Ashwini - February 2023
"Lovely photographer, he puts so much effort in taking every photo he teach us how to pose and the photos we got is incredible. You gave me good look, confidence, all these what I was craving for a good and natural photography."
"First I should thank Mr Colin for arranging a wonderful meeting and he shared me a drink and made me comfortable and friendly behaviour in the initial meeting ... slowly he taught me poses and corrected my poses and gave me photos for my lifetime ... he is so patient and never seen any photographer with so much passion."
Shilly - January 2023
"Colin puts a lot of thought, care and energy into his shoots. He helped me with understanding where the light was coming from and other practical guidance, but allowed me to express myself freely and so the photos came out brilliantly. So many favourites!!! He is also a very interesting and intelligent guy so we had lots of great chats and I am going to be working with him again. Thank you colin for a great first shoot of 2023!!! Shilly xxx"
Lina - November 2022
"I've done two shots with Colin. He is a professional, very talented, safe, understanding, organized and relaxing photographer also a friendly personality. I felt relaxing environment in his studio, I was myself and comfortable.
I am photographer as well, I was amazed of his photography skills. I learnt a lot from him. We got a great results! The photos we produced were incredible, high quality and I could't be happier. Definitely I would recommend Colin and I will back again.
Four days ago I’ve done third time photoshoot with Colin. He is an incredibly skilled photographer. He understood right away what I was after and put a lot of effort to endure my needs were met. He has a wonderful way of guiding you into natural flowing poses and making you feel very comfortable/relaxed. I look forward to works with him in the future again. Thank you, Colin!"
Eva - October 2022
"Colin has strong technical photographic skill set, including, the use of lights, camara, backdrops, and photoshop. Therefore, it is easy to get quality shots. With many years of experience in photoshoot industry, Colin has developed a wonderful wardrobe with tasteful outfits and unique perspectives for composition. On a personal level, Colin is so easy and pleasant to work with. First, we organised our shoot with clear goals using collaborative mood board. During the shoot, Colin is good at directing my poses, making constructive suggestions, and willing to try out new ideas. He is also considerate and caring for my welfare such as drinks and snacks. I am very grateful that we share a lot aethtic vision and humour, as a result working together is full of joy and laughter."
Cholé - August 2022
"I recently had a lovely shoot with Colin and would definitely recommend him!
Pre communication with Colin was very good and nice styles/ideas were given.
Colin is a great photographer and gave me some good guidance when needed, we had a very fun shoot and produced beautiful pictures. Hopefully we can shoot again in the future!"
Misty Tee - July 2022
"Had an absolutely wonderful shoot with Colin at his home studio. We had a three hour shoot and it flew by. Colin was an absolute gem making me feel welcome from the minute I arrived.
Having seen the standard of Colin's work I was really excited about what would be created and I wasn't disappointed. Colin is extremely talented and really knows his stuff when it comes to photography.
Overall Colin was friendly and professional and I cannot wait to see the end results from our time together."
Melissa - June 2022
"Colin was very accommodating and helpful, was a brilliant shoot and I very much had a wonderful time and got some amazing images. Will most definitely be working with him again in the future."
Lucinda - May 2022
"Having never taken part in a professional photo shoot before, I was more than a little trepidatious about the process. I need not have been, as Colin made every part straightforward and relaxed, resulting in a set of photographs I was delighted with.
As my requested photo content was a little out of the ordinary, I was impressed that he took the time and trouble to research the genre beforehand. At his suggestion we had put together a digital mood board of suggestions and influences that we were able to keep referring to during the course of the session, and to interpret in a practical way that felt appropriate to my vision.
Colin made me feel completely at ease by chatting with me, finding out more about me and my approach to my work and explaining his approach to his photography, before we headed to his very comprehensively equipped and ingenious studio.
Dealing with a total novice in his studio was a challenge Colin handled with wonderful patience, calm and gentle humour, for which I will be eternally grateful! He also explained how to position myself, how to move to create different poses and deftly adapted the studio and lighting to suit the various images we were creating.
