended photographer.
Amazing and a professional photographer using natural light. Today Lenz has made me feel very beautiful inside and out. He is a wonderful man to work with who you can feel very comfortable around and take very good care of you. He knows whats best and we give you the best advice. He is a very bubbly and caring man also and very good to talk to and helps you open up. I would recommend you to him 500%.
Had a shoot with Stephen today and it was an absolute pleasure! He was such a joy to work with, a complete down to earth, diamond guy! When arriving we had a good old chat before starting.. we managed to get a lot of pictures taken and I felt very confident in front of him. Im so pleased with the pictures I have so far. I cant wait to see the rest! I even got my lunch made for me, with lots of tea :)..
Stephen is a must to work with. I will be paying a second visit very soon :)

I am interested in all aspects of photography, especially by working with Models who have a professional attitude and approach to obtaining excellent results for all concerned. I think that Purestorm provides a fantastic platform for Models and Photographers regardless of level of experience. Nobody can start at the top of a profession, everyone needs to gain some experience from somewhere and this is the place to begin your journey. So it is for these reasons that I welcome all and any enquiries for helping those new Models, who are just starting out, to get their Portfolio's started without having to initially pay large sums of money or put up home photos or mobile phone photos onto their profiles or in their Portfolio's. I prefer to work using natural light and available light in either an indoor or outdoor location. My real ability is to instil confidence and bring out the very best in the person or people I am working with. I am very happy to do TFP or TFCD sessions to assist anyone who wishes to start a Portfolio or update their Portfolio. Please feel free to contact me.
I should make it clear that I prefer to work with Models on a one to one basis without others being present and this has worked perfectly well so far as you will see from my references on here (Purestorm).
I have been really fortunate to have had a cross section of people to work with so far and apart from the wonderful Purestorm Models, I have also worked with Actresses, Singer / Songwriters & Musicians, Dancers and Performing Arts Students. The reactions I receive from the results produced for each of them ensures that my enthusiasm and passionate approach to my endeavours remains at the very highest level of commitment.
I continue to have many more terrific shoots booked in my diary and I look forward to creating images that people will enjoy viewing and hopefully may even respect the efforts of the model and the guy taking them. But what the hell! I'm having a brilliant time and making so many new friends in creating these images, so I offer my grateful thanks to the Purestorm Team for setting up this site and enabling me (and people like me) to once again explore my (possible / dubious) potential in this art form. That is just one of the reasons why I have upgraded my profile on here and to also place some more images on my presentation. Cheers all! Lenz.
