I had the pleasure of working with Diego which was an excellent experience. He took some fantastic photographs and has a great studio set up. He knew how to capture a good photograph and modified them afterwards so that they looked even better. He provided free drinks, has a lovely home/atmosphere to work in and was easy to talk to in general. He was very efficient and gave me a copy of the photographs within 24 hours of the shoot. I Would definitely recommend him to others.

Had a brilliant shoot with Diego earlier today, I really enjoyed it and can not wait to see the results. The spacious studio is layed out really well and in a great location with a beautiful lake beside it. Most importantly Diego is kind, polite and very professional, he is good at what he does, you only have to view his profile to see the quality of his work. I will look forward to working with him again. Thank You :)

Diego is the ideal photographer that every model dreams they could work with. He down-to-earth, and very professional. Infact his professional approach to things was very impressive, and so was his willingness to try new things and listen to ideas that I myself had too. He gave clear directions at what he wanted for each shoot, and he was also was thoughtful of basic needs too, such as keeping the studio warm, and asking if I needed a break between shoots. He was also kind enough to buy me a sandwich when we had a break …free of charge : ) Yes, I would recommend Diego to any model, at any occasion.

Diego was a fantastic photographer, his set up was brilliant and in a good location for outdoor shoots! We got some epic shots and experimented with a variety of different styles! Recommended 100%

Even though I wasn't modelling for Diego, I was there for my friend's shoot yesterday. Diego is a very nice, friendly and chatty photographer. He allowed me to help with all his lighting equipment and some of the props during the session. He made me feel included in the session even though I wasn't meant to be and was very kind and genorous by constantly offering me and Natalie cups of tea... He even went to the shop and bought us some sandwiches of his own accord during the session! I would definitely reccommend Diego as a photographer and would love to work with him in the future. :) xx

Felt comfortable and welcome as soon as i arrived, despite running a little late. Derek understood my situation with the sat nav! The shoot was absolutely fantastic and i thought the props available were really good for communicating the overall intended style. Derek was really friendly but still very professional. He made me feel extremely comfortable during the shoot and encouraged me throughout by giving me ideas and direction, but also letting me experiment too. He's a lovely gentleman and knows his proffesion well. Hope to work with him again in the near future! Definately recommended!

Up to nude
Will Accept:
Depends on assignment
All aspects of portrait photography.....Indoor and studio shots or outdoors. The work I have done so far has been varied using a variety of props and scenarios both in and around a studio .

I enjoy working with models to get the best out of them but also welcome their input into a shoot. All shoots should be great fun and its ideal to hear models own ideas. I am flexible to new scenarios and will generally shoot to model suggestions.

Originally trained in Fine Art and later worked in Graphic Design, Education and Training
Over the last few years I have been developing a studio. This is a large space with lighting, backdrops and changing area. Refreshments are on hand with cafe and toilets adjacent. Excellent parking. Superb location views also act as an outside backdrop for photoshoots…including a Victorian bridge and boats etc
All aspects of shooting the human form can be included in a session with many props available, but feel free to bring your own. I am also interested in photographing to themes - including Pin Up, Burlesque, Goths, Retro, Victorian and Steampunk as well as quality portraits and full length body shots of both females and males. This includes fashion glamour and alternative style photography.
Experienced models most welcome.

About the shoots:
I will respond to requests for TFP via email, but models must phone me a week before a shoot, the day before a shoot and the morning of the shoot. My time is very precious to me. No shows for no reason will get appropriate feedback
The first shoot with a model is normally of about 2-3 hours duration (can be longer for those coming some distance) and is intended to explore visual possibilities with individuals, make test shots and to suggest or make recommendations for subsequent photo shoots.
As a photographer I am looking at models to try and "capture the moment"...... that something special that tells the viewer a visual story about the individual being photographed
The second shoot is longer and may involve many changes of clothing, make up, props or differing locations. Output will mainly be to CD or uploaded so the model can download them personally.
Photo shoots to be good involve a lot of trust on both sides and are normally 1-2-1 granny sitting in the corner making "helpful" comments is a sure fired way of ruining potentially excellent results. Service will be professional at all times, as will the turn around for either viewing the results or output to websites or print portfolios.

I look forward to hearing from you and having a really enjoyable & creative shoot
