Me and Des had arranged to work together some time ago but due to me starting a full time job we had to change the date of our shoot. I really appreciated that Des was patience as I re-arranged pretty much all of my shoot diary. Communication was spot on before the shoot and during. On top of having a great eye for detail and making sure I was comfortable throughout, Des is hard working, down to earth and made both me and my Mrs very welcome in his home. Looking forward to seeing the final images and working together again very soon. Thanks again Des!

First I and my chaperone met up with Des, and spoke about things we were going to do the following day, also to get to know eachother. On the 1st sep 2012 I had the shoot with Des. I had an absolutelly amazing time, and learn so many things reguarding modelling, that are continuing to help me. He is such a great host offering us drinks and amazing service. Couldnt have felt any more comfortable and happy. The photos were amazing, and I would definitelly recommend him, as he has bizarre ideas, which I also tried such as bondage. Never thought Id tried it, But I absolutelly loved it!!! Thank you so much Des. Hopefully there are more shoots coming!!

I had a good pre shoot meeting with Des and his partner a couple of weeks before my shoot. I had an amazing shoot at his home in Leeds. He was very easy to work with. I had a huge variety of clothes to choose from as he has his own wardrobe. He was very helpful and gave good direction. I am looking forward to working with Des in the near future

I worked with Des on a bondage shoot from a hotel room in Leeds on my birthday. He was professional, pleasant and respectful of me and really considerate of how I was feeling - as bondage can be uncomfortable at times. I didn't have a chaperone with me but Des was fantastic. I'd definitely recommend him to other models, I look forward to seeing the results

Had my first shoot with Des today. Des has a great selection of clothing and shoes for you to model. Makes a nice change not having to decide what clothes to take to a shoot. Des has great ideas of how he wants you to pose and im looking forward to seeing the final result. Lily

Experience
** AVAILABILITY ** WEEKENDS all day and WEEKDAY EVENINGS starting from 7pm.

I am taking on new TFCD projects, but have limited shoot opportunities.
But due to Full-Time employment I am only available for shoots at WEEKENDS and most WEEKDAY EVENINGS starting from 7pm.
Friday Evening best as I can shoot until very late.
===
** NEWBIE MODELS? do you want a PORTFOLIO? **
If you want to work with me to create images for your portfolio, my reasonable rates are negotiable, make me an offer.
But if I think you look like you have potential I may do TFCD. :-).
===
I have over 13 years experience of working with models; who can all supply positive references, please also see me on Net-model (20 references) and Purpleport where I have many, many more references too.
Check at the bottom of my portfolio for the long list of some other models I have worked with.

____ POTENTIAL MODELLING WORK ______

I would like to be able to establish good working relationships with a few local, regular, reliable, suitable models, and perhaps some MUAs, who want to Collaborate / Syndicate to create images for potential websites.

Ideas for shoots will be very broad & 'flexible', I can 'tailor' them to suit any model's limitations and experience.
The genre I focus on mostly is 'Alternative' or 'Sub/Dom' and there are many variations.
It can involve a wide range of things - Dressing Up: PVC, Leather, Latex, Gothic, Lingerie, Boots, Stiletto Heels, etc. Roleplay: Damsel in Distress, Captive Heroines, etc.

Bondage has been used in many of my fetish, fun and fantasy shoots previously, but always with the full consent of the models and I always make sure the models are relaxed and comfortable.
The safety, comfort & well-being of my models is foremost ... a happy model, is a good model.

I always encourage models to be chaperoned to meetings & shoots, or at least to arrange meetings to suit them.
Developing mutual trust and a good friendly relationship is vitally important.

Contact me here, ask for my email address, and let's chat about working together on some super photos. :-)

_____ LOADS OF CLOTHING FOR MODELS TO WEAR ______

I have a wide range of Fetish, PVC, corsets, skirts, dresses, lingerie and many, many other types of sexy clothing for models between size 8 and 14. (Many items suited to 'curvy' Size 10+).
Shoes size 3 - 8.
BUT as you can see from the few examples on my portfolio, I do shoot other styles besides 'Alternative'.
I offer a wide range of various STYLES/GENRE TO SUIT MODELS' REQUIREMENTS.

== IMPORTANT ==
** Any models who contact me need to be as completely reliable and dedicated as I am.
I have had a lot of 'NO SHOW' TIME WASTING models during my years of shooting live subjects.
So if you are interested in working with me please ensure that you will be able to attend any meetings or shoots that we arrange. **

ANY MODELS WHO DON'T ATTEND A BOOKED MEETING OR SHOOT WILL BE GIVEN A 'NEGATIVE' REVIEW ON THEIR PROFILE PAGE.

All models with whom I work are treated professionally and with friendliness and courtesy.
I expect to be treated similarly. I try to ensure that models feel as comfortable, at ease and as safe as possible at all times.

CHAPERONES
I will allow chaperones present on a shoot, but they will need to be well-behaved and not be a disruptive influence.
Chaperones can sometimes make a model feel self-conscious therefore inhibiting their performance, so please assure me that your chaperone will not interfere with the flow of the shoot by distracting either of us.

I can understand how some models may have security issues, but I also have to be cautious.
It may be preferable that someone brings you, then after being satisfied that everything is above board; they leave and pick you up later.
I don't mind if you wish to text/phone someone to let them know that you're safe and well during the natural breaks in shooting.
===================

TFCD? and Time for CLOTHING? - I will do TFCD, etc. if I think we have the potential to produce great images and give us something to enhance our portfolios.
If we really work well together, I have a surplus of fabulously sexy clothing and lots of superb shoes to give away FREE as well as images on a CD, in return for Time for Shoots.

I have worked at studios in Leeds, Bradford and Keighley, but much rather work either at my home studio, at the model's home or at any other suitable locations.
