Had a lovely last minute location shoot with Simon. The communication before the shoot was excellent and had great plans for the shoot. I felt comfortable with Simon straight away as he was talkative and relaxed. Also he was very professional and respectful throughout.
He was letting me pose freely and suggesting ideas too. He made me feel comfortable throughout and was full of good ideas.
I would highly recommend him to any model and will hopefully work with him again soon.
Simon and I shot together over the weekend @ Natural Light Spaces. This was the first time we had worked together after he applied for my casting call!
We had an awesome shoot together, it flowed easy, ideas not drying up once! The time went so quickly and we got some pretty amazing shots from it also!
I’d recommend him and would happily work with him again!
Simon and I worked together on a portrait and fashion shoot in London.
Simon was an absolute pleasure to work with, full of brilliant ideas and creativity. He made me feel very comfortable in his presence and was so easy to get along with.
He definitely has a talent for photography and if you have the opportunity to work with him then be honoured!
Thanks for an awesome shoot Simon, I look forward to working with you again!
Had a great outdoor fashion shoot with Simon yesterday and I really enjoyed it!
He's a talented photographer, a genuine guy, easy to work with, polite and professional. Yes, all this!
It was very fun and relaxed.
Pre-shoot communication was excellent.
Unfortunately, we had to split the shoot because of the light and the weather at the end of the day.
In one hand, I am actually glad as I am going to shoot with him again soon and finish what we couldn't finish. I am very looking forward to it!
The first part of the shoot was actually very nice... many good ones from the back of the camera! Can't wait to see the final edits!
Thank's again Simon!
What a lovely and easy going person Simon is! He was simply a pleasure to work with. I wasn't feeling too well on our shoot and he was incredibly respectful of my pace. It's because of this that we were able to absolutely NAIL each set. We also happened to get quite lucky wandering around Shoredich and happened upon amazing backdrop after amazing backdrop. I do think we worked seamlessly in a team, with Simon managing the photography and me making little adjustments until we got that "killer" shot. Cannot wait to see the shots after they go through Simon's photoshop magic.
Really loved working with him and have no doubt we will do so again!
I had a wonderful shoot with Simon recently while he was in Dorset. We planned to shoot down on the beach and, as has been the norm lately, it was very hot! Simon was very considerate of my comfort and safety, as well as being friendly and easy to talk to. We shot a huge variety of images, including some right out on the rocks where I lay in wait for big waves to crash up behind me. Thanks to Simon's patience and timing, we got some absolutely wonderful images that he has since very kindly shared with me. I loved working with Simon and would be delighted to do so again - very highly recommended!
It was a real pleasure to work with Simon - with fantastic results!
Pre-communications were spot on, with Simon providing a really good starting point for us with some fab mood boards and lots of ideas. He arrived on time on the day, well prepared with soooo much equipment!!
We had a little chat before we started and I quickly realised that Simon is a very kind, down-to-earth chap. I felt totally comfortable with him at all times.
We covered a few different sets and got some fantastic variation. Simon has a good eye for angles and alternative ideas which can really add something different. He is REALLY good at using light, especially natural light, and made me look lovely which is always a bonus
Overall, Simon is a creative, strong photographer who is also a pleasure to work with. Respectful and easy-going, a model's dream. The results so far look simply amazing, some of my favourite images yet, and I would highly recommend Simon to any model!!
Thank you for a wonderful shoot
Simon and I had our first shoot together today at Saracen House in Milton Keynes. This was the first time I had met Simon and what a great shoot! Simon is down to earth and he is so easy to get along with. He knows exactly how to create amazing images and capture the best lighting. I loved our shoot and I would recommend working with Simon to other models. Hopefully I will get to work with Simon again soon
Had a great shoot with Simon! Such a lovley man that made me feel at ease straight away!
We had good communication before the shoot planning outfits and photo styles we liked which made it a lot easier when on set ! Simon Had some great ideas and clearly has a passion for photography And what he does ! And even put up with me blaring out s club 7 mid shoot (what more could you want)! The images have turned out fab and can’t recommend enough
Had such an amazing shoot with Simon yesterday at Natural Light Spaces. Communication from the start has been brilliant! Simon is really easy to get along with, full of ideas, and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole shoot!!! LOVED the images from the back of the camera!! So I know the final images will be amazing!! Cannot wait to work with Simon again!! Highly recommend!!
Great to have Simon at our new studio for the first time last weekend for his shoot. The shoot went well and Simon had a clear idea of what he needed to create the shots and was a thoroughly nice guy to boot. Highly recommend
Simon is a very professional, efficient photographer!
Pre-comms were excellent and he made everything crystal clear for me.
The shoot itself was very productive and we shot a wide range of sets in the few hours we had shooting.
Simon is definitely one of the best photographers I've worked with and I am keen to work with him again in the near future!
I am SO pleased with the shots we achieved (and I can be pretty fussy).
Do not hesitate to work with Simon as you will not be dissapointed!
It was a pleasure to meet Simon this week as he shot with the model Victoriah at my studio.
Simon can already take a great photo as his portfolio shows and has some great references already, so i was only too happy to let him shoot at mine, and i found Simon to be exactly what the models state in their references to him, a lovely guy, chatty, polite, very respectful to the model and studio equipment and not afraid to get creative to get the shot (which i love).
I had no plans to assist on the shoot but was more than happy to assist when asked and show Simon a few tricks i do with lights in the studio, which again shows Simon to be a true photographer with a desire to learn new ideas and ways of shooting and the results looked great on the back of the camera and i look forward to seeing the edits.
Simon is welcome back here anytime and we have spoken about teaming up for a group shoot next year, and he comes highly recommended by me, to models and studio owners.
I worked with simon recently at lrm's home studio.
We had a great shoot and we tried new things and ideas and lighting
After trying to arrange a shoot for years it was great to finally get to shoot together. A really lovely person and great photographer. We got some really stunning shots
I would highly recommend and can't wait to work together again
Amazing second shoot with Simon at my home studio! We got very creative and were bouncing ideas off eachother the whole time, the best type of shoot Simon is a great guy, respectful, passionate about photography and creative! I absolutely love what we were creating and look forward to seeing the edits. Highly recommended!
I had been itching to shoot with Simon again all year and I was frilled when he messaged me to arrange a shoot at Natasha amazing home studio in Camberley!
It is always such a pleasure working with Simon and I always look forward to our shoots together! He not only produces beautiful images but is such a joy to work with! The time flys and we always get lovely pictures. As we work through the sets he shows you the images and is always so relaxed.
I highly recommend working with Simon if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed!
Wowzahsss! What an awesome afternoon shoot we had! We made bins look good in an image that's how much the shoot ruled! We got plenty of sets and ideas done and I'm so happy with the outcome of the images even just seeing them on the back of the camera! Simon's an incredible photographer and I reccomend him happily for any shoot or project! Thank you for a great shoot Simon and I can't wait to see the final images

