I've been interested in photography for many years, but only recently have started wanting to extend myself beyond the "mere" hobbyist into a more focussed approach. Whilst I don't have any intention to take this up professionally, I do want to extend my skills beyond where they currently are. I have a lot to learn and I look forward to the trip, whether I learn via classes and workshops, and/or via interacting with the models I do work with.

Who am I? I'd like to think I am reasonably intelligent, approachable, sensitive, but above all happy. In the 90's there was a cliché about the "90's man". I have a feeling I am that cliché.

I am a baby boomer (when was the point where baby boomers became old?!), although I've been told by almost everybody that I meet that I neither look "old" nor act it. We all have only one time guaranteed on this planet, and I would like to spend it as pleasantly as I can.

In regards to what I would like to reach for when working with a model... I think that the word that encapsulates it right now is "femininity". That is not to say that I won't get into punchier shots at times, but what I love doing is to explore the core femininity of a model.

For me, this all starts with the face. The face is our window to the world. It provides so many non-verbal signals, and I want to work with models to explore that. I also love things like great skin, light summer dresses, big floppy sun hats, well cut gowns, glasses, stockings and lace, and will tend to use these a lot during my shoots (depending on the focus of the shoot obviously).

Some of the more mundane things:-

  • I'm doubly vaccinated and I'm happy to perform whatever covid-safe practices will help to relax the model I'm working with. I'm happy to keep socially distant and mask up if a model needs me to. If the cyclists on the Tour de France can ride hundreds of miles each day masked up - well, it won't kill me! That being said, I would prefer to not be masked, as communication is better without it.

  • I have a car (well, it's a Peugeot 107, but it pretends to be a car...), so I can get around pretty easily.

  • If a model would be happier to have a chaperone for a shoot, then I am generally fine with this. Please advise me about this during the pre-comms where we can discuss the chaperone.

    Chaperones can give a degree of protection to both model and photographer. A chaperone can also help a model relax during our time together, which in turn has to improve any images and make for a more pleasant time together generally.

    However I reserve the right to cut the shoot short if the chaperone poisons the shoot or otherwise adversely distracts the model during the shoot.

  • Also, I do have a life outside this which I need to juggle, and I don't expect to be going berserk trying to catch up with all the years I've missed whilst not being here. At the moment I aim to be in one shoot a month for the foreseeable future.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch!
