Photoshop CC – Healing Brush issues since v22.1 upgrade

I’ve had issues since Photoshop upgraded to v22.1 with using healing brush where after a few minutes, I start getting an error saying:-

“Photoshop could not Complete your Request because of a Program Error”

I tried Googling for the issue and got loads of stock answers on ‘resetting preferences to default’ (that is a big PITA just to see if it finds an issue – mallet to crack a nut) or disabling graphics card in performance (I have an old card, so tried this). I did both with no success. But I then found an actually useful post here:-

I have now disabled auto updates in Creative Cloud desktop app and manually reverted to v22.1

I lost all my setting in PS doing this which is really annoying, but healing brush now seems to be working again at least. I’ll wait until they fix the bug and then update manually from now on.

Just thought I’d post this in case it helps anyone else at all.

I had a really cool,chilled shoot with Rugglez over the Bank Holiday weekend.Hes a lovely guy,very passionate about his art and easy to work with.I enjoyed our collaboration very much and hope we can do it all again in the very near future :

GeorgiaP said…

Have sucessfully added myself to ‘The RIbblez” Brixton Years.”

What a great relaxed shoot. RIbblez is dead easy to work with.We had a right laugh and with such a chilled out atmosphere we worked some great shots. Was so relaxed at one point I forgot the camera was even there. Great use of natural light,angles and individual style. This man is an artist you should get to work with if you can …….

Had a shoot on Sunday 28th. My hubby and I travelled to Brixton for a shoot where we met Rugglez outside Brixton station. We chatted briefly and hubby went off taking in a bit of sightseeing for 4 hours. After a short walk we got to his awesome spacious apartment where he made a lovely cuppa before deciding what we would start with. All I can say this guy is amazing with his camera he knows what he wants and how he wants it. In between him taking pics we did have a laugh lovely funny professional guy and very patient as the sun was playing silly buggers as he was about to take a pic haha. I cant wait to see the images now but ill be patient Mr Rugglez as I`m sure they will be amazing πŸ™‚

I highly recommend to all models because you wont be disappointed

Have shot with Rugglez twice now and I love the results!

He has a natural eye for unusual angles, and uses the light and space perfectly to create some phenomenal shots. He has an amazing flat to shoot in, and has his own awesome unique style!

Cannot recommend him enough, and I look forward to shooting with him again!

Annie Moya said…

Awesome photographer and a lovely chap!

We’ve worked together twice now and I’ve enjoyed both shoots. I like that the shots we’ve produced have come out unique and different to anything else I have on my portfolio.

I’m looking forward to seeing the results from our second shoot. I will most definitely like to work with him again, in fact we already have our third shoot booked in already. πŸ™‚

Comes highly recommended to all models!

Got to shoot with rugglez last week at his flat in Brixton. Really liked that flat as its spacious with a lot natural light coming in. We were super lucky with a weather as well as it was a bright sunny day and what I liked even more is the photographer himself. Rugglez is a professional and as modelling is only my hobby it was nice of him to help and direct me. Would definitely work with him again πŸ™‚ X

Jezebelle said…

I got to shoot with this epic individual for another time, after so many amazing shoots – and what a flippin’ awesome shoot it was!

Rugglez is the master of filth, fun and fetish – which we’ve done plenty of in the past – but he is also a top photographer for playing with light too, capturing it in the most beautiful way πŸ™‚

The set up he has now is absolutely amazing and he really does make wonderful use of the features & space, with his deft and effortless techniques & way with the camera….

I can’t recommend this super mindblowing photographer enough to all of you guys, including the touring models, this dude is one of the most genuine & caring human beings you’ll ever meet – as well as being the one of the best at what he does. Period. If you get the chance to work with him, be ready to be mesmirised peeps πŸ™‚

Got to shoot with the talented Rugglez again this weekend and would yet again recommend πŸ™‚

A relatively short yet sweet shoot, producing some gorgeous images that I cannot wait to share!

Lookingforward to next time again already!

Silky said…

What can I say about our shoots but ….we work so well together and chat a lot .

I always have great fun working with Rugglez, the time we tackled the varying light and mirrors in my bedroom and I think we nailed it .

