I am very passionate about what I do and how I do it and I spend hours planning , taking and processing my photographs. I value feedback and criticism and have a particular afinity with photographing people. The genres that I prefer are Beauty, fashion, dance and art nude. I have been awarded a licentiate of the RPS and the SWPP and am a semi-professional photographer. I have been on many bespoke training courses and I have worked with some great photographers and models and I believe that improvements come through hard work and dedication.
I am experienced in Lightroom and Photoshop and I have my own studio lighting and can shoot at home or on location. I particularly like quirky and generally like to work in colour although black and white Hollywood glamour is a great favourite of mine. I am starting to experiment with different processes and finishes and am becoming very interested in platinum/palladium printing because of the great tonal range that it gives to a black and white print.
I have many influences from both the present and the past but am trying to develop my own style in the work that I do. I am a very friendly and respectful person and like to take my time creating images so shoots are generally structured but relaxed. I like to have regular breaks and discussions with the model throughout the shoot so that we can truly collaborate on producing something special and a little different from the norm.
2019 Update: Please do not contact me directly for shoots as I am in poor health at the moment and need at least three operations so my shoots will be very limited during this year. I have plenty of images to re-edit so will keep posting and share my love for your images but please do not send out of the blue requests that you are in my area and do I want to shoot as the response for the time being will be a polite no.
