Fashion, Lingerie, Nude and Portrait
If in a rush just read the bold, but I prefer to shoot with people who have fully considered their options! I've just moved and am new to Walsall, and probably shooting a reduced amount in the coming months while I sort out my new home.
Who I'll shoot with:
I've shot with a wide variety of models and intend to keep doing so. Typically I prefer female models between size 8 and 12 and male models with a toned/athletic figure, not overly beefed up. Having a different body type does not mean I won't shoot with you, but it does mean we will need quite a specific idea to suit your body type. Anyone over 40 isn't out of the question either but would similarly need a strong creative idea.
I typically approach new models as I feel my personal skills are suited to bringing out the best shots with them and I have more to offer them in terms of improving their portfolio. If you're an experienced model with a strong portfolio and would like to shoot tf with me then I'm incredibly flattered, please send me a direct message to let me know as I won't believe it otherwise.
Where I Shoot:
I am now in Walsall, a 10-15 minute walk from the train and bus stations, and a 5 minute drive from junction 10 of the M6. Once I have my home sorted I will be able to shoot from my home studio, please see my albums for examples of what I can do in a plain studio environment. As my home evolves there will no doubt be opportunities to produce a variety of different shots in a home context. I also have outdoor locations locally ideal for a range of shots. Feel free to make your favourite drink/biscuit known in advance. I can bring lighting to your home if you have enough space, and can travel anywhere that is reasonably manageable by public transport, although I'm unlikely to agree to a journey of more than 90 minutes from my door to yours. Location shoots when it's not raining and not too cold are very welcome.
What I offer:
Relaxed and respectful TFP shoots where you will have an equal input into the direction of the shoot if wanted. You will receive a minimum of 8 (but often more) fully edited shots delivered by email by the end of the second weekend after our shoot. General themes and levels are always agreed in advance, but I will always sit down with you first for a chat and to look through some photos and everything you've brought together to then formulate a more specific joint plan. My photos were shot mostly with new and inexperienced models, and for better or worse I have never attended a studio day or even seen another photographer shoot, so all lighting etc in my photos is set up by me. Therefore my portfolio reflects the quality you can expect. If you're a new model be cautious of photographers advertising themselves for tfp with photos mainly taken on studio days or with experienced models.
What I don't offer:
I make absolutely no claims about how I can help you gain money, social media attention, credibility or FPIs - I shoot purely for the joy and reward of creating photos we can be proud of. I've heard many first hand accounts of photographers with only numerous positive references who levels push and indulge in other inappropriate behaviour on shoot, particularly with new models they perceive to be naïve - you won't find that with me.
If you find any of the above claims to be untrue, please walk out of the shoot, leave me a 'not recommended' reference and report me to Purpleport. Please extend the same courtesy to any other photographer who treats you inappropriately or breaks the site rules. Please feel free to contact any model I have worked with to check the reference they have left is genuine. I am quite happy for you to make phone contact with friends/family during a shoot to reassure them of where you are, your safety and comfort.
