Professional UK freelance photojournalist. Countless lifestyle, travel & motoring magazine features published since 1985. Nine specialist military photobooks published to date. Co-Author of, and photographic contributor to, the Anglo-American titles Extreme Survival (ISBN 9780754815525) and The Urban Survival Handbook (ISBN 9781844764716 - reprinted 9781780194011) plus chapter author and photographic contributor to Ultimate Survival (ISBN 9780754817543).
Specific areas of interest are primarily stage, travel, off-road vehicle and military orientated, but also work in glamour (not top shelf) and art-nude fields.

Willing to occasionally shoot without charge models that catch my attention through their look or artistic creativity. Able to offer a limited number of publication opportunities in specialist newsstand magazines to models who meet the brief. Prefer working outdoors, but have a small home office studio set-up for portrait, fashion and figure work.

¤ If you are an established fashion/advertising model, it is unlikely that I will be able to put much high paid work your way, as of course such work is usually commissioned by the client and not the photographer.
¤ If you are a `professional glamour model` boosting your Social Security by stripping off for pocket-money photographers, I`m afraid I`m probably not what you`re looking for - no matter how much you "absolutely love my work" and how `reasonable` your rates are.
¤ If you are more interested in the art than in collecting £20 notes and you like something you see on my portfolio, feel free to contact me.

Please note that I do not shoot child models and I only photograph under-18s in a stricly newsworthy or documentary context. Sorry, but photojournalism is my profession and I am simply not prepared to put that on the line.

I do not use Facebook and I prefer to use internal PureStorm mail, backed up by telephone conversations.
