A really lovely person to work with in every respect.
The shoot was arranged at short notice so we didn't have much time to plan but, we were able to come up with an arrangement and idea which suited us both. The photos look nice on the back of the camera.
I would definitely work with him again should the opportunity arise.
Comes highly recommended!
First shoot with San today and I am glad I had the opportunity to meet him while he was in London.
His pre comms were great, as was the shoot!
San is a clearly talented photographer with loads of creative ideas and knows exactly what he wants to achieve. We managed to create amazing tasteful pictures, already great even before being edited... can't wait to see the final result!
I am more than happy to recommend San!

I met up with San today for the first time for a bite to eat and a chinwag. I enjoyed every moment!
His love for photography is infectious and we bounced off each other's energy. He is knowledgeable, passionate and talented as well as a great host and lovely company. We learnt from each other, shared stories and he bought me a subway!
I now consider San a friend and recommend his company to people who will share his enthusiasm for making great art as you will be a work match made in heaven.
Seriously lost count how many times I've shoot with San now. The true professional and knows his stuff. Love working with him and been in his company. Friendly and passionate about photography. We always have an amazing shoot and we create some great images. Watch this space! Both of us been very creative and arty people we always have tons of ideas and San never turns them down we just see what works and do it! If you haven't shot with him your missing out Hurry up and come back from your jollies!
Always recommended from me

San Osho (CocTales) a kind, polite gentleman who's skill in Photography & lighting is amazing.
My first introduction to San's talents was attending one of his workshops in the Pit Studio, Nottingham.
On booking my place, he gave all attendees homework leading up to the shoot! This was to gain ideas to stage 4 of the '7 Sins', along with props we needed to bring on the day. He even gave us examples to try and recognise our style of photography in which we use to best understand our vision for the shoot.
Joined by 3 gorgeous female models, hair, make up artists and dress designers, we got to work ..
With San's expertise throughout the day I'd learn so much and very pleased to say my images had the 'Wow" factor and felt my photography had taken a major step in the right direction using his techniques.
I've had the pleasure in meeting San on several occasions, during his workshops, attending private shoots and on one occasion, booking him for a days tuition along with a model. Again, outstanding!!
In a nutshell ... A very talented man who I would highly recommend to anyone ..
Thanks San for your friendship and knowledge .. your a legend .

What a wonderful man with a fantastic skill! I modelled for San a few days ago. I felt completely at ease from start to finish and enjoyed the whole shoot! He is such a friendly person who has a real eye for creating beautiful images. Such a pleasure to work with and would love to collaborate with San again in the future! 100% recommended!!!.
Where do I start,. I got a last minute booking from San, I'm so glad I did, it was an honour and a privilege to meet him. He had a lovely respectful relationship with he's beautiful model, she was defo at ease and very relaxed around him, it was great to see. He is a genius of a photographer! He's work is outstanding. He is not just amazing at what he does, he is a really, really genuine lovely guy, I would wholeheartedly recommend San to any models out there, it really will benefit your portfolio 😉
I hope I see a lot more of him at Scarlet House
Upon learning that San was going to be a photographer at a group shoot I attended last Saturday, I got in contact with him so we could discuss ideas for what we would shoot on the day. Unfortunately the group shoot was so busy that we only got a quick 10-20 mins at the end along with 2 other models only leaving enough time for a few quick single shots. I knew that I must not leave the shoot without some shots from this absolutely incredible photographer! Whilst at the shoot the other togs kept asking "have you shot with San yet?
You have to!" and discussing how great his work was! I don't think there was one single person at the shoot who wasn't in absolute awe at his breathtaking work!
He is incredibly talented and I would highly recommend him to other models and togs. You simply must jump at the chance to work with him, he would be a credit to your portfolio 😃
I met San at a busy manor
House shoot yesterday, what an amazing talent for photography this lovely guy has, his vision for storytelling is breathtaking and it can be seen in the photos.
The way he manipulates light to create texture and mood on his pictures is amazing I cannot stop looking through his portfolio. I hope to work with him again in the future. X

Working with San is such a pleasure. I was glad to shoot with him again recently on an interesting project. I love his way of working - the conjuring of a narrative before the shoot with the help of myth, belief and characters - and his photography is clearly excellent. He is also very encouraging, appreciative and kind, very friendly and just a lovely person. Many thanks!

