Had a very enjoyable shoot with Mike. He is a genuinely lovely man, who was always keen to make sure I was warm enough and comfortable. He even made me lunch and dropped me off at the bus stop. On top of that, he provided some amazing props to work with and had a huge amount of creative ideas.

Ahh wow Mike I had an incredible afternoon with you! Full of laughs and loads of fun as well as getting some top class images. You have done a fantastic job! This shoot will certainly not be the last, I'm already looking forward to our next shoot to work on more ideas and dance moves and get though loads of wonderfull outfits Mike owns as well as more of my Dance costumes. It is a blessing to meet a photographer who shares my passion for dance and capture my dance moves to perfection. Highly reccommended! See you again soon Mike and thankyou again for a wonderfull afternoon :)

Mike and Chris were wonderful to stay with, as a new model I was a little nervous and they put me at ease, and looked after me beautifully. Mike is enthusiastic, creative, and capable of producing exquisite photographs, and treated me with great respect and kindness.

Had a fantastic shoot with Mike on the 25th Nov. Got train and bus to Lampeter and Mike very kindly picked me up from the bus stop to take me to his studio. Mike made me feel very welcome, comfortable and I had a fantastic day. He gave me very good direction and we got a fantastic variety of photographs. I have to say I'm definitely over the moon! Would recommend Mike to any model wanting to get some great shots for their folio. Go for it! Thanks again Mike :)

I would definately recommend shooting with Mike to anyone ...the most amazing warm welcome, consideration, sense of humour, and personal qualities that are hard to find in a person, and make the shoot so comfortable and at ease ...with every moment being fun. Pair those qualites with Mikes artistic creativity, skills and expertise, and ability to produce the most beautiful work and you can only begin to imagine a shoot with Mike. :D

With some 250 portfolio shoots now completed, my love of dance has not abated - and the work has extended into making portfolios for creative people in a variety of arts media.

But....I have to say...creative photography with an enthusiastic model, whether a novice or an experienced professional, is just the best fun I can imagine. Every shoot I have had has been filled with laughter and yours is certain to be the same!



Experience
A freelance photographer for many years - and then creative director for a successful media company - producing for major uk companies and working with leading actors and celebrities.

Located in a beautiful rural situation, the studio has a comprehensive professional lighting rig and a variety of large backgrounds. There is a fantastic wardrobe of clothes and props for you to draw on - the sea is 5 minutes away and there are forests and rivers nearby.