The full set of proofs Colin sent me after the shoot gave me plenty of options from which to choose, and he edited my final selection exactly as requested. I now have a high quality set of photos to use for promotion and am already formulating ideas for future shoots with him. This was definitely an excellent investment of my time and money, and one I would have no hesitation in recommending to others. "
Gordon - December 2021
"I found Colin through a Google search. I'm so glad I did. I wanted to capture a significant family get-together with a photo shoot. Right from the off, he was a pleasure to work with. Always timely, quick to respond and thoroughly professional in every way. He came on site to do the shoot which was massively helpful and clicked away while the family took turn to pose. He was gracious, highly amenable, great with the children and put us all at ease to get the most out of his subjects. He sent our proofs for checking and choosing the same day as the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend Colin. Brilliant to work with and delivering great results. One very happy client."
Joy - December 2021
"We found Colin to be just what was needed for our family shots. He was flexible, patient, encouraging and creative, putting us at ease as he clicked through over 700 photos. It was a fun and often humorous experience. Thank you Colin,"
Annie - June 2021
"What a delight it was to work with Colin on a recent, natural light shoot near my home in St Agnes, Cornwall. Colin was both delightful to work with as well as highly professional and the photos from the shoot were absolutely wonderful.
I highly recommend working with Colin and look forward to my next shoot with him."
Sam (Actor Headshots) - June 2021
"From start to finish I enjoyed very minute of the shoot. Colin made me feel very relaxed in front on the camera and gave some really useful advice. Having looked at the photographs that were taken I am really pleased with them. I would definitely ask Colin to take my headshots again in the future as I know they will turn out well."
Amy - August 2020
"Wow. Is the first word that comes to mind when I think back to working with Colin yesterday. An incredibly professional character with an ever-flowing creativity line! Our personalities collided and we became friends very quickly! A genuine human being and a fantastic photographer! Always willing to learn more and striding in nothing but the best results for the model and himself, as the photographer. I highly recommend Colin and I unequivocally believe that working with Colin with be the best experience you’ll ever have in this industry!"
Madalina - June 2020
"Had my first shoot with Colin last Saturday and the result was many excellent photos. I can not wait to receive the edits and show you guys our work!"
Carrie (Third Shoot) - May 2020
"Third shoot working with Colin, on location might I add, Colin and I share the love and inspiration for the photographer Helmut Newton so we decided to rustle up some shots which would be closely inspired by that genre of photography, with an array of lingerie and outfits to chose from, Colin and I played around with different types of lingerie, utilising my house as the perfect location for a shoot like this, I would very much recommend Colin. He is a very patient and very forthcoming photographer, I felt very comfortable shooting with him and am looking forward to our next shoot. Thanks a bunch!"
Chloe (Fifth Shoot) - March 2020
"This is mine and Colin's 5th shoot and we both know that the 5th shoot is a special milestone. So we decided to go big with it, me and Colin had initial ideas to do a "pink themed" shoot, which originally started as a fleeting comment and a casting call I had created in November last year. Colin had contributed to the ideas of the shoot and made the extra effort to make sure this shoot was our best one yet. He had everything prepared, even went to the shops for extra bits and had provided some outfits in advanced for me to look at and try on. I am happy to have someone like Colin as a friend who understood the vision I had and how to go about it. The shoot went so amazingly well and smooth that we have already discussed the next shoot, which will be heavily inspired by this one. Thank you again Colin, I look forward to many more shoots with you in the future!"
Hollie - March 2020
"I can’t recommend working with Colin enough for shoots. That’s a plural because you will want multiple. Colin instantly puts you at ease with his warm and talkative nature, it shan’t be long until it feels like you’re in the company of an old friend even on a first time meeting. His knowledge of photography and lighting only compliments his natural talent behind the camera, he recognises the best angles and poses for you. Continuous feedback until you’re hitting the nail on the head with posing and Colin will become very quiet with feedback becoming statements such as enthused “wow’s”. A small but mighty studio where creativity can flow between both the photographer and model to create some incredibly fantastic and exciting imagery.
Colin also has a keen eye for style, helping when you can’t quite decide what to wear or if an outfit doesn’t feel quite right. Don’t even get me started on his fantastic organised costume range that has happy for you to pick and choose from.
I left the shoot reeling with the joy, the joy was only heightened the moment I got to see the end result of what we created! A truly respectable and fantastic photographer."