Had the pleasure to work with San few months ago. His work is out of this world, every time he produce something new takes my breath away
I would love to work with him again n again, I would definitely recommend San and cant wait to do more shoots with him in the future.
SUPER DOOPER RECOMMENDABLE
Had another wonderful shoot with San a few weeks ago! As always he is incredibly well organised keeping me well informed of plans for the shoots and the concepts he wanted to work on! It allowed me to go into the shoot very focused but also meant the whole team involved knew exactly what they were doing!
San is great with lighting and once again devised a series of sets that utilized flash lighting incredibly well and gave some very charming and beautiful images. San is very fun, friendly and polite during a shoot, making sure the model is comfortable and happy with all everything. He is really easy to work with and makes you feel totally at ease but also like you're having great fun while shooting!
I am incredibly happy with the results and had a really lovely time once again working with San, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him!
Was working with Sun for first time this weekend. It was absolutely amazing. It's brilliant how he sees picture before people is even in it. Enjoyed every second of this work shop, it was magic. I would like to work with him again, as he was fantastic. He make me feel relaxed, confident and professional. He made a brilliant experience for me.

I had admired the work of San for a long time and finally had the good fortune to meet the man himself on one of his workshops.
San is without doubt a true creative genius with a kind and sharing nature to him. The idea of keeping his secrets to himself just does not exist.
Prior to the workshop, San was in touch with all of us preparing us for the day. This was not just the odd message to discuss the logistics of the day but rather to find out where our creativity was heading so that he could guide us to become the photographer we want to be.
I cannot praise San highly enough. A master photographer, a creative mentor and a man I am proud to call friend.
No matter what your level of photography I suggest you attend one of San's workshops you will not regret it.
Have worked with San on a few occasions, all of which have been a joy to participate in from the beginnings of a design to the shoots.
Enjoy the whole process of setting a story and bringing it into fruition, which is all part of the San experience.
Highly recommended, am looking forward to future collaborations with this lovely man
Shooting with San is always a joy. Another workshop I organised with San was a great success. Working alongside MUAs, designer, models and photographers San feels like fish in the water. You can tell that photography is his true passion. Without making this gentleman blush.....I just love working with him and already planning more shoots, projects an workshops together. Book him now and you will not be disappointed !!!

Thank you to the organisers, models and muaâ€™s/costume designers for making this day happen. Hope we all meet again soon. Jann. XXX
I had the enormous good fortune of attending San's workshop this weekend. Brilliantly organised day, with a clear agenda, time to come together as a group before and after shooting and plenty of one to one tuition time while shooting too. I've come away from the day with great images,having learnt a lot and developed my skills, which is everything I could ask for! On top of that, San himself is just lovely to be with, creative, intelligent, funny and professional. Totally recommended for models and photographers alike

