All plans are now on hold indefinitely due to being made redundant recently,local shoots may go ahead again at some point but this "double whammy" will prevent any non-essential outlay on travel or studio fees.
Corona-virus Update:..Firstly, Sorry guys but ALL our shibari and bodyscape tours planned for this year are now on hold as are the majority of our shoots
I have been mainly shooting Wildlife, especially birds of prey, for many years and felt I needed a new challenge and direction with my work in `14. The wildlife photographer in me much prefers outdoor settings but I`ve done some studio stuff too, though still prefer to use natural light when possible.
I do sometimes shoot with my Wife, Dawn Q, also a tog here on PP, it does depend on location though we do often trundle all over the UK. We often share a shoot together with one assisting the other shooting, especially when we are away from home area. With our boudoir and fet shooting style subjects can be anonymous if they desire OR have any tattoos, piercings, yep even faces - crisply captured. We have an ever increasing prop collection too from voiles to pearls to even a gas mask! As well as plenty of flashguns, lights and reflectors etc.
I am also a Shibari Rigger,with an ever increasing range of ties,so if that's something that interests you please contact either myself or Dawn...All Genders welcome,and you don't need to be nude either..
If we shoot TF or I do part-pay/TF you you will get your edited photos within two weeks via Dropbox or a secure online passworded gallery . I often work with models more than once though it won't happen again if I'm not credited with creating the photos used in your portfolios as I consider that to be just plain rude - I respect my models and ask for same. Only my best photography will be good enough and I always endeavour to improve on my last shoot and images.
Why do I love shooting TF? I prefer it because it's more informal. I am not doing this to make money, usually costs me in fact but to increase my skills I just love to create shots the model wants to try out or to inmprove their portfolio or just to see the outfits they like that no tog so far will try mainly because we BOTH have less time/financial pressures during a shoot and both parties have the same goals - to try out new ideas, be creative and just enjoy the shoot. Ideal way to increase both our portfolios and try new ideas at same time.
As I am gaining experience,my confidence is growing too, shot possibilities are unfolding where before they were hidden,I see this as progress and hopefully 2020 will bring more and varied opportunities to my lens.
Personally I consider that all shoots should be fun and I'm open to model's suggestions,looking forward to working with more fellow Purple Porters ,let`s see where this roller coaster takes us!.
Yes it REALLY is about creating better photography for me.