Sammie (Third Shoot) - March 2020
"Our next shoot was involving a lot of different styles throughout the whole shoot, it definitely was one of the creative shoots we had created together. I had originally told Colin that I wanted to test out some creative art nude shots. This shoot was a test for one of our up coming events, we started off with a white beautiful lingerie lace set with a white backdrop and some elegant body shapes.
We then went onto a darker set with a lingerie lace bodysuit of mine where we used a darker backdrop , Colin had set up a few different lighting settings which was different to some of our recent work together. He even marked a spot on the floor to make sure I stayed within the lights to create the same look in each photo as I had a light behind me and two lights to the sides of me which caused less room to move to pose within.
Colin is amazing to work with and I cant wait to carry on working within him."
Sammie (Group Shoot) - February 2020
"Our 3rd shoot was in fact a group shoot where me and Colin organised a session were 6 photographers could attend and learn studio photography with his guidance.
I felt honoured being the first model Colin had organised a shoot event with, I was a lot of fun and I can't wait to organise many more with him. Colin had the outfits prepared and ready for me when I turned up to the shoot. Before the event we sat down for lunch and Colin was helping me fix my website and my portfolio while making it sound more professional and look more clean, we even changed a few of the outfits at last minuet as Colin had loved a few of the outfits I had brought along and swapped them out and included a few of my outfits into the line up for the event.
The photographers started to turn up, they all were all friendly to work with. Colin started speaking to them regarding what they would create within the event while teaching them the basics. Colin was great to work with during the event and he even protected me and made sure I was safe half way through the event when a photographer started to give off a uncomfortable vibe."
Ron (Group Shoot) - February 2020
"My first shoot at Colin Winstanley's studio went well. Colin met us at the door on time. Colin's arrangements went well during our 3 hr group shoot with Samantha King. Thank Colin look forward to my next shoot at your studio."
Glen (Group Shoot) - February 2020
"Had my first group shoot at Colin Winstanley on 24 February. I am new to photography (6 months) it was a fantastic experience. Colin was very welcoming and friendly, with teas, coffees and biscuits aplenty😊 The Shoot was well managed and I gained a lot of knowledge about lighting, portrait techniques, etc from Colin. Sammie the model was great and very professional, the posses she made without my direction allowed me to concentrate on the photography which was a great help. The other photographers at the shoot were a source of endless photography knowledge and very friendly. I am looking forward to the next group shoot."
Sammie (Second Shoot) - February 2020 - Posted as Two Blogs, Valentine's Day and Glamour Shoot
"My second shoot with Colin consisted of some lighter looks involving both our wardrobes, Colin was great to work with again and worked smoothly within creating some beautiful images with me.
We managed to involve my princess crown into some cute pastel pink valentines shoot looks where we sat there for at least an hour setting up the balloons and the backdrop setting for the idea I had wanted for the images. However with the ideas I had brought along to the shoot he did end up using the exact same back drop setting with similar props for a shoot with another model a few weeks after which caused both our shoots to look extremely similar without us knowing.
Even though I have only just started offering lighter looks within shoots Colin always makes me feel comfortable within our shoots.
After we created the valentines themed shoot we went forward after lunch onto my Beetle juice shoot idea which involved my stripy blazer with some small black pants and Colin's bowler hat, this look was another lighter look for me but Colin had insured me that the look suited me and that the images would make a great addon to my portfolio.
We then went onto one of my favourite pieces in Colin's wardrobe which was a beautiful blue jean jumpsuit , where we went onto a darker lighting setting. The jumpsuit fitted me like a glove and I always find my way back to it on every shoot. We created some beautiful portraits, full length fashion shots including some images within the jumpsuit for my content page, let me just say that one set of images have been one of the many favourite looks we have created together."
Cyndi - February 2020
"Had an amazing shoot, was super nervous. Colin put me at ease very quickly, lovely gentleman, a very fun shoot with some amazing results. Highly recommended." (Google).
"Had an amazing day with the wonderful Colin, made me feel super comfortable had an awesome shoot, was truly left blown away by the images, thank you so much, highly recommended." (Facebook)
Kat - February 2020
"I recently had the pleasure of working with Colin again and as always it was a sheer joy to work with him. We came up with some great images, that I'm extremely happy with. Colin was very professional as always and we had a lot of laughs!"
