I am a part-time photographer. I have been teaching at secondary school level for the past 24 years, and over the course of my teaching career I have always prided myself on my personable and approachable nature and my ability to empathise, and these skills are now finding a new outlet when working with models, especially those with little experience, as you will see from my references. My real passion in photography is for fashion, whether it be on location or in the studio.
Full photosets from my shoots can be found on my website at https://www.planetflux.co.uk/fashion-beauty
Aesthetically, my style is in a constant state of flux. Last year I moved towards using a lot of warmth and vibrance. However, more recently I have started to ease back on this, but I still love to make my colours pop where appropriate. More than anything else, I am keen to empower the women who appear in my images. The work of Marc Lagrange, Vivienne Mok and Ellen Von Unwerth in particular are having a huge influence on my ideas at the moment.
My head is brimming with ideas and influences and I am in the process of planning a few large, extended projects. I also hope to create more images in the style to some of the classic 1990s images featuring Kate Moss et al, and some crazy, fashion images inspired by the likes of Von Unwerth, Tim Walker and others. I am building Pinterest boards for some of my ideas and styles that excite me. My public boards are very much a work in progress and can be seen at https://www.pinterest.co.uk/planetfluxphotography
Please don't be afraid to approach me for a collaborative shoot as I don't bite, but please also don't be offended if I choose not to collaborate with you. If I add you to my "Would like to work with list" then that means I am interested in shooting with you on a collaborative basis. Otherwise, please message me on here or on my Instagram account (@planetflux) or see my website (www.planetflux.co.uk) for my rates.
Shooting with me
I feel that a collaboration should involve ideas shared by all parties taking part and I regularly use shared Pinterest boards to plan shoots with models. The most important thing for any shoot I do is that the model should feel safe and comfortable, and it should be fun for everyone involved. I will always respect your levels - just because I might shoot lingerie or nude with one model does not mean I expect that from any other shoot. If we agree a level beforehand and then come the shoot you don’t feel comfortable working to that level there you will not see me sulk or try to persuade you otherwise. For collaborative shoots, I also have a personal rule whereby for any shoot involving lingerie or levels higher I do not post any image online without the approval of the model concerned.
Thank you for taking time to read through my profile and look at my portfolio.
