I'm Laura, I'm 32 and live in West Lothian. I travel to Edinburgh also. I do all my travelling via buses, so I don't tend to go much further. I will gladly meet models travelling to Edinburgh at the bus station or the train station. Space in my home is limited but I do have lights and backdrops, and the small space doesn't affect the final pictures. I enjoy shooting in model's own homes if not on location, for the setting variety. I have had a lot of experience doing outdoor location shoots for 9 years with many different models, mainly fashion/clothed and alt. styles. I also have experience doing shoots with models in their own homes, mostly lingerie/glamour. I'm always looking to expand my portfolio and my experience.
I sometimes shoot alongside my husband John, who is also a photographer (stphq) and models are welcome bring a chaperone to a shoot with us. When John and I shoot models together, the model will get images from both of us. I do not allow chaperones when I'm shooting models by myself, this is a non-negotiable personal policy. I shoot models of any age so long as they're 18+, of any gender. I often shoot with newbies to get their portfolio going. I'm easy-going and friendly and always aim to make models feel comfortable when shooting. Happy to hear from anyone looking to update/kick-start their portfolio, get a bit more experience or just to shoot for the fun of it.
**I work TF. I sometimes select clothes/jewellery to buy for selected shoots, if desired the model may keep these items from such shoots. I never give out unedited images, I always retouch. The photos from a TF shoot will be given to you via a private download link. However many final edits I end up with, you will get web-sized, watermarked versions of them all for use in your portfolio/personal promotion. Copyright remains with me and I do not permit the re-editing/altering of my images.**
