Searching for Models – to shoot in the Maldives!

That’s right – we’re looking for models to shoot a set of brand images in the Maldives next month 🙂 We’re shooting in two of the most luxurious Maldivian resorts in April, and are looking for two faces that can represent each of the properties. Sadly, we’re on a bit of a tight timescale, but for those interested in expanding their book and/or adding a campaign to their portfolio, this is a great opportunity. If you […]

Stephane General Manager Welcome Entrance Fountain Water W Hotels Singapore Sentosa Cove Up Close To Talents Photoshoot 2014 Starwood Group

W Singapore Sentosa Cove – #UpClose2WTalents

Normally when I photograph “talent”, it’s part of a modelling shoot or specific commercial imagery. To the industry, the term “talent” has certain preconceptions attached to it, but is a generally accepted term for the star of the show. So why would a hotel group insist on employing “talents” instead of staff? At the W Hotel Singapore – Sentosa Cove, it’s blindingly obvious : These guys really are the star of the show each and every day! In […]

Fashion & Fitness model – Alipasa Selimovic in Shanghai

It’s an industry I’ll always hold a huge amount of respect for – not only did I learn the foundations of my own photography from those I worked with as a model many years (and burgers) ago, but the techniques I was taught at the time stay with me to this day when it comes to posing others in fashion and fitness shots. Although primarily now shooting landscape and commercial work, every now and then […]

Danny Denkmayer – Channel 4’s Playing It Straight Finalist Underwear Shoot

This is Danny Denkmayer – one of the final four in Channel 4 and E4’s hit TV show “Playing It Straight“. The 2012 Series 2 contestant spent the series at Hacienda de los Hombres in Spain before being eliminated in the final episode. So – why was he in the studio? Simple : we were shooting for another set of adverts for Attitude, and the boys at Lick had drafted him in 🙂 He does however, […]

Dino and Georgio, the TOWIE twins shoot Lick’s Attitude Magazine Ad

The Only Way Is Essex’s Dino and Georgio Geogiades headed down to Meadows Farm along with a few of the other “Lick guys” to shoot for the new “fit as” Lick Underwear campaign last month – and what a great laugh the guys were 🙂 Shooting the day after your birthday is probably not the best of ideas – a bad head is extremely likely. Luckily, having spent the night before in Birmingham (which has […]

Portrait Model Photoshop Example - Image Digitally Manipulated Altered Improved - Paul Reiffer, Photographer

Can technology make a model? – Photoshop vs reality : who wins?

It’s been a long-running debate: “How much photoshop is too much photoshop?”. In the same way that the word “text” didn’t used to be a verb, the word “Photoshop” (obviously copyright Adobe) has become synonymous with retouching or “airbrushing” worldwide. As a digital photographer, it’s one of the key tools I use every day, and provides me with a truly “digital darkroom” when it comes to fixing those small imperfections that often appear when you […]

Intimate Couples Boudoir Photos Shoot - Alex Wilcox and Rebecca Bone Nude models - Paul Reiffer Professional London Photographer

Intimate Couples Photos – with Alex and Rebecca, Urban Boudoir Photography Series

Shooting a couple in a way that looks genuinely intimate can sometimes be a challenge. Those in a relationship can, at times, get “giggly” during the photo shoot and two models who are effectively strangers can be a little hit-and-miss, depending on their acting abilities. That said, it does present an opportunity to deliver photographs with a lot more story and emotion than solo shots often can and every now and then I get a […]

Sam (Samuel) Kneen - Male Fitness Underwear Model and Mr Gay UK Cardiff - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Photographer

Say Hello To Sam – Mr Gay UK from Cardiff

This is Sam Kneen – a current finalist in the overall “Mr Gay UK” competition which has seen its fair share of interesting publicity during the 20 or so years that it’s been around. The first image I uploaded of him onto Facebook prompted quite a few comments, and as a relatively inexperienced model, he’s certainly got a strong enough look to go far in the industry. We actually shot this series after completing a […]

Anna Marguerite Smith Fashion Commercial Female Model - Studio Shot - Paul Reiffer Professional London Photoshoot Photographer

Anna Smith – fine art nude model and dancer at the Southampton studio

It’s catch-up time again! After sorting out the second studio in Southampton, I took the opportunity back in September to give it a try with a model I’d never worked with before – Anna Smith (or Anna Marguerite, as she goes by for her nude work). Anna popped down from London for the afternoon, and after a little delay in getting things ready (it takes a bit of time to get comfortable with a new […]

