Sorry, I am not booking models right now, while I pursue other things. Thanks for stopping by!
"What a lovely and incredibly talented person! From the second I arrived he was welcoming, organised, full of ideas and very, very creative! We got on well right away and it's always great to work with a photographer who lets me perfect my poses and re-shoot if I think I can do it better; Rich was one of these and the results in the back of the camera really showed this. They look fantastic and he really has a recognisable trademark style. I'd recommend Rich 100% and really look forward to working together again"
"Rich is incredibly respectful, laid back and exactly what you want from a photographer and someone to spend 4 hours with. His knowledge and passion for lighting his shots correctly is inspiring, and makes working with him an effortless task as a model, being able to focus on your posing and chatting all the way through was a blessing!"
"Another wonderful shoot with Rich in his home studio this time, you can really Tell that he is passionate about his work and takes photography very seriously and is also extremely friendly and easy to get along with... I seriously think this lovely gent and talented photographer will go far. Thanks again, Rich! Would recommend to any model"
I have an HND in Photography, from back in the film and darkroom days. I've worked professionally as a designer for around 15 years, and practiced photography on and off for 3 years. If you work with me, you will quickly get a sense of my passion for creativity; I'll be able to describe my vision for our shoot and adapt depending on the situation and the look of the model, I enjoy collaborating and exchanging creative ideas!
I am based a little North East of Glasgow, in the Clackmannanshire area; which is about 45 mins via train from Glasgow, or 60 mins from Edinburgh to Alloa train station. I prefer to shoot in my own good sized, and well equipped home studio space whenever possible*
*Please note that I have a dog, she's an Australian Labradoodle, which is somewhat of a specialised hypoallergenic breed, different to standard Labradoodles (I am allergic to pretty much every furry animal you can think of, but not her). I keep her out of the way during shoots; but if you're a dog person, she will be your friend, and she's been a big hit with all the models I've worked with so far!
Fair use policy:
When I am paying a model for their services, I expect that I retain the image rights. By accepting money from me for your services, I will assume you're in agreement with my fair use policy which may include (but not limited to) selling prints, publishing images with online or physical magazines, or using images for promotional materials on my website and social media, although selling my images is not my primary driver for this kind of work; I do it for enjoyment and as a form of creative expression and practice, first and foremost... but I'd like the option to publish, though.
I always tag models when I post my images online, whether it's here or social media, so that credit is provided for their efforts, but I rarely provide copies of images for free. I don't believe any skilled creative professional should give away their work for free, whether it be models, designers, hair and makeup artists or photographers, we all deserve to be paid for our hard work, and industry knowledge.