Thank you so much for another wonderful shoot and I can’t wait to come down to you in London and see what amazing images we can produce in your gaff πŸ™‚

Isobela Lugosi said…

I have wanted to work with Rugglez for ages so when i saw that he moved to london i was very pleased!!

I arrived at his apartment in London and he was very welcoming, had loads of ideas ready but also very chilled.

Probably one of the most easy going people i’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

We had a laugh but also a very professional shoot.

Rugglez is so easy to be around and also a lot of fun, we made some absolutely awesome photos and he got them back to me very quickly!

Just look at the photos, he is a legend.

Would recommend over and over again and cannot wait to arrange the next shoot!

ViciousPoison said…

Easy going, professional, open for ideas, respectful and fun to work with! Uff… I shall return to Brixton and shoot some more. Recommended!

LauraJDraycon said…

You know when you have been secretly wanting to work with someone, then when it finally happens its awesome…well that πŸ˜‰

I jumped on a train and was met by the lovely Rugglez who plied me with tea and chocolate cake (mmmmmmm cake) then I pranced around his gorgeous new place in lingerie and some awesomely tied shibari by ArtofSexpression. I was disappointed he didn’t shoot me while wearing my harness, thought he would have looked gorgeous in it! I had a fabulous day with this creative man and would certainly hope to get in front of his lens again sometime. Highly recommended.

Violette said…

I really enjoyed my recent shoot with Rugglez. I felt comfortable and relaxed from the start. His direction was very welcome….an arm slightly more angled…head turned a little more…eyes looking into the distance…. With his clear vision and focus I know that we have created some great shots. Can’t wait to see them.

Nutmeg said…

I shot with Rugglez in London.

I have to say it was a really relaxed and easy going shoot!

He has a good sense of humor and gives good directions when needed, he also offer to host me one night, which was a good advantage to avoid rushing the photoshoot.

I really like his work and I can’t wait to see the results of our shoot, hopefully we’ll shoot together again in the near future!

AnnaRose said…

Had an awesome shoot with Rugglez recently in Shoreditch. Pre communication was excellent, he was friendly, had a good sense of humour and easy going.

On this shoot we decided to shoot on Location and explore Shoreditch. Whilst shooting Rugglez allowed me to pose freely but gave good directions when needed.

From what I have seen the images are brilliant. Thank you for a wonderful experience and I hope it was not the last.


Jynx said…

Great shoot with Rugglez on the final day of my Surrey/Hants Tour.

His place is amazing to shoot from, with beautiful natural light, awesome props (and even bought me milk especially for tea)!

Clear pre-shoot comms, after chatting we tried a variety of sets and had great fun!

Cannot wait to recieve edits- thanks hugely Rugglez! Until next time πŸ˜‰

Sarah-Jane Harper (SJ). said…

I had the privilege of working with Ruggelz on Saturday, and what a great shoot we had ?.

Ruggelz meet me at the train station , which I thought was really sweet.

We shot at his apartment in London ( which has amazing space and a great feel)..

Time just flew and we got some really great shots.

Ruggelz direction is to perfection and we worked fantastic together.

Great communication before shoot with all information I needed.

100% recommend and definitely take the opportunity to work with him as you won’t be disappointed.

Alibrooks said…

Well I’ve worked with the lovely Rugglez before and as always our shoots are great fun, laid back and relaxed.. He’s such a lovely and caring person. We always come away with some amazing images and can’t wait till the next time. xx

If you get a chance to work with him I 100% recommend you do.. Than k you for a great time and look forward to our next encounter πŸ˜€ xx

Onym said…

Having wanted to work with Rugglez for quite some time but not plucking up the courage to do so, I was lucky enough to work with him before he city and I moved country.

Communication was excellent before and during the shoot, he gives precise direction and keeps you moving to get the right image.

We had planned an on location shoot. However, the cold weather was not in our favour for rolling around on the floor so had to adapt our plans. Rugglez works well to a plan or improvisation.

I had an excellent time working with Rugglez and loved our final images. I would not hesitate to recommend him and look forward to working with him again if our paths cross.

the body artist said…

I had the pleasure of working with this fine photographer in his new abode down in Brixton, London.

Comfortable from the moment he walked up to the gate, I knew we’d have an enjoyable shoot.

That we sure did, mostly down to his good humor.

