Yet another great shoot with the irreplaceable Donna. Virtually every shoot we do is unplanned, deciding what we will be shooting on the day itself and going wherever that may lead us. In doing so we come up with shots which, had they been planned, may not have been so strong. So we "Wing it". And we're able to do this because we know each other so well now. Six shoots and counting… who'd have thought? Certainly not me when we first shot together just under a year ago. Will we still be shooting a year from now? HELL YES!! Thank you Donna :) xxx

Shoot number five… and counting as far as I am concerned!! It certainly goes to show that when a photographer and a model have good rapport, the more you work together the stronger the collaboration often becomes. The quality of the images start to improve in all aspects, which, considering how good we felt the shots were from out first shoot, is pretty amazing. But of course this is only my opinion. All I know is that I still stand by everything I've said previously regarding Donna, she is quite simply one of the best models I've ever shot with. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Roll on the next shoot!! xx

For our fourth shoot Donna and I decided to shoot at her place, giving us a bit of variety and deciding what and how we were going to shoot there and then, thus pretty much improvising as we went. We spent the day experimenting with light (natural and flash), reflections, and a prop (namely a friend's guitar). With the day being so relaxed and enjoyable thanks to Donna's hospitality (plenty of tea and conversation), initially we weren't sure if we had really been productive enough. However we were both extremely surprised when reviewing the shots as we captured far more good images than expected. Thank you for yet another amazing shoot Donna :) xx

I had my third shoot with Donna a few weeks ago. This model always impresses me with her attitude, professionalism, versatility and down to earth nature. A joy to shoot with... she prepares well, communicates well (before, during and after shoots), is always open to ideas, and she's always, always reliable. A stunning model in every sense of the word... looking forward to our fourth shoot together! x

I had my second shoot with Donna last week and stand by everything I said after the previous shoot. An amazing model to work with… she's stunning, versatile, well prepared, professional, as well as being smart, fun and very down to earth. Given the beautiful weather we decided to do some outdoor work this time around, and as a result have managed to capture some lovely images (plus a few quite surreal ones!). Looking forward to working with Donna again in the not too distant future :) x

Every now and then you work with a model who just stands out amongst the crowd. And so it is with Donna. In fact I would go so far as to say she is one of the best models I have ever had the privilege of working with. With great communication before the shoot, she comes well prepared with a suitcase full of clothing and accessories for virtually any look. This stunning model is like dynamite when she gets in front of the camera, requiring little or no direction, she has the knack of striking the right pose/look almost every time. Not only is she beautiful, with looks and a figure to die for, she is also smart, fun and professional. THE PERFECT MODEL. I am taking a break from photography but when I return I will certainly be booking Donna again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
5th shoot with Donna, first off they need to sort out the feedback system :)
Shoot when extremely well as normal, we tried out lots of different ideas from both myself and Donna never underestimate what she can come up with on the fly poses and ideas & always full of beans :) Thank you again for a fantastic shoot & see you soon :)

Shoot 4, this time tried some more location work in a little more of a public space, was fun got some great shots and as always Donna was a star and is lovelly to work with :) bring on the next shoot plenty more Ideas to try.
Third shoot with Donna, this time we went on location and what a sport she was :), very brave getting into the cold (muddy) water, next time I promise I'll find somewhere much much nicer but the shots did look awesome :).
Thank you again for another fantastic shoot.
Had a follow up shoot with Dinky this weeked (21st Jan) & Again a fantastic shoot :) there is not much more I can add to my previous comment but book Dinky now you will definitely not regret it and you'll get some cracking shots & more inventive poses over & over :).
Thank you again Donna for a lovely shoot.

Had a really good first shoot with Donna, she turned up on time, with her entire wardrop & she brought some home cooked SpagBowl which helped to break the ice :).
Shoot with Donna was near on perfect, she adopted to the ideas I had and she had plenty of ideas of her own, she loved working with props especally sharp ones :), really gets into the character of the shot and the end results are awesome, as echoed below she poses well time after time and has an amazing natural physique.
Was great fun working with Donna and can't wait to arrange another shoot.
Firstly sorry for being late putting up my feedback .
They say all the best things come in small packages and how true they are .
this young lady is a right little firecracker
full of beans and is amazing Had some good input during the shoot we got some amazing photos doing Gothic WOW !!!
Oh only one thing she never shuts up talk talk talk but i love it. It's about personality as well not just being a good model
Dinky Donna has it all going on
Rock and roll
Can't wait to shoot her next time
thanks again 100% Recommended
Despite it being very cold I had a brilliant shoot with Donna tonight...She is a stunning model, and excellent to work with. I would definately love the chance to work with her again.
Did my first shoot with Dinky yesterday evening. I would recommend her to all photographers.
Her pre shoot communication was very good. She had lot of ideas to include in the shoot along with many outfits to choose from.
She is a very friendly, lively and bubbley person with lots to offer. There was minimal direction needed and I hope to shoot with her again.
Thank you, x
