Hello and Welcome to my PURESTORM page.

ALL WORK ON THIS PORTFOLIO SHOT IN NATURAL/AVAILABLE LIGHT ...UPDATE, SOME ARE NOT!

**** MODELS PLEASE NOTE **** : If you cancel or No-Show then a £50 charge will be levied if you do not inform me of a cancellation within 24 hours of the confirmed shoot time and date. This is fair, a no-show is not fair and neither is a late cancellation....


I am an experienced published Anglo-American photographer working for both global clients and individuals alike.

I specialise in Natural Light, Contre Jour and Northlight fine art photography, though I am knowledgeable in capturing a diverse range of photographic styles; I am available to shoot: Architectural, Beauty, Commercial, Editorial, Fashion, Fitness, Glamour, Portraiture as well as model portfolios.

I am always on the lookout for new designers and make-up artists, so please get in touch!

I regularly travel in the United States and Hong Kong/Macau, and I am normally available for assignments in Florida, New York and Tri State, California, Arizona and Texas in the summer months.


Currently UK or HONG KONG

MODELS & PEOPLE seeking beautiful images:

Whilst I do not ‘Test’ models unless you meet the criteria I am looking for either for myself or my clients, I do offer affordable packages for anyone interested in developing a professional portfolio, so if you are looking to start or update your book, please feel free to get in touch and discuss your needs, so we can tailor a shoot that meets your needs.


After more than 30 years working in photography, I am experienced in training models in posing and providing general advice/contacts to the industry. I do not ‘manage’ models, but will provide any model with the appropriate assistance and guidance to seek placement with an agency, or tips on success as a freelance model.

I am an easy to get along with guy, and I don’t bite – so if you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch – I would be delighted to hear from you!
 
Comments:
It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen" to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends.

I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

TECHNICAL COMMENT

ALL IMAGES ON THIS PORTFOLIO WERE POST PRODUCED ON CALIBRATED MONITORS USING SPYDER 3 PRO HARDWARE. THE RESULTANT JPEGS ARE BASELINE OPTIMIZED HUFFMAN ENCODED USING THE SPYDER 3 PROFILE AND AS SUCH ARE..... NOT sRGB.

THE IMAGES ARE BEST VIEWED AT A MIN 1024 RES ON A FIREFOX V15 BROWSER (WHERE YOU CAN ADJUST COLOR GAMUT). USING BROWSERS SUCH AS IE7 WILL GIVE UNPREDICTABLE RESULTS, ESPECIALLY IN BLACKS. SAFARI BROWSERS WILL PRODUCE DOMINANT REDS.

My first test shoot with Michael went amazingly well, he is a truly lovely guy and a pleasure to work with. He was also really professional and I feel we created some really stunning images. I can't wait to work with him again :)

I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful photographer on the 13th December 2013, Although very nervous upon arrival I was made to feel very comfortable after only a few minutes until the finish of our shoot.

I tried numerous styles of modelling. It was a wonderful experience and really hope to be photographed by this photographer again in the near future.

He is a great person, very patient and wonderful host and my photos are incredible. I highly recommend Michael to every model out there x

There was good communication before and during my shoot with Michael. He collected me from the bus stop which is just a minute away from his studio. He gave good direction when needed during shoot, and kept me moving. He also gave me good advice about modelling since I am fairly new to scene. Would recommend to anyone thinking of working with him. Thanks for good shoot Michael and I look forward to seeing all of end results :)
