I've worked with Mike a couple of times now - he was an utter pleasure to work with, very friendly, knew exactly what he wanted. This type of work was entirely new to me but I felt completely at ease. I would happily recommend Mike and would definitely work with him again!
I posed for Mike's art class yesterday, and found it a welcoming and friendly group with plenty of heaters. Mike provided ample direction for poses and we did some creative funky stuff, which is always fun. :) I found Mike himself to be patient, friendly and hospitable; I would definitely pose for them again.
Mike is a great person. Inspiring, kind and wonderful to work with. Mike made me feel comfortable all the way through our shoot and we had a great and productive few hours together. I literally can't wait to see the paintings he will produce from our shoot and I enjoyed trying something a little different from Mikes usual style (we tried 'weird'-!!) Hehe. 100% recommended. Thank you Mike, was awesome to finally meet you. :)
People like Mike are the reason I love modelling and keep coming back. Saturday disappeared so quickly - I can't remember the last time I enjoyed myself so much during a shoot, or learned so many new things. A genuinely charming man, incredibly talented artist and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Work with him if you feel the need to create as part of your craft, and want to witness real passion for art.
Wow - what an amazingly inspirational guy! I had the absolute pleasure of being hired for the life drawing class, by Mike, and his comms were fantastic before hand as well as on site and after the shoot. All his fellow artists were also an absolute pleasure and inspiration to be around. Highly reccomended.
I had a wonderful time at an art group sitting as a life model organised by Mike today. Great comms before the day and very friendly, he's an amazing artist and is truly passionate about is work. I highly recommend him :)
I will try to keep this short and sweet -
Mike is awesome! a true artist and having the opportunity to meet him meant alot to me but also to work with him was fantastic. We done a little mixture of location nude work as well as some indoors. He was professional throughout and a good laugh, he even treated me to a posh lunch :D
Aside from all the usual "he was great at communicating and directing" I have to say he is a very intelligent gentleman who's stories I could easily listen to all night long.
So yes - very highly recommended by Miss Chrissie!
Till next time sexy ;-)
Oh My Goodness me, What amazing, Creative and inspriational man.
I love everything about art and Mike your just terrific. Not only a great guy to spend the day with, but so creative.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself Mike, Thank you xx
I had a wonderful shoot with Mike yesterday. His communications are exemplary. And he is a fantastic gent aswell as an amazing artist. I was lucky enough to be shown some of his work and WOW !!! I felt extremely comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole shoot - (this was my first art nude shoot) And had a great time throughout. The pictures which I saw at the end, were definately ones I was very pleased/proud off! Thanks again Mike, I had a blast!
I had the absolute pleasure to be Mike's muse for the day last Saturday, we made images all day which just got better and better as the time passed quickly by.
Mike is an extremely gifted man who uses creativity and simplicity to stunning effect. Would highly recommend!
What can I say about mike? Apart from the fact that he likes awesome music and that I felt completely and utterly at ease with him from the moment I met him, I can also say that he's also one of the most caring and considerate photographers I've had the pleasure of shooting with. We had a long shoot and I came away with a very hard choice of amazing photos. It's exactly how a shoot should feel like. He's such a talented painter, his work astounded me. If you think it looks good on here, just wait till you see it in person! Highly recommended. xx
Mike is an absolute pleasure to work with; a warm, intelligent and creative man, and an extremely talented artist. I was totally relaxed in his company and had great fun creating beautiful images; the time flew by without us even realising! Mike is full of wonderful ideas and makes sure that you are 100% comfortable with them. I would without doubt work with him again.
If you want to add something special and completely unique to your portfolio, look no further!
Had the pleasure of working with Mike, it was an experience not to be missed! Amazingly talented artist with some inspirational ideas. A lovely man who deserves to succeed in everything that he touches. I look forward to lots of on-going collaborative assignments and recomend him highly to all models!
After a major cock-up on behalf of our shared mobile network provider (I use the term "provider" loosely) this morning, I shot with Mike today. I am really pleased we did do it rather than tarnish each other with the timewaster brush (as we both were!!) - he was an utter pleasure to work with, very friendly, knew exactly what he wanted. This type of work was entirely new to me but I felt completely at ease. I would happily recommend Mike and would definitely work with him again! Dying to see what he creates from our images, although I have no doubt they'll be fab! :D
I had a home shoot with Mike where he was punctual, collected me locally, and made me feel completely comfortable in his home from the start. He is an extremely friendly, passionate and most of all talented photographer and the results from the shoot were outstanding. Mike is highly recommendable and I hope to work with him again in the future :)
I had such an enjoyable shoot with Mike - I felt inspired & energized, the whole experience was great. He's a pleasure to work with, a friendly & interesting person to talk to and his work is truly stunning, such gorgeous colours and textures. He is passionate about beautiful and eyecatching visuals, with great ideas & enthusiasm. I can't wait to see the paintings, very much look forward to working with him again, and would highly reccommend him to anyone.
mike was very professional from the first point of contact. When shooting from my home he was very respectful and we had lots of good conversations! Mike had some fantastic ideas and provided all the props we needed for the shoot! I recommend any model to shoot with mike if you are lucky enough to get the chance. Safe, polite friendly and reliable.

Up to nude
Depends on assignment
The type of model I will want to work with will probably be a brunette, who’s decided that the ‘shaven’ look is not for her. She will feel completely at ease in front of camera, be it fully clothed or totally nude. She will be a great communicator before the shoot, professional during it and – with any luck – very happy with the outcome!
Currently only taking on TF shoots.
Things I tend to avoid: Chaperones, surgical enhancements, obvious tattoos, txt speak or anything implied.
Experience Art Director turned Artist.
25+ years of hanging about in studios and on location, arguing with photographers, directing models, chasing assistants and arranging where to have lunch with the stylist.
I am now a full time artist with a select number of galleries around the UK that exhibit my work and I am constantly searching for my next muse …
