My Work Ethos
In my opinion, every single image that appears worthy of inclusion in a portfolio should be a crafted, well lit, perfectly exposed photograph, that has a clear degree of artistic merit which complements both the range and style of the model, as well as highlighting the skills of the photographer. I will always strive to achieve that by planning each and every shoot meticulously.
As mentioned above I *will* currently consider TFP projects with models. To get the best results, I tend to work models hard at shoots, feel the results are always worthy of the extra effort we *both* put in :-}
The work that I am currently creating is wide and varied, and includes themed shoots with specially constructed sets, right through to portraiture, fashion, art-nude and erotica. There is certainly something in the range of my ideas that will suit every type of model and every level of work.

What I Do
Quality, artistic, glamorous photography to all levels that is enhancing to the portfolios of both the model and myself. I always plan shoots well in advance, and provide models with a shootplan.
What I Don’t Do
Photography in the ‘pro-am style’ that seems to predominate the majority of online ‘models’ portfolios,
or 'cheesy glamour' snaps (unless it's being done deliberately as a total pisstake :-} )
• I am happy to work from my own home (my wife makes great coffee) or in models’ homes, hotels or any other locations suggested by the model, although many of my planned shoots tend to be be studio-based or at private outdoor locations.
• I always discuss & contribute towards models' travelling expenses.
• Chaperones are generally discouraged, unless it is agreed that one is absolutely necessary for genuine reasons; However, I will *not* shoot models under 18 *without* an ADULT chaperone under any circumstances.
• I always insist on releases to be signed, even if just as a record of a shoot.
Levels will always be clearly agreed prior to each shoot and be appropriate for the task at hand. I will *never* push for anything over what has been agreed in advance. However, please note: ‘Nude’ and ‘Art-nude’ means NO CLOTHES; After many years in the business, I still can’t work out why this comes as a surprise to some models !
NOW TAKING ON NEW WORK !! :-}
I'm currently shooting all sorts of work from Fashion to Glamour, so *whatever* your style and set levels are -
I'd love to work with you. Even if you have little or no experience, no worries; however I would ask that beginners agree to a Time For Prints arrangement (however I will of course pay all reasonable expenses too):-}
About Me: I'm a photographer of some 35 years standing, and over the years have worked with many top ‘names’ in the industry, including many of the best known ‘Page 3’ models. My work has been widely published in magazines, newspapers, calendars and across the web.
After several years away from the scene due to family circumstances, I have ‘returning to the fold’; however due to my extended break, I am creating a totally new portfolio from scratch !
I have created a range of set ‘themes’ and ideas to structure the look of the new folio.
To this end; I am now actively seeking models that perfectly fit the criteria for each theme. Models that work with me on the images that I have in mind are guaranteed to be rewarded with stunning results that will enhance both our portfolios.
