I'm a hobbyist photographer from Dublin, Ireland. But with that said, I like to think I plan and carry out all my shoots in a professional manner.
I do take my photography seriously and always aim to create images which I'm proud of. My manner can sometimes be perceived as being quite serious, often blunt, perhaps even a touch intimidating, but to be honest I do this for fun and that's the most important thing for me when I take photographs. My work is rarely commercialised, beyond the odd print sale here and there, so when I shoot, it's for portfolio usage and for the sheer fun of it.
I guess that's what I look for in models... I love working with people that also take pride in creating great shots. People that are professional, reliable, willing to work hard on a shoot, but most importantly, are willing to have fun and bring their personality to a shoot. I have a strong preference for models that work to nude levels and are comfortable and confident being nude, even if the shoot itself doesn't require it.