Tracy - January 2020
"I just want to say a massive thank you to Colin. I needed a photo to add to a very special award id been given. I knew i wanted a really special photo of me and the only way to get this was to seek out a professional photographer. I contacted Colin after looking through some of his work on his web site. Not only was I impressed with his work but his costs compared to other photographers were extremely reasonable. I came to Colin quite nervous but Colin and his lovely wife were so welcoming I was soon at ease. Colin took his time and took a series of photos of me in different head and shoulder positions. He was so lovely i felt i'd made a friend at the end of the shoot. The first photo came through to me later that day. I couldn't believe his efficiency. But best of all I can honestly say hand on heart I am overwhelmed with the photos. They're spectacular!!! I posted one immediately on my face book and the comments I have received couldn't be more complementary. I can't believe how wonderful the photos are. My goodness this man is an artist!! I still feel on cloud 9 from the images. I wish I hadn't waited for a moment in my life that needed a professional photo because it has boosted my self esteem so much. I would recommend Colin to any one. He's truly amazing. Thank you so much Colin."
Carrie (Second Shoot) - January 2020
"A second shoot with Colin, and we still played with the contrast of dark and light themes but this time, experimenting with dress wear and the colour scheme of pink and black. I loved the outcome of the images, they resonated with me so well and I cannot wait to work with Colin again."
Sammie (First Shoot) - January 2020
"There is so much good things to say about my shoot with Colin. After months of speaking to Colin regarding a shoot we finally got the chance to work together and it was honestly as amazing and fun as I hoped.
Colin's pre communications was on point and professional from the start to the finish, he was friendly, creative and easy to talk to and fun be around not only that but his hospitality skills was amazing and made me feel right at home while I felt comfortable within the shoot.
He had such an beautiful selection of wardrobe pieces that went perfectly with the wardrobe pieces I had brought along also, I didn't get the chance to use every piece that I wanted to but I will be able to create many of awesome looks with them pieces on our next shoot.
Not only did Colin help me branch out of my comfort zone but he was very patient with me when it came to me trying more lighter looks compared to my typical day to day looks and made sure that I felt comfortable and happy throughout the whole shoot.
We worked together so smoothly to the point half way through the shoot we were already discussing so many other shoot ideas.
Colin was such a honour to work with and I can't wait to work with him again.
I highly recommend to all beginners and professional models
Thank you for an amazing shoot, see you soon.
Dela - December 2019
"It was such a good day, I didn't realise modelling could be fun like that! I loved your dressing up wardrobe, you have a great sense of style. Thank you for all the advice on posing for the shots, I will be practicing in front of the mirror for the next photoshoot."
Mima - October 2019
"Colin is wonderful!
He has a very calming aura which is good if you are a new model or are nervous. He is very kind, positive, encouraging and professional.
I thoroughly enjoyed my shoot with Colin and look forward to doing more! He allows the model's creative side to flow, listens as well as directing well.
I 100% recommend Colin. Most certainly one of the best photographers I have worked with! - and lunch was lovely too! Haha!
Thank you Colin, I look forward to seeing you again!"
Rachel Paginton (Gershwins) - October 2019
"My shoot with Colin was my first ever time doing anything like this! I was quite nervous but Colin was very calming and helped me come out of my shell. The shoot was really professional and Colin was happy for me to do what I wanted as well as provide direction if I needed. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone especially those who are new to this!"
Chelsea - October 2019
"I had a second shoot with colin which was amazing he helped build my confidence back up which is just what I needed. We got to shoot a outfit I had recently made which again colin done a fantastic job of making it look truly stunning. I Would recommend colin to anybody as he is a great photographer but also very welcoming when visiting him and his studio.
Always a pleasure to work with Colin and his fantastic wardrobe selection, We share many ideas and I look forward to many shoots in the coming future."
