I like the look of Ella Studios - some very high quality work there which definitely has a more editorial feel. It would be good to see some of her boudoir work to see if she makes any allowances for the requirements to appear more 'real'?

The shots she took for me are very natural. I told her I didn't want to look like a cheesy technicolour oiled-up glamour girl, and I don't - most of my shots are pretty soft and monochrome.

She has also just yesterday moved to a new studio in Vauxhall, which has an outside deck as well

I know this thread is a bit old now, but I just wanted yo say that I had photos done with Ella yesterday. I paid ?350 for the basic  package which  was 2.5 hrs and includes 8 pics retouched, and I am so pleased with them. Even without the retouching they look really good and I am so excited to see the finished result!

This was my first shoot with a female photographer and I really recommend it. Usually I am a bit wooden for the first 45 minutes or  so and I  only get good shots when I have started to loosen up a bit, by which point it's nearly over, but on this shoot I felt totally relaxed from the start so it was  worth every penny for me!

It doesn't include hair and makeup, but I did my own for the first time on a shoot but  I preferred to do this as  I am a bit fussy anyway.

Also, for  girls  on a budget who want to add a bit more variety or just starting out I noticed  she is doing a ?250 'top up' shoot with 5 retouched images included.

Anyway, all in all, it was my best shoot by a long way!  :)

I just got an email from Michael of Escort Exposure

Says on the site they have been around since 2002

Is this Michael from Velvet Park?

Thanks

Last time I had pictures taken with him was almost a year ago. I'd highly recommend him though!

I have had a couple of sets done in London and here are my thoughts on my experiences:

Joes Glamour - the backgrounds were bizarre (black and white lino and a english coutry garden backdrop??!!), same poses and backgrounds for all girls, and the retouching was too much and I looked really fake! My shoot was in a tiny studio in a  basement flat in earls court.

Michael in Chelesea  - I think he is escort exposure but i had a different website for him which I have forgotten. Pictures and experience were overall better than Joe's. Big proper studio  in Chelsea and female makeup artist stayed so I felt comfortable, but poses/backgrounds are same for each girl pretty much.

Moto - 1moto.com - in East London studio. (area felt a bit dodgy, would get a cab to the address). My friend had them done here and quality, choice of backgrounds and props etc was about the same  as Michaels, and I think about the same price range.

Gary Silver - not in London but thought I might as well add it. My friend used him in Brighton but felt he missed the mark quite a bit and she wasn't keen on these photos, some london agencies didnt feel they were good enough as there was too much going on with props and not enough flesh.

The verdict from my friend and I - Alec Fasani or Ella for our next sets London is so competitive and  there is nothing worse than  wondering if we would be earning more from better photos!

I used Gary Silver last year. He was good but he lacked props and backgrounds. Quite reasonable and his makeup artist was very good.

Oops sorry just realised I got mixed up again  ::). I used Jon Silver in Brighton.

First off I'll start by saying I'm not photogenic!  Clients are always surprised when they see me in real life as I somehow never look like my photos, so I need a photographer who is good with photoshop.

Secondly I'm not comfortable in front of a camera, ever!  So I need a photographer who will do his best to make me feel at ease.

Somehow I am struggling to find a photographer who fulfils both of those requirements without costing the earth.

Help please?

Failing that, does anyone know where I can pay to get raunchy photo's photoshopped?

Definitely, although you may wish you'd gone for a bigger package if you have the funds. I had the basic shoot with Ella last week, and have never been so delighted with images in my all life. I never even dreamt it possible to love photos so much, least of all of myself! I literally want a top up shoot asap and an extended one in a couple of months (although I will manage to control myself, just).

Ella, in my opinion, really is amazing. I could use almost every single snap she took (approx 80) if I wanted. The 8 she edited are outstanding. Actually I'm going to ask her to edit a couple more.

I'd be amazed if you weren't totally thrilled with the results if you decide to go for it.

Do you know somebody who has decent studio with nice furnitures: sofa, beds, bathtub, etc. ?
He came in the morning and woke me up with killer instinct. Wish I could stop this now.

I?m not sure if I should be posting this under this section or under the Q&A section...
I was booked in for a photo shoot next week which I just had to cancel due to let?s say a ?breakdown in communication? with the photographer.
I?d primarily like to get recommendations from the ladies on this site about any good/outstanding photographers they?ve used.
If you?re a photographer reading this please feel to PM me but I would prefer to book someone on recommendation. Sorry to be blunt but if you?re an amateur with little or no experience, thanks but no thanks. I had a quick search of previous threads relating to this but some of them must be dated as the couple of people I called/emailed, I could not get hold of.
Things you need to know: I?m based in London and looking for a studio shoot or on location (hotel, booked by me). I?d like a professional, experienced person purely because I want some really nice professional photos. Finally for any of you that have read any of my previous posts you will know I am tight cow lol so please only recommend photographers with good/realistic charges.
Please feel free to post any recommendations on here or if you prefer, PM me.
Thank you as always. x

I know a guy who works in Angel from a private studio. He is totally professional and takes very classy photographs. He's also very reasonably priced, there's no rush and he has loads of sets to work with. I was really nervous getting my kit off in front of the camera for my escort photographs, but he really put me at ease- total gent! This is his website - tell him that Rose sent you... http://www.levenson.co.uk/glamour/main.php
