David was great to work provided all the details i needed pre-shoot.
Also once arrived felt relaxed and ready to the pictures turned oput great. I would definitly reccomend and would love to work with David again.
overall great :)
William was a very professional and friendly character, I really enjoyed working with him and his use of random props! He really taught me what to expect of the modelling industry and to top it off produced some amazing pictures as well!
it was an absolute plesure to work david today must have been the best shoot i have done to date he made me feel welcome and at ease but yet still a real profesional he tought me alot of techniqes that im sure i will use for the rest of my career in the model industry he really got out of me what direction i could go and also showed me where i needed to improve and how i could improve i would definatly recomend any one to work with him thank you once again
The photoshoot was a great experience. A wide variety of styles were shot, made all the more fun by having an amazing selection of props to hand! More importantly, the shoot was more than simply taking photographs! David explained what a client will likely be looking for from a model within a commercial environment, and provided advice for the many different paths open to anyone getting into the industry. Calm and concise, he helped me put any nerves at ease and build confidence. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with David and definitely would do so again. Highly recommended!
David is not for the faint hearted he a very direct and is a no nonsense photographer...I believe he gave me valuable insight into the industry and made me look at my work and myself in a whole new light...
I would whole heartedly reccommend David. He is a very professional and experienced photographer. The amount I learnt about the industry in the few hours I was with him is staggering. He is patient and understanding and makes you feel completely at ease. A must for anyone new to modelling that wants to learn a bit more. Thank you David.
David was the greatest asset of my modeling 'career'. He showed me the all important ropes and exactly what to expect. He is so easy to talk to and has a laugh yet at the same time being very imformative
IF YOU ARE A NEW MODEL THIS GUY IS FOR YOU!!!
Had such a great time and will probably see you again some time. Ill be keeping in touch. Thanks again David, your a star!
i had a shoot with Dave today and i have to say I'm very impressed i was there all day well 8hrs to be precise and loved every minute of it! what i like about Dave the most is his honesty he tells you as it is, he gives you a really big understanding of the modeling industry as well as pros and cons.i went down to Leicester with most of my wardrobe and only wore 1 item because Dave has such different and crazy outfits you just want to be in them costumes instead well i did and it was brilliant :p thanks so my dave and i will be down again soon. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!
Had a great shoot today with Dave. A unique photographer who isn't afraid to tell it how it is, and gave me a great insight into not only the shoot, but the whole modelling industry. It was great to meet someone who was able to analyse and bring life to my portfolio. Some of the shots we tried I wouldn't have thought to do, and I owe it to Dave for his creative ideas and whacky outfits. I would suggest that anyone wishing to add something unique to their profile, book a shoot with Dave as he has some great ideas. Hope to work with him in the future. Thanks again!
Had an amazing shoot with David. The stuff i learnt about distance, expressions and the modelling industry was incredibly valuble. I would definately reccomend to any model as im sure there is a lot you could learn. Had all the photos the next day and was lucky enough to have another shoot booked.
My second shoot with WilliamDavid, was great fun and felt a lot more natural this time round. WilliamDavid offers a lot of free useful advice aswell as tries to take you out of your comfort zone (without being pushy) to expand your horizons, I would highly reccomend to everyone! Was really happy with how it went and look forward to working with him again in the future.
working with Willaim David was a pleasure.
He made me feel comfortable with myself and during the session.
I very much enyed the time spent doing the photoshoot as Dave helped me take on different persona's to achieve a different style. we got a variety of excellent images that have helped build up my portfolio and i am very grateful for him taking the time to help me with my portfolio.
Dave is clearly dedicated to his work as he can see the potential people have and his attitude to working with inexperienced models is amazing.
It would be great to work with him again sometime in the near future.
Had an experience shoot with David yesterday at his studio in leicster, as soon as i arrived i was offered a drink and a seat while he explained everything to me.
The shoot went really well and he taught me alot!
Cant wait too shoot with him again :)
Thanks David, Dec
I went for a shoot up at Davids studio in Leicster with my boyfriend on Sunday and would have to say that even though it was a last minuite decision the shoot worked out perfectly and got some amazing images! I would highly recommend David to everyone. Even if you are new to modelling as he gives perfect directions and will teach you alot! :)
Look forward to working together again
Thanks, Keely :)
Had a shoot the other day with William. He was always able to support and help me through the day and able to teach me well. All whist working as hard as possible throught the whole day, even with the many issues that where put in front of us. working together we got a good result.
David is a pleasure to work with, informative, helpfull and knows how to use peoples strengths to get the best results. I would recommend him to all models, starting out or experianced. Really looking forward to our next shoot!

Depends on assignment
WilliamDavid is an unashamed "old fashioned" photographer - whose training in film has been extended into digital. Trained in professional photography in the late 70's. Major work is mainly with actors and performers to build up image confidence and range. Being on Purestorm is an interesting sideline. However happy to work with models starting out, and specializing in the more unusual area of male shoots - subject to them being professional in attitude and arrangements - even if it's "just for fun". Fun is a major aspect of the experience shoot - hard work maybe - but fun too! Most shoots take place within a Leicester Theatre Company/Arts Centre location, and yes images often do have a touch of theatre and performance to them. But early shoots are very technique biased - so that those new infront of the camera can have confidence [ and deliver] results to any photographer, not just WilliamDavid! WilliamDavid does not shoot adult work. Although TF shoots are now strictly limited - they may still be offered on occassion - but at a time to suit Wil.D. If interested in taking part in a shoot feel free to get in touch to explore possible options.
About:- I press the button - you do the rest! This promotional slogan has been taken by some as a statement rather than a advertising slogan! I could ofcourse put "I don't just press the button but do this do that..." but I won't because no matter how good the photographer is the subject comes first! My job is help someone find what they can achieve image wise, and yes that is a bit more than pressing the button - but it's still a good slogan!! Wishing you the very best here on Purestorm.
