Alternative, Beauty, Cosplay, Fashion and Portrait
I am a photographer (although not my main job), specialising in creative portraits. I mainly work TFP, although I take the odd paid assignment. Happy to work with models of all levels of experience. Black and white portraits to start off with, but moved into using colour and gels much more these days. Large, well-equipped home studio. Studio lights with lots of modifiers, ring-flash, and U.V. lights.
I have several other possible shooting areas around the house including a swimming pool, numerous locations within walking distance, and easy access to even more fantastic locations in South Wales (e.g. beaches, woods, waterfalls and the odd urbex). Whatever the arrangements, my shoots are always fun, with an emphasis on creativity. I also organise shoots for other photographers (and models), so please enquire if interested in this.
If you would like to shoot something for publication with a particular magazine in mind, I am happy to tailor the shoot to the style they like. Trade shoot images not intended for publication are always returned within two weeks (unless an unusually large amount are required).
Chaperones are welcome so long as they are happy to double up as light stands, smoke machine operators etc. However, taking shots of the model over my shoulder for your own use is NOT permitted, unless I invite you to do so. If you take any "background" shots which feature me, please do not post them without my permission. Could you also let me know if you are bringing someone along - just out of politeness.
I am DBS checked (enhanced).
Over 80 publications, with 15 front covers. Full list available on request. I do not post images on here any more, but have plenty on instagram. PP rules do not allow me to post a link, but if you message me I can provide it so you can see more of my work.
Terms and conditions:
If you would like to collaborate for trade, I will deliver 10-20 images edited to a professional standard within two weeks. If it is a TFP shoot, we both get the images to use. No money changes hands, in either direction. Please do not book a TFP shoot, and then inform me I cannot use the photos myself. I will happily delete images you are not happy with, but if you want exclusive use of the images you need to pay.
Images for publication cannot be posted before the publication is out. This is a stipulation made by virtually every magazine and they will simply pull the images if they see them posted.
Please do not contact me asking to shoot because you "like my work", and then drop in at the last minute that you want to be paid. If you try this, I will not shoot with you.
If I contact you requesting a shoot, that usually means I am offering to pay.
If there is something specific you are looking for, please let's discuss this before the shoot.
I book hardly any shoots via PP these days, but if you do want to contact me on here please feel free to do so.
