June 2018 - Stage 1: Another extention to the storage area as we have not found a suitable home as yet for the costumes and other things :(
The business plan is in to convert our current location into a community Theatre/Art Centre to include a wide range of productions and community art projects TBA. Our current project is to sort the storage into a state fit for the proposal and to get agreement to proceed to the next stage. This also requires the process of applying for various Grants to support the community scheme which also keeps holding things up
SEPT 2018 - UPDATE
We have managed to create some space in the storage areas, and now have limited space to setup a stage with backgrounds and a few props. So can now shoot using Flash and battery powered lighting of arious kinds.

My Photographic Experience
An experienced photographer for too many years to remember, enjoying the 20th century digital age enabling the opportunity to capture great images of people places and objects seen and composed by the eye of a good or great photographer!
With specific projects being planned I am always looking to expand and develop my skills within a wide range of photographic areas including, portraits, fashion, wildlife, glamour, lingerie, nude, costume, business, events and artistic use. Open to and willing to work and collaborate with models for photo shoots for your portfolio and would enjoy an opportunity to explore specialty effects and features of DSLR photography.
If you are a new model, MUA or Body Painting artist looking to capture images for your portfolio please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your ideas and lets see if we can create some wonderful images together.
Subject to availability and time I am willing to work on portfolio building projects on a mutually FREE understanding for the benefit of each other's portfolio. For the cost of a coffee and cake either in Medway, Canterbury, Bromley, or Kent generally a meeting of minds could well prove fruitful for all. Message and to invite me....
