  1. Such a great pleasure to shoot with Pablo, we met a week ago in his studio house, we had an evening shoot, and wow the result! Was a great experience to work with an experienced photographer. Pablo made me feel very comfortable,.. guide me through the poses.

    We had a very interesting conversation as well over a take away dinner 😃 …

    Was very useful to be able to stay In the guest room for the night, so thanks! I enjoy this shoot very much and I couldn’t recommend Pablo more highly!!

  2. Wow! What a truly amazing shoot. Pablo was a true host and I felt so comfortable with him. He was welcoming, chatty and made me feel relaxed. His home studio is fantastic and great to work in. Such beautiful natural light that comes into it. When I first arrived we chatted for a bit and he found out what sort of style I liked. It was great to see the images he had created before on his tv while we chatted.

    During the shoot he was respectful and a gentleman throughout. I was nervous to begin with but he really put me at ease. He showed me the back of the camera after each set and I was blown away by the pictures. For years I have hated pictures of my bottom but Pablo captured it in such a way that made me love it again. Which I am grateful for. I would highly recommend working with him if you want some sexy, classy boudoir pictures. He is really talented. I really hope I get chance to work with him again and try out his awesome bathroom! Thanks Pablo!

  3. I had the pleasure of working with Pablo Ray for the 2nd time on a project this week in London for a semi nude/fashion shoot. I was aiming to create beautiful, high fashion, chic yet sultry shots for promotional use for 2 different brands and of course, when thinking ‘sexy’ there is no better photographer I could have approached!

    Communication was clear and reliable and later when shooting at Pablo’s exquisite home -as allways- he was nothing but a kind and considerate host.

    Working alongside Pablo Ray is always and a creative, encouraging and rewarding experience and with his strong understanding of composition and natural lighting, I am never disappointed by the ‘simple’ but exquisite outcome that we acheive.

    Futhermore, his eye for styling and attention to detail is highly beneficial.

    I cannot recommend Pablo Ray highly enough and look forward to seeing more of his work!

  4. Pablo and I had our long postponed third shoot recently, to do a bit more “extreme boudoir” 😁 He was as I remembered very welcoming and pleasant to shoot with, an excellent host (makes a great coffee!) and good company which helps the working relationship no end. He is also excellent at what he does and directs in a very effective manner. The images are super too, exactly what I was looking for. I have no problem recommending Pablo to other models, thanks so much! 😊

  6. I had my first shoot with Pablo and, having followed his work for a while now, I came with high expectations… and I must say every single one of them was met – I’m blown away!

    Not only is he super talented, but Pablo is also a gentleman and a professional, who seemed to know exactly what he wanted to get out of the shoot. He had tonnes of good ideas and was very organised, which made the time go really fast too. Nonetheless, his place is super cool and his choice of music is perfect (which always helps)!

    Oh, and he makes some *really* good coffee 😊

    100% recommend and hope to work with Pablo again soon!

  8. Pablo Ray always hosts me and welcomes me with great hospitality. Sadly, I din’t get to work as much as I wanted to with him, but that’s just me being selfish. He shot a total of four sets in two days plus a little video. The artistic chemistry between us is always ever-growing and I can’t wait to work with him again. He is kind, professional, and obviously very talented. Highly recommended, see you again soon, Pablo!

  9. Stayed with Pablo for a few days with a fellow model Gracie. This was my first time meeting and shooting with Paul . We shot both solo and duo shoots.

    Pablos shoot is one of the most relaxed shoots i have ever been on . It felt so strange not to be jumping around everywhere . It paid off , from what i have seen from the images we killed it .

    He is a genuine guy , respectful , professional,and a great laugh.

    Thanks again Jessica x

    Really love genuine guy, very friendly and welcoming.

    I felt super comfortable during the whole shoot and we worked together well.

    Id thoroughly recommend a shoot if you like his style or your after something new!

