I shot with Rik last week, his pre shoot comms were great & I had a good idea of what he was looking to achieve from our shoot. He's a really friendly guy turned up on time...made me feel very comfortable during the shoot. From what I've seen so far the images turned out very well. Would strongly recommend him. Thanks Rik.

I shot with Rik at the amazing Murder Mile studios yesterday, and have to say that not only was he extremely kind, courteous and easy to work with, he was also very understanding of the fact that I was (admittedly) not firing on all cylinders due to severe insomnia over the past week. I very much hope I get the opportunity to work with Rik again, so that I can prove to him that I do usually make far more rude jokes than I was capable of yesterday, and so he can prove to me that the Girls Aloud music didn't actually belong to him! :P Thanks Rik :)

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.

TFP
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 :-}

Themes/Ideas
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.

Work With Me !
After reading the above(!), if you are interested in shooting ANY of the themes below; don’t hesitate to get in touch, as there are literally dozens of ideas that I’ll need to shoot for each and every theme listed, and more ! :-}

At present, I am particularly concentrating on the following topics of ideas, and welcome interest from genuine models that would like to enhance their ‘folios;

'Arthouse'
Art-Nude (classical figure), Implied Nude, Implied Topless,
Deserted Building, Urban Landscape, Naked in Nature

'Funstuff'
Manga, Pin-Up, Tease, Innocence, 50’s Inspired, Cliché;

Clichéd
Loads of fun ideas in this category !! …please ask for details !

'Arty Ideas'
Colourblast, Glamour-in-Squalor, Conceptual

‘Street’
CyberPunk, Graffiti Wall, Urban Landscape

Fashion
Elegance, Lingerie, Corsetry/Basque, Boudoir, Burlesque

'Location'
Bluebell Wood, Forest Glade, Deserted Beach, Farm-Barn,
Summer Meadow, Sand Dunes

Classic
‘Page 3’, Calendar Girl, Bikini-figure, Glamour, Topless, Calendar Nude

'Soft Erotica'
Light Bondage, MF couples, FF couples, Dominatrix, ‘Voyeur style’


The Small Print

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 :-} )

Misc Stuff

• 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
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 !


Experience
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.
