Many years in photography, but mostly scientific, technical, wildlife, landscape, ..., with some commercial, and a few newspaper and wedding shoots. Photography for web sites.

Only been dabbling in portraits, figure and glamour photography for three years. Loving the challenge (e.g. lighting, skin tone) and opportunities of these genres. I have been lucky enough to meet some great models, with charming personalities.

I would describe my style as naturalistic: preferring informal shots, where a model is smiling or laughing to more static 'posed' shots. So I don't tend to spend a lot of time planning a shot or setting it up. Quite a lot of mediocre shots, with the odd really fortuitous natural picture, as a result. And, yes, I am mad!

I give my models copies of images, and am happy to help fill gaps in their portfolios. I would be particularly interested in more unusual shoots (e.g. athletics, gymnastics, sport, dancing). I would also be interested in trying out some video and 3D photography in the next year or so.

Note: I have a few rules (which I hope are not onerous)

  1. Neither mode (nor myself) will 'publish' (i.e. make publicly visible) an image unless both the model and I agree that we are happy with it being made public.
  2. If any model appears to be 21 or under, I will require valid proof of age to be given before any photographs are taken on the first shoot between us. I will not shoot with anyone who is under 18. This is for both our protection and I hope you agree it is appropriate.
  3. Copyright in images resides in me, unless a specific contract releases copyright to the model.

I am happy to provide a paper copy of these conditions to any model.

My 'zeroth' rule (that the shoot must be fun for both parties) is implicit of course!
