About Me

Thank you for looking at my profile. I am a semi-pro photographer in my late forties based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

By semi pro I mean I get paid for lots of my work which is outside of the modelling sphere, there is a book of my photos out there and companies hire me but I put bread on the table through other aspects of my work.

If you are coming by train it's 90 minutes from Paddington. Equally trains from the north or south west come via Gloucester and I can easily collect you from Stroud or Gloucester station.  If driving, there is ample free parking.  Don't try to come by bus.  Just don't, you'll never get here.

I've my own studio at home where I've done hundreds of shoots over the last 15 years. It's the ground floor of my house, completely private and works nicely, there is space to change and it is cosy.  I am also close to woodlands and the canal so outdoors is a possibility, especially in clement weather.  I know plenty of nearby locations both industrial grime and rolling Cotswold scenery.

Shoots take place Monday - Friday between 0900 and 1500, weekends are almost never available. Most shoots are 2-3 hours of unhurried work, drinks and snacks are always available. 

I enjoy shooting all sorts of people and my favourite genres are artistic nude and naturist style images, I am equally happy shooting male and female models, although my style may be quite vanilla for some on this site, I hope my work has an integrity and that I capture something of the personality of the model when we shoot.

My ideal requirements for a model are male or female,18-30, gym fit, with good skin, hard working and eager to play their part. That said, I don't discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, sexuality, religion or age BUT I do expect you to be willing to show your face in photos.  I'm really happy to work your ideas into the shoot and get you images that you are looking for.  Images come after the shoot, edited and you can use them for your folio, onlyflange etc.

I offer TF and paid work but I don't sell images on and only use them for folio use so I work to a sensible and realistic budget but if your look doesn't work for me or your prices exceed what I am looking to pay then we won't work together.  Sorry.

I've been kicking round photography for a long while and love nothing more than chatting about the art, the experience and so much more so always happy to discuss this with anyone. Finally I do appreciate you looking at my folio, please feel free to get in touch, even if it is just for a chat!

With Covid having botched everything up, I'm editing old stuff and putting it up here.  As soon as the rules dictate and I am happy shooting then we'll be back up and running again but in the meantime keep well and keep in touch, we can always plan for when the world is a happier place.

Once we are back up and shooting again I expect to be back on the road a fair bit, usually I am away in the UK for about 15 nights a year so can usually arrange shoots at some point if you have a place or are happy for a hotel shoot.

Equally I am usually working somewhere in Europe and somewhere in either Africa, America or the Far East once a year and again if I can I'll post castings.

Finally, all of you, keep rocking your art.

"Marcus is an exceptional photographer. Very accomplished, yet humble! I worked with him yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed his company. He made me feel very comfortable and we chatted about all sorts of topics while shooting. He's got great stories to tell and highly recommend him! On top of that, he is an absolute wizard with lighting and I'm looking forward to showing of his work as well as working with him again at some point." Read less

"I loved every second of working with GuyPose. He was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. He has a wonderful way of working and making sure he is getting the best out of the model. He was extremely professional and the space that he works in was excellent for creating work that I am proud of. Cannot recommend GuyPose more if I tried, a truly amazing artist, who I shall look forward to working with again." Read less
