I worked with Matt for the second time at a model day at Cheltenham Photo Studios... he had good communications, turned up on time and was professional and friendly on the day... he is certainly an interesting character, a little cheeky at times but just likes a laugh and a gibe too. Focussed and confident with his photography... I can recommend him to models as a safe, professional & fun guy to work with.

Ive had the pleasure of working with MG about 3 times now and he is always a joy to work with. He is passionate about his work, and shoots a range from commercial/fashion to lingerie and a little glamour MG is very professional, considerate of his models and makes you feel very comfortable. Love working with MG and highly recommend working with him

I spent an evening with Matt, who is a great guy to get on with & a fabulous photographer. Matt is technical-minded so his skills stretch further than photography. I found his input to the shoot valuable, as is his wealth of knowledge in this field. I am keen to shoot with Matt again & can highly recommend him.

I recently took a trip upto The Cotswolds and shot and stayed with Matt for 2 days straight - so i bet he's glad to have got rid of me! Haha. Matt is genuinely such a nice, down to earth, lovely guy, with an amazing sense of humour and a real ability to make it feel as if you've known him years. He has a fantastic eye for detail, and knows exactly what makes a shot from all angles. He also got me a fantastic commercial job whilst i was visiting, so in all it was a very successful trip; made all the more fun and comfortable due to Matts hospitality and kind nature. Thank you again mister.. Until next time!!

I had a great shoot with Matt at his home. His house is wonderful for shoots, theres old beams and great windows to sit in, it really made for some lovely images. His dog is the cutest thing and I really want a spaniel now! Matt is professional, kind and a great photographer. I would love to shoot with him again, next time maybe outdoors in the summer. He is so fun to work with and really knows how to make you produce great poses. I would recommend this photographer to any model, hes fantastic! xx

Had my second shoot with Matt again recently :) Has been a few years since we worked together and he has improved so much more! As usual, Matt is upbeat, professional, enthusiastic and hard working. He picked me up from where i was staying and took me home again, and even bought me some food :) He is a friendly and all round great Photographer, youl'l have to get used to his dry wit haha but he is funny :) I would reccommend Matt without hesitation and look forward to working with him next time i'm in the area. Thanks again Matt :)

This was my second shoot with Matt after a very long gap from the first however Matt was still as friendly as I remember and such a lovely person to be around and so easy to get on with. He is very professional, respectfula and a complete gentleman. He has great ideas and a great eye what I saw on the back of the camera were some beautiful images. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Matt to anyone and would happily work with him again and again!

I worked with Matt when I'd first started out at the end of 2005. We're still in regular contact, and have worked with each other a couple of times since. Super bloke, genuine, and a good friend.

I'm a photographer with plenty of experience and widely published for press photography but not particularly fashion / glamour. Now that statement I see more and more and seems to have little or no connection to the quality of your images. So allow the images to speak for themselves!

Like most photographers, I don't do fashion and glamour work 7 days a week and it's not the type of photography that I make my income from but when I do it, I put 110% in to it which translates in to the end results being quite different to some of the other work out there.

You'll notice from my portfolio that I don't show body parts for the sake of showing them. A girl standing naked in front of my camera really isn't the main objective! It's to create something unique and that yells out! ...whether that be with your clothes on or off and whether that be showing body parts or not!

I very rarely do time for print work or test shoots but if you are a highly experienced professional model and genuinely feel that we could both benefit mutually then by all means ask. Please dont take that as I'm up my own ass! It's just that TFP has to benefit both equally or there is no point in doing it.

I do sometimes offer portfolio shoots which I charge only the location fee to shoot and then I charge £25 per A4 print and digital edit on top of that. Whether you walk away with 2 pictures or a dozen is entirely up to you and the quality of the image and there is absolutely no expectation on my behalf. Owing to a recent incident in case it is not 100% obvious - unedited images are not an option.

It is important for me to get to know each and every model that I photograph. Rapport between photographer and subject is extremely important to enable the results that I get. I only do this job because it's fun. The day it stops being fun will be the day I give up! I'm based on South Warwickshire and North Oxfordhire border.

Where do I shoot? Up until quite recently I shot in my own studio but I now prefer to shoot on location. The locations that I have used range from Country houses to Penthouse Apartments to Bridal Suites... If youre thinking of adding something really glamorous to your portfolio talk to me, you'd be surprised how little an amazing location costs.

AND FINALLY I'LL REPEAT THE TOP BIT AS SO MANY MODELS DON'T GET IT.... : IF YOU ARE A MODEL AND ARE LOOKING FOR PAID WORK THEN PLEASEEEEE DON'T EMAIL ME ASKING TO PAY YOU.... AND IN RETURN I WON'T EMAIL YOU ASKING TO PAY ME! :-) SAY HI BY ALL MEANS AND EVEN CONSIDER OFFERING COLABORATION IDEAS AS THEY REQUIRE NO PAYMENT EITHER SIDE. ON THE ODD OCASSION THAT I DO OFFER PAID WORK I WILL CONTACT MODELS DIRECT OR ON THE VERY VERY VERY ODD OCCASION PUT A FORUM POST.

One last rule : I will never say anything about you on a forum post that I wouldn't say to your face in real life! I'm absolutely 100% fair and up front.

SOME TRANSLATIONS THAT YOU MAY SEE IN PHOTOGRAPHERS PROFILES

'Multi Award Winning Photographer' : I won the good fellowship cup at prep school - It seldom says what the awards were for or who gave the awards!'

'Highly creative talented photographer' : Really? You be the judge of that one! It's only really the man with the chequebook that is in a position to judge that one!

'I run my own professional studio' : Wow! My dog has her own basket too! If the work you produce in your studio is great then fair do's!

'I run my own model agency' : so can you, ask a few mates if they fancy doing a few modelling jobs then build your own website and there you go....

so NO I DONT RUN A MODEL AGENCY, NO I HAVENT WON ANY MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AWARDS... I'VE NEVER APPLIED FOR ANY EITHER! :-)

Basically what I'm saying is one thing.... LOOK at their work! Nothing else and nothing more. Don't believe references, mail the people that wrote them and ask them privately. Theyre never going to say he's a dirty old perv on a profile reference just as I'm not going to say on your reference that the side of my house was easier to get a good picture of!! LOL you get my gist though!...
