As a general rule, the stranger the concept is, the more likely I am to be excited by it. I enjoy the surreal and when original concepts are twisted in some manner. Combining this with the alternative style and I have found that great images can be created.
My main inspirations within styles are H.R.Giger, Victoria Frances, Tim Burton, Him Henson
and several others.
My rates are £10-£15 per hour, depending ofcourse on travel and makeup and such, however I'm still happy to do TF shoots if I think that it will either benefit my Portfolio or the idea is ingenious.....usually one and the same.
Started out simply helping out a couple of photographers in University and friends who wanted to become photographers, and I suppose thats where the passion started. In heinsight I should have kept in touch with them and organised some shoots to see how far we have all come.
I then decided to go the other side of the lens and did photography for a while, however I couldn't be happy with it when I really wanted to get in on the pictures so I put it down and took up modelling. Initially starting with shoots with friends and family, then building up to the more interesting, surreal and stylized shoots.
My experience is quite extensive, I have worked group shoots, themed shoots, for artists and students, underwear shoots, infact I am getting to a stage where there is very little that I haven't done...But there is always more or inventive twists on concepts I have played with already. I am all ears if you feel you have something new I would suit.
