Hi! I'm Simon and I take pictures - sometimes for money, sometimes for art but mainly for fun.

Acrobat : Juggler : Mathematician : Photographer : Lighting Tutor

I've done lots of tricksy lighting-led shoots in the past. I'm trying to park that stuff a bit to concentrate on the content. I'm open to TF shoots, especially where the concept fits one of my main themes.

I do occasionally pay models. Not often, and I'll probably approach you. In other words - feel free to drop me a line but I may say 'no'.

It's not you, it's me, ok?


Things I want to shoot

Editorial Sets

On a variety of themes, in a variety of styles

Natural Portaits

If you've got a subtle-but-intense natural modelling style then drop me a line.

Dance Shoots

I'm looking to shoot working, highly trained dancers, especially contemporary dancers, contortionists and street dancers.  I'm not looking to photograph models who've taught themselves pointe, nor models who've learned a handful of commercial moves.

Expressive Nudes

Somewhere between art nude & portrait

Vintage Hollywood Glamour

If you really look the part then I'd love to hear from you. I've spent some time researching & practicing the techniques of the era & know some vintage specialist hair & mua folk. If you've got visible tattoos then you're probably not suitable for this.


Tuition


I offer 1-1 and small group lighting tuition

I have a methodical approach and I'm an experienced teacher. I work hard to teach understanding rather than a handful of setups & tailor my teaching to your individual requirements. Some examples of workshops I can offer:

  • Studio & portraiture lighting basics
  • Working with dancers, acrobats, polers & aerialists
  • Vintage Hollywood lighting
  • Balancing ambient light & flash
  • Combining flash & constant lights with motion
  • White backgrounds & high key

I have my own lighting and studio. The studio is a shared dance studio. I mainly have access on Friday afternoons and evenings but also some weekends.

I sometimes get FPIs. I make stuff to please myself & my models, not the FPI elves, and I'm invariably chuffed and surprised when it happens. Anyway, click the badge if that kind of thing interests you..
