Unlikely to be Photographing any more (07122018 see below)


Hello

My name is Mark.

I have been interested in Photography ever since I was a child.  I enjoy most styles as a rule.  I will generally consider anything except weddings and I am not keen on macros of insects.

For some styles I like doing Portrait, Landscape, Street and Travel photography.

I am an Royal Photographic Society member and intend to go for the LRPS distinction.  I am presently on an Open University course for the RPS certificate.

I can add after much thought, that I hold the RPS Certificate in Photography from the 1st August 2017.  Whatever that may be worth.

Overall I like portraits especially because they are a moment captured in time.  I do need to take portraits as part of my University course but the more practice the better.  I always find the difficult part getting models or specifically get someone I know to actually do what they said.

I have had success in the past, such as young children and other's including family.  

So hopefully I would be able to get more portrait shoots as that is the one thing i particularly need to work on.

RATES:

£30 per hour

£100 for 4 hours

£200 per day

For Prints of my Photograph's (Framed or Framed and Mounted) A4 is £250, other sizes on request.  

Presently I don't have a Studio or anywhere suitable myself to do Studio work or shoot Indoors.  So normally my shooting will be Outdoors in Natural Light and subject to the Weather.  

Best Wishes


Mark


Note:  While I have will work for trade depending on assignment on my port information.  That is still true, I would consider it depending on the assignment.  At the moment now I must concentrate on paid assignments whether I get bookings or sale of prints.  To be honest at the moment I don't know how long I will be on Purpleport depending on that.  I hope no one will take offence if I have to decline unpaid shoots.  This is proving to be an expensive business and only going in one direction at the moment.  I believe my references and all the other activity is worth something.

No reason for anyone to get discouraged, if you want to contact me for a shoot or a print then please get in touch.


Today is exactly 21 months since I joined Purpleport.  In that time, I have photographed and met, particularly at Socials and even some who to date I have just corresponded with, some wonderful Models, Photographers and people.

I am in no position at all now to Photograph any longer.  Financially or health wise, it is not doing my mind any good especially as I haven’t been able to do anything all year except a single shoot.  I am deeply sad to note many others, photographers, models and studios have the same difficulties.  There is the nasty and unhelpful side but true to all photography, RPS, Clubs, Schools and elsewhere but I prefer to remember the kind side, I know who my friends are.

So, don’t expect me for obvious reasons to post any more unfilled castings, my RPS membership has lapsed now since 1st September 2018 and I don’t know if my website or Flickr page can be kept going.  I don’t photograph with my camera anything like the rate I used to, but I am finding Photography is a very expensive business going exclusively one way which is unsustainable.

Now as per my port, I will consider Pay or Trade depending on the assignmentIt is most likely obviously I will and must charge but there are for some things I may not charge.  There are prices above Rubies. 

Prices are on my port, so I am still interested if you get in touch whether for a print or a shoot.  I typically use Natural Light as limited familiarity with a Studio environment.  I could book a Studio but of course that would be chargeable.  Same at present if you needed me to travel to you, that is also chargeable.  Now if I was able to make a go of this from bookings or sale of prints, then naturally I may be in a position to pay myself for a time but for almost a year I can now no longer do this.

So, if you wish to do some photography and want to work with me, I recommend you do so soon while you still can.  Don’t expect much activity from me on here and my port might go down to free but I will be checking in daily.

To all I have met, corresponded and photographed, I cannot Thank you enough for your kindness and support.  Most things have a price, but Kindness is Priceless!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Mark
