I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Ian recently, at his friend's incredible location and grounds. He had with him his photographer friend Jules, and together they worked on some beautiful outdoor nudes with me, making sure I was comfortable and happy throughout, putting me in some beautiful scenes and on some vintage props! I am definitely looking forward to the next shoot. Thanks!

Had a very great shoot with Max last thursday. He made me feel so at ease. Max is a very good professional photographer, with a lot of great ideas for creating amazing images. He is a respectful gentleman, patient, comfortable to work with and plenty of kindness. Thanks a lot Max! Hope to see you soon! Diane XX

A few days ago, I did a photoshoot at Winwick Hall with Max Operandi and Ulorin Vex. It was a fantastic, fun shoot in which I felt very comfortable despite having never met before. Not only this, but I have already received some images (that I am thrilled with)! Highly recommended, and looking forward to working together again.

Had a fabulous day with Maximus in his proffesional studio.I found it such a pleasure to work with such a talented gentleman. He made me feel at ease and we had such a laugh. I hope to work again with Maximus as a make up and hair designer on our next shoot. Needless to say Maxims is a five star photographer, and 'a must' for both new models and experienced.

Had a fantastic afternoon with Ian and model Joanna, at Winwick Hall, Amazing location, endless spots to shoot in. I really enjoy working with Ian as he takes time over the shot to get it right, rather than snapping away quickly. He gives great direction and takes an awesome shot! I would definately recommend working with him if you get the chance. Thanks Jenna

I had another shoot with Ian recently, alongside the model Ivory Flame. The entire shoot was a joy. Pure fun.

Had a short shoot with Maximus recently at the stockport group shoot artistic nude event. During our session he acted in a professional manner and worked very well alongside the photographer he was paired with, was very polite and helpful to both myself and the other photographer. He considered what he was wanting to produce and was good at giving direction too. Would work with him again if the opportunity arises. All the best Chrissie

I shot with Ian at a group shoot event in Stockport last weekend - he comes with a clear idea of the shots he would like to achieve and gives great direction to produce some fantastic images. I would definitely work with him again, and recommend him to any model.

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Ian yesterday for a few hours. Ian IS a totally professional photographer, in every sense of the title, as its his real full time job and he is excellent at it ! Although very professional in his work, Ian is a very warm, friendly and easy to work with person too. Everything a model could hope for in any photographer they work with. Thank you Ian for a lovely shoot, I am already looking forward to next time, big hugs Ivy x

Shot with Ian on Saturday, took a friend along as I am just starting to build a portfolio and wanted some moral support :) Ian was fine with this, really friendly and gave me great direction and encouragement throughout. The studio was also comfortable and made me feel relaxed. Will certainly be working with Ian again in the future if he will have me back! :) Thanks again and I am looking forward to seeing my final pics! xxx

Up to nude
Very Experienced
Will Accept:
Paid work or TFP/CD

The studios are warm, clean, private with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Most models like to do thier own make-up and I have a selection of non-allergenic make-p available. Stylist and MUA's can be brought in by request.


I am always looking for models, actors and dancers who would like to work with me on projects. Experience in performing arts may be helpful, but modeling experience is not always required as direction will be given. Most projects do not require working fully nude, but models should be comfortable and confident with their bodies and sexuality.

Since being on Purestorm I have been very lucky to work with some great models and I would like to thank them all for their hard work. Due to demand I now have to limit the number of TFCD shoot that I do, so please do not be offended if I have to decline any requests to do TFCD work. I am however looking to develop ongoing working relationships with a limited number of models who are happy to pose for high end Fine Art Nude experimental lighting projects. Perfect figures are not essential, but must have that X factor.


If you are going to be a professional your research on the Photographer and the Models they have worked with. Like many other experienced Photographers who work in the Fine Art Nude field, we have a reputation to protect and always work on a strictly professional basis. If however you are under 20, even for fashion work, I always require a chapperone to be present.

Remember PURESTORM is your shop window, so lets make the most of it with some great images!

Although being qualified in Photography for over 30 years, I chose to work in the advertising industry as an Art Director for many leading London Advertising Agencies.

Max Operandi (my photographic name) has become renowned worldwide for Fine Art Nude images or "Nu Vintage Nude" as they have been labeled. Based in Northamptonshire only 45 mins from London, St Pancras, I have worked with many of the UK's finest Nude Models and my work has been featured in Exhibitions and Fine Art Magazines...
