I have worked with Pierus twice now and we have shot some great photos both times! Nice company, good work ethic and an eye for a good photo makes Pierus a photographer that I am happy to recommend. Thanks very much, Allegra x

Had such a brilliant time shooting with Pierus yesterday, pre-shoot communication was great, and everything was brilliantly planned. From the moment I arrived (which was way too early in the morning, sorry Pierus!!) I felt very welcomed and we had good chat about the shoot. He gave me the freedom to come up with my own ideas/ outfits but also gave great direction. I highly recommend working with Pierus and hope to do so again very soon :)

I contacted Claude as I had loved his pictures for a while and lucky enough he agreed to shoot me! He is incredibly friendly, down to earth and a right laugh! Claude is a extremely good photographer but he was also considerate of what I wanted to try and create also, giving me some great advice and pushing me to improve in a very charming way :) Cannot wait to shoot with him again and I have previewed some of the pictures which I am soo excited about. Thankyou!!!

I had an amaz\ing shoot with Claude yesterday, I think thats the fastest five hours I have known! I could of easily shot with him for five more, and still be hungry for more! He gives great direction, made me feel completely comfortable and made the shoot really fun. Oh and to top it off his work is seriously amazing also! If you get a chance to shoot with him do not pass it up, you wont be disapointed! HIGHLY recommended!

Claude's very motivated to produce images which will impress and have the 'wow' factor, and was keen to listen to my ideas and for me to offer input about what we shot. I think we had a productive shoot and am pleased with the shots, many of which are already in my portfolio as he kindly sent me so many soon after the shoot!

Had a second shoot with Claude this weekend, again the shoot was great fun and got heaps of good shots! He has lots of stuff to mix with my own so the styling was great again and he is versatile in styles so could easily work with again. Again, totally recommend! Added by FrancescaAnne on 19 April 2011, shoot arranged for April 2011 I worked with Claude over the weekend, we got some great shots :-) his precommunication was fantastic, lots of ideas sharing and he was relaxed and easygoing to work with, he also has a handy wardrobe of bits to mix with your own things! Also got some of my first location shots this year (he knows some good places), the shots look great,we got lots of variety and looking forward to seeing the final results :-) definitely recommend!

I shot with Pierus on Thursday at Nic Marchant's studio in Cambridge, and got the images back yesterday (Sunday). They are LOVELY and Pierus is fantastic to work with, open to my ideas but keen to give direction where necessary, and patient with my tiredness (I had been shooting for four hours with Nic previously) and amateurness. He was accomodating with my requests for the images, and just generally all around lovely. I would recommend him to any model experienced or amateur.

I worked with Pierus a few days ago shooting art and fashion nudes. He was friendly, approachable and pushed me- making sure we both got great results for our portfolios. I recommend him highly and hope we cross paths again!

I really enjoyed working with Claude this weekend. He has a great eye for a photograph and pays attention to detail, giving great direction. The images looked fantastic, and I can't wait to see them. It was a pleasure to meet and work with him, and I hope we can collaborate again in future.

I've just moved to Vancouver, so won't be available for any UK shoots for the near future.

Otherwise, I'm always looking to capture the beauty of female muses: art nudes, fashion nudes, fashion, portraits, and dance.

My portfolio shows my artistic eye and technical ability (I'm definitely not a 'tog' or "guy with camera"), and am always looking for new models to work with as my muses.

Experience
Follow me on Tumblr: http://pierus.tumblr.com/

Check out my first video-shoot, with Raphaella
*** http://vimeo.com/pierus/raphaella-et-moi ***

7 years' experience of portraits, headshots, dance, music, weddings and commissioned shoots. Progressed to artistic nude photography in Feb 2010, and have achieved stunning results across 80 shoots, with renowned models down to beginners with potential.

I pride myself on the quality of my work, only producing professional results, from setting up the shot, all the way through to top quality post-processing. I'm passionate about capturing natural beauty, and creating images that evoke emotions.

I prefer to shoot TFCD, which isn't just a way of getting something for nothing. My shoots are usually around 4 hours long, and I provide the model with 50-100 of the very best photos, post-processed to the level shown in my portfolio.
I see TF* as a collaboration, where both the model and photographer get to work on each other's ideas, and both input their time and costs - I'm not looking to make money from models I want to work with, but similarly, don't want to lose money if a model approaches me for a TF shoot, so will expect coverage of studio costs only (my shooting & processing skill & time is the free part)

I prefer models with pale skin (I'm not a fan of fake tan), slimmer figures with some curves, and most importantly, a pretty face with the ability to put across a wide variety of facial expressions.
