Had a fabulous shoot at Ians studio for a training session he had organised for some photographers. He was proffessional at all times and we had great comms before and during the shoot. He's very clear on his aims for the shoot so you have no doubts on what to bring and what genre to be expected to shoot on. I would be more than happy to provide references to other models and I am more than happy to work with Ian again in the future which is a good job as he already re-booked me for another date in dec! :) Thanks for a fab shoot Ian

I worked with Ian at his studio this evening, he sent me all relervant e-mails before the shoot with clear instructions of what I needed to bring along. He offered me a drink and talked me though everything that would happen at the shoot, this made me feel nice and relaxed and made the shoot all the more enjoyable. He is great fun to work with and I would jump at the oppertunity to work with him again. xxx

I modelled for Ian's Dance studio event and was extremely impressed with his professional approach both before and during the shoot. He gave clear direction as to the styles he was looking for which made it easy for me to prepare. He is a great host and the studio space is fantastic. Ian has great ideas for images and works hard to achieve them. Thanks again Ian. A highly recommended photographer, don't hesitate to work with him! :)

Recently worked with Ian at a group shoot in his studio. Excellent host to both photographers and myself. Although then time he had to shoot with me was brief, as priority went to the other photographers Ian knew exactly the shots he wanted to try giving excellent direction and also allowing for my creative imput. Highly recommended and hope to work with again, hopefully for longer next time.

I worked with Ian for the first time yesterday, & he's a fantastic photographer who I would recommend without hesitation. From the outset, his professionalism shone through. The process of getting the shoot arranged, was very organised, so that we both knew what was expected. This is a BIG DEAL in my book!!! The ideas that he came up with for the shoot were fantastic, & from what I have seen so far of the shots we got from the day, I am really pleased. He's a brilliant photographer & I can't wait to see the final edits. Thanks for a great shoot Ian & I'm already looking forward to working with you again in a few weeks time. Elise Summers

Up to nude
Some Experience
Will Accept:
Paid work or TFP/CD
Stock Photo
Print Magazine
Parts Modeling
Hair Modeling
I offer both TFCD shoots and paid assignments.

Please click on the "Casting Calls" link at the top of this page. Or follow this link to see a list of current casting calls.

TFCD and Test Shoots
I am happy to work with models on a TFCD basis if the model can enhance or add something new to my portfolio. I will also consider TFCD shoots if I am able so shoot some stock images for submission to photo libraries as part of the shoot.

Most of the models I shoot with on a TFCD basis usually go on to get paid work in the form of working at one of the regular events or workshops at my studio.

Paid Shoots
I also book models for paid shoots. I *ALWAYS* give priority to suitable models who have previously worked with me on a TFCD basis. The best way to get a paid shoot from me is to be a model who has worked with me on a TFCD shoot first.

Of course, alternatively you could consider paying me to shoot images for you portfolio! (Shock horror!) I'll even consider part payment where I will reduce my fee in return for a signed model release form and the opportunity to get a some stock images during the shoot.

For your information here is my policy on the much debates subject of chaperones: The ONLY valid reason for a model requiring a chaperone is to ensure their safety. If I am working with a model by myself and the model wishes to bring a chaperone then I have no problem with it providing the chaperone behaves and does not interfere with the shoot. The desire for some models to have a chaperone when working with an unknown photographer at nude or topless levels is entirely understandable.

When I book a model for a workshop or an event at the studio, however, I DO NOT PERMIT chaperones. If a chaperone was present at the shoot, it would effectively be saying to the paying attendees of the event that the model doesn't trust me as the studio owner to ensure her safety.

PLEASE NOTE: I am a full-time professional photographer, however working with models is only one aspect of my photographic work. Please judge my level of expertise in this area by the standard of the images in my portfolio.

I have had a number of model images published. These include:
Rayzor and SK in the Daily Star, February 2009. (It's the "Office Romance" image in my profile), The "bills bills" image of model Keza was published in the Daily Telegraph 16th June 2009. Images of models "Mike", xnatp and "Randi and Blaze" have also been published. For a full list of published images see:

Additionally I have had literally hundreds of general and travel stock photographs published via photographic libraries. Many in UK national newspapers, magazines, travel brouchures, and in educational books.

I have also written for and been published (words and photos) in Practical Photography, Cheshire Life, Royal Photographic Society magazine and others.

Additional example photographs from model shoots can be seen on my website:

Excellent communications prior to the shoot. On the day, despite being in pain from toothache, Shali crossed Manchester on public transport to attend a TFCD shoot. That shows how committed and reliable she is. Even though her tooth hurt her every time she smiled she just kept on smiling for the benefit of the shoot.
Had a great shoot with Emma today (6th Nov 08), good communications before hand, arrived with a good selection of outfits. Emma worked well and became increasingly confident in front of the camera. We got some good photos. I hope to work with her again. Recommended.

Excellent communications before the shoot (one of the best at pre shoot communications), arrived on time with a good range of outfits suitable for the themes we had discussed.

I am pleased with the results and would be happy to work with Amie again. Recommended.
