Yay, I finally got to meet and shoot with Paul! And it was bloody awesome.
Paul ever so kindly let me crash at his for a night on my recent little jaunt down South. Not only that, but he let me borrow his camera and showed me how to work it for shooting the lovely Ella, fed me, let me pester his cats and we also managed to fit in shooting some of our own ideas together too.
Where he lives is ridiculously cool for shooting at, in fact I would quite happily move in there it's that awesome. He has lovely fluffy cats that you'll want to take home, he even has a boat! Seriously, if you get the chance to work with Paul, then grab it because it's definitely worth it.
I'm so happy with how my trip turned out, and that Paul was able to shoot me in a different way to how I've been shot before; but yet we still managed to make it quirky and creative. His ideas are great and he's a VERY talented photographer and cool person. Oh, and he baked me my own cake! I'm stuffing my face with it as I write this. NOM! :-)
Thank you Paul!
I’ve had two shoots with Paul (one being my very first!) and can only say he is the best at what he’s does – you need only look at the quality of his profile to see this. On top of amazing images, Paul is an absolute gem of guy! He made me comfortable and had me laughing all day on both shoots. He’s direction for each shot made sure we got the very best of each imagine, we tried loads of different things and he is full of ideas! Easily could have shot all day long - only called it a day because of light! This man is a genius highly recommend ****
Worked with Paul earlier today... Was a great pleasure!
He's easy to get on with, great idea's, and very professional. Such a genuinely lovely guy!
Highly recommended and hope to work with him again in the near future :-)
Thanks again Paul! ;-)
I have had a few shoots with Paul now and i absolutely love working with him! I find him very easy to get on with and very professional. I admire the time, effort and imagination he puts into his sets and photos. I would love to work with Paul again and would definitely recommend him!
I had such a good shoot with Paul, as soon as I arrived he allowed me to feel comfortable. As I am fairly new to this he sat down with me and gave the time to share advice based on how to progress etc. As well as enabling me to have various outfit changes he continuously took pictures whilst trying out different poses, layout etc until I was happy with the pictures. I would love to work with him again and would recommend him.
Had a fab shoot with Paul today. Although the weather was against us he came up with a great plan B and we had great fun. Great comms before the shoot, very easy to work with and overall a really enjoyable day. I would highly recommend working with Paul
I had the most wonderful shoot with Paul yesterday!
Though the shoot was rather last minute, I have wanted to work with Paul for a long time now. We tried some great ideas and the images look fantastic straight off camera. Really excited to see the finished results!
Paul was a joy to work with, was fun and friendly, made me feel very welcome and had a limitless supply of tea, which is always good in my books :P
If you get the chance to work with him, I highly reccomend you do!
Thank you very much Paul, I'll look forward to our next shoot! XX
Had another great shoot with Paul yesterday :-) he's quite modest about his photography but name a style you want to do and he can do it! Both this time and last time he's challenged me with great communication and direction, and got something different for my portfolio, and taken on my ideas fully and added his own style to them. I'd happily work with Paul all over again as there's no limit to ideas or possiblities. Totally completely 100% recommend, guaranteed great shots every time :-)

Had a great shoot with Paul today -can safely say highly recommend! He kindly picked me up from the station when I arrived earlier than I thought, and his versatility meant we tackled a wide range of different sets from beauty, to glamour to fashiony glamoury fashion. It was great to try something other than straight smiley glamour and give it some twist/edge and I also learned to pull some more aggressive faces and try something different for me. And there was a great constant tea/biscuit supply :-) totally recommended :-)
Paul was absolutely fantastic. He we welcoming, creative, throwing ideas left right and centre - I really loved working with him. We collaborated some ideas, together with the make-up artist to try and get the best of what little time we had; but I definitely think we got some good ones. Thanks again for a brilliant shoot! Hope to see you soon.
