I have been concentrating on retro, vintage and burlesque images, and in particular in recreating imagery by airbrush artists from the forties and fifties like Elvgren and Petty. To the best of my knowledge the particular ‘airbrush cheesecake’ style of retouching I am using is unique to me in the UK.
More recently my work has encompassed other genres such as fetish, latex, shibari and nude work.
I’m on Facebook where I am Retro Photostudio, where you can find my gallery of several hunded of my images.Recent projects have included Bettie Page bondage and 1920's Louise Brookes recreation. I particularly enjoy working with models who can add their own ideas to the creative process.
Publications include Bella Morte Magazine, Skin Two, Rag Mag, Retro Calendar for www.collectif.com, Milkcow Magazine, Pin-up Perfection magazine, Marquis, The New York Optimist & the Milkcow Pinup Calendar. I've recently shot for Libidex, Playful Promises, Collectif, HotRockinBelle, Bamboo Bettie and for CorsetHeaven, as well a few dozen shoots with burlesque artists and troupes.
My work has featured on the covers of Skin Deep, Tattoo Vixens, Skin Shots International, Milkcow, Skin Art, Vintage Life, Tattoo Revolution Magazine, Tattoo Life, and many more.
Although I mainly accept paid commissions, I am prepared to consider TFCD (if your looks/shoot suggestions will really benefit my portfolio) and you will be required to sign a Model Release and also provide a photo ID as proof of age.
I'm sure you'll enjoy your shoot - feel free to contact anyone I've worked with here to find out more!
I've been into photography for over thirty years; my work has appeared on the covers of magazines nationally and internationally
