Greetings and welcome to my little shrine.
I've been on here for a couple of years, mainly to seek out models I'm interested in working with, while I work on my shooting and editing skills. Now I want to actually start working with people.
I'm primarily interested in cosplay, styles which celebrate the female form -- boudior, art/implied topless and nude, and swimwear -- alternative fashion and fetish/bondage/kink-friendly photography. I'm also open to portrait and fashion photography, especially if it's with someone who wants to get comfortable with a photographer before they'll do more revealing styles of shoots.
I would say that I have a preference for shooting outdoors however I'm also quite used to shooting indoors. I enjoy shooting in a wide variety of locations, from natural to urban to the unusual and would be very keen to do shoots involving waterfalls, abandoned buildings and graveyards.
I'm mainly looking for trade work just now as a way to build up my portfolio and get experience of working with models. I currently work a full time job so my availability is usually limited to evenings and weekends but I'm always happy to hear from people who want to work with me. I hope to have some more flexibility with my availability towards the end of 2020 after I have relocated to London for my Master's degree, so watch this space.
Which reminds me: I appreciate that working with a new person could make anyone uncomfortable or nervous so I'm very happy if you want to bring a friend/buddy/chaperone. I will try to remember to mention this while discusing a shoot but feel free to mention it first if you want. Safety is also important, especially if we're shooting in a remote, derelict or unfamiliar location.
Ultimately, I want whoever I'm working with to be completely at ease during the shoot so please don't be afraid to interrupt/stop proceedings or raise concerns. Please don't be afraid to mention any personal circumstances such as medical conditions prior to a shoot either. We are all just human after all. I myself have arthritis which can sometimes limit my mobility so please bear with me during a shoot if it looks like I'm having trouble moving around.
Anyways, I think that's enough talking from me for now. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to discuss a shoot, especially if you're in my "People I'd Like To Work With" list, and I look forward to hearing from you.
