I seek to create beautiful expressive photographs of interesting people. I work almost exclusively with nudes because the body is deeply emotive, visually fascinating, and sumptuously beautiful; and I want to celebrate this. I work primarily with women for the same reasons.
The images in my portfolio are low quality scans of hand made platinum prints. There is an original work of art behind each of these images - something you can see, touch and hang on your wall. So far my prints have reached walls in the UK, Germany, France, Greece, the USA and Canada, with hopefully more to add in the future.
All my models are important people to me, and I prefer to work with just a few models over a long time. As we get to know and understand each other better, our shared creative work becomes deeper and more meaningful. That being said, I'm always looking for new and interesting people who are relaxed in their own skin and want to try something different.
If you're interested in modelling for me then take a look at my website - then contact me if you like what you see.
