About Me: My work has been widely published over the last 40 years, particularly in the 80’s - 2000’s. Thesedays, I only tend to work with models that share a vision of creative collaboration and have a proven record of achieving ‘high-end’ results.

My Work Ethos: I believe that every image worthy of inclusion in a portfolio should be beautifully crafted and have a clear degree of artistic merit. I strive to achieve that by planning every shoot meticulously; arranging shoots well in advance and working hard with the model to produce a quality of work that we both can be proud of.

Levels: Levels will always be clearly agreed prior to each shoot and be appropriate for the task at hand. I will *never* push for anything over what has been agreed in advance.

Themes/Ideas: The work that I am currently producing is wide and varied, and includes themed shoots with specially constructed sets and props. With styles ranging from Portraiture to Alternative through to Art-nude and Erotica, there is certainly something in my ‘to do’ list that will suit every type of model and every level and style of work.

Latest Project: I'm currently planning a few shoots influenced by the art of Gil Elvgren, which will require specially built sets in some cases - Please inbox me if you think you could fit the bill!

What I Do... Quality, classy, artistic, glamorous and sometimes erotic photography that enhances the portfolios of both the model and myself. I always plan shoots well in advance, and will usually provide models with a detailed shootplan with ideas and examples to work towards.

What I Don’t Do...  'In your face' unnecessarily crude images & cliched ‘cheesy’ snaps.

Misc Stuff... I am happy to work in studios, from my own or model’s homes, or any other locations the model feels confident to shoot in. However, many of my planned shoots these days tend to be specifically selected high quality studios, or at private indoor and outdoor locations.

I *always* insist on releases to be signed, even if just as a record of a shoot.

Every shoot should also be fun, so expect some weird music and randomness when working with me!

TFP: I *will* consider some TFP projects with {usually experienced} models, but only if the model is willing to fit in with the work ethos above. However, be warned; I tend to work models hard at shoots, but I feel the results are always worthy of the extra effort we both put in.
