I'm a photographer (I also do my own post work) with a keen interest in the edgier side of fashion and beauty. I also run a large-ish global company, so while photography is a serious second profession, I don't have as much time to shoot as I would like. As a result, I prefer to use that time to work with people who are fun to be around, and willing to push the boat out to create something amazing .
My company is involved with training, and I personally teach marketing (among other things) to major agencies, so I bring an understanding of what images need to achieve, as well as how to create them. I do undertake portfolio work, and will also consider TF* with exceptional models that I think may suit a personal project or an upcoming piece of commissioned work. Either way my approach is to work with you to create a small number of exceptional images. I do shoot a fair amount of latex fashion, and the occasional artistic nude, but I'm also very comfortable shooting normal fashion, editorial and beauty.
I spend quite a bit of time in London, but I also have a fully equipped studio (using Profoto equipment) at the Grade II listed Manor House in Warwickshire that I share with my wife and muse, Emma Alexa. Emma is happy to be involved in selected shoots with other models (if you can prise her away from her horse for long enough!).
The photo below is the place I am fortunate enough to call home. (Though you wouldn't want the heating bills!). My studio is in the converted stable block and is a really fabulous place to shoot. (And to party, but that's another story!).
If you are a model or MUA, drop me a note to discuss any shoots you would like to arrange, ideas you have for collaboration, or just to say hello - it's always great to meet new and talented people.
