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
On a variety of themes, in a variety of styles
If you've got a subtle-but-intense natural modelling style then drop me a line.
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.
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.
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..
