My photography is rather simple, the team is usually just me and a model, and the lighting comes courtesy of the sun. However, I have had many productive and enjoyable shoots when I have also worked with other photographers. I generally find that with another photographer we each learn something off each other, one of us is able to act as lookout while the other one shoots, and sharing costs also makes the shoots more affordable, meaning I can shoot more often :)
For a number of reasons I will be able to shoot more often next year, so given how great my joint shoots have been in the past I am looking at doing more of them in 2018, and also working with new models and models I haven’t worked with for some time, as well as those you’d expect me to work with.
I generally shoot for full days, as well as weekends, long weekends and even longer if the locations merit it. With many budget flights costing less than UK train fares there’s a huge variety of potential locations available throughout Europe, while the UK is also brimming with great places to shoot, especially oop North and Wales and Scotland.
So if you’d be interested in working together, and we have similar photographic expectations, then please do contact me and we can discuss potential models and locations.
In many previous years by now I have had most of my shoots for the following year planned, but my calendar is pretty much a clean slate at the moment. I should warn you that my shoots can often involve quite a bit of walking, shooting in places where the public could suddenly appear, and also getting up for the sunrise which can be extremely early. I was recently reading about a workshop someone was running which they described as ‘slow paced’, let’s just say you probably wouldn’t say that about my shoots :D
We’ll start with an image from my most recent joint shoot with my good friend Randall Hobbett, and the wonderful Lulu Lockhart on a snooker table with pool balls on it, but you probably didn’t notice that ;)
I also had a great shoot earlier in the year with Chris Netton and Jean Fernand, and the talented Rebecca Tun, who came up with the concept for this interesting shot.
I had a really interesting and productive long weekend with four other photographers in Denmark, after being invited by Benny Rytter, and got some great images of the lovely Mischkah, and Joy Draiki.
I feel Mischkah fits in with the environment here so well.
And here’s joy on a Beach, a rather cold beach sadly.
I had a really great time with the beautiful Amanita Storm who was looking positively blooming, and was working with the talented photographer and model Stephanie Pearl.
I had many really enjoyable and extremely productive shoots with talented photographer, and really good friend, Francisca Da Silva. I would visit her in Portugal, and she also visited me in the UK. This particular image of the super Ivory Flame was taken in Portugal
And I’m finishing with 2 images of the superb Anete, from a great shoot with ace location finder Joe Doyle, and new friend Graham Cashell. I feel the lights and shapes in both images work so well.
So, if you are interested in joining me on a shoot in 2018 please do get in touch using my contact form, or any other method you already have of contacting me.
Many thanks to all of the models featured, and I look forward to all the models I’m going to work with next year.