Had the pleasure of hosting a special shoot here for the very talented San. He created some gorgeous images in a break from his usual style. So easy to connect with he made a work day seem like a great day off . Professional, patient and great fun I look forward to welcoming him here again soon.
Recently organised lighting and scene set up workshop with San. I don't think there is other person I could do it with. Great organiser, fabulous teacher and a great person. One of the good people that you don't meet very often! Working through the workshop with the models and photographers, San was like a fish in the sea. You can tell that photography and storytelling is his absolute passion. Although being on the workshop as an organiser and not participant I still learned lots more (again), because his knowledge and skills seem to be endless. Highly recommend for shoots and workshops and really looking forward to our next workshop in May 😁😁😁👏👏👏
I finally got to work with this amazing photographer! He is one of the best photographers that I have worked with. San is very easy going, polite, friendly and very creative! He knows how to get a model to come out of their shell. We got some great results and looking forward to seeing the final result! His photos are filled with so much character and emotion.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE! Looking forward to working with him again.
Best story telling photographer I have worked with. Thank you San.
Worked with San with a small team of individuals for an storytellers shoot based around Dark Romance entitled "A Dangerous Masterpiece." San was on time, turned up with loads of gusto and was willing to brace the cold and windy weather for a good five hours shooting time in December. Since seeing the images i can confirm that he is by far one of the best photographers i have worked with during 2014 and we look to work with him more in 2015. Wonderful chap with a great sense of humor and knows how to get shots done quickly and well. Thank you San, see you soon
I had the pleasure of working with San recently on a shoot based on a romantic storyline and I have to say that I am so super impressed with his work. The way he works is fantastic, he is so creative and he really thinks of all the possibilities to make a shot look the best. He is so talented and adding to that, such a wonderfully friendly guy. He has such a positive energy and I love it Cannot wait to work with him again this year!

I had a really good shoot with San yesterday in his hotel room in London. I felt completely comfortable with him and really feel he was on my wavelength with styles and aspirations, which made it especially nice. He was very appreciative of my abilities and look, which was nice and encouraging, and he came with some great ideas and inspirations (discussed prior to the shoot), and made the absolute best of a modern hotel room (it was a really impressive hotel, actually) with some beautiful lighting. I really like his focus on context and narratives as that is something that, to me, pushes an image towards a different level. I would very happily work with him again and hope I will! Oh and he was easy to chat to and a wealth of knowledge about Bollywood music & film!
I am so pleased to have the oportunity to work with Sanjeev.
He is the best photographer I have ever met!!!! And I am absolutely honest on it!!!
He is so lovely, professional, considerate and easy going person. I loved the time when we working together. There is no stress or push, he is so attentive, true gentleman!
He full off new ideas and stories which I love, because it always become as a wonderful pictures. .
I love every single moment in all our shootings
we have work together about 4 times now and I will be so happy to work with him as many times as it possible.
Definitely will recommend him to all model.
P.S. San, I am so happy to met you other day....

Although was possibly the coldest I've ever been on a shoot was great san is so professional and easy to get along with friendly and is a good laugh making the shoot enjoyable and time flew by,
Time flys when your having fun

I had a wonderful shoot with San in London! We had a lot of pre-comms, you need to be committed to your craft in order to nail and enjoy a shoot with San as he knows exactly what he wants and is a genius with lighting!
I'm so impressed with what I saw in the back of the camera, and San is an absolute gentleman!
I'd highly recommend shooting with him if you haven;t already!
Thanks for a great day San! I hope to see you again soon!

What can I say...San is nothing but an exceptional photographer. He can capture models beautifully - whilst creating a story around them producing wonderfully themed photographs. I have had the fantastic opportunity to work with San on a number of occasions, and I can only say that I have always left the shoot feeling as though I have worked with a great talent. As you can see from these comments - this is echoed by others too. Whether you are a beginner, or more established, San will always encourage the best in you to produce great images.
Working with San I have to say at the start of my modelling profession, I have to say has been the biggest confidence boost in being able to create beautiful, editorial stories with a fairy tale luminance to his photographs.
Each and every time I have worked with him, and been a completely different narrative, he's easy going, painting that narrative in your mind so you can get into that character's skin and make it come through on Camera.
His pictures and the way he works, through pure passion is magic. Anyone who can't see that need to go to Specsavers, if you don't wear glasses then you need your head checking.
Recommended to any soul worthy.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting san on a group project he had arranged.
Where i was portraied as leanardo da vinci and modeling along side megan reily aka mona lisa.
Pre communication was superb and my attire was arranged in due course for this shoot.
San was very clear on the ideas he wanted to shoot.
Hes a great photographer and a great man
Was great to work with you san
Look forward to the next shoot
Guys get on his case hes brill
