I sat for Carl's camera club today,
I had a great laugh and Carl and all his ''students''(LOL) were welcoming and easy to work with!
Carl is easy to get on with and easy to work with!
His choice of accessories made me smile!
I shot with Carl on 16.02.11 and look forward to doing so again. He was well-prepared, gave good direction and was friendly and professional throughout. His comms are also excellent. I would happily recommend him to any model!

I was called in to Model for Carl's camera club at extremely late notice, and upon arrival was greeted warmly, treated respectfully, and given clear direction, so no time was wasted. Carl's talent and enthusiasm are evident in his style, and his creativity is sure to rub off on those he is tutoring. I had a fantastic time, and would love to have the honor of working for Carl again, (with a little more notice next time, thanks!)
Last week we arranged a group shoot with carlbatson and everything went just great. The studio was nice, the atmosphere relaxed and professional. we didnt waste any time and i hope that everybody was satisfied. Would totally recommend ! It was really a big pleasure to work together...
I did a last minute camera club evening for Carl. He is a great photographer and a genuinely nice person to know. He knows what he wants out of a shoot, knows what to do to get it and doesn't waste any time in doing so! He made me feel completely comfortable and the engery he gives off will keep anyone wanting to model for him for hours on end. Completely unlike anything I've experienced before in a shoot and quite possibly one of the nicest ones I've had to date!
I really hope to work with him again!!
Carl brought me in to sit for a group shoot/session on March 25. All the communications were great, and he was very professional throughout. He'd organized and was coaching the group session- it was all very well thought out, not too typical of photography groups, which are usually a bit of a free-for-all! I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot, and would be more than happy to model for Carl again, for group projects or his own portfolio work.
Had a shoot with Carl 23rd March. Good humoured, and with an exceptionally clear idea of the image he wants. It was a pleasure to work with a photographer with such focus. When he says it's one shot and it won't take long, you'd better believe it. Good communication meant that I knew exactly what image we were working towards as well, a definite bonus and something of a novelty. I would definitely recommend Carl as someone to work with.
I had my first ever photo shoot with Carl Batson at the end of February. As I am new at this I was obviously nervous. I had no need to be, because of Carls confidence and experience he put me completly at ease and made me feel very calm as the shoot was at my home, I felt very comfortable and was able to be myself. Carl kept in contact with me via phone and email to communicate ideas so we had a clear idea of what we both wanted to achieve. Communication throughout the shoot was fantastic and he allowed me full input. I wasn't stuck for a minute not knowing what I should be doing. He was great at giving me direction and gave me the freedom to be as creative as I liked. Carl has a very powerful and creative mind and most of his work has a meaning behind it, which I love. Carl has a few more images planned for me which I am very excited about sitting for which also have meaning behind them. Carl doesn't waste any time and is great at getting a picture in one shot.
As an inexperienced model I would reccomend Carl to anyone, thank you for taking time to read this and enjoy working with Carl, I did.
Had a second shoot with Carl at the end of March. We were working toward one specific shot which we managed to achieve very quickly. Once again, I was really happy working towards a specific shot and was very happy with the resulting image.
We decided to have some fun with the remaining time and decided to shoot some tongue in cheek images with England pants, befitting the time of year.
I really enjoyed myself and love working with Carl.
Sat for Carl again on 29th March. Had some great pictures taken with another model and also some individual artistic shots. I was more than happy with the results and also that we managed to incorporate a rose (my favourite flower). I love the picture so much I have it as my screen saver at home.
