Danimarie – Collaboration
It has been my very great pleasure to work with Danimarie on various projects over the several years that I was producing competition and exhibition images. During that time we have become firm friends and even though I have now given up active photography she still visits me regularly.
Danimarie is a UK based commercial, glamour, lingerie and art-nude model and is a popular model with many photographers as well as one of the most sought after on the circuit. She likes to be involved in all stages of the creation of a picture and is not satisfied until the image is perfect.
At the time of producing this book she has been modelling for seven years and her work has won photographic awards in several well-respected competitions and exhibitions around the world.
She has been published in places such as News of the World, H&E Magazine, Lads Mag and on the Page 3 website.She is a very motivated individual who, not content with modelling alone, has an online agony aunt column and also interviews upcoming bands and musicians for an online magazine.
Although she has featured in several of my themed books over the years it was during one of her regular visits that Danimarie asked if I would produce a unique book for her that demonstrated the different types of work that we had done together. Of course I was more than happy to work with Danimarie on this project and this volume is the result.
Danimarie has been fully involved with the preparation of all these images including selection, editing and final compilation of this book. I hope that in the years to come she can look back on our work with the same pleasure and satisfaction that I certainly will.
Thank you Danimarie.

A comment from Danimarie
Garry R James DPAGB
Garry is an award winning photographer who has been behind the camera for fifty-four years. Apparently his passion for photography began when he picked up his mother’s box camera for the first time. He has worked in all sections of the photographic industry including studios, newspapers and public relations.
After deciding to change career and go into engineering he still indulged in his passion for photography and this led to some of his beautiful images winning numerous National and International awards.
He holds the distinction DPAGB awarded by the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB), is on the Roll of Honour and Life Member of Smethwick Photographic Society (SPS) and a member of The Disabled Photographers Society (DPS). He is a former Licentiate of both the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain (LRPS) and The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (LSWPP) as well as being a former Fellow of the British Institute of Management (FBIM) and Institute of Sales and Marketing Management (FinstSMM).
Garry and I have been friends for several years and I chose him to work on this book with me because he has produced many books in the past and his work is always outstanding. He is organised and has a great eye for detail and I knew he would help me produce something that we could both be proud of.
He is a smart and creative individual and a friend to all.
