I have been wanting to shoot with Phil since starting modelling so when the opportunity arose of course I grabbed it with both hands. Phil is passionate about his craft and is willing to go above and beyond to get the shot he wants, even scaling buildings! I was impressed with his ability to make the most of the situation we found ourselves in, with regards the weather, and I am confident he will produce some well worth images from our trek onto the Cornish Moors. I highly recommend working with Phil and hopefully I will get the priveldge again in the future.
Had a great shoot with Phil in the lakes. It was my first outdoor shoot and it was such fun. Phil made me feel really at ease and we experimented with different styles in beautiful locations. Thank you!
I really enjoyed working with Phil.
He has ideas which he shared with me & I shared with him & we came up with a few different sets some a little quirky each one loads of fun!
I found Phil professional, easy to work with, a good sense of humor & a photographer with ideas_which is a huge plus for any model!
I hope to see more from the work we did as I'm sure they are some cracking shots:)
Cassie would recommend Phil & have mentioned his name to few people I work with
I had a very short but very sweet shoot with Phil at a networking day. Very nice, professional and kind gent to work with. Hoping to get more time to work with him next time I am down. Highly recommended. The outcome images were fantastic! Take care, Nudey x
Phil and I had been wanting to work together for a while and to finally have the opportunity to do so was amazing! Not only is he an immensly talented photographer, but a genuinely nice person as well. We were shooting studio work, sometimes in a style that was a little different for him and me both! But I think we ended up with some really fab images and I have no reservations about recommending him to other models. Thank you very much for a great shoot,
Phil and I had been arranging a shoot since I forst joined purestorm! Finally we had chance to work together on a location shoot in the lakes! It was well worht the wait, we had a great morning down by the lake and in a bluebell wood! He is a joy to work with and so much fun to be around. We got some ace images and I cant wait to work with Phil again! :) x
I had a shoot with Phil today. He was really well prepared, great comms before the shoot and plenty of ideas on the day. Phil made me feel totally at ease and was really easy to talk to and have a laugh with.
He took a variety of shots, gave clear direction and was a joy to work with.
March 10 - Phil made me promise last time I'd never drive past his doorstep without stopping. I made sure I kept my promise and joined him for a couple of hours at a boat house at the weekend, followed by more location work where we were joined with Gazhilla. Phil is a top guy, an absolute gentleman and his photography is really growing. He's not afraid to push himself a little and I'm sure this will be his year. I'm really happy to have the relationship I do with Phil, shooting with a friend is so special. Thanks again Phil x
Oct 09 - Phil and I have spoken for months and finally managed to get a shoot together. We had built up a friendship over time and it was so lovely to get to meet him. Outstanding guy, absolute pleasure to work with and has some absolutely stunning locations on his doorstep! His photography and ideas for backdrops were just breathtaking.
Hoping to drag him up to Skye next year...thanks so much Phil x
Everything that's already been said!
It was only the second shoot I've done but he had really good ideas and I was relaxed and enjoyed it, also very good direction :)
Would love to work with you again.
had a really good productive shoot with Phil on the 15th and then again 25th. Have tried a few different things and hopefully they should work well. He's a very easy photographer to get along with as he will always try out something you suggest.
Lots of input and fun was had, cant wait to see the more recent pics we've taken!
UPDATE: Phil found the mingiest location possible in the area and took my best pics yet. Thanks Phil!!
Third shoot with Phil yesterday. I feel very lucky to have such a fantastic, friendly and professional photographer living so close by. Already planning another shoot for the near future.. I cant recommend him enough. Thanks again Phil :)
Second shoot with Phil and again very productive. I enjoyed this shoot even more than the first and would highly recommend him to anybody. Phil has a great eye for detail and is very patient and considerate. Already planning our third shoot :)
Had a short but very productive shoot with Phil last week which i thoroughly enjoyed. Phil had lots of ideas and was happy to give advise on poses etc which being a new model i found very helpful and comforting. The shoot was a lot of fun with plenty of giggles and resulted in some fab images so thank you Phil.. looking forward to our next shoot :)

I fully, highly recommend phill to any model. I reall y look forward to another shoot with phill soon.XXXXXXX
Had a shoot with Phil up in Scotland this evening and it was a very enjoyable.
Before the shoot Phil was very clear in his instructions to what he wished to produce, We done location artnudes. Phil turned up on time and we shot for a few hours. I would have no problems recommending Phil, and would love to work with him again in the future. :D thanks again
Another brilliant day with Phil in the lakes, its always a pleasure in working with Phil he is such good company and daring to get good shots it really does make the day fly by and its always a bonus when you produce some beautiful images too.
He really is brilliant at spotting an image and is producing more and more gorgeous work all the time. i cant wait to work with Phil again soon.
Highly recomended :D
Had my second shoot with Phil today, my first on location nude at a beautiful wooded area in the lakes! Believe me, working with Phil in such scenery is worth the travel!lol. If you get the chance, shoot with him, it will only benefit your portfolio!

Hi, I'm Phil, thanks for dropping by.
I hesitate to call myself a serious photographer, compared to some of the talent on here but I've been making photos, one way or another for quite a long time now. I live in the Lake District and shoot mostly location art nude studies against the stunning backdrop of the Lakeland scenery. I have worked with a few of the best models on Purestorm and would intend to work with most of them again and hopefully with many more.
Most of my work so far has been Art Nude and this will remain the main focus for this year, both to improve my portfolio and for publication. I have many, many stunning locations right on my doorstep and am always keen to work with models who would like to produce something a little different in an outdoor location. I also have several ideas for themed shoots that I would love to explore. If you are in the area, or just visiting and would like to shoot please get in touch.
Paid or TF… If I'm looking for a model for a particular shoot or idea I'm happy to pay, so long as your rates are reasonable enough. If it's for publication it will of course be paid. If you want to shoot with me, I'll do my best to accommodate you on a TF basis, so long as we can both get something from the shoot.
What am I looking for in a model? Attitude, attitude, attitude. The best art nude models that I have worked with are those who's love for what they do shines through, both in their pictures and their attitude. You know who you are and yes, I want to work with you.
Model Release and ID When I shoot I'm always considering publication but obviously not everything makes the cut. For paid shoots I always ask for a Model Release and 2 forms of ID. Not essential for TF work but useful.
Communication … • If we set up a shoot I expect comprehensive communications. • If you're traveling, a text to let me know you're on your way. If I'm traveling I'll text you. • Should communications break down at any point after a shoot is booked I will assume it is cancelled and let you know.
… and finally. If you like my portfolio and think I'm good, just remember … I couldn't create any of these images with the outstanding efforts of all the models I've worked with so far this year. Thank you.