Had a shoot with Simon on sunday & so glad I had the chance as he isn't normally in this area. We got along well and I felt very comfortable , he's a lovely guy and great photographer... showed me the images after each set which is helpful & gave really good ideas/ feedback. We got some nice shots and I'm looking forward to seeing finished images. Would definitely recommend if you get the chance to shoot with him & hope to work with Simon again in the future if we're ever close by. Thanks Simon ☺

I had a fantastic photoshoot yesterday with Simon! We wondered around the tourist attractions in Norwich. I found Simon to be polite, full of ideas and great to talk too. We bounced ideas backwards and forwards, which made Simon very easy to talk too about shoot ideas.
Simon put a casting out a while back about looking for a model in Norwich to work with. I browsed through his portfolio on purpleport and found the photos to be very elegant and glamorous, which is my style. The organisation, to discussing ideas(Outfits,makeup and hairstyle) before the shoot I found to be very organised too.
I would totally recommend Simon to any model out there. We we already planning to work together in the new year. 100 percent highly recommended.

Simon is an amazing photographer and his editing skills are insane. We shot a while back and it was a great shoot. He was very friendly and professional and pre comms were spot on.
I really hope to work with this talented photographer again when it is warmer!!
Had my first shoot with Simon last month, and was very impressed with how it went! He is very professional and a joy to work with. Despite the weather being a bit cold and windy we got some great shots and I would recommend him to any model. looking forward to arranging some more shoots in the future

Today I had a wonderful shoot with Simon, all planned very well with him sending me over moodboards and ideas so I can style the shoot accordingly with great communication! We got lucky with the weather and got some beautiful shots on the beach and along a lovely river. Simon knows of some really lovely locations and his photography is brilliant, I loved so many of our images from today and I cant wait to see the end results!
I highly recommend working with this photographer not only does he have a professional and passionate attitude but he is a great joy to work with!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Simon yesterday. Pre shoot communication was excellent which made it quick and easy to book.
Simon is a true gentleman. Lovely down to earth guy which made the shoot professional and enjoyable.
He had a great location which we used really well. I love the pictures we got just from seeing them off the back of the camera.
Great location, great guy, great shoot!
I look forward to working with Simon again!!
Worked with Simon yesterday and had a great shoot. We used a studio that was new to Simon that had so much to use for background and backdrops. Once we'd decided what to use the shoot got going. Simon had some great ideas for the kind of shots he wanted and was very helpful in getting me to get the shot.
The way Simon shoots is great, he'd take a couple of shots then show me the back of the camera so I could see if it looked right and what I needed to change. This I found very helpful. He's such a nice guy and I found it very easy to be myself around him. Great work atmosphere. Would definitely work with Simon again.

I had the pleasure of shooting with Simon for the first time today at Wolfe Cottage Studio.
Simon was fantastic before the photoshoot with his communications and organisation making an easy run up to the day.
Simon arrived in plenty of time and was absolutely wonderful to work with!! He was very relaxed and incredibly easy to get along with making a lovely environment to shoot in. Simon had great ideas and was also happy for us to put forward our own capturing some incredible shots.
Simon is very talented and I hope to work with him again in the future. Highly recommended!
Thank you for a great day x

Had a fantastic shoot with Sinimi today. I'm glad I get to be his first reference! He showed up on time and pre communications were spot on. He had lots of ideas and we had a great time chatting Canon kit and creating some awesome images. Despite not being too experienced working with models, he was a true gentleman, very polite and we got some great images from what he showed me on the back of the camera. He's even managed to get a same day edit on here which is amazing!
Lovely guy and thank you for starting off my Milton Keynes tour so wonderfully!
Highly recommended Thanks again!
