About Me

I started as a freelance photographer back in the 70's working mainly in the music business. My pictures have been published in magazines, newspapers on TV and now on the internet for over thirty years. I am currently working on updating my portfolio and looking to add fashion, glamour, lingerie, swimsuit, implied nude and nude images that will have a real wow factor. I'm happy to work with models regardless of their level of experience and will consider Time For xxx if you have that something special. Otherwise my rates are reasonable and I will work hard to make sure you get the shots we can both be proud of. My style is to be friendly and relaxed but at all time professional.

Seska J · Model

Thank you so much! I love your avatar, you are very creative with your model photography, love your make up and arty shots too - and great music portfolio - you must have some really great stories to tell there's some amazing people you've shot!! I'd love to shoot with you, I have some availability August/September at weekends here and there, and I do decent rates for local photographers as I don't often shoot locally so if you'd like to sort something please do private message me and we can sort something out :-) I'm also on PS under username FrancescaAnne for references etc :-)
Best wishes
Seska :-)


It was a pleasure & a privelige to work with Steve. He's very hard-working & dedicated to getting his pictures just right. I found Steve to be professional, great at directing & great at putting the model at ease. Steve has done some epic work (I was a little intimidated based on his back catalogue before meeting him) but this hasn't affected his enthusiam for photography or his attitudes towards working with people. The communication before, during & after was second to none. Incredibly organsied & efficient - given how busy this guy is I don't know how he does it! Everything you'd expect of a professional & more. A great photographer. Looking forward to working with Steve again.
