At the end of 2011 I found myself feeling a little stuck. I wanted things to change but I wasn't sure how to effect that change.
I had the opportunity to model in a variety of different styles with several photographers over the course of the day, as Ian made sure everyone had a chance to make the most of all the different locations and work with me one-on-one.
I had a lovely shoot with Ian last month at a beautiful house in the Peak District. It was bodypainting shoot for his book Liberated Ladies, for which we enlisted the help of a professional painter and combined this with my own paint work.
Had a most enjoyable full day shoot with Ian shooting at my home for his Liberated Ladies project - a sort of portrait in situ concept, showing models relaxed in their own environs and capturing their essence both style and character wise. In addition to being highly personable, professional and prepared - Ian IMHO takes outstanding photos.
Martin loved it. He was totally surprised. I can't even describe it, it was awesome!! I think he watched it 6 or 7 times in a row :-)
My husband first saw some of Ian's work showing in the village where he works and immediately was drawn to it. The piece of work depicted a pregnant lady and as we had recently learned we were expecting a baby we knew we wanted to capture this special time.

Tony's own words.
"Ian is as kind and considerate a photographer as he is creative and professional.
I shot with Ian a few weeks ago as part of his "Liberated Ladies" project after initially contacting him about working together as I really liked his style of portraiture.
Had a wonderful shoot with Ian today for his Manchester Nudes project [later renamed as Liberated Ladies]. He came with plenty of ideas, was very patient and gave excellent direction.
Had a great shoot with ian for his cheshire nudes project [later renamed as Liberated Ladies]. enjoyed the day, got some great images and ian was professional and chatty.
