I am a professional artist (painter), art teacher and retired gallery owner. However, I have retired from all but painting and teaching art, I have moved from Portsmouth to West Sussex, and now have the time to get back to my love of photographing and painting the female figure.
I have not been active on here for a few years because of business commitments but I now have the time and desire to get back to photography - both for pleasure and as reference material for my paintings.
I have worked with a few Purpleport models, and some have even modelled for my art classes. I am interested in dance, costume, classic nude, etc. I can offer paid work or a shoot in exchange for photographs and a painting of any picture you choose from our shoot ... I usually only choose one or two for painting so I am more than happy to spend a large part of the time trying to capture the images the model wants.
I am not a young man and have had about 45 years experience as a hobby photographer - but I am best known by many as an artist and especially for my large multiple canvases, "surf wave" paintings that began when I was the resident artist at a Portsmouth Gallery in 2001.
I often paint my figurative work from photographs I have taken of Purpleport models and I am always open to new ideas.
My ideal model can be any age and not necessarily experienced - but must enjoy having her picture taken and I like to work with natural light - so usually on location or in well lit buildings! I have a sense of humour and I am like to have a fun shoot that may not be very organised ... I just like to let things happen and see how things pan out - I can sometimes get an idea to develop for painting and completely change what I had in mind when I started.
