by Mike Herring

Mike is a leading Naturist Photographer and Video Producer. For this work he travels some 3,000 miles across France each year to photograph and film the naturist lifestyle and locations. Mike has a studio base in Staines - south west London. He refers to the outdoors as being his larger studio.

Within the studio he creates portraits, model portfolios, and also sets up for tabletop photography. This represents approximately 25% of his work. The larger studio (outdoors) Weddings, PR and Social photography plus corporate commissions make up approximately 40% of the work involvement. Mike has a studio base in Staines, and refers to the outdoors as his larger studio. He is best known for his naturist photography and documentary videos on the lifestyle and locations of naturism.


With over 17 million naturists in Europe, Mike decided that there was a market to explore.

Now some 18 years on, Mike has set up a film service to naturists, - as naturists do take holiday snaps - so his laboratory in Surrey develops and prints their photos for them and Mike provides helpful tips when the prints are returned.

Mike is commissioned by the naturist holiday campsites of France to provide photography for their brochures, so the summers are looked forward to by Mike.
