PHOTOGRAPHERS I HAVE WORKED WITH

(mm*230210 studio location shoot) x1
I guess if you are young and as skilled and talented as Gareth is, it would be very easy to become a complete pain in the arse. Gareth is anything but, certainly one of the nicest giys I've worked with. An excellent communicator, puts everyone else at ease around him and works bloody hard.
I only hope his future career still leaves him time for modelling,everyone should have some BBB in their port.

G may be the most talented male model I have ever worked with...he moves with ease (the karate).. he looks great (i think a young nick cage), his work rate is phenomenal as is his pre shoot help-we took over 3 months to set our shoot up with scheduling issues..it was worth waiting for. but hell don't listen to me,just work with him. he will blow you away.oh and sorry about the lying in the street thing.thank christ the cab got nigel not you (hehe)
cheers g.and thanks.i hope u like the pics

I worked with BBB earlier this year, and he proved to a keen Model willing to take direction and brought his own ideas to the shoot which was refreshing. He joined us at the Bunker 6 shoot and worked with many Photographers at the event and produced a large variety of styles which an some amazing Images

Worked with Gareth yesterday in a joint shoot with LydiaT.
The pre shoot communications were great so everyone knew what was expected and as a result I got some great images. Gareth takes direction very well as well as bringing his own ideas. A great chap to work with and I hope to do so again in the future.
Highly recommended.

Good shoot with Gareth at the 6th Bunker. He was well organised and prepared and this was crucial to success on such a tightly scheduled event.
Took good direction and although confessing to not being a lighting expert, was able to understand what I was trying to achieve and react to it well.

Shot with Gareth (and Rio) at the Bunker group shoot and had an absolutely fab time! Was really energetic and full of ideas - even well into a long evening! Highly recommended.

Pam Martin
(mm*894004 group shoot location) x 1
I shot with BBB and Rio at Bunker 6. The communications before hand were amazing. He understood exactly what we were aiming for and came well prepared. He was fun to work with on the day, and worked hard. The results speak for the effort that was put in.
BBB - I look forward to the next time we get to work together again.

I had the pleasure of shooting with Gareth at the October '09 Bunker shoot, and would recommend him without reservation. Gareth personifies the qualities that I look for - professional, organised, committed and reliable. The pre-shoot communications were superb, resulting in a very productive, well ordered shoot which produced some excellent images in spite of technical difficulties. I wish all models attained Gareth's standards.

Jay Fuller

I worked with Gareth & Rio on a martial arts themed shoot down @ bunker shoot 6, he is a hard worker as well as a joker that makes shooting fun and productive.
I would like to work with Gareth again in the future on a shoot and will recommend him 101% to anyone else thinking of booking.

OK, so he only needed a light dusting of powder but if that's all the excuse I needed to get on a shoot with Gareth, that's fine by me! He's a great character, dedicated, hard working and lots of fun. Looks pretty good too. Now all I need is another excuse...

The shoot was on the spur of the moment, I have chatted to gareth and his dad on the phone but never managed to meet the pair of them, They were a pleasure to meet and even more so to work with, the shoot was friendly and its hard not so smile when around gareth ,, all in all a fun couple of hours, and not forgetting the lovely Destiny1984, i must admit she did make him look better,

Gareth is one of the best ever models I have worked with in 5 years. He was really great to work with and has an incredibly natural pose.

Hi,
Good to work with you the other day.

Gareth and Rio came to me in so that Rio could get her portfolio started. Gareth was quite happy to take a back seat whilst i shot Rio however we shot some couple shots which i'm very pleased with. As officially chaperone Gareth didnt interfere and even came up with a few ideas for images for Rio as well.
As model Gareth is fairly experienced and disciplined and has a good rapport with camera and interacts well with his co models. I would not hesitate to have in back for some more work later on.

I had a shoot with Gareth and his karate team-mates. A fantastic bunch with huge support from parents, and in particular Geoff (Gareths Dad) who was very helpful, supportive and involved and yet managed to be totally non-interfering. Gareth arrived on crutches after a training accident but when it came to posing he grinned and beared it. The poses these guys can manage are totally unique, very dynamic and very extreme. There is great potential here to achieve unique images. Great stuff!

Worked with Gareth yesterday afternoon. Good comms before the shoot, very relaxed in front of the camera. Takes direction well and contributes his own ideas to the shoot. Also had the pleasure of shooting his England team mate, Rio Smith, and she was brilliant for her first time. I hope to work with them both again in the near future. Thanks guys!

Gareth is a nice young lad, easy to get on with and looks after his body. Very much up for it and eager to please and wants to do well. Takes direction easily - in fact I think he could/should be pushed a lot more now that he's found his feet in front of the camera. I think some quality photographers should give him a chance and help him develop further.

I had the pleasure of working with Gareth yesterday. It was a fun relaxed shoot and Gareth is funny and entertaining. He took direction well, was well organised and came well prepared . I would highly recommend working with him and hope to do so myself again in the near future :-)

Had a great shoot with BBB today! Kept in touch, confirmed all details and was fun, professional and a pleasure to work with. He had some great ideas, put Michelle_S at ease and was happy to do anything I asked. Would work with him again anytime. Thank you G

Gothx
(nm location shoot group shoot) x 2
What can I say that has not been said already ! I found Gareth to be very professional and hard working, he takes direction well and is happy to explore new ideas and his own.
Keep an eye on this Model, and book him quickly as I feel that he will be in demand this year
Gothx

worked with Gareth on two shoots - a commerical shoot for his karate sponsor and a shoot for his portfolio - very nice guy, easy to work with and good results

All i can say is 'Gob smacked'! Gareth i must say is quite a natural and unique. I need say no more as it has all been written below and what i can say is he is very professional from start to finish.. It was a pleasure to shoot/work with Gareth and anyone who has a shoot booked with him he will not let you down. I certainley recommend Gareth and i look forward to working with him again soon.

