It's natural to be a bit nervous if you're not in the habit of being photographed in a studio so together with my assisant and wife Nikki we sit down over tea or coffee and have a chat about your costumes and what sort of images and poses you would like.
Whether it's on location, at your house or in my portable studio I use carefully crafted but simple lighting which leaves more time to create the images I want.
With subtle direction and flattering poses and camera angles even someone who considers themselves unphotogenic will be amazed at how they can look in a photograph. Nikki is always present to sort that errant strand of hair or item of clothing and add the creative woman's touch where needed.
Also if you're unfortunate enough to develop a pimple that morning don't worry, a bit of digital makeup can work wonders!