    Id never done bondage style before so this was new for me but very comfortable and professional.

    and a quick turn around with photos,

    (I also had to cancel a shoot due to personal reasons and he was very understanding)

    Many thanks Pablo,

  13. Well, what can I say about the wonderful Pablo Ray! Not only is he an immencely talented individual with an extrordinary eye for the beautiful and unusual, but is the kindest and most giving people I have ever worked with. He was happy to home me for a few days, after travelling down from the north east to shoot in London, where I was made to feel completely safe and welcome. I had my own privacy, as well as clean and tidy accomodation.

    His nature towards me was nothing but that of a true gentlemen, as well as having a good scense of humour and honest nature, in general and while shooting.

    He gives great direction and was very encouraging throughout shooting and has a spontanious approach which gives truly unique results.

    I couldn’t recommend him highly enough and feel honoured to have spent the time with him.

  14. I had a shoot with Pablo in his home yesterday.

    pablo gave great directions and understanding of what he would like from the shoot.

    We got some really great images Using natural light and, as the sun was going down, got creative with using some warm artificial light.

    I am very exited to see the final images from our shoot and I would recommend him to every one wanting to work with him.

  15. Had my first shoot with Pablo, and wow what’s an amazing photographer! We did a series of sets to go onto Zivity and he was very helpful and articulate in what he was doing. When he told me he was using natural light and no back lights I was shocked, as previously I have found shooting in natural light very unflattering; well this is when you separate to pros from the amateurs as the shots he took were beautiful and he really exceeded my expectations and I was so happy with the results. Can’t wait to see the pictures and to work with Pablo again. Highly recommended.

  17. Pablo was actually the first photographer I ever worked with, and we have worked together several times since then. I always have fun shooting with him, and we have made so many great images together! Pablo is really good at giving direction, so working with him has always been very easy for me both when I was completely new to modelling and also now when I’m more experienced. I always love the results of the shoots with Pablo! He is also very friendly, and I’ve got to stay at his spare room a couple of times when I’ve needed somewhere to stay. I would highly recommend working with Pablo to anyone who wants some stunning new pictures for their portfolio. 😀

  20. Working with Paul was quite an experience.

    Paul was kind enough to put me up for a couple of nights so we could work together this week. He is personable, easy to talk to and an excellent host.

    Our shoot together was different to anything I have ever done before – Paul knew exactly what he wanted and there were several poses he put me in that really surprised me by looking good. The process of working through a set with Paul was fascinating and I really enjoyed being a part of the story evolutions.

    I would definitely recommend Paul and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

  24. I did my first shoot with Pablo at his beautiful house yesterday he came to meet me at the station and made me feel unbelievably relaxed thereafter 😊

    As this was only my second shoot I was still finding my feet with positioning my body, facial expressions etc. Pablo knows exactly what he wants and what works beautifully with your body, his direction is outstanding and at all times remaining a gentleman. He made sure I was happy/comfortable with everything and even letting me go over the images as we went on.

    I love your work, you have an eye for art that I appreciate and admire. Your images are beautiful and your energy is lovely.

    Thank you, looking forward to working with you again in the future.

  28. I’ve worked with Pablo quite a few times now, he’s just one of this photographer I can shoot with over and over again.. he is just fantastic at what he does. Firstly, his shoots run so smoothly.. there’s such a relaxed atmosphere that you feel comfortable immediately. I did my very first erotic shoot the first time I met Pablo and I remember how serene I felt. Secondly, Pablo is extremely respectful, which is very important especially during an erotic, bondage or g/g shoot, and he always ensure that his model(s) is/are happy with everything during the shoot. And thirdly, his work is just bloody brilliant!! Pablo has such a distinctive style and he knows what he’s doing. I could stop there but I have to add what a lovely person he is. Great to chat to, fun, well mannered, respectful and a true gentleman. Oh… and he makes the best coffee!! 👍! I’m really looking forward to our next shoot in a couple weeks time… and to one of his tasty coffee!! Book a shoot with Pablo Ray now, you really won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended! Marla x

  29. I shot with Paul at his home, where he hosted me for a couple of days.

    His house is a great place for shooting, very tasteful, with a lot of character and tons of beautiful natural light.