I worked with Gareth and Francesca a few months back and although i don't normally shoot men, Gareth was good fun and a decent sort of bloke !

linton
(nm studio) x 1
Gareth was a cool character on the day, and coped with Beverley's charms in a very professional way (ahem), a good model with good facial features which would suit a lot of artistic lighting and scenarios, all in all a top bloke and male model

aoxomedia
(mm*studio) x 1
Enjoyed the shoot with Gareth, Rachel and Jack very much and they are all very welcome to return anytime in the New Year. These are three talented athletes who will all be representing their country next year and I am very proud to be associated with them. I would also recommend Gareth as a fine male model but I don't want his head to get too big. Only joking Gareth, you're a top man.

muppett tog (x2)(studio) (location x2)
I had the pleasure of working with Gareth and thoroughly enjoyed the shoot. He works hard, takes direction well and above all has a great personality which made the shoot a lot of fun! I would not hesitate in recommending Gareth highly

ability (studio)
Having worked with Gareth I can say without a second thought, book a shoot with him if you dare ;-)
It will be fast and exciting.Gareth was great to work with. Took direction very well and was lots of fun.
A really nice and very fit young man. I would work with him again at any time.

pamperd (studio) (location)
I thoroughly enjoyed working with this young man. He is honest, dedicated and committed. He is willing to try anything and works extremely hard. He takes direction well and is able to get into character, but is also happy to come up with ideas of his own to make the shoot a success.
I am more than happy to recommend this young man and look forward to the opportunity of working with him again.

Gareth arrived on time and was enthusiastic, friendly and cooperative. I got the shots I was looking for, hope to work with him again in the future.

kk1 (group shoot)
I worked with Gareth today and can highly recommend him. His modelling skills are excellent, has his own brilliant ideas and communicates well. He is hard working, confident and easy to get on with, comitted, reliable and immaculately turned out. What more can I say....just book him !!

syess (group shoot)
great guy, very pro-active, would definitely work with again.....maybe you should as well?

david l (group shoot)
I worked with Gareth at the slipland shoot a couple of weeks ago. He is a highly professional model, who can take an idea, and turn it into a picture. He throws himself in to the shoot with enthusiasm, and can create a variety of looks to make the photographer's job really easy.
Highly recommended.

bun (group shoot)
This gentleman rather surprised me at the kinkyboots shoot today! I hadn't shot any male models before, and this was such a fun experience. Luckily it seemed we were on the same wavelength and had a hillarious but still very productive shoot- he had loads of ideas and indulged my slightly mad ideas whilst maintaining a straight face.... mostly! I saw him working hard all day, and I'm really pleased with the results we got! Thanks BBB!

ace (x 2) (group shoot)
Really hard working and takes direction well, works and interacts with other models well. Mature beyond his years, a distinct asset and a versatile look. I think he could do well as a commercial model. Hope to work with Gareth again.

cruiser (group shott)
Worked wit Blackbeltboulevard at the sliplands group shoot,not worked with a male model before so was not sure how the shoot would work out,but simply put,,,
Gavin was great to work with and would work with him again if the chance arose

Andrew G (group shoot)
I worked with BBB alongside Michelle_S at a group shoot.
He was calm and composed, with a wide wardrobe. He conducted himself professionally at all times, and he has a good instinct for posing himself in whatever situation he's in.
Top chap, well worth working with.

slipland (x2)(stylist) (studio and location)
I have had the oppurtunity to work with Gareth from very early on in his modelling career. He is a professional and very enthusiastic. He will work very hard prior to a shoot with excellent communication, ideas and a true desire for the shoot to be the best it can.
Work with this guy if you can, you are missing out if you don't.

cocoon (location shot)
Workd with Gareth and Shoy on a shoot on Wednesday. Very open to ideas and took direction well. A pleasure working with you, and we hope our paths will cross again. Jeanette and Kim

Finally had the chance to work with Gareth! For the Bunker 6 shoot, we plotted, planned and portrayed characters from Kill Bill (I the psycho schoolgirl, and he a villain in disguise). The shoot went very smoothly with Gareth so professional, easygoing and fun it was such a pleasure to work with him. I would definitely work with him again and thoroughly recommend him!

LydiaT (nm) (group shoot/location/bunker shoot 2009) (1096267)
Hello
Reeeally enjoyed our shoot we must do it again when you get back from Morocco. We should try doing something that we both don't normally do for the shoot, like no karate etc but just something fun and unique. But...especially fun!
Goodluck with the whoop assing over there and see you when you get back hun.

Hi had the priviledge of working with Gareth, He is a good looking guy with lots of potential of becoming a model ... Shame though he wants to be the next Jean Claude Van Damme - God what am I saying.... Yummy lol.
Seriously though, If you have the opportunity of working with Gareth then grab it as he is great at taking direction and is looking fot the same results as a photographer -- "that one shot".
