Experience:
I have established a relationship with a group of sites where I have published content, mainly because I have demonstrated to them that I can shoot in the style they require. I have many years experience of photography, including landscape, nature and macro.

All the models I have worked with have laughed a lot (in a good way!). I will treat you in a respectful but friendly way and I am confident that you will enjoy the process of working with me. I pay in cash, in full, at the end of each shoot. Please feel free to make direct contact with any of the models in my portfolio. You can also contact the owner of Yorkshire Studios in Keighley.

I place casting calls as infrequently as much of my work is with models who have previously worked with me or who contact me direct. Please contact me if you are interested after reading my portfolio.
 
Comments:
I now shoot only for publication on adult websites, at US mag or continental level. I no longer work at UK magazine, art nude level or below, although my portfolio necessarily shows such images. As a freelance content provider, I recruit a model, shoot her in stills and video, pay her and submit the work to an adult paysite for publication. I exclusively work with websites which respect the models who appear on them and I will not shoot for any site which degrades or demeans its models.

I will seek prior approval from the publishing website on the basis of casting shots before I undertake a full shoot with a model so that publication is assured. This is not my rule but a rule of the client sites I work for. The client will need to see full nude standing shots (closed leg) from front, back and both sides, plus a face shot. They must be recent (within 3 months) and completely unedited (NO photoshop whatsoever). Published, edited shots are not acceptable.

I am always seeking models aged between 18 and 25. I require two proofs of ID and one of those must be a photo ID, preferably a valid passport or a driving licence. I cannot shoot you without these and you will also need to sign model release documents.

You must be prepared to work to adult US magazine or continental level in both stills and video. If you have experience at US magazine or continental level, that is fine, but I am more than happy to direct you if you haven't. I only shoot solo girl content.

Dress size should be between UK 6 and 10. Breast size is not important and occasionally some client sites will now accept some breast enhancements. Natural is always preferred, however. You may be shaved or have pubic hair, depending on the assignment. Tattoos are always a disadvantage and may disqualify you from working with me. If you have them, I will need photographs of them before booking you. If you arrive at a shoot and surprise me with tattoos, I will send you home without shooting you.

I also have some opportunities for mature models aged 30 and over and more limited opportunities for models between 26 and 29. All must meet the above criteria.

I want my work to capture the personality of the model and this is much more important than modelling experience. I need a confident, relaxed and happy look to the pictures and videos. I prefer models who have not yet been published and some clients will not accept models who have been published already. You need to look like a happy "girl-next-door", not like a fashion model. Ideally, you would use very little makeup or even none at all. The "model look" is not what my clients want. The fine art look is not what my clients want. I do not produce art either for you or for myself. I am shooting for clients and I am paying you to deliver the look that my clients want. I do not edit or enhance images.

I will treat you with respect, I will not touch you and I will do everything to ensure you feel safe and comfortable and have an enjoyable experience working with me. The shoot will be conducted in a wholly professional manner but I promise it will be fun. Smiles and laughs make great photos.

I also expect you to treat me with respect and this means replying to pre-shoot communication and turning up at the agreed time and place. I have only had one no-show but it is an experience I do not want to have again. I would also appreciate Purestorm feedback from you after the shoot. I regard this as part of the respect and I would expect to leave feedback for you. It is of course purely voluntary but I am more likely to offer repeat work to models who choose to leave feeback.

I pay immediately on completion of a job, not by hourly rate. I agree the fee with you, inclusive of all expenses, when we book the shoot and it does not depend on your level of experience. A job is either a full day, or it can be spread over two days by mutual agreement, without affecting the fee. I will never pressurise you to work beyond your level but, if you are not prepared to work to US magazine or continental level in both stills and video, the job will not complete and you will not be paid.

I can shoot at my home in York or your home if it is workable. For shoots at my home, I can offer accommodation for you and I provide all food. If you want to be accommodated with a partner, you will need to find a nearby hotel. I can also shoot at Yorkshire Studios in Keighley.

I rarely post casting calls so please contact me at any time if you feel you would like to work with me. I have carried out most shoots as a result of models contacting me or sites specifically asking me to shoot particular models.

I do not allow chaperones, partners, boyfriends etc on shoots. You are welcome to have someone bring you to a shoot and collect you afterwards but they must leave during the shoot. If you feel that you need a chaperone then please do not work with me.

I had a scheduled two day shoot with Stephen. Communication prior to the shoot was effortless, swift & prompt- Stephen prepared the schedule and outfits description to a Tee for each set it was excellently thought out. The model notes and shoot plan was very descriptive and explanatory.

He strongly advised making the shoot a two day shoot as it is very straining but very much worth it to the images and vids. - Advice well taken note of.


Stephen thought not just about planning the two day shoot but also to my health, making sure I was well fed (fabulous chef I must add!)

He made me feel very much at ease throughout the shoots and the two days, a marvellous host and brilliant director.-Explaining the briefing before each set.


I highly recommend Stephen to all models for a fun packed shoot & I look forward to working with Stephen again on many more planned shoots. :)

Thank you so much :)

Well what can I say, first shoot with Stephen, and it went great, felt right at home from the moment I walked in, spread the shoot over 2 days and was very relaxed and very fun...
Had lots of chat and laughs, and also had great food and drinks, and a very comfortable nights sleep, we got all the work done and it didn't feel like work as we had a lot of fun, the work is actually a lot and hard work, but then when it's spread over 2 days of laughter and food, it's actually pretty easy work!
Can't wait to shoot again, let's hope it's soon, thankyouuuuu....

I had the pleasure of working with Stephen recently on a 2 day shoot up in God's own country :-)
Preshoot communications were excellent with everything carefully explained in a professional informative manner.
Stephen had prepared well for the shoot, he knew exactly what he required but also allowed room for me to add my own creativity.
More than happy to recommend and hope to work with him again at some point in the future. Thank you for a couple of really enjoyable days.
