After giving up on arranging a date to shoot, as the rain just wouldn't stop, we spontaneously managed a short one!
And miraculously, regardless of the sun going down on us, got some really good photographs.
I'm also very flattered to see Phil is using one of them as his main profile image :)
Like the rest of the comments say, he is very professional, but funny too. Would definitely recommend him and really hope to shoot again with him soon!
PS - Big thanks to Maxine for guidance during the shoot!
First time working with both Phil and Maxine, they are both very approachable, professional and genuine people. Working on Phil's concept was great and very creative i may add. I would greatly recommend this duo and look forward to working with them again in the near future, we achieved amazing shots throughout the shoot, a great opportunity to work with, very much apprecaited, Angel :) x
I have worked with Phil on many occasions now and I have to say he is a brilliant photographer to work with. His photography is of excellent quality therefore not a lot of retouching needs to be added to the picture. I recommend Phil to anybody who wants good, quality and natural pictures
Second time working with Phil, got to say he is a brilliant tog, make's the model feel relaxed a great laugh and ill recommend him to any model that need's a good tog who know's what he's talking about! thank's Phil!
Phil and Maxine are lovely people . They are specialists in what they do. Also patient .
Our shoot together was amazing and we covered fashion to glamour. A successful shoot ,with a follow up shoot planned .
The three of us are all proud of our project together. And our working relationship for the future .
Phlip and Maxine took some photos of my daughter.. Very nice couple who were professional and very good with the little one, was obvious they had dealt with children before!.. Pics came out lovely anyway :) would def recommend.. Thankyou both x
It was a lovely shoot with two very professional & talented photographers
The images are some of my favourites & I’m now needing to update them as they’re few years old for my agents to book me but I’m hoping to recreate the shoots as they are just what I need
Hope to work again with these great folks
Fantastic shoot. I had so much fun and the raw images I saw afterwards were amazing.
Phil and I got on really well and I thoroughly enjoyed the day shooting, although his main idea involved soaking me with the garden hose during a fairly cold day! Despite that, he kept me topped up with hot drinks and kept me as warm as possible.
I very much appreciated his respect, regarding my levels, and never once pushed me or made me feel uncomfortable. I would recommend him to any model.
I hope to work with Phil again in the near future.
Oh, and just because I said I would: he is a complete nut job, but that's what makes him so easy to work with! Can't wait to shoot again.
I throughly enjoyed todays shoot with Phil and Maxine - 100% recommended - made me feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole day - and really did make the most of a full day! look forward to seeing the rest of my images as i know they will be great!
Thanks again and look forward if get the chance to work together again!!

I have worked with Phil and Maxine on a couple of occasions and i have really enjoyed it.I was very welcomed by them and felt comfortable and took some great pictures.I Would definitely recommend them as the results from the shoots were some of the best I've received. Most recently i attended one of their portrait evenings for their local camera club which was also a enjoyable experience.

Depends on assignment
I am always most keen to do outdoor shoots with models, something that perhaps combines the beauty of the model with that of the landscape - poppy fields, sunflowers, windmills etc.
Ideally shoots will be 'with the light' so as Summer comes along either pretty early in the morning or mid-evening but of course this is not always practical for you young folk so, whilst ideal, it is not crucial.
Generally, WE ARE PAID for our shoots BUT will still consider TF for the right person / situation (please do feel free to ask, we do remember what it is like when you start out)
It is fair to say that we will generally bias our paid work toward those where we have previously worked TF as not only does this make directing easier but also demonstrates our genuine desire to reward those that have previously proven willing.
If you have managed to read all the way through here then congratulations, perhaps there is the chance that we will work together soon.
Experience Greetings. Go and get a cuppa - this is wordy for which i make no apology.
I am happy to work from 'fashion' to 'art' nude IF DONE SUBTLEY and with respect for both model and photographer but gratuitous "lad's mag" etc is not where my interests lie and in my most humble opinion it generally has little to do with photography.
No model will EVER be asked to work to any level that they are not 100% comfortable with and to be honest i want to work with those that can see the difference in camera technique and settings and do not think that a pair of boobs make a good picture.
I have no issue with models bringing along a chaperone - just ensure that they are interested in photography or have a lot of patience.
Please note that in order to guarantee that all images are appropriate we reserve the right to ask for models to bring suitable ID showing clear proof of age for us to copy to file - (we adhere to DPA) this serves both to protect our own reputation from any genuine mistakes and as such protects those young people that perhaps should not be on here.
You will see that i have not listed myself as a 'professional' photographer as technically all that means is that photography is the source of my main income. As i have a number of 'business interests' (some more interesting than others) my using of this terminology would be a lie.
All models WILL be treated with a professional courtesy, i/we will strive to gain images that YOU want and ensure that YOU are completely happy with your images prior to them being used anywhere.
Whilst my other business interests allow me to be flexible with days/times etc it does mean that i have to plan my diary - as such i do not appreciate NO SHOWS and/or lack of communication relating to an organised shoot as this is time that could have been committed to 'proper' work.
Whether paid or TF, i expect a basic level of courtesy / professionalism, we can all fall foul of unforeseen circumstance but there is no excuse for general ignorance or lack of communication. I require telephone contact upon initial arrangement and reasonable communication throughout the lead up to a shoot.