Hannah - September 2019
"Had a shoot with Colin 2 days ago at his home studio. He picked me up from my house which was really kind since it saved me having to faff around with trains and buses, I was running late as well and Colin moved the time back to allow for that. Conversation was easy and it wasn’t awkward at all, we got to his home and I met his lovely wife, we shot for a while and then had lunch together which was really sweet and much appreciated then got back to shooting again. Colin was very good at communicating what he wanted and we worked together really well. It was a very nice fun and relaxed day. Would highly recommend."
Shannon - September 2019
"This was my second time shooting with Colin, this time we chose a location shoot. Colin was there early and greeted me before we continued with the shoot. We managed to get a high amount of stunning images in such a small area and the time went very quickly. Very pleasant to work with, would recommend."
Lina - September 2019
"I've done two shots with Colin. He is a professional, very talented, safe, understanding, organized and relaxing photographer also a friendly personality. I felt relaxing environment in his studio, i was myself and comfortable. I am photographer as well, i was amazed of his photography skills. i learnt a lot from him. We got a great results ! The photos we produced were incredible, high quality and i could't be happier. Definitely i would recommend Colin and i will back again."
Carrie - August 2019
"As a model working with Colin for the very first time, I am utterly impressed and astounded with the similar vision we shared for our first test shoot in the studio. I brought along a range of outfits and we both decided that we would like to show the progression from dark to light. I would strongly recommend Colin as a photographer, we had a great time on the shoot and had a bunch of laughs. I felt at ease with the shoot and the range of emotions showed in the photos he took for me. Thank You Colin, I look forward to working with you again."
Iana - August 2019
"Definitely recommended! Had a lovely shoot with Colin about a week ago. It was first time I had work with him and I found it very easy and relaxing. He given me the time needed to get ready for shoot in his studio which is very well organised, there were nothing I would need and not be able to find, very handy! Colin had a very professional approach and let me come with my ideas without imposing or insisting only on his owns. Even it was firs time to shoot with Colin, I’ve enjoyed and I believe we got a great results! He also been very kind to pick me up and drive me back home. Thank you Colin for the beautiful shoot!"
Chelsea - August 2019
"Great first shoot with Colin.
I was made to feel very welcome by Colin and his wife.
We shared many ideas and share similar style. Colin has a fantastic selection of outfits / styles to choose from with many creative ideas.
Looking forward to our next shoot."
Mimi - August 2019
"I had my first shoot with Colin yesterday and it was a very productive day! Colin had already been at the location I had suggested for an hour prior to my arrival so scout out the best spots. This made things a lot easier to get the ball rolling!
In the first instance I felt a little bit awkward due to being out of my comfort zone and having only known Colin for 5 minutes but that soon changed when we both found a way that worked for both of us! With many costume changes and a quick coffee stop we managed to create some beautiful images and I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished products!
Overall, Colin is a really lovely, warm person who certainly makes the day a lot of fun! We have already arranged another shoot with lots of different styles! Can’t wait!
Thank you again for a fabulous day!
Beth - July 2019
"Colin showed up on time, had scouted the area for an hour already so already had a few ideas upon my arrival. The images I have are beautiful and he let me choose my favourite images to be edited. Couldn't ask for more!"
Chloe - July 2019
"Well to start with, we are shooting again on the 17th of August. So it is evident we are going to have plenty of collaborations. Going to a beach this time, we both brought a selection of outfits and accessories to work with and it went so well! He is an absolute laugh and we spent the time having so much fun! It's really hard to narrow down my favourite images and also can't believe he already has a first edit up yesterday!
See you in a few weeks my fellow nutter."
Kenika - July 2019
"I had a great first shoot with Colin. We got on well from the start and he made sure to be aware of my style and interests. We gave my idea on 'domestic diva' a go and Colin was very encouraging as it took me a while to build up my confidence. We didn't get to do all the looks we hoped for as we only managed to squeeze in the shoot before my flight but Colin was very understanding.
Looking forward to work with him again when I'm back - thank you for a lovely shoot!"
Katy - July 2019
"I did my first shoot with Colin and he was amazing. Both Colin and his wife are so welcoming. His wife made us lunch which was beautiful! Down to earth people. As it was my first shoot, I was a little nervous which Colin picked up on and put me to ease straight away. He helped me with directions when he could tell I was looking for some. 100% recommend Colin. He has a great little workshop and dressing room, with plenty clothing to choose from.