He’s very good at giving you that final direct that just adds the extra ‘umph’ to a great shot, as well as utilising the space and props we had.

Loved that he’s also down for experimental randomness which I personally always cherish.

I’ll be looking at working with this fine gent sometime in the near future and so should you…

Thank you mister Rugglez, I’m looking forward to seeing those edits, as what I saw on the back of your camera briefly made me smile a lot.

Annie Moya said…

I had an awesome shoot with Rugglez last week.

Due to this shoot being arranged at short notice we didn’t have time to plan so, we just went with the flow. I turned up with a suitcase full of stuff and like a typical photographer, he only wanted to use two items from my case :p , well, to be fair we didn’t need to use a lot for the shoot. We spent half the shoot chatting and the other half shooting, so, it was a very nice relaxed atmosphere. It didn’t feel like hardwork working with him, although, he did have me doing press-ups and all sorts. πŸ™‚

It was all good fun, I would definitely work with him again.

Comes highly recommended to all!

Sara1985 said…

Oh ruggles I’m so sorry I didn’t come, I’ve been overwhelmed by work and messages it was immence, you are such an amazing person to work with and your pics are amazing let me know when your free πŸ™ (me grovelling) x

Lilu said…

Shot with Rugglez last week at his new flat in Brixton.

I found him really easy to work with, relaxed and chatty and we got through lots of different sets in the time we had.

He gave great direction, and I was able to push myself in terms of what I could achieve. He worked well with the natural light, and I know we managed to get some great shots!

We’re certainly planning on working together again at some point, and I’d definitely recommend him!

LottiiRose said…

How have I not left you a reference? SORRRYYYYYY!!

I shot with Rugglez a few weeks back and had such an awesome time! We shot for Zivity doing loads of different sets, He came to shoot me at my little cabin which he worked eprfectly in. He was polite, helpful, full of ideas and such a nice person! I had a blast shooting with him and cant believe how gorgeous the images ive seen are!

Ive even had him come back since to do another shoot and again was awesome fun to work with!!

Next time Ill go to his new fancy pansy place πŸ˜‰

Thanks Rugglez!

Highly Recommended!!

LottiiRose xx

Gracieuxlove said…

I got to shoot with Rugglez a few weeks ago for Zivity. We decided to shoot at my home which isn’t great but we managed to make it work.

Rugglez made me feel relaxed and gave some great direction on the day. Thanks again and hope to work with you again soon!


cyan said…

I finally got to shoot with Rugglez on the last day of my Gloucester trip. We’d been talking about the shoot for some time so we were both clear on what we wanted to achieve. Rugglez was very respectful of my boundaries and I felt very comfortable throughout the shoot. He gave lots of direction and even with the constant changing light I’m sure we managed to get some great shots.

Rugglez was very open with me, and I felt I could trust him too – I really felt that we were on the same level. He is clearly passionate about what he does, there’s definitely that twinkle in his eye!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and can’t wait to see the photos πŸ™‚

Thank you for such a great day, can’t wait for the next one!

I finally got to shoot with Rugglez a few weeks ago. We shot on location first in freezing temperatures,but he was very considerate,kept my hands warm and my spirits high. He is great at direction and had some amazing ideas.

After a few hours the cold got the better of me,so we shot at his place,which was warm,inviting and he put me at ease straight away and whacked the heating up even more…..!!!

Once I’d thawed out,we worked really well together,he was very conscious of how I was feeling and was so down to earth,we had a great laugh and got some fabulous images.

We have planned to work together again soon,which I’m really looking forward to.

I’d absolutely recommend working with him,he’s a fantastic photographer and a really lovely guy.

LottiiRose said…

FINALLY got to shoot with Rugglez yesterday. It has been years in the making (or what feels like it anyway!) He came to my little cabin and we had such a laugh, he had loads of ideas, was amazeballs at direction and I couldnt have had a nicer day!

Hes such a gem, really laid back, consious of the models comfort and a good laugh!

Would love to shoot with him again!

Highly recomended!

EnnaVictoria said…

Had my 2nd shoot with Rugglez a few days ago and enjoyed it just as much as the first!

