It must have been nerve racking shooting on film (unless you'd a decent budget) due to cost and the slow feedback process. I guess storage for the multiple notes you'd have had to take to recall settings and what not would be the big issue rather than how big your hard drive was! It's good to see work from time passed, interesting as part of our shared history.
Thanks, its in camera taekn at flatford milll - there's an rspb reserve beside and the water is pretty balmy around August time.

Still a couple of places available.
Book on-line at http://www.appletonphototraining.com/event-registration/?ee=219
£175 per person, promotional codes apply.
An intensive one day workshop aimed at those who have had experience in a studio but are new to the Art Nude genre. During the day we will shoot three different styles, classic low key art nude including sitting, standing and lying poses. During this set we will also create some ‘bodyscapes’. Set two is high key and how to use cloth to introduce contrast and movement. In the last set we add some props and move towards a more erotic style.
As well as camera and lighting skills we will spend time studying how to work with the model and run the shoot. The models used for these workshops are all very experienced in this genre and will spend time answering any relevant questions that students may have.
The day concludes with a review of the shoot and a short look at post processing.
Refreshments are provided including a light lunch, please advise us in advance of any special dietary requirements.
Model: Angela Kate Hudson
Skill Level: Intermediate ( Familiarity with your camera is essential but experience of working in a studio is not required)
Total Number of Students: 6

Second that-fantastic bassist.
Was lucky enough to (finally) get to see Chris with Yes on tour last year
His influence was enormous and he leaves a big hole in music....
I wish I'd gone to see Yes last year. I didn't know that the replacement for Jon Anderson was very good until I saw him on YouTube. I saw Yes a couple of times about 18 or so years ago. Never dreamed Chris would be gone this early. Without both Jon and Chris, I can't see Yes going on.

Towergate. So far I have been fortunate enough not to make a claim but I have heard very positive comments from photographers who have.
I would say check the small print very carefully. Some of the 'cheaper' insurers have clauses that make them near useless. I seem to recall one not that long back where to be covered for loss from your car the gear had to be in a locked metal strong box bolted to the floor of the boot!
I dropped Aaduki, another well respected one because their cover for equipment in the car did not cover after 7pm and they tried to drop travle abroad insurance at renewal without mentioning the change.

Exeter Social, getting together again on July 13th. at about 19.00 until they throw us out or we fall down pissed.
The Meeting House, South Street, Exeter. Limited on street parking. More parking Pay & Display at bottom of the road or in Mary Arches Street car park at the top of the road. It is down the bottom of the street and used to be a non-conformist chapel, so looks a bit grand. We tend to find a table on the right as you go in BUT if it is very crowded we might migrate upstairs to the gallery. I will probably have a camera with me so look for the gold on black Nikon livery.
It is a Weatherspoons, so good food, good cake and they do coffee etc. as well as falling down water.
Anyone feeling a bit shy, look for a huge gurt hairy geezer, white beard, long hair, loud voice. That will be me! I will introduce you to the group. If you are feeling REALLY shy and would like a gentler introduction than having to introduce yourself to Hagrid-on-Acid, mail me on PP and I will give you my mobile number so I can meet you outside and or guide you in if you are lost.
We are a friendly bunch and have not actually killed and eaten a model for ages!!!
Bring portfolio, business cards and a sense of humour.
Look forward to seeing you.

Hi Daphne. Welcome to Purestorm. Alas this site is primarily UK based. If you use the search tool at the top for photographers in your area it only comes up with 12 and all but two of them have not logged in for years
I would not normally mention other sites on here as I feel it disrespectful to the management but in this case I don't feel it is unreasonable.
Model Mayhem has been mentioned but take care of yourself, I'm aware that a number of models have gone missing in the USA via that site.
OneModelPlace is another big one in the states but will little presence in the UK
There is one other UK site that has a few photographers listed if you do not mind travelling a couple of hundred miles
Hope that helps a little

Thanks all, its not an issue of where to get repairs, I've had crc at Colchester do work for me before and would use again. It's knowing if it's a drop off or drop in job.
Give them a call. I'm seem to remember they can give you that kind of answer on the phone.

You're tall and photogenic. If I had only 3 photos to post as a model, they would be a head shot, showing a bare midriff and some leg, and one directed at the type of photos you want to do (e.g. commercial, lifestyle, off the wall).
Thanks i don't really have a preference i have worked right through different styles and levels over the years.
but i will try get a nice updated head shot and a full length.

I wouldn't be too concerned about cables.
As long as the cable supports the HDMI v1.4 standard you'll be fine (most modern cables are) but it's likely some people will be using cheap cables from when HDMI first appeared and they may cause problems.

Like the video but the song sounded so familiar to an oldie, some say a clever mix of several sources. I can clearly pick out "Stand by Me" so Charlie Puth and Fiat might get sued

What I shoot for the two companies are sports events and school groups, and I shoot weddings and horse shows from my own bookings, but I have taken these images off as thought with them being completely separate to model photography, it would be best not to showcase them here? I have mentioned that I am a beginner in this area on my port so that people are aware I'm inexperienced in this part of photography. I know zero about lighting except for the bog standard set up having been shooting predominantly outside, and not being allowed to use flash in churches. I can shoot show jumping, sports, staging full of kids and weddings to my heart's content, but when it comes to working with a model, I'm as in experienced as someone who's never stepped foot into a studio in their life!
I'll be honest, I was terrified when I shot Anita last night, I'm naturally shy anyway and I had no idea what to say to her or how to ask her what I wanted. I had someone else setting the lighting as it was a joint booking with Anita in his studio, I was a late addition to share her time. Does confidence to direct a model and try my own ideas come with time? Or is it something I need to have naturally to be able to make it in this field?
Would you recommend re-adding my wedding and horse show stuff until I've got something better done?
I'm at a total loss for direction, those who know me will know I did gymnastics & dance, so portraiture/fashion is the sea of unknown but an area I'd like to explore as a photographer.
I only showcase my best on my pages away from model sites, but with it being a totally model orientated website, I didn't think it would matter too much to build and learn and ask and progress here
& lastly, critique is good, without it, how do we move forwards?! I'm not the type to sit and cry about not hearing "OMGZ you r lyk, so awsum!" haha. Critique is a good thing
EDIT: Have put a couple of my other stuff back on

Hi Stig. Of London agencies - PRM, Oxygen, BMA, nevs always looking for photographers to test new faces... some of your work is very nice. Write mail with sample of your work, maybe also examples of full test shoots - showing you can give consistency with each model (this is important where don't have big portfolio). Good luck !
Also you will be judged on weakest shot so quality over quantity in selections
Thanks for your tips!
Yes, unfortunately I am living far north in Norway

Selling my macbook pro as I'm getting a new one. Here are the specs...
2.3 Ghz Intel core i7
256 MB SSD
8GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Graphics - Intel on board chip and GTX650
OS is OSX Yosemite
It is not under warranty. It works perfectly but needs a new external power supply which will cost around £70 from an apple store ( hence the low price ). Its in very good condition, no major scratches ( one or two tiny nicks on the outside case if you look very closely ).

I use a 5DIII with wifi on it.... Cost around £50. I've talked about it before in the forums so search for it or google 'DSLR controller'. Sorry I have no idea how it got from 1DX to a 5D III with wifi?.... I must have missed a few posts
Thanks for the tip.

Spend less time writing your PMs. I really can't understand why it should take 30 minutes to compose a message.
Or if a long one then as was suggested - write it in a WP program and copy it to PS.
