Recommendation from me is Ella Studios. She is pricey but she is incredibly professional and a lovely person to work with. She gives you direction (perfect if you have no modelling experience), around 6 outfit changes during your shoot, and she will talk through options for the style of shoot you want first so you know you will be happy with the photos. Her studio is at very discreet location in central london. She will then give you 8 touched up photos within a few days of the shoot (if my memory serves me correctly, it has been a while since I last saw her, it might be 10 now but she can confirm I'm sure!) and although you can tell they have been tweaked a little, she does it in a way to make you look glam, glossy and absolutely bloody gorgeous! I would marry the woman if I could!!  ;D

Hi Carla, I have told Joanna in the past about Ella Studios but she said that is out of her price range at the time. Ella used to do a portfolio at ?350 now it has rised upto ?440 without make up and hair, but if you did want the makeup and hair it would cost you ?680 it is slightly more expensive now ! but her work is very good, the photos are beautiful! it depends if your willing to pay that price and how much money you have really. Escort exposure guy who does Bunnies of london photos charges ?330 at the moment, he did a beautiful portfolio for this girl at Max's Angels, the photos were really stunning. There is also another tog called Alex fanasi or something he charges ?950 for the whole day and that is very expensive ! photos are amazing but I think very overpriced! x

I know two lovely photographers who are both much cheaper than this. The guy that did my photos (look at my AW profile: Violet Rose) is great, but I'm not sure how much of this work he wants to do, as he's more of an art photographer. The other guy I know of, but haven't used, is supposedly also cheap and good. Get in touch if you'd like details. V x x

I did a shoot with a lovely girl in her apartment in Canary Wharf.  She's just starting out so not pricey but she was really lovely and I like the photos I  a lot.  They are lightly edited and look quite classy, not playboy glamour

PM me and I'll give you a link to my site so you can have a look at her work :)

Alternatively, if she has a website (and she should!) you could save everyone a bunch of typing and pop the address in this thread - links are fine as long as they aren't repetitive/spammy and have been specifically requested by a thread in this section. :)

yeah! I'd like to know too! I've just fallen out with the chap who did mine who I offered up earlier, and I haven't got round to contacting the other guy someone recommended me (although I know him in another guise). It always helps to have options. V x x

I just want someone professional so I don't have to stand around in my pants in a cold studio arguing with some idiot about copyright - Ella sounds great and I've been meaning to ask her if she's happy signing my 'tog contract but then I saw her price increase and ZOMG. That's kinda a week's post-tax earnings for a part-timer like me. I'm saving up but it's still a bit painful!

On the other hand, I'm really not into this amateur 'tog business because I just have no interest in being part of someone's soft porn collection; I know it's modern timez and all now but yeah, I still want to be the only one with rights to images of my body. And I don't want pictures taken by anyone who I don't feel quite right about (so contacting a random "I'm so helpful, I'll take your picture for you!" guy is not an option) - so if anyone has any concrete personal recommendations, please add words and links to this thread! :)

I've heard Joe's Glamour Studio been recommended before - must re-Google and investigate. Has anyone tried him?

Hi Emily, Joe is a good photographer, but also so is Barry at http://www.glamourphotographylondon.com he does amazing photos and they are in superb quality ! I think he charges ?250 pounds for a 1-2hrs shoot. Joe's site is currently under construction ! he does some quite good packages, it's whatever takes your fancy.

this is the girl I did a shoot with - but she doesn't have any of her boudoir work on her site -

http://www.stormysloane.com/

A place I do *not* recommend is Gap Studios in Shepard's Bush.  Freezing studio and surly, uncommunicative photographer.  Lovely MUA though!

Barry I know! He did my current ones. ;) He's great value and yes, easy to work with but I'm a little worried about not having enough real variety in my galleries.

Will try getting in touch with Joe and that Sloane lady.

Hi guys, thankyou all for your replies  :)

I found Martin Levenson at www.levenson.co.uk/glamour.     Check out his gallery!  

Hes only 250 for a 3-4 hour shoot (90 extra with hair & makeup).   His pics looks great so I might use him.  

Joe's w/s is under construction but he has another one:  www.joesglamourstudio.com, has anyone used him before?

If that Joe King is the guy I know, going back 8 years, he was good to work with, and I was impressed with what he managed to do with me  :) And he has worked with some well known models in the past.

I got a recommendation for another guy - Alec Fasani - who has a nice portfolio but is, again, really expensive. He seems to have quite a bit of experience, though. I might just save up a bit more and go with Ella - I've never experienced a shoot with a lady 'tog and if she's good at being really instructive about poses and stuff, that could be best for my non-photogenic self!

He is very expensive. Good quality photos say a 1,000 words and very good for business.
