Maurice was amazing to work with, made me feel very relaxed on our first meeting. Very funny but professional, he offered beverages and food through out the shoot and put up with my many outfit changes, we spoke for a brief time before shooting. The whole time i was with Maurice i felt comfortable and able to do what i wanted with his direction also. We have since spoke about a 2nd and 3rd shoot one of which on location. I look forward to working with him again, would recommend to any one especially the newer models.
I worked with Maurice last week over a period of 2 days whilst staying as his house guest. He was very kind and made sure I was fed and watered throughout as well as being warm, which can be a problem for me!
We worked on several shoots including a fashion shoot, silver bodypaint and body crystal design. I had lots of ideas and Maurice was open to trying some stuff I wanted as well. He was professional and I have recieved some great photos.
Maurice is friendly and I already am planning to visit him again as we had lots of ideas to try but not enough time or the right weather!
I arranged a shoot with Maurice on a TFP basis to try and get some updated and more interesting photos for my portfolio and he did not disappoint! Pre shoot communications were excellent and Maurice was even kind enough to cover my travel expenses, which I wouldn't usually expect on a TFP shoot.
When I arrived, Maurice offered me a cup of tea and we sat down to discuss our ideas for the shoot. Maurice has a very clear idea of what looks good in a photo and gives great direction. His home studio set up is very professional and is actually better equipped than some actual studios that I've been to! Maurice is very easy going and chatty, which made me feel instantly at ease and comfortable around him. We both seem to be quite accident prone, which gave us some common ground! He always made sure I wasn't hungry or thirsty and we had a short lunch break during the shoot.
Maurice did a gold metallic body paint on me, which was great fun and made for some stunning images. He was even kind enough to help me scrub the paint off my back after the shoot! He was also very understanding of my tight time constraints, making sure I had the time to fit in everything I wanted to do before I had to leave.
All in all a great shoot and we are currently in the process of arranging another. Thanks Maurice!
Fab shoot what can I say but very artistic and fun lots of fun ideas and new things to try will be working with maurice in the near future fab shoot
Had my second shoot with Maurice today, and again, just the same as my first experience, Maurice was the perfect host/photographer. I knew exactly what to expect as he had an excellent response rate, and my first rope shoot of the year was a fantastic experience! We did many shoots using rope and had a load of fun. He was always conscious of me being pregnant and struggling with it, and always made sure I was comfortable. Once again, Maurice is a highly recommended photographer of mine and urge anyone who has the chance to do so to work with him (Also, supplies you with coca cola, tea, pizza and icecream.. Added bonus!) :-) Look forward to our next shoot!
Maurice was my first shoot since moving down south and only my second shoot since I had my baby, and have to say I loved every second!
He picked me up from work - 1.5 hours drive away for him, and dropped me back after the shoot too.
We shot with copper body paint, which I'd never done before, but loved every second! He made me feel completely comfortable and made me feel welcome in his home. We shot for a few hours, doing lots of different poses. He gave very good direction and was very patient with me, with it being my second shoot after a few months break :-)
I would thoroughly recommend Maurice - he made me feel comfortable and at ease, drove a total of 6 hours (More driving than shooting!), and for extra brownie points gave me a bubble bath and pizza!
Highly recommended and looking forward to the next time we shoot :-) x
