I had a really easy-going and enjoyable shoot with John. He made me feel very comfortable and was good at directing towards what he wanted. I got some really fab pictures so thank you very much :) I hope to work with you again in the future! It was a complete pleasure both working with you and meeting you! Best wishes Lyd xx
What can I say....John you are a star...thank you for letting me be a monkey on shoot ;-)
I had a small but very enjoyable session with John at Midlothian Camera Club a few weeks ago. Sadly I was in clothes but we worked together very well and hope to get a shoot with him again soon as lovely gent and very hard working photographer. Hanz :)

Depends on assignment
It is quite easy to get amateur models so I would normally do TFP&CD. If you've got tattoos don't be put off, I quite like them.
If you are a beginner model and need to expand your folio I can offer you a bit of direction and a proper studio to work in.
As a member of Midlothian Camera Club I have access to all the facilities and it is only 20 mins by car from the centre of Edinburgh. If you have no car it is a simple 31 bus ride. You have nothing to lose by contacting me! I also have a profile on ModelMayhem: http://www.modelmayhem.com/JohnB55
I get many unsolicited requests from models looking for paid work and quoting hourly rates - so don't be offended if I don't reply.
Experience I have a couple of years experience of studio work with models. Before that I was shooting mainly landscape and general photography.
