David is wonderful - work with him!!!!
He's kind, respectful and really easy to get on with. I felt totally at ease with David right from the moment I met him. He's organised, full of ideas and brilliant company. Pre-shoot communications were fantastic and I knew exactly what to bring and what to expect from the shoot - which is soooo helpful!
I had an 8 hour shoot booked with David, but even that flew by too quickly - I had a lot of fun!
My highest recommendations!!!
Well what can I say about David? .... lots :-) (and its all very positive).
David and I are very local to one another and have been discussing a shoot for awhile now. Today we finally ended up in the same place at the same time to have that long awaited shoot.
David was amazing in the communications before the shoot and although we had a little hiccup with finding a studio local to us we managed it and it all worked out perfectly.
David is so friendly/chatty that when I got home I honestly didn't feel like I had got home from an 8 hour shoot, I felt all happy/inspired and felt like I made a new friend. He is very much of the "quality over quantity" type of photographer and isn't afraid to move around while shooting to find the best angles.
He is happy to let a model pose away and from the shots I seen I was very impressed with how he handled the various lighting set ups we worked on.
David was kind enough to go out of his way to come and pick me up/drop me off which was very appreciated and I honestly felt like the day went by so quickly which is always a good sign of a nice day out.
So needless to say I highly recommend David and it was super to finally work with him and hopefully we will see each other again soon.
Had a two hour shoot with David at a studio day yesterday. Really enjoyed it; working on a 50s style which I don't shoot very often, so a bit of variety for me. He was good fun to shoot with and I'm really happy with the shots we got - I would more than happily work with him again.
I had a great short notice fetish shoot with David :) He was such a joy to work with and had some really great ideas :) I would love to work with him again. He even had a plan of the shoot for me to have a look at to get me caught up on the shoot (as another model did not turn up for it) which I found very useful indeed :)I know the photos will look brilliant :)
Travelled up to Dundee from Manchester yesterday to do a Fashion shoot with David.
He made sure as soon as I arrived that I was fed, so he took me to get something to eat. We drove around looking at beauty spots of Scotland. I was amazed at how beautiful some of the places were.
David got me booked into a room for the night for the next days shoot. Which he even went to get some more food n to tescos to get some milk lol But before that we shot in the room creating n experimenting on the natural lighting n lights he had bought! He is so emthusiastic about what hes doing n creating.Creating beautiful b/w images.
The next day we shot in a studio because of weather permitted. So he had a plan B . Very Organised.
David wasnt to well through our shoot! So we had to cancel after a few hours. I felt really bad for him as he was really excited in doing this shoot. Was abit messy behind his car with vomits lol But David is such a lovely photographer. He made me feel so welcome as soon as I arrived. Such a good manner n attitude for his models.
Hes in my book of smiley faces :) lol
Was such a pleasure working you and I hope we can arrange something when Im on my travels up to Scotland again.
Thank you for what was left of a lovely shoot,
I worked with David today and it was a wonderful shoot. Despite the shoot being organised last-minute, David's pre-shoot communication was superb. He was very clear about what he was looking for and left me in no doubt what he needed from the shoot. He was easy to get along with but also very professional and made me feel at ease from the moment we met right through the shoot. David was filled with ideas for poses and outfits but was very open to my suggestions to and welcomed my creative input. He regularly checked I was comfortable and happy throughout the shoot and went out of his way to be sure I remained so. Though David has not been practicing photography for that long, his images are beautiful and he has the makings of a great photographer. Highly recommended.
I had my second lovely shoot with David yesterday, it was great fun as David is a witty, kind and generous person, always considerate about the location safety and his model's comfortability and he always plans excellent locations to shoot in. David is great company and i can think of no better way to spend a day in Scotland than shooting with this lovely gentleman; an absolute pleasure, thank you!
I would recommend David to anyone on this site and hope to work with him again on another trip to Scotland. Thank you, David!!
worked with this lovely photographer the other day and think we got some great shots. He was very professional and new what he wanted from the shoot. Good ideas and nice angles and highly professional. Hope to work with him again very soon x
I worked alongside Russ Freeman and David on a tuition day this week. I was there to answer questions David had about the model 'bit' of photography and gave my input throughout the day.
I found David to be very friendly, polite and eager to learn. He was clearly extremely keen to improve and very enthusiastic.
I would recommend David to any model.
I look forward to seeing you get better and better David :)
I spent a few hours with David going over basic photography and how he can improve.
He is incredibly keen to progress, quick to learn and an all round nice guy.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how you progress :-D
David is a fantastic person to work with; respectful, communicative, collaborative, good company and an imaginative photographer too. What a lovely man, I always look forward to working with him - a favourite!
Had a shoot on 18th june with dave for the first time, He was being mentored buy a photographer i have worked with several time. Dave was very friendly and easy to get along with i enjoyed the shoot when had and look forward to seeing the photo's, Would highly recommend dave and hope to work with him in the furture.
From contact on the forum, Dave and I arranged to undertake a crash course in location shooting together, Dave learning from my mistakes over the past 30 years. A dependable model in Nixy-B was set up. Though the weather was rain all day, the fall back venue allowed the shoot to carry on. Dave proved himself to be dependable, trustworthy, had a good manner with Nicola, was courteous and he is a gentleman. I have no qualms in recommending Dave.
David is a fab friendly guy, ive known him for a couple of years now, and he's a very down to earth guy. i was happy to model for him, for him to gain experience, and i plan to model some fashion shots for him next time. i also would like to thank David for takin pictures of me, as i am currently pregnant and am happy that he was happy to take pictures of a pregnant female.
David would be great for any model to work with as he has so many different ideas, he is a fab photographer, and has fab ideas. Thankyou David for everything :)

Up to nude
Depends on assignment
I am looking to build experience over time. I am looking to improve overtime so I intend to shoot experienced models only in a variety of situations until I am more experienced.
General Rules I will only pay for work I wish to do, with money or other trade such as outfits bought for a shoot outfits that you get to keep.(agreed beforehand). I do not believe in TFP, TFCD as I could not guarantee to have pictures with models in a reasonable time-scale.
Please note that regarding Male Models. I am happy to shoot Male models and intend to do so in 2013. I already have my plans for 2012 sown up in terms of shoots and Budgets. I intend to approach a few gents in a year or so for arranging shoots.
For Female Models
I will be looking to do some strobist work over the next 6 - 8 months and outdoor beauty work.
Contact for work:
Please note that I am happy to be contacted for work please note that I have a very limited budget but will reply to all emails.
Experience I am a photographer who is slowly building skills.
I enjoy shooting a variety of styles.
I will not ask for time for prints as I will not be able to provide pictures in reasonable time scales.
Definitions are very difficult to Justify. I therefore am going to anyway:
Glamour: to be like Barbie, Pamela Anderson Art: to be like Guinevere, Merinda, Fetish: To be like Morticia Adams, or Zena Warrior Princess.
The best here is of course Morticia (Anjelica Huston).
The rest are a waste of time really.