He’s very laid back/easy to get along with and the images looked awesome! Can’t wait to see them finished πŸ™‚

Definitely recommend him to any model and hope to work with him again soon πŸ™‚

VickiVonHelsing said…

We had our first shoot today and it was the first time I had done any rope work, Rugglez was an absolute gentleman, he was very professional he knew what he wanted from the shoot and gave great direction.

Pre-shoot we had great communication, he gave me great idea’s for outfits and style and made me feel really comfortable with him even before we met.

I look forward to seeing the final edits and I would 100% Recommend Rugglez to any model’s experienced or not, he’s great! I look forward to working with him again.

Marla Pandora said…

I had my second shoot with Rugglez last month and as the first one, it was a relaxed, fun and enjoyable shoot. Having done mostly erotic and bondage the last time, we wanted to try something different this time so we did some casual/fashion… and we finished with a little bondage and fetish in the evening πŸ™‚ I just love working with Rugglez for many reasons.. he’s a great guy and we get on well, he’s full of great ideas, I know the shoot will run smoothly, I can trust him, and I just know the images will look fantastic! Shooting with him also guarantees lots of fun, we’ve even found Wally while shooting in Gloucester Docks!! I’m looking forward to our 3rd shoot which is in a couple weeks already! Thanks again for having me πŸ™‚

Ps: I’ve given up cheese balls πŸ™ You’ll have to find something else to keep me coming back… maybe olives? πŸ™‚ M x

purpleprincess said…

I had a great shoot with Rugglez last week. He kindly came to meet me at the train station and was full of ideas when our location shoot idea was tarnished by horribly cold and wet weather.

He is a cool, friendly and professional guy to work with and I enjoyed the range of ideas we tried.

I’m looking forward to another shoot later in the year when it warms up. Highly Recommended.

kes wild said…

Rugglezzzzzz my all round favorite person around these here parts, what a absolute doll! Not many people I feel I can chat to about anything but rugglez tops the list. All round amazing person, he can put up with me and my hyperactivity for longer than an hour! No really Rugglez is the nicest bloke and someone I feel very comfortable shooting with. I have tried some new and marvelous things all down to this man and I am so excited to see what he comes up with in the images. A amazing photographer, funny one of a kind, no way can you pigeon hole this one, he’s definitely unique in the nicest possible way. He is a artist in every sense of the word. Much luv to you Ruggz until the next time πŸ™‚

Emily Ischia said…

This was my first shoot with Rugglez his pre shoot communication was excellent as was during shoot communication. He is relaxed, has a great sense of humor, many concept ideas and is very professional. From looking at some of the images on the camera I think we achieved some excellent work, many thanks Rugglez, very highly recommended!

Erinx said…

Had a second great shoot with this awesome dude !

Although we had only shot together once before it felt like we had shot lots more .

Rugglez is so easy to get along with , a really kool chap .

Professional , funny and dam right crazy good at what he does .

If you ever get the opportunity to work with him , do not hesitate .

Can’t recommend him enough . πŸ™‚

Can’ not wait to see the final cuts , the back of the camera already looked good to go .

Rugglez you Rock ! ??:)

Until next time . . . .

Silky said…

I’m losing count of the amount of times Rugglez and I have shot together, but once again we had a whale of a time . We put the world to right over coffee and biscuits and then ventured to the area in my new home which as aptly named Lofty Heights . Armed with only camera, a slightly suspect table lamp and some rope we set about producing some fantastic images, had some giggles and I got dirty rolling around the floor ;).

Thank you once again for a great shoot and yes there will be more in the not too distant future.

Jezebelle said…

I finally got to shoot with the fabulousness that is Rugglez last week – for a whole 3 days!

He is a super host, who knows how to look after models, making sure that I had everything I needed and his priority is the model’s health & safety…..the locations that he scouted for us were just amazing and his ideas were so fun to put in practice!

Rugglez is a wonderful photographer who directs beautifully and sets the scene perfectly – I can safely say that he is one of the best erotic & bondage photographers I’ve worked with, he’s fantastic with ropework, the angles he shoots from are flattering and evocative, as well having an eye for capturing the most loveliest of natural/ambient light!

I can safely say that I cannot recommend this epic photographer enough, he is not just a wonderful individual, but a fantabulous artist as well – he will blow you away πŸ™‚

Thank you for the amazing 3 days!!