Thank you Colin!"
Blondetravels - July 2019
"An amazing first shoot with Colin! He is a great person to get a long with and we clicked right away enabling us to get absolutely fantastic content in the studio and on location to end with! We had such a laugh, and it creates a very relaxed environment to shoot in with such a lovely person. The photos we produced are incredible and I couldn’t be happier with how the day went. He was very accommodating providing me with food throughout the day and provided transport too (as I live in Exeter). An overall wonderful day and I look forward to working with him more regularly. I would recommend to EVERY model. Thanks Colin!"
Nicky Phillips - July 2019
"I have just had the most wonderful shoot with Colin at his home studio. Colin was wonderful, great pre comms. The shoot went so well, we chatted, we laughed, we got some amazing images. I look forward to the next time.
Thank you for having me.
Chloe - July 2019
"I've done two shoots with Colin so far and before the second shoot was done we had a third shoot booked in! Colin is a right laugh and a proper gentleman, encouraging creativity and 'naturalness' within shoots, allowing individuals to be themselves to the highest degree and allowing independence within a shoot. Honestly, we plan to shoot closely and collaboratively for quite a while so keep an eye out on our images!
Thank you Colin for all you've done so far. you talented nutter, you.
UPDATE: we will be going on to our 5th shoot soon and I'm really looking forward to it as it's going to be a massive creative dive for both of us! We really get along well and constantly feed off each other's creative directions"
Carla Monaco - June 2019
"It was great to catch up and work with Colin again on the Chris Conway workshop earlier this month down in Paignton, Devon.
Colin is always super lovely, easy going and 100% professional, always producing top quality images.
Thank you so much for a great shoot.
Adeline - June 2019
"Had a wonderful first shoot with Collin on Friday, was so polite, bubbly and welcoming ☺️ Felt immediately comfortable and spent time getting to know one another during our shoot. Will definitely be shooting with him again and I look forward to it ☺️
Highly recommend, Thank you again
Lillly-Belle - June 2019
"Had another shoot with Colin, so many now, I'm loosing count! But each one is unique in its own way and we still have plenty more to come.
Our original plan for the day was to head to the beach for a shoot, but due to the weather, thankfully we had Colin's lovely studio to fall back on.
Mixing up Colin's clothes collection and some outfits I had brought along, we thought was a great combination that worked together and complimented each other.
We worked our way though a few sets, with breaks for coffee and a delicious homemade lunch too, Colin looks after his models.
We finished the day having already booked the next date in! x"
Chloe - June 2019
"Colin is very talented, organised and well prepared as he made a mood board. The setting was calm and relaxing and we made some stunning work. An absolute pleasure to be around and work with, also was very accommodating by providing food and communicating when I felt seriously drained. We are already planning our next shoot!
Thank you again Colin for a fabulous shoot 😊"
Freya - June 2019
"Colin got in touch asking if I could take him to many locations I know around the moors for some awesome shots so of course I obliged Colin is such a joyful character and easy to get along with. He brought all the equipment he needed for the shoot and was even nice enough to bring us lunch The sun was harsh on the day but Colin did his best to find the optimum place to take the shots from to get the best pictures possible.
We got some great shots throughout the day and I really do hope to model for Colin again soon."
Shannon - May 2019
"Has my first shoot with Colin on the 19th, he creates a very welcoming atmosphere. His home studio has a huge collection of outfits to choose and he lets you have free rein.
He works at a high standard and cooks a delicious bolognese!
Would definitely recommend."
Sophie - May 2019
"My first shoot with colin went amazingly!!
Lovely man and a great photographer, the only struggle was stopping laughing
The shots produced are great and he made me feel super comfortable, looking forward to working with him again."
Lilly-Belle - May 2019
"This was my fourth shoot with Colin where I went to his home studio. As usual, Colin looked after me well with coffee breaks and lunch. Not to mention lots of chats to plan our shoot accordingly with reference to mood boards he had printed out. I always admire Colin's excellent organisation, which also means being able to find outfits easily in Colin's fabulous wardrobe collection.
We both experimented with new styles and I left confident we got the shots we were after.
Colin is always efficient in sending back edited pictures in a quick time frame, which I love as I am always excited to see what we have produced!
