I have been a photographer for 30 years, mainly part time but recently more full time. I am experienced in location and studio shooting. I have covered events, weddings and landscapes and taken photographs for websites (wine consultancy and landscaping).
A lot of my work in recent years has been involved with our clothes enterprise and exhibitions to raise money for a charity (Cots for Tots House in Bristol)
To this end I joined Purple Port at the end of 2017 and since then I have had the pleasure of meeting some lovely highly skilled and creative people (both models and photographers). There are some very talented and kind people on here, so I am taking this opportunity to thank other togs for their advice and all the models I have shot with for giving of their time and considerable talent; sometimes even buying clothes or donating their clothes for the charity. I have enjoyed every shoot and had lots of fun. My sincerest appreciation goes to all. I particularly enjoyed facilitating Jade Alexandra Model and Laura Loveless achieving a long held ambition of being able to shoot as a duo.
There are several models I have had multiple shoots with (thanks for your patience!) and at the time of writing Hannah Clare, Lauren, Leigh, Megan, Katy, Claudia, Skye and Claire have racked up a total of 50 shoots between them! I hope in the coming months to do more with all of them and others and meet some new faces.
Recently I had a series of shoots with Lauren Elfvy who is huge fun to shoot with as well as being adventurous and creative. She offered to be a principal model for me and humbled me by suggesting I become her main photographer. I mention this as she has been extremely helpful to our work, going above and beyond. This arrangement is not to imply any exclusivity on her or my part, but I do recommend her very highly along with many other models I have shot with. I also will be looking to shoot with my "regulars" and look to work with more new talents (experienced or brand new to the profession).
As well as shooting our clothes for the charity, I have 2 projects on the go.
1) Portrayals of the 7 Deadly Sins and 7 Heavenly Virtues
2) Vin Rude exploring the transmission of light through wine and contrasting the shape and form of wine glasses and the human form
Both of these will form exhibitions to raise money in 2019 and 2020.
As for me, I am chilled relaxed on shoots and always aim for something a little quirky and different. The most important outcome in any shoot is that the model enjoys herself and has fun and feels confident enough to let his/her creativity flourish. I too am keen to meet new talents and explore new ideas
