I am a hobbyist photographer who is passionate about taking photos of landscapes and people. I was born in London, but now live in the picturesque Exmoor, with a beautiful wife and two daughters.
I started photography using the old 35mm film cameras just shooting everyday life photos, but over the years and the introduction of digital cameras, have started to be more interested in how to use the camera and lighting. I am enthusiastic about learning different aspects within photography and the camera by using all the available functions and settings that are accessible.
I have just started shooting models which I find a totally new thrilling concept and have been asked to shoot friends and alike; this helps me gain experience as it provides me with the opportunity to be creative and try out new ideas. I have also taken great interest in doing family portraits as well as taking photographs of people within the beautiful landscape and using the natural light.
I am eager to work with new models to build up their portfolio or for their own use such as, uploading to social websites and am willing to listen to any styles or designs that they propose; this again will help me expand my knowledge on different methods of photography and props that can be used. I am also looking to further my experience with working in the company of professional models that have their own creations and techniques to help expand my portfolio.
I can either operate by TF (time for prints), on to CD, upload onto a USB stick* (*supplied by you) or email them. Or I can accept a paid basis which is mutually acceptable. All under 18 year olds I expect to be chaperoned. All over 18 year olds I am happy for you to bring a family member/friend but do prefer to work on my own as it allows me to be more relaxed within our own environment.
I am now using a Nikon D7000 and D70s plus have my own studio equipment including lights and backdrops which help generate different effects to suit each individual photo to ensure that they are all of good quality. I have use of a 16th Century cottage in the local area and other unique buildings which give each photo a sense of individuality. The old cottage provides a vintage aspect to my photography which creates an antique style; this is something that will create a distinctive charisma within your portfolio. I am happy to travel to you or to another location in and around Exmoor to help expand the variety of different styles that I currently do.
