I have just spent a couple of wonderfully productive days shooting in the gorgeous Irish countryside with possibly the nicest gentleman any model could have the pleasure of working with. Des and his makeup artist were simply fantastic - the creative harmony between all involved just kept the lovely results coming time and time again! The places and locations in which we explored during this time were utterly magnificent and Des has unquestionably the best genius knowledge of where to capture that beautiful art nude look; further still she takes every last measure to tweak every moment to perfection. Des works with a considerable amount of care to ensure he achieves something special from each set; certainly a photographer who holds an outstanding pre-shot vision and connection with the fine details which nail the composition in an image. His professionalism and divine courtesy is second-to-none, from the very start of our communications I received competent details and information with regards to the plans - all of which continued throughout the stay as we bounced innovative inspiration back and forth in-between actively shooting. I have no doubts that any model will be in for a most enjoyable period shooting with Des. He is kind, fun-hearted and with sublime generosity - he put me up during my stay and gave constant respectful consideration from start to finish. I would struggle to find the words to describe just how much I recommend him... sky high, with immaculate distinction, to incredible heights? I could go on and on! Smile I would certainly look forward to arranging a second shoot with Des. Keira

Des is a fantastic photographer and a very nice man. I stayed with him in Dublin for two days and even though I had tonsilitis and ended up having to stay in bed for most of the time, he didn't make me feel bad about it and was very kind. In fact, in the short time we spent shooting we got some brilliant images and I got to see the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen. The fact that Des took one of my prettiest portraits of me while I was actually in the most pain I've ever been in is a testament to his amazing photography skills! He has a great eye for bright, sharp beauty.

First of all, if I could welcome you, and thank you for viewing my Purestorm Portfolio.

I’m in my mid 60’s now, and for a significant part of my life have been a collector of art – mainly oil and watercolour paintings. It consists mainly of works by Irish artists, although it does include some by contemporary French, US and UK artists. About a dozen of the paintings are female nudes – I’ve always admired the female form, and greatly appreciate artists who can portray that well.

Over my lifetime, I’ve been in and out of photography. In 2002/2003, motivated I suppose by the art collection, I slowly started into artistic nude photography. I do this only as a leisure time activity – for relaxation - experimenting with photographic techniques, and with lighting set-ups/configurations. Basically, I set out to present female models as beautifully as I can – portraying their inner beauty as well as the external. It’s all quite captivating, with the basic focus being on artistic and fine art nude, both in colour and black/white. My first love is location photography, though I do retire to the studio in the winter, particularly during the rather inclement Irish winter. An important point, I never shoot “adult style” and have no interest in that.

I don’t publish my pictures, or sell them, as I’ve no great interest in that. I do however gain great satisfaction from making something work. I don’t do TFP/TFCD, preferring to pay models – as I can then process images in my own time. That can take a while, as I photograph digitally, using the RAW format.

Thanks also to you for taking the time to visit this page. I hope you found something of interest.

Regarding References, i have not asked any of the models with whom i've worked with to submit references here. Rather, i've linked the images to the model's portfolio -- for all eight images. Anyone planning to work with me is welcome to ask any of these models for their honest view. If that is not enough to assure you then we probably should not be thinking of working together.