Aaron Breckell – Studio Shots of a Male Fitness Model

Ring flashes have been around for years. They’ve been in and out of fashion more times than checked shirts, but they DO deliver a very specific “look”, which I love, which you can spot a mile off.  I’ve used a Lencarta Safari ring flash on many occasions, but it was time to give a different flash head a go. So, bringing Aaron (a relatively new model from Guildford) into the studio to shoot, we pulled […]

Attitude Magazine Look Book Fashion Edition for Lick Male Mens Underwear - Paul Reiffer, Professional London Photographer

The Lick Look Book – Attitude’s Fashion Edition 2011

Aside from all of the standard full-page adverts that Lick have been running each month in Attitude Magazine, for November, a special fashion edition is being launched. Not only will this feature in the next edition of the magazine, but a special iPad edition of the contributing ranges is being released – so here’s a selection of the range that Lick have got embedded into the 2011 “Look Book”, featuring a lot of their new […]

Lick Underwear Attitude Magazine advert with Nathan male model - Paul Reiffer Photographer

The latest Attitude Magazine ad for Lick Underwear – Feedback wanted!

The latest in the 2011-12 series of underwear adverts for Lick is just about coming out of Photoshop, but this month, there’s a little bit more time to make some adjustments. So, we’re back to the shoot we did with Nathan a few months ago – this time for the “fashion/style” edition of Attitude that’s coming up. Keeping it simple (and not quite so obvious as the previous jockstrap campaign) the current proposal is to […]

Baskit : Male Underwear and Swimwear – it’s competition time!

Who’s up for winning some FREE Baskit products of their choosing?  If that’s you, read on… 😉 My sample pack of their new range arrived this week, ready to shoot with some cool new models – along with an idea from the boys at Baskit : Let’s get some ideas from customers for the photo shoot, and reward them with some free products of their own to keep! Born in 1999, Baskit is a clothing […]

Laura Catton - Glamour model big brother nude photography by Paul Reiffer - Professional portfolio photographer

Laura Catton – Glamour and Nude model portfolio photography

This is Laura Catton, an established 21 year old glamour model from Hertfordshire, looking for some new images for publication. Laura hit the limelight some time back, after she exposed 2009 Big Brother housemate Kris Donnelly’s plan to falsify stories in the press, making him look more (ahem) “successful” than he was in reality when it came to the ladies. With that all done and dusted, it’s time to refresh her look with several publications such […]

Lick Attitude Magazine Advert Model Nathan Jockstrap Male Underwear Essex - Paul Reiffer - Professional London Photographer

Lick – The latest male underwear shoot. Model – Nathan

It’s that time again, when Lick underwear‘s new range has arrived and so it’s out with the old and in with the new – starting with a new launch advert in the September edition of Attitude for their new lines: Last year’s successful campaign in Attitude mag made a lot of use of one model in particular – so it was time for the guys at Lick to find some new models to shoot the […]

Mark Sharman, Jemma Perry, Models Couples Photoshoot - Paul Reiffer Professional London Photographer

Mark and Jemma – Two’s Company, Three’s a Photo Shoot

Every now and then I get an email from a model asking to shoot a “couples series”. A lot of the time, things just don’t work out – there are way too many things to go wrong last-minute but sometimes (just sometimes) things come together to make it work. Enter: Mark Sharman & Jemma Perry, two London models. A couple of weeks back, with some spare studio time and some rather last-minute arrangements, Mark and […]

Head Above Water Paul Reiffer ABIPP BIPP 2012 Professional Photography Awards Bronze Winner

International Photography Awards – My Submission

It’s that time of year again – the “awards season”. Ready with my entries for both the BIPP and RPS, I have decided this year that I won’t be submitting anything into the UK “Landscape Photographer of the Year” and instead divert that time, energy and money into a different (and in my view) more substantial competition:  The International Photography Awards 2011.  While the UK Landscape competition is strong, when I look at the panel […]

Baskit Underwear Male Model Bobby Chan - Professional London Photographer Photos Paul Reiffer

Baskit Underwear & Swimwear Test Shooting

During the past few months, I’ve been test shooting several new male models with a range of underwear and swimwear from Ken Loo at Baskit – a very successful Australian underwear and swimwear brand. So, having shot a reasonable amount of the range they sent in to the studio – I figured it was about time I introduced the world to some of the models along with a small selection of Baskit’s range 🙂 Without delay, here […]
