Hi, I am an ex Pro snapper who now does as much photography around my full time work so I class myself as semi pro now. Over the last eight years or so I have mainly done sports photography with the occasional wedding and the odd portrait here and there.
Since studying Photography at college some ten to twelve years ago I have always wanted to try my hand at glamour,lingerie,swimwear and any other female or male studio and/or location type work, I think there is great skill and expertise at getting the best from a model be it in the studio or on location and producing a picture which really compliments the model male or female.
The key for me is nice subtle lighting and trying to put the model at ease and working with each other to get the best possible result you both can.
As said above I am a learner when it comes to this type of photography but I am hoping to work with models that may be a bit more experienced than I am but who would still be willing to work with a very keen, courtious and always willing to learn photographer.
I dont have my own website at the moment, mainly because I dont think I have enough varied material to put on it to make it interesting, I could quite easily put a few thousand boxing photo's on dead easy but I cant see the point so I am going to wait for the time being, will use facebook for a while longer to show my work !
I do have access to a decent little studio which I hire when I am doing a shoot or family portrait etc, I dont normally ask a fee from who ever I am photographing because I pay for the studio out of my own pocket which when in for a full day can be quite costly.
I ask that a time for CD arrangement is ok, up to now I have aimed at models wanting to get some pics to put a portfolio together so then both parties or getting something from the arrangement, I would be willing to pay more experienced models for there time if need be, I would also try to make sure if doing a location shoot that the model would be picked up and made sure she got home ok.
The studio is in Sheffield and has free parking and is very private, has it's own changing/refreshment/toilet facilities etc, at the moment it does not have much in the way of props but I am hoping that will change soon.
I hope I have covered most things so if you are interested in working with me then please dont hesitate to send a message, thanks.
