About me
*****ABOUT ME*****

I am completely open-minded and work collaboratively with models (18+ ONLY) to create real images of expression and personality. Nothing is formally directed by me, there are no set plans.  An informal framework bespoke to the individual personality and interests of each model. 

It's about comfort.  It's about enjoyment.  It's about fun.  It's about people. Whether you are experienced, just starting out, or trying something new, it's all about you.

I refuse to "doctor" a photograph.  I do not view photography as a moral standard with a requirement to capture an impartial perspective.  I see photography as a means by which I capture what my eyes see as determined by my brain, which in itself is teased or tortured by my chemical make up.  One day a rubbish bin might be more interesting than a face.  Whatever the subject is, it is then for me to capture it with that emotion.  

I display ONLY six photographs from each model's shoot, but there are many more of each lad available!

You MUST complete a Model Release Form and prove your age (18+ ONLY).

*****SAFETY*****

For both our safety and security, please read the Suzy Lamplugh Trust advice.  www.suzylamplugh.org

You MUST complete a Model Release Form and prove your age (18+ ONLY).

*****LEGAL BIT*****

If you ask me to take photographs of you naked, then you are mandated in law to prove that you are 18+, responsible, and of sound mind.  Section 45 of the Sex Offences Act 2003 amended Section 1 of the Protection of Children Act 1978 by raising the age of a "child" from 16 to 18.  The Coroners and Justice Act 2009 also defines "child" as anyone under 18.  This means it is an offence to "take, make, allow to take, distribute, show, possess with intent to distribute, or advertise, indecent photos or pseudo-photographs of anyone under the age of 18."

COPYRIGHT PROTECTED.  No photo may be used, edited, reproduced, transferred, published or distributed, without the expressed written permission of the artist.  No photo may be used in a defamatory manner, or to endorse a service, product or opinion.  This is strictly prohibited.

*****GENERAL MODELLING ADVICE*****

AVOID THE BIGGEST MODELLING SCAM - DO NOT PAY FOR A PORTFOLIO

I hear time and time from those who are trying to break into modelling the same story; they are "enticed" to one of these companies for a portfolio.  It will not help you at all and is a complete waste of money.  Natural shots, un-styled, no make-up and simple standing straight onto the camera are best.  A friend can take them against a plain background.

Equally, DO NOT pay anyone to represent you!

EVERYONE IS A "PHOTOGRAPHER"

Anyone can buy a camera these days and call themselves a photographer.  Do your research, contact other models who have worked with the photographer.  Check the quality of photographs.

GENERAL ADVICE

Models must work hard to look their best - a healthy diet, regular exercise and general TLC are all essential.  What you wear is also important.  But looking great is only half the job.  Being professional is a must.  This means turning up on time, having a positive attitude and generally getting along with everyone at the casting or on the shoot.
