    Hi apologies for the lack of info my friend usually sorts these things for me! I am based in SW London and willing to travel within reason!!!I am currently working with some of Londons top DJ's/Producers.. I am looking for a free shoot by a student photographer who wants to build their photographer's portfolio and possibly, someone who wishes to focus on the music industry once there career is in full swing! Unfortunately the student I worked with previously is away travelling for the next 3 months... I do understand in most cases the photo will only permit you to use the photo's for the model/artists photographic portfolio... The student I worked with previously was happy for me to upload the pictures on to youtube and social networking sites as a cover to promote my singles....

    Ah, that old chestnut. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    How about you sing at my daughters wedding, bring your own PA and lights, etc. The whole shebang. Oh, and can you record it, professional quality, you can use the recording for your demo, meanwhile I'll have a copy to do with what I wish... :rolleyes:

    Iv done many many free giggs over the years to build my Portfolio, top night clubs, bars festivals it goes on and on!!! Singing at your daughters wedding would not benifit me at this stage of my career as I will not benifit some at the stage they are at... but I will for some! I know this as I have done it befor previously and used to be a model also...... If you are not interested or are offended by my post I appologise I had a really good response from a site I used previously and just thought Id give this one a shot!

    Kind regards..

    I photograph live bands for a hobby. The only thing is that I live in South Devon, about 250 to 300 miles away. But I do have a couple of relatives in the London area.
    I don't charge for my pictures, all I ask is that if used then I am given a credit as either a link to my flickr or email.
    My pictures have appeared on a few band (mostly tribute bands)web sites.
    PM me with details if you are interested, as I am photograhing a few gigs in the coming weeks and also on 24 hour call out for work.

    Glenis, I'm happy to shoot for free on the basis that the shots are solely for use on official websites or profile pages eg Facebook, Myspace etc. Shots must be displayed as supplied (they carry a discreet copyright notice which must not be cropped off or obscured), I am credited and/or a link back to my site is included, and the shots are not forwarded for third party use.

    Although I live in Harrogate, I am in London at least twice a month with work. I have access to a small studio where I stay (N4) which is suitable for head shots and lighting for environmental portraits. Have a look at my website and get in touch if you're interested.
