I have worked with Arif multiple times since first shooting with him, and what can I say? I simply adore his work - I'm a genuine fan of his photography, and for someone who has only been photographing for a relatively short amount of time, this man has bags of talent, a natural skill and impeccable eye for detail.
His retouching skills are fabulous, he creates something I honestly believe is true art. He is a delight to work with and a good friend to me, I can't fault him, he's a wonderful person and a great photographer.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of working with Arif. He's talented, professional and fun, and I am super confident to recommend him already as the pre-edits are awesome.
His lighting skills are brilliant, and he takes his time getting the shots.
Highly recommended from me.
I had the pleasure of working with Arif and I would jump at the chance to do so again. Despite the killer heat on our shoot, I have received some magnificent edits that I look forward to plastering all over the interwebs.
Worked with Arif twice now and both times we had a great day despite having weather issues
Arif is friendly, easy to get along with and very professional. he made me feel at ease whilst producing some great images.
Cant wait for our third shoot
I would highly recommend Arif to any model, and any other photographers, wishing to collaborate with him.
Arif is enthusiastic, friendly, and a lovely person to work with.
He made me feel extremely comfortable and we produced some fantastic images.
I can't wait to work with him again :)
Arif was an absolute delight to work with, and without a doubt one of the best photographers I have had the pleasure of meeting.
He arrived punctually, after driving 3.5 hours to come and work with me at my home. We spoke for the first part of the shoot, which made me feel completely at ease and comfortable.
He came prepared for all situations with plenty of camera equipment in case we got to shoot outside, and didn't complain once about my box-like flat and having to haul everything around from room to room :-)
During the shoot, Arif was very polite, gave good direction, and knows what makes a good photo. Very relaxed and at ease with being behind the lens.
Definitely a photographer to work with if you get the chance. Cannot wait to see the photos we shot today, and work with him again in the future.
Worked with Arif at my home and really enjoyed it. He is very easy to get along with and had some great ideas.
Got some great lighting set ups too.
Would definitely recommend to anyone and already have my next shoot with him planned :)
what a pleasure it was working for you!
Not only did you take the time to ensure the light was spot on inorder to get some great shots in tricky conditions, you made the time fly with fun and articulate conversation. Dab hand with the camera, comic genious, fountain of unusual knowledge and big oversized coat at the ready when warmth required!!!! When work is required, I'd be happy to model again ;-)
Had first shoot with arif today very nice fella very friendly made me feel very comfortable was a short shoot but think there was some good images there id recommend him 100% thanks arif hope to shoot again soon and when the weather is better lol :)
Arif is a pleasure to work with, hes creative and loves his work which shows through on the shoot. Arif braught out the best in me which only proves that i felt totaly comfortable and had fun on the shoot. We will definately be working together again.
A brilliant shoot with Arif, who was as ever a professional and enthusiastic photographer. A fun guy to work with who creates wonderful images to a high quality. Would definitely recommend to other models.

Paid work or TFP/CD
I am interested in all genres of portrait photography including fashion, glamour, gothic, art. I also love the vintage 1940s and 1950s style look as well older Victorian/Georgian styles. I love shooting outdoors and am open to more "out there" fantasy and surreal concepts too. Although I have my own speedlights and soft boxes my very favourite thing is natural light. I just love the quality it gives to photos and the way it wraps around a person's face and body.
I'm looking to gain more experience and build up my portfolio by working with models/stylists/MUAs on a time for print basis. If you like my work and would like to collaborate please get in touch. If you have any friends or family who are models that you think would like to work with me feel free to pass on my details.
Feel free to comment on my photos here
Thanks for stopping by,
Experience I'm a photography student currently studying in the North East. I am looking to expand my portfolio and work with models on a TFP basis. I have done about 15 photoshoots now and am still learning. Split abou 50:50 between location and studio/home shoots. I am a hard worker and never stop until both myself and the model are 100% happy with the shoot. I am able to shoot indoors or outdoors and have my own transport so can easily travel
A consummate professional. Rachelle needs very little direction and improvises superb expressions and poses without even needing to think about it. Beautiful, with a perfect figure and very easy to get along with. Highly recommended.
