I am interested in taking photographs of, usually females - and looking at my Portfolio, it seems mostly unclothed to some extent, although I am trying some sort of fashion and mild fetish work. Quite what sort of photographs, I really often don't know. I am continually surprised by the results. Only I like them, but essentially, I want to do the photographs that work in some way for the model. I mostly don't succeed in producing what I have in my head, but practice as they say, makes perfect.
I have taken photographs for 40 plus years in all genres but have enjoyed the discipline of photographing models over the last 2 years.
Although I use Studios, I now have a reasonably well equipped home studio and a large garden for work outside. There is a lovely wood at the bottom of the garden which provides masses of location possibilities.
I try not to follow straightforward shots but perhaps be just a bit different. There are a lot of models out there that I am keen to work with. It's just time and money that one needs!
I am looking to work with "interesting" models and to attempt to create "interesting" images. If I ask you to work with me, please do look at my Portfolio as I am producing more and more " dark and intimate" work which sometimes even I am not sure I like.
There are whole genres that I am unable to do and so have put up examples to illustrate this. I don't even try straight head and shoulders portraits and I struggle with "Glamour" and "Boudoir". I also have some quirky bees in my bonnet about techniques that most other photographers regard as essential. e.g. outdoor fill flash - but also others.
I usually expect to pay my models and give them shots from the shoot. However, these will be be the shots I like and not necessarily those the model may like. I really do not do TF work, so do not ask, but sometimes, rarely - very rarely - I co-operate with a model I know well, if they request a particular type of shoot.
Having done mostly studio flash work I am now doing more available light shots - both low and high ISO. Done lots of this in the past, but not with models.
