I'm a qualified, published, insured, commercial/fashion/glamour/portrait/headshot/weddings
I am within the Medway towns, Chatham, 5 mins from the station which in turn is 40 mins from London Victoria, so if anyone likes my work and wants a shoot, get in touch.
I've been shooting seriously for about 20 years, the last 7 with digital, and now do some commercial work mainly advertising and product photography, and have a growing collection of private clients, for whom I produce "coffee table books" ranging from children, couples, engagement to full boudoir.
My rates are flexible, re time, output, and location, so if you want to hire me, drop me a line with your idea and I'll send you a quote. I did have a standard price list but felt it was better to offer a completely one off service.
Whether it is for a special occasion, to add to your modeling portfolio or a stunning family or individual portrait be assured that I will capture the moment in a professional, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
My shoots cover a mixture of location and studio work, both of which I find interesting and challenging. I have mobile studio equipment so am able to shoot anywhere indoors that you may have available.
I also have a small home studio (Chatham) which can offer a variety of sets and suitable for styles from glamour through to lifestyle, using professional studio lighting. I also have, access to another local Studio, in Maidstone, and have a list of others, both in the Midlands and Kent I'm happy to use..
Chaperones can accompany models I have no problems with them coming along they prove great at making coffee etc...Or holding a reflector. However if you want to model or work on a closed set so be it. Regardless of what limit you work to, or age you are my golden rule is The model's comfort and safety comes first.

Regardless of what sort of shoot we arrange, I will require you to fill out a model release, to fit with the work we are undertaking, and that suits both parties for the shoot.

I'd been very nervous but he put me at ease straight away and even managed to get me out of my comfort zone a little. The pictures we got are amazing and far more varied than I'd expected them to be. A fantastic photographer who I absolutely cannot wait to work with again!"