Marla Pandora said…

I finally got to shoot with Rugglez and it was well worth the wait!! We’ve been wanting to work together for a while now so I was very excited when we both found a suitable date. Rugglez picked me up midday and we drove to an awesome location for some bondage and erotic. I didn’t need much time (if any) to feel comfortable around him, we just seemed to connect right away and it felt like I had been shooting with him many times before. He was making sure I was happy at all times which made me feel extremely at ease. We then carried on shooting at his place in the evening, where he kindly let me stay for the night.

Rugglez is a total joy to work with.. he knows exactly what he wants to achieve and you just know the pictures will look awesome. Not only he’s a talented and creative photographer, but he’s also so easy to get on with, a great laugh, very respectful and so much fun to be around! We already have our next shoot booked next month and I can’t wait to work with him again! And yes, of course he is highly recommended by me! πŸ™‚

Feather said…

Second shoot with this awesome guy ! … As usual, loads of laughs, a photographer I can just relax with and be myself, which makes for a great shoot that is fun, laughs, great banter, exciting, relaxed and a true collaboration of ideas. We’d been trying to organise a second shoot for ages, and I’m so glad we took things in hand and put things on hold to shoot together again. Just as much fun if not BETTER than the first time … can not praise this guy high enough, because he’s the kind of Photographer that you just want to keep on shooting with until the small hours, and that’s what we’d have done if I hadn’t had to drive back home. One of the most noticeable things about shooting with this man, is that he FEELS how an image should be, not just how he thinks it should look, he has passion for his artistry and talents and instinctively feels when something is working, or not, so that makes you TRUST his eye and skill. Third shoot already on the agenda as we couldn’t finish all we planned. AWESOME man ! HIGHLY recommend him. πŸ˜‰

Jem Kai Olsen said…

I worked with Rugglez on Sept 15, He came all the way to Norwich to shoot Lavinia and I also had the opportunity to work with him. He is a very easy going, chatty, and down to earth guy which made the shoot straight away fun and exciting. He loves to use natural light and he is great at directing the shoot. I strongly recommend him. He has a great portfolio and experience. Rugglez can shoot all day without eating as he just gets into the mood of creativity.:)

I would like to work with you again very soon Rugglez. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Angelina said…

This was the first time I had the pleasure of working with rugglez and it was well worth the wait, he’s been someone I’ve been wanting to shoot with for such a long time! Even though we didn’t have long and unfortuantly was towards the end of the day so lighting wasn’t on our side we still had lots of fun and hopefully created some fab images πŸ™‚ he’s a great guy and knows what he wants when it comes to the models look and what look he wants to achieve!

Very easy going and made me feel so relaxed we could have talked for hours πŸ™‚

Thank you again

Naiya said…

I had a great shoot with Rugglez a little while ago and I’m really happy with the results. Rugglez is great company and his communication was perfect throughout. The shoot was fun and relaxed and Rugglez was really good at the styling and direction – highly recommended!

Lexi Thorn said…

I had an excellent shoot with Rugglez today, the whole day was very relaxed. He gave simple points for starting to pose from but also allowed for free posing and provided communication throughout the shoot to get the best possible pictures. Rugglez is very easy to work with and the shoot was great fun, I highly recommend and can not wait to work with him again.

Lavinia said…

I had a two day shot with this amazing guy and oh my goodness, he was worth the wait!!!! I had a fantastic time. Rugglez is laid back, friendly, chatty, professional, respectful , incredibly creative and has the most wicked sense of humour πŸ™‚ !!!! The first day we shot at my house and had such a laugh! The outfits were different and exciting so not only is he an amazing photographer but also a superb stylist! The second day we shot on location and even though it was wet and cold, we had a fantastic time and achieved some cool images πŸ™‚ . Apart from the shoot, we got on like a house on fire. Rugglez is so easy to talk to and to work with. His kind and funny – funky nature makes him brilliant company. He is passionate, values the models’ ideas, knows exactly how to capture a beautiful image and …well…what can I say….all the compliments you can think of !!!

I would highly recommend Rugglez and cannot wait to work with him again.

