Had a shoot with Simon this morning and from start to finish he went above and beyond professionalism..i was given all the details clearly and consisely which helped emmensely when arriving on location. I knew exactly what was expected of me so i could breeze straight into the shoot relaxed and totally at ease knowing the concepts. Simon had fantastic pre shoot communications leaving nothing to guess work...but above his amazing eye for detail and being a talented photographer he is a lovely man and dare i say in this era a perfect gentleman. I am very excited indeed to see our work and hope Simon will be shooting me again shortly. Any model would achive amazing shots with him...and be lucky to collaborate with him.

I had the most fantastically unique shoot with Simon this week! His casting call was simply headed "I need a zebra" and with his amazing MUA, Tammy, we created the most amazing zebra shoot! From the moment I arrived, through 2 hours of make up and body paint and then the shoot itself I had so much fun. Simon is incredibly easy going, a true gentlemen, unbelievably polite and with a great sense of humour to boot! He knew exactly what he wanted to achieve from the shoot and his direction was spot on enabling us to get some fantastic results. I've already seen the proofs and am so excited to see the full edited images. This was my first time working with Simon and my first time being a zebra and I would whole heartedly recommend both!! Do not miss an opportunity to work with this guy - not only is he a great photographer but he is a great person to hang out with too. Thanks so much Simon.

Had my 2nd shoot with Simon yesterday, along with my fiancé Paul. This time we were in his studio and did a couple of location shots too. He's a lovely guy to work with and we got everything we wanted from the shoot and more! He's easy to talk to, makes you feel very comfortable and makes a great cuppa :) ....not to mention the fab pics!! Definitely recommended.

What a guy! So creative, technically brilliant, fun and interesting. Simon honestly managed to generate some of the most flattering and cool images of me to date. I loved every minute of the shoot and would absolutely highly recommend working with him, should you get the opportunity.

Arranged a shoot with simon recently, excellent pre shoot communications as well as giving good ideas about what he was looking to shoot. The location simon provided was perfect for the style of shoot. Simon was highly professional, gave good direction and was open to ideas to gain some lovely shots. Simon has a very friendly welcoming manner as well as a good sense of humour. I really enjoyed this shoot and looking forward to working with simon in the future. Highly recommended folks!

Fantastic shoot with Simon earlier today at an outdoor location fairly close to my home. Simon was well prepared and was immediately able to see potential image ideas in the Woodlands setting. He was professional throughout whilst at the same time relaxed and easy to work with - I was interested to hear of his work background/hobbies and the 2 hours passed very quickly! Simon is clearly a great photographer with some cool ideas for images which we worked hard to create together today! Highly recommended to other models. Hope to work with Simon again, many thanks, Lucy : )

Had the pleasure in working with Spooky on Tuesday and I must say at such short notice the shoot went great, and ran so smoothly. Even though this was a different kind of shoot I am used to, He was very professional and made me feel so comfortable and for that fact we achieved to get some great shots that I am very excited about. I would most definitely work with him again and hope to arrange something soon :) Thank you Spooky!x

Simon, is the only photographer, ive met, to turn around a shoot in around 12 hours from initial contact to completion. Fantastic geezer, who is a laugh a minute and if he didnt have a camera in his hand I would have dragged him down the pub for a chin wag, because this man is sooooo interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed our albeit brief shoot, but already planning to take over the world together in some sci fi experiment, very soon Great big thumbs up recommendation from me x

I had a very early morning shoot with Simon this week (when I say early, I mean 7am!). Despite the early hour, Simon was raring to go, packed full of ideas and enthusiasm. Simon is a fantastic guy, with a great sense of humour ad I'd love to work with him again some time. Thanks Simon :)

I got good vibes about this shoot and I wasn’t disappointed. I was really impressed that Simon sent me a concept sheet and a detailed email laying out what he was trying to achieve. During the shoot Simon took a lot of trouble to ensure lighting and composition were correct. Simon is very professional and a lovely guy. I don’t just recommend him, I highly recommend him!

I am principally a wedding and family portrait photographer working towards my licentiateship qualification with the RPS and a BA Hons in Photography with the OCA. I enjoy working in the studio as well as on location, and now have a studio I can regularly shoot out of. I also have a strong theatrical background and am keen to get away from the white background and shoot a number of more creative projects; please drop me a line if this might pique your curiosity.

When I am not taking photographs I can be found teaching A Level Photography and TV / Film Production.

Experience
I have been photographing models for over three years now; it has been a learning journey and although I would not say I am anywhere near being an expert, i can say I have learnt a thing or two along the way. I have shot in a number of studios and at an array of locations; I have worked with a range of wonderfully creative and lovely people.

So what does 2013 hold? I aim to continue expanding my repertoire and keep honing skills in studio lighting and off camera flash; this will also be the year I intend venture into art nude genres!

I pride myself on my professionalism and planning and my testimonials all support this. Most of my shoots are now paid although I will often put out castings for TF if I am looking to try out new ideas. A quick note on chaperones; whilst I have no issues with you being escorted to and from a shoot, I will not work with a chaperone present during the session.

Should you be interested in initiating work with me, please get in touch, but please also note that any such requests for work should either be TF or you paying me!
