COVID UPDATE: Given that Covid is rife out there and that we're in lockdown, I'm not shooting at the moment. Whenever I get back to shooting it will only be occasionally at first and it will be as safe as possible. I have a spacious indoor location (about 15m x 6m) where social distancing is no problem, and when shooting there all necessary Covid precautions are obviously taken. One thing I need to point out... It will be essential that models have their own transport to get here. I wouldn't want anyone to use public transport at the moment, and I prefer not to give anyone a lift anywhere as that would mean two people sitting in close proximity in the car.
When I resume shooting I'll be looking for:
a) a model who has short fashion-style hair
b) a model who can pull off (and style) a pin-up look
And now, on with the usual stuff...
In the ten or so years that I've been doing this I've done nearly 700 shoots with about 300 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, but some weekdays are occasionally do-able.
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.
I'VE GOT A DRESSING-UP BOX!: Hang on. That sounds a bit odd. :) Let me elaborate... I have quite a lot of clothes and accessories that can be used for shoots. They include hand-made corsets, latex, posh frocks, shoes and all sorts of stuff. The items are well looked after and are kept clean - it's not 'falling apart at the seams' tat. (Quite a lot of the clothing seen in my pictures actually belongs to me.) So if you want to use some of my stuff as well as your own stuff, that could add a bit of variety to a shoot.
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 895 pixels wide). Sorry, but I do not do prints.
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 - 2021: Advance planning... Covid permitting, during each of the following weeks I'll be looking for one or maybe two outdoor shoots in visually interesting locations. So if you'd be up for a shoot and if you know of suitable locations, please get in touch.
