I shot with Hugh back in February now and he was by far one of my favourite photographers. He gave me great direction Which I needed and new what worked well and what did not. I had lots of fun especially when we went outdoors to a forest local to him to shoot there too. Great day and 100% recommended

I had a shoot with Hugh today, and despite the miserable, rainy weather - I had a lovely shoot! Hugh is so friendly and chatty, he was like a little ray of sunshine. He was so organised, he even brought along some wellingtons for me which was so kind! The shoot was short, but I felt a lot was achieved. Highly recommended!!

Had a great shoot with Hugh. He kept in regular contact with me while I was travelling to him, making me feel reassured about our shoot. He made me feel very welcomed in his home, and makes a pretty decent brew :-) The shoot was fantastic - Hugh knows what makes a great photo, and gave really good direction. His home studio was also very impressive, giving amazing results! Hugh is a pleasure to work with, and I urge anyone who has the chance to work with this photographer :-)

Had the pleasure of working with Hugh for the first time last night. I don't know why we took so long to arrange a shoot! He was on time, professional and very easy to work with.

Had a great shoot with Hugh, he was loads of fun and up for anything - including running into a river to try to retrieve my missing flip flop! Would happily work with again and highly recommend to other models.
Thanks, Hugh!

I shot with Hugh last week, I got some great pictures from it and the shoot was really good fun!Hugh's a great guy and you should definately work with him if you get the chance! Snap him up quickly!!!!

A big thank-you to Designerhugh who has kick started my modelling career, without his help i wouldn't be where I am today.

Hugh was a great, easy guy to work with, and understanding when I had problems getting there. He made me feel very comfortable and we got on really well, I would reccomend working with him!

"Hugh was a pleasure to work with. The shoot despite it being a bit too cold it was great. Before the shoot we discussed in great detail what it would entail and what we both hoped to achieve. I enjoyed the location and felt very comfortable working with Hugh,
I would recommend him to any model."

On this site alone I have over 71 positive refs

IMPORTANT: Please take time to read Terms & conditions regarding shooting with me as outlined below.

Terms & Conditions of Shoot

1 You must be over 18

2 All paid work is for PUBLICATION (magazine or web, please note I do not decide on usage or editorial control or magazines images are published in) and two forms of ID are required one must be passport (second ID photo driving license or birth certificate) please note I am unable to shoot without these present, if you turn up without ID shoot will be cancelled and you will not be paid.

3 I do not shoot with chaperones present, if you turn up with a chaperone or boyfriend (without prior agreement) shoot will be cancelled and you will not be paid. I am happy to meet chaperones etc before shoot but if you feel you need a chaperone present please work with another photographer, my references and track record reflect my professional working arrangement between model & photographer which is based on trust and discretion. In the past I have allowed chaperones, boyfriends present unfortunately they have not behaved in appropriate manner. I will not discuss shoots with chaperone or boyfriend, including terms & conditions and payments.

4 Payment is by cheque or Bacs payment at time of shoot, no other payment will be made at later date.

5 You will be required to sign model release, model release is legally binding document and is requirement of all my shoots (my release has been drawn up by a solicitor and is legally binding)

6 As you are accepting payment it is up to you to declare any earning to the IR your tax and national insurance is not my business. Again many models are happy to be paid but not published just remember that the photographs belong to the photographer not the model, and you are paid to model thats it.

7 I shoot with full public liability insurance

8 Please note I do not supply images from paid shoots although I may be able to email you a couple of images. I am more than happy to shoot your portfolio but this is when you pay me.

9 I am not available for TFP but I am available for commissioned porfolios

10 Please note I have heard all the excuses from models changing their mind about publication (ie I have a new boyfriend, I have change my mind, what about if my family sees the pics etc etc) if you model for a photographer and get paid expect to be published, although this is no guarantee either that you will. Please note I won't discuss shoots with third parties such as your boyfriend or other photographers. I am not unreasonable either if you ask me not to publish at a later date provided MODEL FEE is returned and PAYMENT is made for my time and other expenses cover I may remove pictures from publication but this is at my discretion and is more likely to happen if I am asked in a friendly way. ie demanding pictures removed will get you no where. Remember you are over 18 and an adult it was your choice to model no one else. Discuss with other photographers will get you no where also, the contract is between photographer and model. The publishers I work have there own legal teams and again will not be moved.

10 Abusive emails or texts will be blocked.

livvylangdon (cancelled 15 mins before shoot)

Internationally published in both magazines and web. Photographed top models including: new face of M&S Katie Piper (front cover) out standing model to work with sets the bench mark, Tavia Spizer (Australian actress), Charlie Fox, Alyssa Leigh, Ashleigh Mckenzie, Jessica Wood, Ashlea Louise, Lovebird, Kaz B and Amelia Alden, Natasha Kalashnikova (front cover) Danielle Maye (magazine published). My work is internationally published on many front covers and magazines.

More than happy to work with new models and very laid back and easy to work with I have been told. Many models have told me that after working with me they have become more comfortable with their body and more confident. I will always try and bring out the best in a model and you will be treated with total respect, I even make coffee and will supply you with biscuits.

Many models I invite back for second & third shoots.

Please note all work is for publication.