I finally had a shoot with Paul today and had a great time. We tried new ideas for both of us and I came away with my first lot of beauty head shots. It was a short but very productive and I had a lot of fun. Thanks Paul :)
I have just returned from a wonderful shoot with Inspired and I enjoyed every minute of it! The results of the shoot were better than I could have imagined and the images came straight from the camera already looking beautiful. I would highly recommend working with Paul - he was welcoming, laid back and a superbly talented photographer. Thank you, Paul. Allegra
Had a great shoot with Paul yesterday, he is such a laugh and we got some fantastic images. the time just flew by due to so many ideas and just having a good laugh. The images are exactly what i wanted and can't wait to see the finished results. would highly recommend working with Paulhe's a great tog and a lovely man :)
I had a photo shoot with Paul last week and he was awesome! It was my first proper shoot and he made me feel really relaxed. He took some fantastic pictures and does the best work with photoshop! He pays attention to the smallest detail, which is brilliant. Easy going & Great fun to work with - I would recommend Paul to anyone!!!
Thanks Paul :)
When Nudey met Paul.....It was like creative minds just linked to one another and a beam of inspiration just leapt into the studio/lav ;-) ....Honestly though Paul is a fantastic gentleman and I had a very fun shoot with him yesterday evening after meeting THEE CAT, See you soon matey when I am back for some more fun and creative shoots. Nudey :-)
I'd pestered Paul for another shoot even before I'd left the last one and he came up with a great concept. It took a hell of a lot of organising and sleepless nights to sort and I don't know many people that dedicated to an idea! Paul as ever is a fantastic person to work with, directing both myself and Ella to deliver exactly what was needed. Not sure what else I can say that I've not said in previous feedback - just again a real pleasure and I know all his hard work will be worth it!
1ST REFERENCE (FEB 2010) -
I recently had a shoot with Mr Inspired, and all i can say is wow. wow. wow!!!
We had originally planned a shoot a while back but we were snowed off, and upon planning this shoot, we were once again - almost - snowed off! But hark, we persisted, gave the weather a swift finger, and retreated to a nearby studio that a friend of mine owns... And i can honestly say that we had the most productive/fun/entertaining/creative shoot that we possibly could have.
Paul is a great, great guy and so easy to get on with, he not only has a great artistic/creative mind (that pays every attention to detail)... but he has the technical skill and ability to execute it beautifully. If you have the chance to work with him and turn it down you should be institutionalized. There, i said it.
Thank you once again 'weather god'... I cannot wait until next time! :D
2ND REFERENCE (JUNE 2010) -
I recently shot with Paul at his home studio and wow, wow, WOW once again!! :D
I think it's fair to say that weve both grown within our work since we last met, and what we achieved in the short time we had together was once again unbelievably awesome!
I have only met with Paul twice now - and i am trying to be careful not to 'gush' here - but it honestly feels as if ive known him years and years! Paul really is such a lovely guy, he'll have you in stitches and he is a great to talk to.. And i am very lucky to be able to call him a friend :)
It's been said before but ill say it again - Any models looking to work with Paul you simply MUST, he can pull off any genre, has an amazing kit, will give you sound advice, and you will have an amazing day to top it all off! And just look at the models he has already worked with on here alone - there's some BIG names there - so what the hell are you waiting for?!
Thank you so much again matey, i am once again in love with the results!
(Longest. Feedback. Ever?!) :P - Nope! Read on..
3RD REFERENCE (NOVEMBER 2010) -
Me and the beautiful MissG got together this time round infront of Pauls lens, on a concept that had been long talked about.. And my oh my was it worth the wait! Once again Paul was an absolute joy to work with, giving clear direction to make sure we get the shot, but with us all having such a laugh together in the process.. The day went too quickly really!!
Thank you so much again matey, until next time! :)
4TH REFERENCE (NOVEMBER 2011) -
I LOVE Paul. I LOVE his work. I LOVE his creativity. I LOVE his warmth and sense of humour. I ADORE his cat Ellie and her super stretching abilities. That will be all. If you have read this far then expect this feedback malarky to be at least DOUBLED in a years time! ;)

Back in action after a six month exile! I've been shooting models since October 2008 and am completely hooked! I don't think I have a particular style, or indeed a preference for what type of photography I do, as I like my work to be varied. I am constantly striving to improve, and I do enjoy a challenge! I will only undertake selective TF work if it will benefit both of our portfolios. So if you like my work and think we could help each other, please get in touch. I will always reply to any request one way or the other. The nearest tube to me is Hatton Cross (Picadilly line) and mainline is Shepperton Surrey (51 minutes from London Waterloo). I will happily collect you from either station. I also have family in Worthing so if you're south coast area I may well be in your area often
Experience A small portion of my income comes from my wedding photography which I run alongside my cake decorating business first established in 1991
