I'm back to shoot again after a few years out (having escaped the clutches of an abusively controlling wife!). My creative photography is both a passion and a discipline through which my commercial work has improved hugely. So I'm looking forward to developing this further.
My portfolio can speak for itself. My process is mostly made up on the hoof by trial and error, through which I'm gradually discovering my own style. This is based on the play of light, bodily angles, and relationships to settings. I generally favour working outdoors with a portable monolight or natural light, but have a decent studio set up. Much of the final image is achieved in post-processing. But to be honest, anything good is mostly due to the brilliant models I've had the pleasure and honour to work with.
For creative photography I mostly work with female models, but am also open to males, couples, groups, etc. I can fully direct if you're less experienced. Unusual or quirky looks are good, but if you're just pure damn gorgeous, that's fine too. I prefer you to bring your own personality into the process, especially if it lets me explore new ideas or challenges. I also want to explore more erotic or fetish themes (though not clichéd glamour). So if you have a specialised interest, or know some incredible location, I'd love to hear from you.
This is an expensive hobby paid for out of my own pocket. It's always good to hear from models wanting to swap TFP because I love collaborating. If I find you especially interesting I can pay a moderate fee or expenses. Please state your rates up front and I'll say yes or no. I prefer half day shoots, to not feel rushed.
I always behave respectfully (check my references below). I won't push your 'levels' or invade personal space. A shoot should be both fun and interesting for all involved and I get on with most people: if you're not totally comfortable with me, and quite enjoying yourself, the images are unlikely to be great, so we're both wasting our time.
I can also accommodate travelling models. You get your own bedroom, with no monkey business, in exchange for a short casual shoot. Alternatively I may have an adjoining luxury AirBnB available at knock-down rates.
Finally, I'm always looking for models both for commercial garment shoots, but note this is usually TFP or just a modest fee. Feel free to contact me, including to collaborate with MUAs, stylists, events, etc. For this work I'm especially always looking for handsome or distinguished looking males!
I generally reply to all messages.
