I am a very experienced photographer, working in Digital (who isn't!) and film, and moving more and more in the direction of B&W film using medium and large format cameras, the latter a 10"x8" camera for which I shoot on X-ray film (note that it doesn't take X-rays, but the film is simple B&W film, only formulated in the old style from the early days of Photography, so it gives a very different look to images). I print on handmade photosensitive paper in pure Palladium metal, in Carbon pigment transfer and Silver using contact printing methods (hence the need for large negatives).
When shooting models I also use digital, a Nikon D800 (gives massive files and so a great deal of flexibility) and this allows me to easily and quickly give a set of digital files for models' portfolios.
I love to photograph people, portraits, physique and nudes. I know that many models shy away from nudes (a sign of the mores of the 21st century I guess - at least in some places) and my photography does not require nudity, but it is about the human body, so you should be sufficiently comfortable to model in underwear, speedos etc.
I am an artist photographer, and the presentation of images is of central concern to me - I am interested in presenting a body of work through exhibition, possibly in a London gallery and as Folio sets of images for possible collectors in very limited editions to concentrate on my current projects. If your photos appear in such a folio set then they will include 2 APs (Artists Proofs) one of which will be for the model in that image set - so you would then, also receive (in due course) a high quality folio of handmade images from your shoot. If your images appear in a future exhibition then I would be delighted to invite you to that exhibition
I am interested in establishing a body of work which shows the human form in concert with the natural form, the body in the landscape - this would ideally be nudes, but could be carefully posed to be suggestive of the natural state, if you are too shy or otherwise concerned by nudity.
A second body of work to show the human form in isolated, abstracted simplicity against a plain backdrop to focus attention on the body. The images here will explore the body showing fragments and fragments of fragments. Again, ideally nude, but not necessarily
A third set of work to show the people, simple portraits from clothed to semi clothed, fitness and physique, suitable props and locations as part of the ambiance of the image.
I hope that you find these projects of interest and that the way that I work to be of value to you and your portfolio. I look forward to working in partnership with you to continually stay fresh, new and relevant
I work on these projects on TF* basis - they are art projects and there is truly no money to be made in this genre, it for interest, for experience and to just keep shooting. These projects may lead to other work for either of us of course just by virtue of continually being new and fresh!
You can see examples of my portraiture, landscape and macro photography at my website
You can also hire me for portraits, intimate imagery of you, your partner or both.