    He’s very relaxed and knows how to give directions to get the perfect photo, he has a great eye for detail, he’s respectful and made me feel at ease while shooting.

    He also gave the finished images just 2 days after shooting! I can’t wait to see the analog photos.

    I totally recommend him.

  30. Paul is perfect for tasteful photography with a professional service. I have enjoyed working with him 3 times now and every time I get fantastic results delivered quickly.

    This photo shoot was nude girl/girl with bondage. He shot it very tastefully, creating the perfect mix of erotic, fetish and art. He was respectful at all times, I felt relaxed and safe even when I was tied up. I had an amazing time on the day with plenty of giggles and fun.

    I would highly recommend working with him.

  31. I finally got to work with Paul on a shoot with ToxiCherry. He was very professional and what I personally feel is a rare “breed” of photographer, an artist with an incredible eye and such a relaxed manner!

    He truly knows what works and it was one of those rare shoots in my life where I actually didn’t have to think much at all… Usually I am the one to come up with all the poses, decide what works best, think up ideas and so forth… But with Paul it just proves how true simplicity works so well and of course with beautiful natural light.

    His work is done so tastefully, and in a way that I personally feel engages the viewer and makes his images tell a story.

    Recommended and would certainly work with again!

  33. A true gentleman and a remarkable photographer.

    we started shooting around midday at Paul’s home , which I a may add is exceptionally elegant. I spent a fair bit of time being a chatter box and conversation flowed really naturally. I felt incredibly at ease and comfortable. when we started the shoot Paul gave really good direction and really considered each shot. he showed me many shots as we went and I was stunned at how atmospheric they were.

    to sum up Paul is a brilliant photographer and I felt he captured some hidden parts of my soul in his photos. defiantly recommend working with him to other models and I hope I am able to shoot with him again soon!

  35. It was my first shoot with Paul which I really enjoyed. He met me from the station and we walked back to his house which I completely fell in love with. He’s very friendly and kind.

    He managed to capture something that no other photographer has managed to capture in me.

    I think his photography is truly inspiring. He works with both digital and film which i find really interesting and exciting at the same time. After our shoot he sent me digital copies of the images really fast.

    I also stayed at Paul’s home while I was in London. He was extremely accommodating and even made me coffee in the morning 😊 we also went out for dinner on the Sunday which was really lovely as we got to know each other before shooting.

    Thanks again for having me Paul I hope to come and stay again with you soon!

    The images look amazing!!

  36. I shot with Pablo twice earlier this year and both shoots went great. We talked everything through before starting and he made sure that I was happy with everything and that I knew I could simply let him know if I felt uncomfortable at any point – which wasn’t relevant during the shoot at all but always nice to be reassured about. He gave great, clear direction and the atmosphere of both shoots was very calm and relaxed. Pablo also turned around the digital images overnight, which was fast work, and I’m very happy with them. I have no hesitation recommending Pablo to other models, he is a great guy and very talented 🙂

  40. I had my first shoot with Paul last weekend, and it went perfectly smoothly, neither of us was on a tight schedule so we took things at a relaxed pace (kicking off with really great coffee!). We talked everything through before starting and Paul made sure that I was happy with everything and that I knew I could simply let him know if I felt uncomfortable at any point – which wasn’t relevant during the shoot at all but always nice to be reassured about. He had very clear ideas of what he was looking for so all I had to do was get into the right frame of mind, follow instruction and relax my face (which was weirdly tricky). Paul also turned around the digital images overnight, which was fast work, and I’m very happy with them. We have already booked in our next shoot together (and I’ll wear the summer dress this time I promise!). I have no hesitation recommending Paul to other models, he is a professional in name and conduct and is great to work with.
