Constructing an Image - Our aim is to provide the means for you to get your best images ever! We can supply all the pieces of the puzzle, we can assist you to put them together if you want - but it's down to you to provide the end result for yourself! With top models, studio facilities, lighting equipment, locations & assistance, we arrange studio days, workshops and private, assisted one2one and two2one events centered around the model and atmosphere being the whole product, so as we're not big fans of loads of unnecessary props make sure our purist style suits you before you book an event!
To support these aims, I do my best to supply models that are capable of expression and can deliver an image with atmosphere. I also try to hire models that take very little post-processing as I see the art being in the photography, not in the post processing - although I can see the attraction in editing and can assist with this - my main aim is the photograph. The best models are not the cheapest! However, our prices are still competitive!
The studio : I concentrate mainly on fashion (with a bit of art nude too) where the model and/or clothes are the focal point entirely, for sets like bedroom etc. you want one of the big glamour studios, I keep my premises to something that is easily enough room to work in. For me it's the thrill of a strong, edgy fashion shot in black and white, so that's what I point a lot of the studio days towards. Have a look at my fashion gallery on the website, the studio shot's were all done here.
Of course this is down to each persons needs and requirements, for example people wanting bedroom glamour wouldn't come here. We also have the Welsh country side and 2 small towns to use too.
For : photographers of all levels of skill and experience, beginners - we'll help! Pro's - we'll assist you!
There's no better way to spend your day than with a couple of like-minded photographer friends and a top model - pure therapy! We'll provide everything, you just book in advance and turn up with your camera!
MODELS : Please note that as a self-employed contractor you are not covered by my employers liability insurance, you must have your own insurance, we do have public liability.
COVID SAFETY : We have now introduced the Rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen test to our health and safety precautions. Models without proof of vaccination will be asked to take the test upon arrival, photographers will also need proof of vaccination or will be asked to take the test too (subject to temperature reading). It's a simple nasal swab with a very quick result. Hopefully this is a temporary precaution but I'm sure we will all feel the additonal comfort from this procedure.
STUDIO DAYS - for Serious Photographers looking to progress -
4 photographers and a model (of our usual high standard of course!) 10am-4pm with 1 hour lunch (which you provide yourself, we'll provide tea & coffee) All workshops incorporate timed one2one's with our model to ensure equal opportunity per photographer. Enjoy the social learning advantage too, chat to others about camera's, lighting, get tips from how others work etc. etc! These events are aimed at the serious photographer looking to progress and work with top models, assistance available when required. Usually £125 per person (model dependant)
one2one and two2one assisted events pricing :
£250 including model, assistance, lighting and all facilities (for two people this equates to just £31.25 per hour for a top model and assistance for 4 hours!) about.......
