I'm a hobbyist photographer living in Edinburgh. These days my shoots are split between hired studio space or location although I do have a small and basic home studio set up. I have about four years experience of shooting models.
If you're uncertain about your safety then of course you can contact some of the models I've worked with previously, or sometimes I meet up with the model for a coffee beforehand to discuss the shoot and get to know each other. I've got referrals listed at other portfolio sites, send me a message for a link.
I finished a foundation evening course in photography at Stevenson College Edinburgh a couple of years ago, mostly working with black & white film development and enlarging.

I've worked with James several times now and it has always been a pleasure. James knows what he wants out of the shoot but never over-directs. He is open for creative input from the model and always aims to create interesting and artistic images. I have been very happy with the results of our shoots and would work with him again any-time. To make a long story short: Highly recommended!

Was pleased to successfully organise a shoot at very short notice (on the day!) with James whilst I was up in Scotland had some free time in Edinburgh. We worked for a few hours in his home studio flat. I found him friendly, professional, considerate, easy to work with and good company, and would happily work with him again.

I had an absolutely lovely shoot with James and Gilda Lily at his chosen studio in Edinburgh (also lovely!) He was so courteous, kind and polite; I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would certainly jump at the chance to work with him again myself. Thanks James!

Had a shoot with James last week and had a fabulous time.
James is very easy to work with, fairly relaxed when it came to what we were going to shoot and we got quite lucky with the weather working to our advantage when we needed it to.
Communications before the shoot where excellent and he is such a nice fellow. He even sent me some shots after the shoot and they turned out fantastically. I would have no problems at all in recommending James to other models and I hope to work with him again in the future!
Had a great little shoot with James on my recent tour of Scotland. We worked at his home in Edinburgh and he was very welcoming and respectful.
He's a great photographer and I definitely wouldn't hesitate in working with him again in the future :)

Had a great shoot with James last week. He asked me to do some creative makeup, which was a lot of fun as I don't often get asked to do more interesting makeup. Would definitely recommend him and shoot again. :)

I had an art nude shoot with James recently at his apartment studio. His communication prior to the shoot was excellent and I felt comfortable throughout the shoot.
I shot with James today in his home studio. He was pleasant, courteous and polite and I felt completely comfortable. Recommended.
