I have been double vaccinated, so I can do indoor photography (subject to the government guidelines and travel restrictions of the day),
where each person involved has also had both vaccines
or everyone involved has had a negative lateral flow test within 24 hours of the shoot.
For those who have not yet had both vaccines, there are still plenty of outdoor, socially distanced options. Get in touch for a no-obligation chat to explore ideas and possibilities.

What People Say…
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
