An experienced Birmingham based photographer with ready access to a large commercial studio. I make no secret of the fact that I am not a full time professional, but I have been shooting models, family portraits, pet portraits, sports and assisting on weddings and social photography events for many years with a few publications and competition wins under my belt.
As photography is not my "day job"and I do it because I enjoy it, my work is not motivated by money, but more by a passion to create great images (or try to); consequently, models/clients receive a service driven by quality as opposed to profit and an experience that is friendly, fun and productive.
My main areas of experience are in studio based beauty headshots, FHM style glamour and poster style shots, but I am always looking to expand and improve my portfolio and photography skills; often going through phases of trying different genres of photography. It would be nice to do so with like minded, fun people who are looking to obtain portfolio shots whilst having a good time. Currently, I am looking to enhance my own portfolio with more realistic setting location work, whether that be high street fashion, gym fitness, boudoir or voyeuristic "girl at home" themes; although these are by no means my only areas of interest.
I do occasionally work TFP, TFCD or TFT (Time for Time - you help me with my shots and I'll shoot yours for you) with models who I think will provide the level of results that we would both be happy with. If you feel we could collaborate to our mutual benefit, please feel free to contact me. Due to demand and time constraints, I simply can’t accept every TFCD request I receive and I have to be quite selective; so please do not be offended if I can’t fit you in for a short while, or if I don’t think you are quite right for the ideas I am currently working on; I do get a fair few requests and I will always try to answer every email. A signed model release, to clearly set out our agreement and use of any images, will usually be required whether the arrangement is a paid shoot or TFCD; a draft copy is available upon request prior to any shoot being confirmed.
Once again, thanks for viewing my page and profile – I hope you like what you have seen and that my images speak for themselves.
