I have worked with Les many times and we always have fun and create some great images.
This shoot was exceptional and I love the images ! We can go months years without shooting and just get straight back into it knowing what is needed from the shoot!! Can't wait for the next one !!

I loved working with Les! He instantly made me feel comfortable. The main thing I loved about working with Les is that he knew exactly what he wanted to get out of the shoot and his knowledge/experience was greatly appreciated.

I feel as though I have learned so much from working with him. He was great at explaining (and even demonstrating!) the kind of shots he was wanting and made me feel comfortable enough to try my own thing.

We also worked with Les' friend, Phil Ryott who was also a lot of fun and very friendly!

Both photographers were professional, welcoming and down to earth!

Worked with Les for the 2nd time last week and had a brilliant, fun shoot, we worked on location in the sunshine, as always Les was respectful, polite and a total gentleman.. always making sure I was ok and comfortable.

Love the images from the shoot too, Les is creative and has an eye for what makes a great image.

thanks again for a fab shoot :)

Sunday was my 2nd ever shoot with Les and its been the best ever I can not wait to see my pictures! What can I say about this guy he is the most kindess gentleman I've met. I was very nervous on 1st shoot at he guided me very well which wanted me eager to book another shoot with him! The 2nd shoot was on a beach which we were shooting 4hours as we did not realise the time as we were having such fun! He even treated me 2a mcdonalds afterwards n gave me very good hints and tips on what to do and not to do in this industry! Most certainly would recomend les :-) to top it off his pictures what he does to them with effects ect is amazing :-) xxx

Les cancelled on the morning of the shoot we had arranged. I was offered my compensation payment as I had turned down paid work that day to shoot. I have never received this compensation payment and then after much trying on my part, Les has never been able to rearrange the shoot with me.

I have met Les many times now and he is very approachable, honest and friendly. He put me at ease instantly when I first shot with him and every meeting since has been just as relaxed. He provides encouragement and direction where needed to models and his ideas are very innovative! I have worked at Simply Portraits studio with different photographers over the last couple of years and have always found the place to be well equipped and spacious and Les is a brilliant host.
