Thank you for looking at my profile.
I am a published photographer who has made the transition from full-time to part-time in the interests of preserving my creative perspective. Typically I shoot several times a week on location or in the studio (with natural and artificial light), but try to get outside as much as possible in the warmer months and longer days. If I shoot outside in the summer, this is often in the few hours after sunrise or the few hours before sunset, unless we are in a location offering shade.
I tend to shoot models under 25 years of age and up to UK dress size 10. I am not generally a fan of cosmetic medical enhancements. I do not require models to be a specific height.
In general, I do two types of shoots:
* TFP, Tests or Collaborations - Put simply, these are unpaid but give everyone a chance to update portfolios and experiment a little. I also sometimes use these shoots an opportunity to work with someone with a view to using them for paid work at a later date, especially when they are new or inexperienced. After a couple of hours I can get an idea of ability (and potential), look on camera and attitude, and these factors help me to decide whether I think a model will work out for other projects.
* Paid - Models are paid for these shoots and the end result is normally for a commission, client, publication, stock or known destination. There are usually specific ideas in place for this type of work.
I am happy to provide references as needed. I believe a fun and enjoyable working atmosphere is essential in creating a good picture. I also have a website with more images and information.
Thank you for your interest. :-)