Thank you so much πŸ™‚

EnnaVictoria said…

What can I say? I had an AMAZING shoot with Rugglez over the weekend! He has a great eye for detail and was awesome at giving direction. It took me awhile to work out all of his hand gestures but I got there eventually :p

He had lots of different idea’s and was happy to try mine too…even if he did think they were weird πŸ˜‰

He’s very professional, laid back and I thoroughly enjoyed our shoot πŸ˜€

The images looked amazing from what I saw on the camera and I can’t wait to see them finished!

100% recommended by me πŸ™‚

freespirit said…

This is a belated reference (I’m terribly behind, coming back from several tours)- but I had the very good luck to work with Rugglez briefly (although too briefly) in a Scottish castle group shoot last month. He is super cool, and passionate about photography- about getting the image just right- which is also of utmost importance to me. Pre-shoot communications were very good, as he provided a list of outfit and jewellery preferences- which I adhered to, but unfortunately we ran out of time before we got the chance to shoot what we’d planned. However, we did get to work together on imagery with my makeup and styling provided by the awesome Lady C. The photo results he showed me on the back of his camera looked beautiful.

Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to work together again. πŸ™‚

Polina Black said…

Had an awesome shoot with rugglez for the second time in some shady streets in Gloucester. Of course he was an absolute charm and was fun as always. He has lovely hair as well.

This reference is #102

Ponyo said…

I worked with Rugglez for the third time a few weeks ago on a trip to Scotland and he is just so awesome!

He is easy to work with and has a fantastic eye for detail and composition. Rugglez is great with directions and pushes to get the absolute best out of his models.

As well as being funny, he is down to earth, relaxed and passionate about the work he creates. I can’t recommend him highly enough and I cant wait for round four tomorrow!

Angel price said…

I was lucky enough to meet Matt on the way to Scotland where we had organised group shooting. Half way through I didn’t even know that legendary photographer is sitting right next to me in the car :)) oh well, then we start chatting, jock about silly things, share ideas and preferences in photography world, now I know what ” Really Cool” means !! :)) during the whole week in Scotland I really enjoyed Matt’s company, such a great guy with unique sense of humour! And I’m absolutely sure he took amazing pictures of me during this time in Scotland, I can’t wait to see finished result !:) I would not recommend him to anyone else, because I’m selfish person and I want to keep him only for myself!:)) xxx

Angel price said…

Well what can I say?

Finally got to meet and work with the amazing Mr rugglez !!

He drove all the way up north to meet me at some abandoned buildings ……

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t playing nice to me today, so we only got 3hrs worth of shooting in as I was bloody freezing and couldn’t stop shaking and that’s not a good look in photos , as Mr rugglez kept pointing out to me try not to look so cold …..its all right for him all smug in his hoodie …. well maybe I’ve realised I’m just a bit of a wimp !!!

Anyway , fab guy , respectful, knows his stuff , fun and chatty . Loved working with him and hopefully will get to work with him again in a more warmer environment !!

Highly recommended and thank you for travelling all the way to see me today x

I had the pleasure of shooting with this lovely chap a few weeks back… It felt like we were trying to organise the shoot for months and when we got there in the end it did not disappoint!

Not only did I have an opportunity to work with a great photographer, but also met a lovely chap…

Right from the start, Rugglez was chivalrous and lovely. When we headed off to shoot at a location known to him, he had immense patience whilst I sat there freezing between sets (literally)… He captured the desired shots quickly and effortlessly and I would not hesitate to recommend him…

Thank you for a lovely day πŸ™‚

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.

Thanks again

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! πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜€ ,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 πŸ˜€ , 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 πŸ˜€ , thank you so much for a fantastic experience rugglez and hope I didn’t annoy to much :p

I would recommend RUGGLEZ 114% πŸ˜€ he’s a legend,all the best hunnie, look forward to seeing our images πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

Ponyo said…

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

Maria Camila said…

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!! πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

I highly recommend Rugglez and hope I get the chance to shoot with him again in the future xx

Silky said…

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 πŸ™‚

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 .

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.

Rayne Beaux said…

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! πŸ™‚ ) 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…! πŸ˜‰

chatterley said…

Love love love working with Rugglez – he’s just brilliant πŸ™‚ 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

Lola Day said…

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!

Darren S said…

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.

Cheshire said…

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!

Recommended 100%

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 !!

Alisa Rae said…

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 πŸ™‚
