About Kim Ayres Photography

We all want to look good in photos - whether that's strong, playful, friendly or authoritative - and, if we're honest about it, just a little bit cool.

Of course, not everyone feels these things when they are having their photo taken. As soon as someone points a camera at us, most of us feel intensely self-conscious and start to worry about all the parts of us we consider our failings.

But what motivates me, as a photographer, is I like to make people feel good about themselves.

This means taking the time to build trust and confidence for a photo shoot. By helping you reach a point of feeling relaxed, or even excited, when the camera goes click, we will achieve not just OK photos, but great photos - photos you will be delighted with.

And I back that up with a cast iron guarantee - if you are in any way less than thrilled with your photos, then you will not be charged a penny for my time.

The best photos come when people feel comfortable enough in the situation to play, and explore different ideas, expressions and postures. My job is to help you reach that place so together we can create images that will make you feel good about yourself.

What the clients say...

  • “Kim is simply brilliant, quietly puts his subject at ease and clearly relishes staging unusual and fantastical photography sessions; this he does with a passion. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

    Polly Pullar
    Author and Wildlife Photographer
  • “After our photoshoot I felt we all knew each other that bit better, which can only help us as a business in the long run. Once the photos were in circulation the feedback was incredible. They were a real talking point and created a real buzz about our business.”

    Angela Green
    Mrs Green's Tea Lounge
  • “Kim has an instinctive understanding of the insecurity we all have that we're going to end up looking like a fool in front of the camera, so he goes to great lengths to make sure we look cool in the final image.”

    David Mark Williams
    Performance Poet
