I'm Laura, I'm 28 and live in West Lothian. I travel to Edinburgh and sometimes Midlothian. I don't drive and do all my travelling via buses, so I don't tend to go any further. I will gladly meet models travelling to Edinburgh at either the bus station or the Waverly train station. Space in my home is limited but I do have lights and backdrops, and the small space doesn't affect the final pictures. I enjoy shooting in model's own homes if not on location, for the background variety. I dabble in creative make-up artistry as it's a hobby of mine; my MUA profile number is #2012563.
I normally shoot alongside my fiancé John, who is also a photographer (stphq on my friends list) and models are welcome bring a chaperone to a shoot with us. When John and I shoot models together, the model will get images from both of us and feedback from us both. I do not allow chaperones when I'm shooting models by myself, this is a personal policy and non-negotiable.
I'm happy to shoot models of pretty much any age so long as they're 18+. Fuller-figured models are fine, any gender. I often shoot with newbies to get their portfolio going. Tattoos, piercings and scars/stretchmarks aren't usually an issue, if the scars are large/very prominent then please let me know of them beforehand. I'm easy-going and friendly and always aim to make models feel comfortable when shooting. Happy to hear from anyone looking to update/kick-start their portfolio, get a bit more experience or just to shoot for the fun of it. Model's own ideas are very welcome.
**I mainly work TF* and I sometimes pay models with new clothes or jewellery as well as images. I do not give out unedited images, I always do some retouching. The photos from a TF* shoot will be given to you via a private Skydrive link; if necessary, a CD can be provided instead. However many final edits I end up with, you will get web-sized, watermarked versions of them all for use online. I will provide non-watermarked, high-res versions of up to 5 of the images if you want to have any printed. Copyright remains with me at all times and I do not permit the re-editing/altering or selling of my images.**
