I'm a male photographer in my 40's. I first started photography in the early 80's with a zenith 12xp 35mm camera kit, and my passion grew from there. I took photography at school and went on to work in the photographic industry as a darkroom tech.
I then got a job in Eastwood at a photographic studio and printers, mainly prossesing film and printing (by hand).
After a year I started to help in the studio and on wedding shoots, finaly taking on the full running of the studio in 1991. I left there a few years later and carried on with film photography until I made the jump to digital in 2005.
I have since became a self employed photographer in Alfreton, Derbyshire, shooting portraits/Commercial presentations & Real estate. Although I do still enjoy child portraiture, my real passion is adult portraiture.
I would really like to further my portfolio in this area and am subsequently looking to work with models who want to make or further their portfolio. Being a self employed family man, money is in short supply, so I can't hire models, shoots would have to be tfp or tfcd.
If there are any models who would like to collaborate, please get in touch (travel is no problem).
I also greatly enjoy post production/editing work and print restoration (much to the annoyance of my wife) as I can be in front of the PC for days on end.
