Well, it's about time you lot got a slice of the pie !

I want to thank Victoria Howard for a wonderful job the last two times I have worked with her, the recent images I have are down right kick ass! And I am so proud of them that I have already written an article for Alternative Fashion Magazine on bodypainting for the autumn issue featuring her work.

I have always admired the patience of make up artists, body painters and SFX artists, and I really urge photographers and models to hire them, on PAID work. 

I had a long discussion with Victoria on how tfcd is really destroying and undercutting work of people who have trained for years in their field and therefore putting people out of buisness.

So thanks Mua's you make my job a hell of a lot easier, and a hell of a lot better, money well spent.

I was just browsing pure storm and came across this!

Thank you Katie, You know how much I enjoyed that shoot, and I totally agree with Pyretta Blaze.

I have made the decision not to do TFP anymore unless it will really benefit my portfolio!

What do you think to the bodypaint above!

Agreed, I love working with a MUA, the collaborations result in some really good images. I think I have included each MUA I have worked with on there.  emoticon

As a make up artist, Claire shipman did some great work with me,
Also Cherrylips , Mandy Lawrence, Mark Gannon, AwenSFX, Claire Harmer (did the make up on a load of my published work), and several other students that I have worked with from MM have all been great to work with.

There would be no good photography without our good MUA's yes, you are the blood and life behind the work.
Don;t give up though, good photographers show their appreciation in publications.

Keep pushing, keep going

I just wish I could afford an MUA *sniffle* Still, perhaps one day my photography will get to the stage where I can hire at will

I wouldn't shoot without a good makeup artist, and the ones I work with (you know who you are) are incredible!