Looking forward to our next shoot already!"
Trinity - May 2019
"Colin was wonderful to work with. Originally I came to the shoot as a Friend for another model. But, soon after having a look at his collection and sharing ideas with him, I had to jump in front of the camera.
Colin is sweet, skilled and prioritises his models comfort. To give an example, I have slight nervous issues which he was incredibly understanding about. He constantly provided reassurance and laughs and allowed us to take as many breaks as we needed. He provided transport too and from the shoot, and even made us a homemade meal.
I cannot wait to work with him again!"
Georgina-Grace - May 2019
Had a fantastic shoot with Colin and captured some fabulous images. He was very understanding about my request for a chaperone and even provided lunch lol.
Trinity - April 2019
"Very caring and lovely guy. Made sure I was comfortable and enjoying myself the whole time. Fantastic ideas and a great eye for his work"
Courteney - April 2019
"3rd shoot with Colin, and I’m sure we get better each time! We did a location shoot around Totnes and the outcome was great. Colin was just as easy to work with and professional as always and I already can’t wait to create more amazing images very soon. "
Lilly-Belle - April 2019
"This was my third shoot with Colin and we decided to go out on location in Plymouth city centre, finding quirky places to be photographed. Then we continued the shoot at my place.
Colin arrived on time and prepared with a selection of outfits. We had a relaxed yet productive day. We chatted lots, including the direction we want to head in which is always useful and produced some lovely images that I am proud of.
Colin was good at styling for the street fashion image we were going for and we was able to put together a suitable outfit to head out in.
He has a good eye for spotting ideal spots to take some interesting photos.
Colin and I are already planning another shoot!
Thanks for a lovely day, Colin! x"
Lilly-Belle - April 2019
"Second shoot with Colin and it went so well! I fully enjoyed myself from start to finish. We have so many ideas, there isn't enough time to do them all! But will be sure to come back again to do some more!
Colin goes above and beyond to ensure a productive and successful day. From hand painting back drops, having a vast wardrobe selection to choose from to providing lunch too! Very well looked after!
As for the images, I am so pleased with them! Colin tries different things in the studio to create the quality pictures we so desire.
Thanks again, Colin - highly recommend!"
Jade - March 2019
"Me and my partner worked with Colin recently, on a couple shoot.
It was different to every other couple shoot we’ve done in the past, which is exactly what we all wanted from it.
Colin was fun, friendly and professional to work with. We came up with some lovely ideas and had a very productive day.
Very happy and pleased with all of the images we’ve been sent back. I would love to work with him again as I love his work.

"Colin is amazing to work with super friendly and chatty, he has helped me tremendously with my modelling giving me tips and guiding me through what works and what doesn’t work. I have learnt a lot and would love to work with you again in the future."

"Colin is a truly remarkable individual from styling to post shoot the communication is second to none. He is warm, bubbly and full of professionalism. His commitment and drive to getting high quality results is admirable and his energy is simply infectious. I enjoyed idea bouncing beforehand as well as his flexibility during to adapt and work with ideas as they developed. As a model I highly rate Colin and have felt comfortable exploring all levels because he makes you feel at ease from the get go, and there is mutual respect and trust. Thank you for my images and I look forward to exploring future ideas together."

"Colin is a phenomenal brand photographer, I have worked with him both on branding and model photography and the results speak for themselves. I cannot recommend him highly enough and recommend you book a shoot with him if you want to create a unique and coherent brand identity."

"Had my second shoot with Colin today and had just as much fun as the first! We had so many ideas that we came up with and even though we ran out of time, we got some amazing sets which I’m super proud of. Colin is very professional, and makes you feel at ease, as well as having a great sense of humour! Thanks for another great day creating wonderful images!"
Aimee - October 2018
"I did a shoot with Colin back in October last year (2018). Prior to the shoot Colin was extremely communicative and organised (as well as during) and this made for a very well-planned shoot. Colin has lots of resources within his studio and despite myself having the flu, we came out with some amazing photos! I was able to use my own experience as a photographer and occasional model to help style and direct the shoot which made it even more fun and comfortable to work with. Would not hesitate to work with again Aimée"
