Fashion and Model photography

Hair styling photo session in a salon

Fashion photography in the studio

The well equipped studio space that I have available for photoshoots is complimented by a dedicated preparation room. During photo sessions in the studio I usually tether the camera to a computer so you can see what the images are like before any post-processing and retouching. I find that this can help with lighting and posing tweaks and helping to ensure you get the images you want. I have temporarily converted Hair Salons, bars, canteens and even a station concourse into a studio space.

Location model photography

Location photography can place you and your clothing into contexts suited for your clients.

Location fashion and model photography

I am well equipped to meet the needs of location photography fashion shoots as well as in the studio. Sometimes the weather doesn't 'play ball', particularly at over 3000' on the top of Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa.

Hair styling photography

Show off your creations to a wider audience.

Hair styling photography

For advertising your skills or to give your Salon a promotional boost. If you have enough space I can convert part of your salon into a studio meaning that you have your styling tools available in your environment. I do have a preparation room as well as studio space available as well.

Catwalk photography

On the catwalk, I can strut my stuff on the catwalk.

Yeah, right said Fred

Fashion show catwalk photography

Catwalk shows covered including backstage preparation if required.
Pre-show publicity, hair and make-up preparation and on the runway.

Classic Hollywood style lighting

Authentic lighting and styles designed to suit you and your look.

Authentically lit classic Hollywood style

Using Fresnel lensed continuous lighting, just as in the days of those classic Hollywood monochrome images from times gone by. Add that classic look to your portfolio.

Vintage style photo sessions with a photographic quality to match your style. Bright and colourful or atmospheric monochrome. As well as flash I also have some continuous lighting that creates the type of shadow transition that is so typical of classic Hollywood glamorous photographs. Standard flash units cannot produce this type of light.

Model style photosessions

Model style photography

These sessions are edgier and more varied than my standard 'portrait sessions'. The lighting and posing style differs from the family portrait session.

I do not do 'portfolio days' where photographers make out that they will produce a set of photographs which will result in any agency that sees them signing you. That is misleading sales talk. Agencies, proper agencies, work in a different way to that. What I will do is provide you with images that will meet 'agency standards', images that you will be proud to show to other people.

Model agencies

Beware when someone promises to produce a portfolio of images that will make an agency be unable to not sign you. Real agencies do not work that way. They look at you, how you move and hold yourself, your height etc and, if they like what they see, they will send you to photographers on their lists for test shoots to create a portfolio for you. If an ‘agency’ is asking you for money up front advise them to check the legislation with regard to model agencies since no model agency can charge upfront fees, that is the law.

Studio facilities

On location at the Snowdon Summit station

Equipped to capture what you need

Dedicated changing room with lit mirror, worktop, full length mirror and hanging rail.

The lighting equipment that I use is modern and distinctly out-performs the now proverbial 'standard ebay Amazon' lighting kits that seem to be popular with some people simply because of their cheap price. Short flash durations help to freeze movement like hair flicks. Quick re-charging, along with colour and exposure consistency, also help to maintain an emphasis on quality. My lighting equipment is PAT tested so if I am converting your space into a studio space and your insurers or landlord have this requirement, no problem. I also use a wide range of lighting modifiers to tune the image. The image is created before the camera shutter is pressed.

Pricing and availability

Fee rates will depend on what it is that you require, where you require the session to be and the media delivery type that you need.

Paperwork officialdom

The equipment that I use has been PAT tested and the Public Liability Insurance that I have for my photography work should meet the needs of your venue. Increasingly venues are requiring evidence of these simple things that should be automatic for anyone offering professional photography services. Even my local village hall requires all mains electrical appliances to be tested before being used. Unfortunately not all photographers are covered for these basics. I am also DBS Enhanced checked ( Replaced CRB in December 2012 ) for the teaching work that I still do.
