— Quite Frankly: Birthday Treats

To refer back to my post of yesterday, as the number of people of registering their interest on the Quite Frankly website was quite phenomenal, I shall again break my blog silence (when it comes to my own photography) and post these pics of my birthday present from Rebecca Milford, one of Quite Frankly’s writers.


Yep, it’s my birthday today.


If you’d like to give me a birthday treat too, all you have to do is  go register your interest in the Quite Frankly project – which you can do here – and if the results are the same, I’ll even consider posting more photographs.

It’s up to you…

— Quite Frankly: Sneak Preview

I stopped posting my own self-portrait photograph’s on The English Group’s blog quite some while ago, but as we’re trying to create awareness of the Quite Frankly erotic magazine project, I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of a few out-takes from my own shoot for an essay in the magazine.


Do know that I only do this now, or will only do this again, if you all go across to the magazine’s website holding page and register for updates regarding the launch of publication – which you can do here.

Is that a deal?

— Si Scott for Quite Frankly

The English Group: New Project


The acclaimed illustrator Si Scott has created an essay of erotic illustrations for the launch issue of Quite Frankly magazine (which The English Group will be sending to print this week).


We have just created a series of digital postcards to showcase Si Scott’s contribution across the magazine’s social media platforms, alongside the same for a number of the photographers who have also contributed to Issue One.


You can register for updates about the project here.
