I'm a Glasgow-based semi-pro photographer and I have been closely involved with Photography for over 30 years. Although I enjoy it in all forms, my main interests at present are landscapes, panoramas, weddings and model photography; the latter including portraits, beauty, glamour, edgy fashion and figure studies.
The majority of my model work is undertaken in the studio but I do take on models for a number of location shoots, particularly in the summer months
I take my photography with models very seriously - I am communicative, courteous, prompt, reliable, and totally professional at all times. I expect the same standards from models in return.
I am reasonably skilled in the use of Photoshop and all images are given minor editing prior to being given out to models. Image manipulation or more serious retouching can be done per instruction.
Like everyone else in this business I prefer paid work, however in times when I am less busy, or if I am working on a personal project, I may consider taking on limited TFP/TFCD offers from selected people, so please feel free to ask.
At present I am particularly interested in darker models ie., gothic, punk, alternative and fetish. Also seeking models with whom I can create a number of fantasy images.

I had a shoot last weekend with Don, it was 3rd time lucky as we were previously rained off and the planned location had an event on , so we finally managed to shoot! Don was great! He had plenty of ideas of poses (including off of trees!), giving me clear directions and having many ideas of where to shoot ! I can't wait to see the final images ! I would highly recommend Don to shoot with! -- Added by Lisamcee on Thursday, November 17, 2011, shoot arranged for November 2011.

Donald was one of the photographers who answered my casting call. Having looked at his work, i was really excited at the prospect of working with him. He turned up on time, well prepared and tackled the lack of light etc, in the shooting location very well - sorry about that! I was very comfortable shooting with Donald, and i really felt like i got more relaxed and better at my poses with his direction. Being fairly new and not as confident about modelling, i found myself not shying away so much when trying a certain stance or pose. I know i have a lot of work to do, and photographers like Donald really do help when it comes to building up a model's self-esteem. I'm looking forward to see how the photographs turned out and i'd definitely recommend working with Donald. I hope to shoot with him again soon! Thanks so much.
