About me

I am a 61-year-old professional painter and I use photography, especially of people, in a lot of my work.

I usually work for trade and offer the photographs and maybe a painting of your favourite picture (typically a painting will require about 30 to 40 hours of work) in return for a shoot but part payment can be included if travelling or a long shoot is required.

I can provide references from many models I have worked with in the art classes I run and photoshoots over many years.

I am easygoing and often happy to do what you want if you have anything in mind or want photographs for your portfolio.

I get my inspiration from many things and am always happy to listen to ideas and shoot everything from nude to costume.

Fashion is not really my thing (especially at my age) but if I think I will get something worth painting from it I am happy to give it a go.

I love natural light photography, indoors or out, and a location shoot would always be my first choice. I shoot anything arty and the more flexible approach the model has to styles and ideas the better because I am more interested in variety than quantity.

I do paint tasteful female "nude" figure work from time to time, so please don't be offended if I ask if you would be happy to do a few such shots when I first contact you. I would not ask on the day of the shoot if it had not already been agreed beforehand.

All my work needs to be artistic, tasteful and suitable for family homes so I would never ask or expect anybody to pose for anything crude or sexual but models that are comfortable with some arty body shots could be useful if the right situation for that type of shot arose - possibly a naked back shot paddling in the river or an embarrassed looking model with her blouse blowing open in the breeze for example.

I would not consider myself as a typical photographer because my interest is using pictures to paint from and my needs and requirements are not quickfire fashion type photography, more carefully composed good quality images, and I don't always have a fixed plan - so maybe I am not a typical photographer in the way I work.
