Would suggest to shoot with Paul anyday! What a fab photographer.. Also had Ray as well! both made me feel relaxed and totally cool as a cucumber considering it was my first shoot wearing lingerie! Considering I the model has been having a hard time this shoot certainly brightened up my day/whole weekend and most likely weeks/months and has really given me a confidence boost! I cant thank you ENOUGH! Would shoot with you again! What an absolute pleasure!

I had the pleasure to work with Paul for the first time today! He was what i expected plus more! He instantly made myself and the other model feel comfortable. He knew exactly what he wanted, to get amazing images! Thank you both (and model) so much for such an awesome fun shoot! Can't wait to see the images! :)

I had my first shoot with Paul on Saturday it was an amazing morning, I got made to feel very at ease and comfortable by himself and his crew. His chilled out approach and encouraging words helped me get over my nerves quickly and I think we got some good shots. I would strongly recommend working with Paul if your ever get the opportunity.

I had such a great time with Paul and his lovely gang on Saturday (12.2.11), he's a fab photographer and if my preview shot is anything to go by, I'd jump at the chance to do it again. :D Thanks Paul!! :)

Despite me getting lost, Paul was aptient, and directed me to where we needed to be. We shot for a very fast couple of hours, getting what promises to be some excellent photography. There were two other lovely humans there too, one practicing for something, and another doing different work. Everything was explained before the shoot, in good detail, so I was aware of what to expect. And it was my first 'man shoot', as in it wasn't about butterflies and daisies, there was fake blood and swords and other stuff!! Myself and my friend had an excellent day time, we were made to feel welcome, and hopefully managed to get the images Paul desired. Thank You.

Paul's an absolute, genuine, sweetheart of a photographer! I found it rather easy to work with, and very bubbly, I had a very good time with Paul, and the images turned out amazing! - I'd love to work with Paul again, as he made me feel very comfortable (and it was my first ever implied nude shoot!)

Paul is a great photographer, professional but relaxed, easy to work with and a great person to get one with. Gave direction that was easy to follow and understand. I'm very much looking forward to working with this photographer again. Would definitely recommend this photographer to anyone.

I had a fantastic shoot yesterday with Paul, even if the subject matter was a little bizarre he put all his effort into making sure we got some great shots! He's an extremely friendly guy who made me laugh throughout the day whilst still maintaining a highly proffessional atmosphere. Also a big thanks to his assistant on the day who always made sure i was comfortable and well looked after. I highly recommend Paul and would love to shoot with him again

If you have an idea for a TFP/CD shoot, let me know. If it's a good idea we'll run with it for sure...

Experience
Introduction
------------
I am a commercial and editorial portrait photographer.

What I Do
---------
As a professional photographer I aim to create images of the highest quality.
I pride myself in being flexible enough to shoot everything from Actor Headshots to complete model portfolios, bringing the very best out of each model I work with.

Just How Professional?
----------------------
With 12 years behind the camera my experience and knowledge is extensive.
I am a watched member of Canon Professional Services and multi-award winning.

I have been the featured professional photographer in numerous magazines.

I am sponsored by Number 1 camera bag manufacturer Lowepro

How does my experience help you?
--------------------------------
Inexperienced Models: I can provide as much direction as you need, working with you to get the shots that bring out the most in you. I can even provide a dedicated Creative Director who will assist you with each and every pose.

Experienced Models: It's really annoying having so much talent, but the photographer not understanding how your poses effect the final image. My long history working with models, and large clients means I have the creativity to nail that perfect image.

Paid or TFP/CD?
---------------
I am now in the position where, due to ongoing success, I do not need to do TFP/CD shoots.
However, I am open to ideas. So if as a model you have an idea that you think i'd find appealing do get in touch.

I am of course available for paid shoots.

Studio or Location?
-------------------
I am just as happy on location as I am in the studio.
I can provide a mobile studio (high key, white background) or full set studio in Plymouth, Exeter or Exmouth.

If your looking for something location based, I just need to know what kind of location you are interested in. If I don't know of a location I have location scouts that can be called in to find somewhere.

Chaperones
----------
Model safety is key. There is no compromise on this!
With every shoot you are more than welcome to bring a chaperone.
If the shoot is nude/topless I would prefer that partners stay at home and you bring another friend.

Having done this for years, even the most trusting of partners get jealous and this wastes time and money and will not be tolerated.

There is an exception on this. If your partner is a photographer, I am willing to make the exception. I am also willing to meet your partner before the shoot if you are insistent on only them being the chaperone.

Make-Up Artist
--------------
Most models do their own hair and make-up. If you would like me to provide someone I can do so. In the case of TFP/CD shoots this would be at your cost unless arranged otherwise.

My Clients
----------
I have the honour of working for Saatchi & Saatchi, HSE, TSS, CPN, Etc.
I'd love to work with you next...
