Hello and thank you for viewing my Purpleport profile.
COVID-19 and shooting.
I'm currently happy to shoot out of doors at a suitable social distance. I'd prefer to shoot with models who are local to Birmingham, or, if you're some distance away, models that don't have rely on public transport.
Although photography is a hobby for me, I do take it very seriously. Primarily, I like to photograph people. This may be through a shoot with a model, with a portrait session with non-models, or through a street photography session. I also like to take photographs around the city, and have had several of my cityscapes printed in local publications. Coming up with concepts and picture stories is something I enjoy very much, and a selection of these were printed in a proper, real, book that people can physically buy!
Unfortunately, I no longer have regular use of a studio, so virtually all of my shoots will be out of doors in and around Birmingham city centre. I do know of studios that can be hired, but it's unlikely my budget will stretch to studio hire along with model fees.
Using the city itself as a big open air studio is better than a studio, utilising the wonderful buildings we have in Birmingham as backdrops, or in local parks with the vibrant colours, or the less salubrious areas of the city, all depending on what effect I'm going for. Street portraiture and "cinematic" portraiture are very much my kind of shoots.
I have a growing number of dresses and outfits that I would like to use in shoots. These are of various styles from cute party dresses to "urban gothic" dresses, all of them in size 8 - 10, except one which is a little black dress which is a size 6.
If we do agree to shoot via one of my castings, then your "terms and conditions" do not apply, mine do, but mine are very simple. 1) Read the casting. 2) Reply to castings with more than "I'm interested". I want to know why I should choose you to work with! 3) Turn up. 4) If you fail to turn up, you agree to pay me all my out of pocket expenses for the shoot, such as studio hire, travel expenses, any outfits and props I may have purchased specifically for the shoot. This is not an exhaustive list. I no longer give images away from paid shoots. If you'd like a selection of edited images from paid shoots, then I'm open to discussing a part pay/part tf arrangement and you must mention this in pre-comms. If you fail to show, or cancel within the 72 hour pp guidelines, you will be left the appropriate reference.
So have a browse of my port, love any of the images you like and feel free to suggest any for one of those 'fpi' thingys! And if you'd like to work with me, or have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
