PLEASE DO NOT PUT IN A FRIEND REQUEST, (OR SNEAK AN OFFER TO WORK FOR ME AS A TAG), IF YOU DO DIGITAL RETOUCHING. I USE ONE OF THE TOP DIGITAL ARTISTS ON DEVIANT ART AND HAVE NO REQUIREMENTS IN THAT FIELD
Former National Photography Training Manager, and Regional Photography Manager (Southern England and London) for a Google Trusted Agency shooting "See Inside" virtual tours.
I also work as a freelance photographer covering commercial product photography, fashion, dance, fitness, tourism, food, architecture and erotic-artistic stills and video.
My studio is available for hire - see below.
I have some 30 years experience. My main profile image, the ballet dancer, here was shot on a Bronica ETRS camera using Tri-X film for a small modelling and entertainment agency where I worked regularly from 1984 to 1986. Whilst there I shot the portfolio that got Clare Mulholland into Select agency; (still in the industry and now based in Seattle). I am based in Worthing, West Sussex, UK. I am willing to travel for shoots or work from my studio.
Prior to returning full time to photography in 2008 I undertook freelance photography to fit in with my work as a senior consultant within the UK online and hard copy advertising markets for over 12 years. Prior to that I was head of training for the UK wing of one of the USA's largest photographic companies, and a director of companies in both the UK and France in the satellite television industry operating throughout EMEA.
I trained as a dancer and choreographer in my youth. I still speak "ballet".
I run a small commercial studio on the edge of the South Downs National Park and I carry £2,000,000 public and professional liability insurance. See http://purpleport.com/portfolio/southdowns
Member of The Society of International Fashion and Glamour Photographers, The Guild of Erotic Artists, 500px, Linkedin, Purpleport, Model Mayhem, Madcow, and Purestorm amongst others.
I always supply a full range of proofs and a reasonable selection of fully edited images to models on TF or collaboration work. All I ask is that you credit me please.
