Everything you see here are original works from quite a few photoshoots. I've been shooting for about six years. Not a professional but not quite the amateur either. As always I'm somewhere in the middle. I have had a lot of demand from models who are wanting to be viewed in stronger roles enabling them to impose their personalities and not the same old same old glamour. My sets are built around femme fatale, film noir and crime scenes where the evil one gets their just desserts!!
Most of my work runs a bit dark; I've always been a big admirer of Guy Bourdin John Stoddart, Melanie Bagshaw latterly Anja Niemi and those photographers who have challenged viewers with their images. I love the whole good girl gone bad twist and my models have found the shoots great fun.
The goal is to tell a story (or at least part of it) and NOT to endorse misogyny or violence. At the risk of being pretentious this is all about art and the image. Everything else is pretty much irrelevant. Luckily the very talented models I've been fortunate enough to work with get this and have helped me in my photography efforts. As I said many have been amateur and a few paid commisions. I have photographed across the UK. Any model who would like me to er...um..shoot them please get in touch
It seems silly to have to say this but: no one was injured or harmed during the production of these somewhat morbid and provocative images. If anything, we tend to laugh alot and have real conversations about non morbid things during a shoot. In fact they are really good fun! Thats the point isnt it??
