Worked with Derek and his lovely wife Lisa on an all day shoot for a lingerie/clubwear client. I was made to feel welcome and well looked after through out the whole day. Lisa helped with any wardrobe assistance so help was always on hand if needed. The hours flew and before we knew it all the outfits had been shot so we moved on to some other work including art nude and some portraiture.
I look forward to working with Derek and Lisa again.
Highly professional and recommended without a doubt :)
Had an absolutely wonderful shoot with Derek, loved every minute of it. Derek is friendly and polite, communication was great, he was helpful, provided great feedback and direction and I highly recommend working with him =).

First time ever working with Derek, was a fantastic location shoot and the images he created were stunning. A wonderfully professional photographer with a lovely family - was a pleasure to shoot with. Also very patient with my badly managed time keeping! Will look forward to working with him again :)

Shot with Derek today and was a refreshing change. He's VERY easy to get on with and made sure i was comfortable throughout.
He really is a lovely guy and i can't recommend him enough! Girlies book a shoot with him! You will not be disapointed :)
Thanks again Derek.
Had a second shoot with Derek today, this time with me being 7 months pregnant and at his home with the help of his lovely wife Lisa. Derek and Lisa were very accommodating and kind, making sure I had plenty to eat and drink and that I wasn't uncomfortable or achey. Really love the images that I've seen so far and hope to shoot with Derek again in the future once I've regained my post-pregnancy shape. Thank you very much :)
August 2010 - Had an excellent location shoot with Derek today despite being interrupted by many a passer-by/child/dog/nut-throwing-squirrel :)
The shoot was fun, informal and I felt at ease from the onset. Derek is a really nice guy and I'd recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to improve their portfolio. I love the images and am very much looking forward to seeing the finished result.
Thank you very much! x
Derek is really easy to work with and get on with. Communication was kept up before the shoot, he was punctual, got some great images, and sent me the images to see within a day - what more could you ask for?! Would be happy to work with again.
Just had a shoot with Derek. He's a nice guy and very concious of the model and making her feel at ease. We shot art nude in the woods and it turned out to be a sort of secret garden style shoot, which worked very well. He knows how to set up outdoor lighting to make really nice effects. I look forward to seeing some of the photos =]
Had a great group shoot with Derek... hes professional... polite... friendly and chatty... I really enjoyed the shoot I hope to work with him again soon... I def reccomend... Thanks... Charley xXx

Paid work or TFP/CD
I can travel (within reason) and I'm always interested in shooting in different locations that will enhance the images, so if you know one, get in contact.
Chaperones are not generally required, but you may bring one for the first 5 minutes just to check out everything is ok. After this I expect to be able to get on with the shoot without distractions. I always have the safety and comfort of every model I shoot with, as a paramount concern of mine. Please ask for references from other models I have shot to prove my professional attitude in this area.
Please do me the honour that if I contact you or if I reply to your request, please have the courtesy of replying. It is, as I am, only polite. :)
I have recently downgraded my account on here, which prevents showing as many pictures in my portfolio. Please check out my website and Facebook pages for more images.
If I'm contacted I always reply within 24 hours, normally earlier, so what do you have to lose.
* TFCD or Paid * Please not that I will only do a paid shoot if the model is experienced and/or has varied references. Models that are new, amateur or inexperienced will only be accepted on a TFCD basis. Sorry but if you are new you are looking for images to expand your portfolio first and payment comes with experience. With regards to paid shoots, there is never an obligation to provide images to the model after the shoot, but I normally give a few out of courtesy. If it is images you are after then a TFCD route will be more appropriate.
**Current shooting dates (mostly weekends)**
FOR THE TIME BEING I CAN ONLY ACCEPT TFCD SHOOTS NOT PAID ONES....SORRY :(
Experience I have a studio in Clanfield fully equipped and I'm also capable shooting out on location.
The styles I shoot are anywhere between fashion - art nude, but I especially love shooting vintage :)
I am a member of two established Photographic/ Photoshop associations and constantly do as many training courses as I can afford. You always need to learn something new!
Worked with Charley yesterday as part of a workshop at Pixel-8....she was everything I hoped. Professional, fantastic personality and a beautiful body. Who could ask for more?
I'm hoping that I can work with her again in the very near future on a one-to-one session.
To anyone who hasn't worked with her, make it a top priority!!
