The work on this site is my nude art/glamour work,but that is not THE ONLY WORK I DO ! As a professional I do weddings, home portraits ,studio portfolios, fashion,and catalogue work ;anything that comes along. My motto is "it's not what I do,it's the way that I do it,that's what gets results!" I'm very understanding and hold teaching qualifications as well! When arranging a shoot with a model I have not worked with before ,in common with many other experienced photographers ,I will always ask that we have a chat over the phone.This cuts out time wasting,and any other misunderstandings. Also may I ask that under any circumstances DO NOT send me text messages! Also if I make an offer for paid work,if this is not confirmed within 2 days then the offer will be withdrawn.
As a long standing member of this wonderful profession and one that has years of professional training I hold to my beliefs that only through technical perfection can one claim artistic rights. Hence my work will not have wonky angles,horizons not level,heavy side lighting ,verticals leaning, unbalanced compositions,and under exposed pulled super contrasty images . Models will not appear having just been beheaded,or about to commit an act of terrorism, or be shot feet first !
I work best ,if recent experience dictates ,with mature models .I am very interested in hearing from any one with latter day ambitions ,and I will fulfill your hopes for you ! These days I do any post production /retouching that may be necessary to make an image as perfect as possible . As a matter of routine I can remove lines and bumps ,tan lines and tattoos ,bruises and hair whisps , and knock years off you if required !
My great inspiration is the late Yusuf Karsh of Ottawa ,but Lichfield ,Busselle ,Gerson ,have been influential too! All the best , Roger
