I worked with mr Rugglez a couple of weeks ago and it was an absolute pleasure!
Felt like this shoot has been a long time coming and it came by so quickly. I travelled over to Gloucester where I was met with a great smile and we hit it off from the get go.
We went to a derelict location and took lots of sexy snaps! This was my first location shoot in a little while so many thanks for bearing with me whilst my i froze my little tushy off from time to time!
Full of ideas and craziness – I can’t wait to see the work we produced as his portfolio speaks for himself!
Would I recommend Rugglez? yes of course! book him now!
100% recommended – professional – great photographer – a joy to be around.

Had an awesome day with this guy, when we finally stopped talking and got shooting. I don’t think I have relaxed so much at a shoot which was filled with humour but so professionally done. Great direction, fun personality, tolerated my blond moments & was the reason why I love doing what I do. Hilarious highlights, my clothing choices have a challenge but wow did we pull it off. Looking forward to having him as part of my portfolio & hopefully many more shoots to come when he’s recovered from this one. Highly recommended
In simple terms I think it can be said that Rugglez and I work well and enjoy working together as this was shoot 4 and 5 (back to back over 2 days).
The first shoot was at my accommodation during my tour and although we had to keep our voices on a somewhat subdued level so not to alert my hosts to our antics I think we managed to achieve some pretty amazing images, with some Silky / Rugglez twists :).
On our second shoot we ventured out into the wilds of the area, not deterred by travellers, mud, steep banks, demolition, twisted ankle (not mine), closed roads or workmen we managed a great urbex shoot in what was left of a really great place to shoot in .
Taking advantage of lots of things around us (including a Tescos shopping trolley ) I know we will have in produced some great images even though my selection of bottom halves for outfits could have been more substantial ;).
Thank you for a great couple of days and looking forward to the next time.

I was so excited to shoot with rugglez after coming across his portfolio and loving every image! He knows what he wants to get and works fast and hard to get it. We had great fun shooting in and outside a shed (whilst avoiding chickens and a dog!). He was super helpful when directing poses and choosing outfits. Thank you so much Rugglez, I cannot wait to see the images we created. Definitely recommended! 🙂 x

Well what can i say that hasn’t already been said? Pre comms started way back in December and we kept in contact as much as possible until the day arrived, then there was 24 hours+ with this absolute diamond geezer, picked me up from the station and took me to his home, where we decided where to start our day and half shooting,headed out to the secret location that No body knows about ;), and shot till I turned a light shade of purple,rugglez was ever so nice checking I was ok to carry on 😀 ,his hand gestures directed me,it took a while of getting used to them (he has magic hands I’m sure), after our shoot returned back to his where he cooked me my dinner awwww sweet 😀 , then we shot some more at his home, again the hand gestures came into play :p, we talked some (well I did) poor man :p.
Day 2: I was woken with a voice shouting into the room Morning,never moved so fast in my life :),had breakfast and shot some more before I had to head back home, it was an absolute pleasure shooting with this man, and I would do it all over again in a heart beat 😀 , thank you so much for a fantastic experience rugglez and hope I didn’t annoy to much :p
I would recommend RUGGLEZ 114% 😀 he’s a legend,all the best hunnie, look forward to seeing our images 😀 x
Fabulous shoot with a very dynamic man, great comms before which allowed me to get well prepared, and brilliant direction on the shoot. Easily the best fun and laughs I ever had on a shoot, and he encouraged me to try things I’d NEVER considered. We hit is off instantly and I really enjoy his style of shooting as its fast and concise whilst not feeling rushed in any way. WONDERFUL at collaborating and listening to ideas, making me feel more than just a model, and more of an active participant on different perspectives. You know where you are with Rugglez, what you see is what you get, a professional, warm, friendly, funny, kind and brilliant guy who just happens to be an ACE COOL Photographer. If your given the chance to shoot with him, don’t pass up a great opportunity for some fun, learning and imaginative images. Really hope we can work together again soon. 😉

Ribs,Camera,Action…….After a much anticipated wait I finally got to shoot with the fabulous Rugglez and boy was it worth it.
Pre communication leading up to the shoot was perfect and Rugglez came across as very professional and friendly.
Rugglez drove all the way from Gloucester to the Wirral which is a hell of a trek and one I much appreciated.
He is a unique talent and has his own individual way of working which I highly admire. Working with natural light only he had my doing all sorts of wierd and wonderful things which I know are going to turn into cracking images.
Rugglez really stretches the imagination and we utilized every possible space in my home.
As well as being a fantastic photographer Rugglez is a lovely person, friendly very funny and very humble even about his own amazing work.
Rugglez gave me lots of hints tips and direction and was very accommodating answering any questions that I fired at him (I ask a lot of questions it’s just my nature).
When the shoot was over I felt like I had made a new friend. Rugglez was open and honest from the start about processing times for images and what I should expect from him, I can not wait to see the images we have created and would love to plan shoot number 2 (hint hint)
Thanks so much Rugglez for a day of fun x
Shot with Ribblez yesterday and it was a really great experience.
Very down to earth guy, made me feel comfortable, lots of advice and support and was great to talk to.
He has a very creative eye and helps get the best out of his model, time flew by and I can’t wait to shoot again soon.
Highly recommended 🙂
I asked Rugglez to shoot with me after looking at his portfolio and absolutely loved what I saw! He agreed and I’m so glad cause it was awesome!
Not being very experienced myself, I was quite nervous before hand but he instantly made me feel comfortable, he was easy to talk to and a real laugh. Fantastic at directing and so creative, it’s easy to see that he loves what he does.
Highly recommend that anyone work with him and I definitely want to work with him again! Thanks for an awesome day!
I worked with Rugglez for the first time whilst on tour. He was very easy to get along with and professional at all times. The shoot flew by (in fact we shot for longer than expected!) and he had lots of cool ideas to try out 🙂 I had such a giggle. I can’t wait to see the images! I recommend him to other models and I hope to work with him again 🙂

