(Shoot 2nd January 2012) Had an amazing shoot with Marcus he has a great presence & was able to direct me clearly throughout, he booked a MUA who was great to work with & he had a great selection of outfits, costumes & accessories. I wanted to get some different looks & improve on my confidence, I was able to achieve both & can't wait to see the pictures. Very professional so highly recommend him & hope to work with him again soon.

I had a great shoot with Marcus on Saturday (26th). Marcus was very professional in the way he prepared all information of the shoot beforehand, from sending shoot sheets, clothing to take & even directions to the studio. He is a lovely man to work with, talk to & made it very easy for me to make myself at home! He even supplied breakfast :) This shoot went exceptionally well, not only working with Marcus but working alongside the other model & make up artist too! Thank you for a very enjoyable experience. I look forward to working with you again soon. x

I had my first shoot with Marcus yesterday (5th March) and I had so much fun, after not shooting for a while working Marcus made me realise how much I missed it! Marcus makes you feel at such ease and is great at bringing out your personality! He is good fun, super professional and full of creative and unique ideas! I am looking forward to our next shoot together and hopefully many more to come! Harriet

I trying to continue my work with Black, Asian, Indian or dark skinned models as I feel there is still a lot of potential for this type of work and brings its own challenges with lighting etc.

I am happy with portrait fashion and urban work. I don't tend towards glamour and nude since I am not that great at it I just lack the eye for it.

After a year and opening my own studio I still get a real buzz out of working with new or inexperienced models mainly I think they bring such energy and enthusiasm to their work.

I will do some time for print work but only if there is a makeup artist on board. I have found models model and MUA do makeup and the two jobs should be kept separate.


Experience
ROTTEN THIEVES
Just a quick update and notification to all, the studio has suffered two break ins in the last week one to the prop store and one to the main studio. The last, to the main studio has made the roof so badly damaged that it is not worth fixing.

Due to the action of a few burglaries and the inability of the met police even to be able to do much other than catch a cold (the industrial estate has suffered a spate of burglaries over the last two weeks at least 8 to my knowledge) I have decided to shut the studio until new premises can be found and a studio built this effectively means no studio work for at least 3 to 4 months I would think.

So any shoots will be location only.

Sorry for anyone who has booked a studio shoot with me but I can't be bothered supply lighting to every burglar in Romford

I returned to photography after a long break having worked in the newspaper industry for a while. In the days when they still employed in house photographers (yes that long ago)

The last year has been fantastic working with many talented and stunning models. The makeup artists never cease to amaze with their talent of making the beautiful more stunning, all in all it has been a fantastic re start back into photography.


I DO NOT DO glamour or nude mainly because I don't have the eye for it. Also find it mildly uncomfortable.

I do enjoy portrait and fashion work, also whacky ideas and images with bold colours and styles.

TIME FOR PRINT OR CD

I will always consider this work especially if it looks a bit more interesting than run of the mill portfolio updating. However if you are a model I must insist that there is a makeup artist involved. While many models can do makeup to a high standard professional trained MUA do it better in my experience.

Hair stylists and MUA

I especially enjoy working on TFP for new or inexperienced MUA and hair stylists so if you have an idea feel free to contact me here or via the web site
