Portrait Avant Garde Photographer of the Year 2016. I am a professional photographer (what does this mean, it means that I have earned my living from photography since I left school in the 1970s.)
I am semi-retired (what does this mean, it means that I now pick and choose my work more carefully, and I put aside time to shoot to please myself)
Please note I only pay models when a client is paying me for the shoot,in which case I will be contacting you as I will be wanting a specific look.
Booking a Shoot: If you want to shoot with me, note I do this for a living so prefer to be paid, but I'm willing to collaborate with models with interesting looks / ideas for their portfolio on a TF basis, if I think it will benefit both our portfolios.
If you are interested in working with me, ask. I don't bite, but please take note of what I am interested in shooting (see below) and let me know why you would like to collaborate and what it is you have to offer.
Once you've booked a shoot please ensure you honour it. If you need to cancel, please make sure you give at least 24 hours notice and re-book within 48 hours.
I have my own base 'The Mill House' to shoot from with large fairly secluded garden with derelict windmill tower and large pond in grounds, period house with bathroom with roll top bath, and bedroom with brass bed. See album 'The Mill House' http://purpleport.com/portfolio-image-album.asp?id=25451
I also have portable lights, background etc. which I can bring to you for home or location shoot. For boudoir shoots I prefer to use a natural set rather than relying on sterile looking studio settings.
Before booking a shoot please ensure, if we are shooting at yours, that's it available and free of distractions.
Communication: Once booked you should stay contactable and exchange phone numbers.
I will require that you sign a model release form, and have ID as proof of over 18.
Projects I'm interested in shooting at the moment:These are personal projects for my portfolio, and will consider TF. Please get in touch if you are interested in collaborating in any of these projects. It will help if you can do the vintage look for the Hollywood / Noir projects.
