In the ten years I've been doing this I've done about 500 shoots with more than 200 different models. All the models have survived.
Being a creaky, decrepit old git with a woeful lack of energy, I've now cut down to just three or four shoots each month. But please don't let that deter you from getting in touch; if a shoot would be of interest at some time in the future, please give me a kick and I'll get back to you.
Your age, experience and dress size are not important. (As for any upper age limit, if you still have a pulse, that's good enough for me.) The things that ARE important are your enthusiasm and reliability.
I do all-day shoots - roughly 10/10.30am to about 4.30pm. It's a long day, but it enables us to work on a variety of ideas at a steady pace. Usual shoot days are Saturdays and Sundays.
EDITS: From a TF shoot I aim to supply at least one or two edited pics from each sequence we do. Short of any unforeseen disaster you will get them within a week of the shoot. These edits will be finished ready for web use and will be sized accordingly (usually 895mp). Sorry, but I do not do prints.
LOCATION and GETTING HERE: My usual indoor (i.e. heated!) shoot location is in a small village near Frome in north-east Somerset. That's about 15 miles south of Bath and 25 miles south-east of Bristol. But please note... The village in which the shoot location is situated does not have any public transport, so if you're travelling to me it's a major advantage if you have your own transport.
If you don't have your own transport my nearest stations are Frome, which has local services, and Bath, which has fast, direct trains from London Paddington. I can sometimes (but please note the word 'sometimes') give a lift from those stations; so if you're in London I'm not out of reach.
CHAPERONES: Despite my flexibility about all sorts of things, there's one thing about which there is no flexibility. Unless you are under 18 I will not have a chaperone on site during a shoot. That's non-negotiable. If you feel that you need a chaperone, that implies that you do not trust me. I have no wish to work with someone who regards me as a potential threat to their safety.
OUT AND ABOUT - 2019:
