Chris arrived right on time and brought all of the equipment he needed including some very heavy lenses. Chris is a really laid back and easy to talk to guy and was such a hoot to model for. It was a shame that there were so many people that kept coming past the fairly remote location we wanted to shoot at, but we carried on and found another beautiful place to shoot too.

Chris had a keen eye for composition for some awesome shots and was very happy to listen to my ideas for shots too Smile I think we got some really awesome shots and I can't wait to model for him again in the future. 100% recommended.

Kay Marie http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/kay-marie A great shoot with Chris today. It had been a few years since we last worked together but such a great shoot. Back of the camera shots look amazing and I can't wait to work with him again. Kay

Tania http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/tania This is the second time I’ve shot  with Chris, he’s excellent at seeing a location for the first time and seeing places to shoot, his lighting skills are brilliant and sorted very quickly with the occasional tweak and balancing the light so the image looks right. Camera wise, technically spot on, and the images looked superb on the back of the camera, his feedback to me is good and its great fun to shoot with him, time flew by.

I’m keen to work with him again and is highly recommended.

Jezebelle ( Em ) http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/jezebelle-em I got to shoot with this fabulous individual recently and had an awesome shoot, he is a very fun person and has so many fantastic ideas that looked great on the back of the camera! I can't recommend Chris enough to all, he is super respectful and is a legend with lighting

Jezebelle ( Em ) http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/jezebelle-em Chris and I have worked together three times before: it's always fun, and we seem to work together easily and without stress. Today, at Catfish Studios, we were taking pictures of Jezebelle, and we achieved a great range of lovely results. Chris is easy to work with as a fellow tog: he has definite ideas about what he wants to do, and works this in easily with others' plans. More importantly, he's extremely considerate of the model: polite, supportive and considerate. And - unlike me - he's always thoroughly organised!

Thanks - again - for your company, your ability, and your steadiness as a shooting partner: you do make everything exceptionally easy!

Best wishes,

John

Laura Urbex http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/laura Had a shoot today with Chris - this was the first time we had worked together but I definitely feel like we clicked almost immediately. Chris had responded to a rare TF casting I put out a week or so ago - his pre-comms were great and he arrived at my house on time to pick me up and was kind enough to drive me to a location in Gloucestershire for an urbex lingerie & fashion shoot. It took a couple of minutes to find the location but he didn't let it phase him!

He's got a very good eye for detail, which is what I loved about shooting with him - you can tell that he knows what he's doing and that he loves doing it. He works effectively but in a very relaxed manner to get the best out of a shoot and I'd happily work with him again (hopefully I'll get to soon). I saw some really great images on the back of the camera and I think he was happy with the results, too.

Thank you for today, I had great fun & can't wait to see the end photos. I would definitely recommend Chris to any model.

Laura

Keira http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/keira During my recent tour I had an amazing first photo shoot with the lovely Chris: he teamed up with John Duder (who I had worked with once before) and quite often it can be challenging to balance groups or even pairs when photographers shoot a single model because different people have different creative ideas etc. but I cannot stress how perfectly the afternoon worked with such a lovely amicable flow and the two different styles of photography were brought to the surface beautifully, despite the fact that sometimes both were shooting at the same time and I was in a similar pose. It worked so well and I can recommend to any model that is due to be arranging a shoot with Chris: whether one to one or if he's teaming up with another photographer: you will have a blast and the results will be epic. Smile

The location we worked from was Joel Hicks Photographic where I have shot quite a number of times: Chris made an active effort to tackle ideas that were totally different and innovative. He was also really positive about my ideas being suggested into the shooting process which is a really lovely trait of Chris: he see's the model as a team member with useful pointers to add just as much as he is photographically observant of a location as he scans for killer shot opportunities. Even when we did a quick tour of the grounds upon arrival over a cup of tea - Chris was noticing things right away and his passion for carefully composing a beautiful image became evident from first meeting him. When you see him in action is uber inspiring as he's in all sorts of strange angles to get the framing of the picture exactly how he wanted it - John Duder caught some amazing behind the scenes shots in-between turn-taking and Chris can often be seen laying in various strata pointing his lens at me to get the shot! Big smile So we sure blitzed the ground/outdoors: (it was actually raining in the morning hence our first set was completed in the workshop) but after it cleared up we ventured out and I was so well looked after - coat passed over promptly in-between sets. Goes to show that mother nature doesn't have to ruin your shoot at all! We then wandered to the cabin and utilised the natural light indoors; Chris is fantastic in challenging lighting situations and this was the set where his lighting know-how flourished as it was getting the right balance of light and finding ways to hang reflectors in the most non-practical places which tested us! Big smile But all was achieved with ease, several dozen amazing images later we were calling it a wrap for our session and looking forward to seeing the epic edits, and they are rather fine indeed!

Chris is a really sweet person, totally professional with his etiquette and shows unconditional positivity and courtesy to everyone that is involved in a photoshoot. In-between hammering the awesome images, we had laughs over tea and everyone just got on like a house on fire! It really was a fun shoot and I really look forward to working with Chris again! Big smile

Big recommendations from me! Thanks Chris!

Keira http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/keira Joint shoot with Chris yesterday - the fourth such outing.

Simply, he's so good at what he does, so easygoing and nice, that it's always a relaxing delight to work with him.

Considerate of the model, and focussed on wonderful results.

Working with some togs, it's a race, a competition, which I find hard work. With Chris, it's all relaxed, good teamwork. It's always nicer and more productive, I find, when the two of you complement each other: we get entirely different results - even when we are shooting simultaneously.

Looking forward to Outing Number Five. Models: you will love working with this man !

John Duder

Em Theresa http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/em-theresa Chris and I had our second shoot on easter day at The Natural Light Studio, we planned to shoot a bit on location as well but Chris decided it was a little too chilly and didn't want me to be uncomfortable (much appreciated! Big smile ). Chris' pre-shoot comms are spot on just as before, and on the day he was just as friendly and kind to work with, his eye for an artistic image is as keen as ever and his approach is very collaborative. Working with him is always a pleasure and the edits are super! I'd be very happy to shoot with him again (in fact we have already discussed a few ideas) and recommend him to other models. Thanks again Chris! Smile

Pozers Studio http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/pozers-studio

This was the very first time that Chris has shot at PoZers and I'm certainly hoping it won't be his last, his photgraphy work is stunning and exceptionally artistic and just the sort of style that is right up my street. Chris was exceptionally punctual and arrived with stacks of ideas and bits and pieces for the models casting call, of a Military styled shoot.

It isn't often we have a casting placed by a model for a photographer, so it was refreshing to see how this panned out, as it is usually the photographers project, direction and wardrobe and accessories for this sort of shoot, so it was wonderful to see the model giving the photographer direction for what she wanted, and I have to say that Chris remained thoroughly professional at all times and was a total gentleman and exceptionally patient all the way through.

It was obvious that Chris had done this style before and he was a natural for directing the models poses to suit the theme, genre and her body shapes etc. and he remained a totally gentleman and professional throughout, ensuring that the model was getting the most from every shot, and willingly shared every single image with the model and myself throughout the shoot. I am really excited to see the image from the shoot, unfortunately as they are being published, I have to be patient, but this makes the anticipation even greater and I know I won't be disappointed with the finished result and I know the models going to be over the moon with them.

I really can't recommend Chris enough and I will be sharing his work with all models looking to build their portfolios, as his style, images and professional attitude is exactly how we present ourselves at PoZers. Chris is great fun to be around and really cares about the models well being, just like us. Really excited to have him back very soon. Thank you Chris and I look forward to working again with you very soon.

Kayla http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/kayla I had my first shoot with Chris at PoZers today, we were shooting military pin-up for my application to model for a charity. Chris's pre comms were fantastic and we were on the same wavelength right from the word "go", we shared similar ideas, he was fantastic at directing me, knew exactly what he was doing and he was exceptionally friendly and made me feel very relaxed. We got some fantastic shots and had a laugh along the way. 10/10 would certainly recommend to any model of any experience, I would definitely work with Chris again !! Thankyou for an awesome day Smile

Em Theresa http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/10/em-theresa Chris booked in to shoot me at the Old Chapel for my model day there! His pre-shoot communications were spot on, and he had very clear ideas about sets he wanted to do with me. He even had a pdf of dance poses he sent over which was extremely helpful. We shot a bit of fashion, portraits, art nude body shapes and ballet (en pointe and not)..and a teeny little bit on aerial hoop Smile he turned up early, and was very friendly and pleasant to work with, just an all round good shoot and some awesome edits up on the same day! Very much recommended by me, and I would gladly shoot with Chris again myself. Many thanks Em Theresa.

Fashion Glamour http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/fashion-glamour I had a recent shoot with Chris, the objective was fashion in natural light, the locations I wanted were in shade and Chris managed to balance the available natural light with flash and made the look very natural, his lighting skills / technical know how and camera work are excellent as is his banter during the shoot, making me feel special, whilst getting the images I wanted from the pre shoot comms. Highly recommended for his technical ability, as a photographer and a gentleman.

Geoff Bizouarn http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/6/geoff-bizouarn Just recently had one-to-one tuition with Chris and I have to say, I came
away  feeling very impressed and totally satisfied that it was time well
spent. Chris has a genuine relaxed but, reassuringly professional approach
to photography and he really has made sure I totally understand all the
bits I'd been unclear on with extra quiz style questions via email which
was a great surprise and further confirms his commitment to making sure
that no time was wasted.
It may come as no surprise that I would recommend Chris to anyone needing a
little tuition or even some great company to shoot with.

Robyn 29th April http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/robyn-29th-april I worked with Chris for the first time a few weeks ago alongside John Duder for a last minute shoot at Coco studios. Chris was very friendly, professional and easy to talk to.
 

We got on great and he gave good direction all throughout the shoot as well as frequent feedback so I could see the kind of thing we were getting for each set. Chris and John also seemed to work really well together and bounced ideas off of one another which also helped to set a great atmosphere.
 

I felt totally comfortable working with Chris and would certainly do so again in the future! A great shoot all round Smile Thank you Chris and sorry for the late reference!
 

Highly recommended to other models and photographers Smile

Robyn B http://www.chrismillsphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/robyn-b Chris and I shot together today for the second time, and it was just as fine an experience as the first session. He's quiet and calm - and knows his onions (and photography!) We find it easy to agree, and also - and this is the magical bit I think, - can shoot the same model simultaneously, getting different results, rather than competing to photograph from the same spot.He has a gentle and understated way with models, and it makes it easy for everyone to respect him, and get on with the job, while having fun. Mr Quiet Efficiency.

All went great Chris was friendly and patient and worked well with both our ideas. The only thing was time went too quickly.

 

I am looking forward to seeing the pictures.

 

It was a most enjoyable shoot and I would be happy to recommend Chris to other models.
