Online master-classes for small groups, and one-to-one personal tuition will be available, to move your photography up to the next level.

What People 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
