I had my first shoot with Neil today, communication was good before and during the shoot. He is comfortable to work with and defiantly knows what he is doin, I had great fun on the shoot and will be working with him again in the future. I'd recommend him to anyone considering booking him .

Worked with Neil on my London tour. Really nice guy. Very complimentary, respects models and really takes his time for each shot taken. He's an extremely talented man! Oh and he has the most gorgeous house ever, and makes a very nice cup of tea! Even went to the shops to get us some biccies :). Would recommend and definetely would work with again.

I had a lovely shoot with Neil yesterday - a nice way to finish the year and one of the most relaxing shoots I've had in a long time. The pace was slow and careful, with plenty of time spent checking details and swapping cameras between shots. Neil is very pleasant and calming, and made me lots of tea. Thanks!

Thoroughly recommended. We did some beautiful artistic portraits using natural light to great effect. It was beautiful in its simplicity. Thank you ever so much.

Neil was friendly with very good communications before the shoot. He was clear in what he wanted, had sought out locations so we didn't waste time and he was very considerate to me throughout the shoot. Can't wait to see the shots! I hope to shoot with him again soon :)

I am happy to add my recommendation for Neil's photographic work, especially art nude. He has developed an interesting style inspired by the French photographer Pascal Renoux but has added his own touches. He also likes working with models who do not have a conventional 'model' look and that is refreshing to say the least. I apologise for the late recommendation but we have had some misunderstandings in the past, which it is my sincere hope they can now be buried and forgotten. I worked with Neil from 2008 to 2009 on a few shoots. Several of his pictures can be seen in my online portfolios and have received praise for my performance as a model and for his photographic skills and vision.

Experience
I am a very experienced photographer in most fields of photography. With over 40 years behind the camera, I consider it to be my passion rather than my job. My main focus is on fineart photography whether it be landscapes, nudes or abstracts and continue to strive to explore and grow in those fields. I work in both digital and film formats, each having it's own unique qulities and idiosyncrasies. Please visit my website for examples of my work:

I do take on commissions and examples of previous assignments are available on request.

Model
Worked with Suki yesterday on a very successful 2 hour photo shoot. She is extremely professional in both her attitude and ability as a model and needed very little directing. All in all highly recommended. Thanks!
Model
I don't like leaving negative feedback but in this case it just has to be done. I responded to her persistent emails and promise that she was adept at doing art nude. I gave in. I have never worked with a model who was so uncomfortable being nude. As for the 17th C barn...it's made very clear when you arrive that you are restricted to one small room and a glass corridor. That would be fine however I was made to feel as if I can't move anything..not even a table lamp!!! Very very disappointing. The most unprofessional model I have ever worked with (and that includes amateurs and professionals).
