Thanks for all the image comments - much appreciated.

Training is available for those who prefer one-to-one sessions, or small workshops. Everything can be structured to your specific needs and delivered in an informative yet relaxed manner, avoiding the '5 fellas all grabbing shots over each others shoulders' approach.
Please do not expect a jargon-filled 'Masterclass' (although the technicalities are there for consistent results), but rather a down to earth way of producing quality images utilising both top end branded equipment and inexpensive DIY items held together with gaffer tape and clips. If required, the sessions can also end with a brief analysis of the session images and any basic retouching techniques required, (although in all likelihood, your PS skills will probably far outweigh mine, as I tend to limit most post-production to only what I used to do with film and paper).
If you would like a shoot, please just ask - there is a 99% chance I will say 'Yes'.
Me Paying You:
I am always on the lookout for good local Models to work with at the photography training sessions I run. Good rates of pay for the work involved. Reasonable travel expenses are provided, as is a warm, private environment and of course lunch and tea/coffee.
For these sessions, I will only work with good, reliable Models that I have previously photographed, either on a test shoot, collaborative or paid basis.
You paying Me:
I do appreciate that often, endless 'TF' shoots don't really produce the results you need to gain further paid work, so if that route isn't quite working out for you and stronger / more memorable images are required (or just something completely different but within a given time scale), please feel free to get in touch.
Once or twice a year, I will offer a collaboration to work on ideas that I rarely get the time or opportunity to shoot, so please check back for any castings. If you have an idea you would like to discuss, please get in touch but only if you are either:
Classically dance trained, very 'bendy', athletic / toned, heavily tattooed or possess long, long, legs.
The styling / outfits shown in most of my portfolio images are stock items and available for hire, along with an array of props.
Thanks for viewing and I hope we may work together soon - all you need to bring is ID to confirm age 18+.
(A light-hearted attitude is also very welcome as it makes the shoots far more enjoyable and usually more productive).