Just wow !!! I have shot with the one and only Rugglez yesterday and need to say that he is absolutely awesome !!! Taking into consideration that some of the stuff I have done with him it was totally a “first” for me, have to mention that he made me feel amazingly comfortable and at ease during the whole shoot..
We have booked our shoot a while ago, and his pre-communications were spot on. Clear directions, requests for the outfits, awesome, excellent communication from start to end. He even came down to London to shoot me!!
During the shoot, he is a lovely charming gentleman. Has an awesome loads of ideas and soooo good at directions !! We had a great laugh the whole shoot and I certainly enjoyed myself so much !! Had to discover another wild side of me ! ha!
As you can see from his port, he is a terrific photographer and need to say I feel honoured he has put me on his list of models to work with. Fantastic work, which I will always admire!! I can not recommend him highly enough. Thanks Matt for an awesome day!! And here’s to our next one!! 😉 Mona x
Had a home shoot with Ruggles yesterday and all I can say is wow!
He is very creative and imaginative. He gives direction really well and is very encouraging during a shoot.
He is also a really nice guy. I felt really comfortable and safe with him. We chatted and laughed constantly and the time just flew by.
Can’t wait to see the images 🙂
I highly recommend Rugglez and hope I get the chance to shoot with him again in the future xx
This was my third shoot with Rugglez, slightly different theme this time for us, trying something new for me, which I really enjoyed .
Another difference was that this time we did a home shoot and I can confirm that Rugglez is perfectly house trained and safe to have around your abode 🙂
Despite a couple of technical hitches with pieces of equipment, we had a great day, plenty of banter, laughter and also hard work .
Rugglez is really easy to get along with, I know the work we will have produced will be the dogs too dahs and I highly recommend all models to get his images on their profiles .
Thank you for a great day and I look forward to the next one .

Finally got to shoot with Matthew & it was awesome!! Had such a great time.. He is real fun to work with & he made me feel totally comfortable throughout!!
His photography skills are amazing & he had loads of cool ideas. Real down to earth person who I would recommend to anyone & everyone.
Thanks so much, can’t wait to see the shots!
Pure awesome, as a human being and as a photographer. Every portfolio should have some Rugless in it! Aside from being a source of great frustration and dominatrix behaviour for me, he’s far more talented than he will ever concede – a very professional, relaxed, humble guy who just gets better every day. Highly recommend; trustworthy and genuine.

Shooting with Rugglez in Enlgand several months back was epic and I was so thrilled that he decided to come all the way to Texas to shoot me again! We squeezed in as much shooting and traveling as possible and had so much fun in the process. Rugglez is a wonderful friend and seriously talented photographer. I would highly recommend him to every model looking for a fun and creative shoot. Thank you Rugglez and I hope we cross paths again.
Had chatted about a shoot with Ruggletto at the Gloucester social. He turned up on time (despite wrecking his mobile a few days before! 🙂 ) We shot in a carpark in Gloucester. It was really good fun. I actually learned a couple of things about photography while watching him work. He’s a dude, and he takes a great pic. We chatted for about an hour afterwards too. Make sure you escape before he starts talking…! 😉
Love love love working with Rugglez – he’s just brilliant 🙂 This time he spent a sunny few days with me in Cornwall and we did beach shoots, complete with naked ramblers and seagulls!
Had a ball – what ever he shoots, Rugglez brings his unique awesomeness to it, and he’s such a lovely bloke too. Cannot wait till our next shoot!
If you get a chance to work with the peerless Ribblez, jump at it…
Thanks lovely xx

I loved shooting with Rugglez. He’s fun, friendly and super talented.
We spent the whole day together chatting, giggling and shooting around a beautiful old farmyard. It was a total collaboration he always asked for my opinion which meant I had a great input on the shots we created together. This resulted whole host of beautiful and bizarre images. It was a fantastic day!
I highly recommended Rugglez and would love to shoot with him again!

I had an awesome shoot with Rugglez and Lea Lea on Sunday, at a great derelict location in Gloucester. I found Rugglez very professional, friendly, easy going, and a really great fella.
Great comms and very detailed directions to the location given before hand.
Rugglez brought great ideas to the shoot and captured amazing effects, from myself and Lea, using natural lighting.
I highly recommend working with Rugglez.
I finally managed to shoot with Rugglez last week and had a great time.
Pre commes was great and the location was fantastic!
We both like to take our time shooting and we went through lots of different poses. He directed me perfectly and had loads of amazing ideas and knew exactly how to use the location to our advantage.
Throughout the shoot i felt 100% relaxed and even felt comfortable enough to make the odd awful joke… (by odd i mean all the time)
The looks were sexy and powerful and sometimes even powerless. We even managed to do basic rope work which i haven’t done before but loved!
He is such a nice guy and from the camera the images look fantastic, i can’t wait to see the finished photographs.
If you haven’t worked with him, do it!

I recently worked with Rugglez and I can honestly say it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time !! Before the shoot communication was awesome, on shoot Rugglez is easy to get along with, great with diet too and has such a great eye for creating such epic photos. I’ve admired his work for a while and feel very privileged that I’ve had the chance to work with him. I’m looking forward to the next time !!

So we were drinking diet coke and munching chocolate and it was decided we should go shoot.
We ended up in the most secret of locations in Gloucestershire and it begun.
Boobs, dust, lovely light and derelict buildings.
Some beautiful images were captured.
Just a typical outing with Ribblez 🙂
