About MeFor the last few years I have photographed female models on a regular basis. I enjoy the process of model photography, working in a professional, but relaxed, friendly way. I'm easy to get on with, honest, friendly and chatty and I will always explain things if necessary and give direction if required.
I've had a lot of experience shooting models with varying levels of expertise, from newbies to professionals, from this and other sites and I'm always willing to work with models interested in lingerie and glamour styles. I shoot mostly at my home studio in Sheffield but will also consider location/home shoots. I'm happy to work on a TFCD basis with new or existing models if it will be of mutual benefit.
My style of photography is clearly displayed in my portfolio, I don't pretend that any of my work is particularly 'arty' or 'creative', it is what it is and I make no apology for it, though I am happy to work with you if you have any interesting ideas you'd like to try out and think I could be of assistance .
So if you are interested in working TF with me, you can either message me here, or through my website, www.m-shoot.co.uk and I'll be pleased to discuss a shoot with you providing it is on a TF basis. I don't hire models to shoot for fun so please no 'here's my rates, book me' messages. When I have paid work available, I'll message you directly, or use the casting call system.
I've put together a few notes below, which aren't meant as a rant but give more information as to how I like to work. Please read these carefully before getting in touch.
All models with whom I work are treated professionally and with friendliness and courtesy. I expect to be treated similarly. I try to ensure that models feel as comfortable, at ease and as safe as possible at all times.
Models need to be as completely reliable and as dedicated as I am. If you arrange a shoot and can't keep the appointment, I expect reasonable notice, so I have the chance to make alternative arrangements.
I insist that we exchange contact phone numbers so that I can check with you before the shoot and to keep in touch on the day whilst travelling, should the need arise.
I don't work with chaperones present on a shoot, they are unnecessary and unwelcome in a professional situation. Chaperones can make a model feel self-conscious therefore inhibiting her performance, can cause disruption to the flow of the shoot by distracting the model or the photographer, they can sometimes attempt to interfere and try to direct the shoot, and that's before we get onto MY security issues!
Exceptions will be made if there are special circumstances, eg: under 18 yrs, language difficulties, disability or a medical condition etc, but this must be discussed before the shoot is confirmed, not after.
I have no objection to someone bringing you who wishes to satisfy themselves that everything's above board before leaving and picking you up later, and you are, of course, completely free to text/phone someone to let them know that you're safe and well.
Unless I've agreed specifically to a special arrangement, for a TFCD shoot I give around six or seven high quality images per outfit/set, edited, cleaned, retouched and resized (with logo) for your personal use on the web/email/fb etc. So four or five outfit changes would give you around thirty images. These will be selected by you immediately after the shoot is over when we've both reviewed all the images taken and these will be made available to you within 7 working days post-shoot, either on a CD or as a secure download. I never give out unedited images and no images will be available on the day. If, at any time you require a printed image(s) then please ask, I can supply high quality prints of varing sizes processed by a pro photo-lab at reasonable prices or can send you a high res full size digital copy to print out yourself.
