For those of you that have spent the time to come to visit my portfolio I thank you.

I’ve had a passion for photography since I was 7 and was given my first Brownie Box Camera, I still have it today. I had a studio in London in the eighties and early nineties, specializing in fashion, editorial, commercial and portraiture.
After a break in the commercial world, I have returned as a professional photographer. I am experienced at working with studio lighting both inside and on location, and enjoy shooting with natural light. I use Nikon and Bowens and work strictly in digital. I’ve logged over 6,000 hours on Adobe Photoshop and I’m now using Adobe CS5 as my digital darkroom.
I have started a journal/blog which I ask you to visit on http://cstgpa.wordpress.com/.
It contains tips and tutorials and some idea of how I produce my images.I will be posting more tips and tutorials in my journal on a regular basis and hope that they will help and amuse you. Follow the link under each image in my portfolio. There are even a few tips for models which might be of use.
I will not shoot nude or topless unless I am being paid for the shoot.
As a fashion, beauty, editorial and portrait photographer I can provide portfolio shoots for aspiring models. A portfolio starter designed to your requirements is a half days shooting with a minimum of 3 sets. Studio or location work can be accomplished. I am experienced in working with new models and would expect to produce around 40 edited images and an A4 print from each set shot. Additional prints are £10 per print. I provide this service to both genders but if female I will provide a make-up artist who also will do hair. Photographer fee £125 and make-up artist is £80 plus £20 travel.
I offer TFP on occasion for my ongoing projects which are as follows:
1. Commercial/Lifestyle - primarily location so after March ends. Looking to build my stock photo library.
2. Vargas style pin-up calendar. Need to complete by July.
3. High Fashion Beauty shots for my portfolio and exhibition.
4. Saucy Seaside postcard, circa 1960/70 (you can google and see examples)
5. Naughty Postcards - circa 1900, again googling will find examples
6. High Fashion - currently interviewing designers and hope to have the first shoot under my belt at Studland.
If you want to be involved just ask
So that's me, I am around in the forums once in a while and hopefully you will come to know me as one of the good guys.
