About Me

I'm a face painter by trade. I really enjoy it and it pays the mortgage. As I work events I never get a chance to take more than a camera phone snap shot of my work and it's beginning to do my head in! This is my main reason for joining MM.

I'd also like to spread my wings a little by doing some test shoots in other areas of make up, just to keep the creativity flowing.

Current areas of interest for test shoots:-
1. Natural "Clean" headshots .
2. "Old Skool Hollywood" - think classic B & W movies for inspiration. Real Glamour. 1920's -40's.
3. BODY PAINTING - I am building up a database of suitable models so please get in touch if you are interested.


For the protection of all concerned I am unable to work with models under 18 for shoots that involve any level of nudity - FULL STOP.



I can send you a link to my schedule on request, as I know this makes life easier - just ask!
All bookings require a full address, including postcode + a contact number for the venue. 
I do expect to receive images from any test shoot within one calendar month. My reasoning behind this is that I want to learn from my mistakes so need to see the images while memories of the shoot are still fresh in my mind.

It is expected that test shoots are to be for portfolio and personal promotional purposes only.

                       Current availability:-
Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am - 3.30pm.
Within one hours travel distance of the Cutty Sark DLR.

At present I take on paid face/body painting & temp tattoo work. For commercial shoots I have very reasonable rates - just ask!
