As a musicians photographer I specialise in capturing natural and striking images that reflect the individual personality of the artist or group. I like to work on location and use the vibrant city backgrounds or beautiful parks to provide a distinctive backdrop to each shoot.
My style is relaxed and informal and I love to create genuine and spontaneous portraits of musicians, so as we shoot you can just get lost in the moment and not have to worry about posing for the camera.
Working in this way I will create a wide variety of images, so whether you are looking for headshots to suit programmes and brochures, or publicity shots for media and websites we will be able to produce the perfect results.
Price for a 2 hour shoot on location including digital images is £395. I can also offer a student rate for midweek sessions - please get in touch for more details.
"I have to be honest, I really do not like having my photo taken! The photoshoot I set up with Alexa Kidd-May was my first experience of feeling comfortable in front of the camera. She was friendly, made me feel comfortable, had clear ideas and venues for different shots and she was open to all my suggestions. As we chatted away, I somehow kept forgetting what I was actually there for; I certainly had no idea how many pictures she had taken! I received the proofs very quickly and Alexa was willing to work on any photos I asked her to. What is there not to like? I would and have highly recommended her to my colleagues and friends."

"Being photographed by Alexa was a really great experience and I was thrilled with the pictures. As a camera-shy introvert I am very used to seeing pictures of myself with a stern or ironic expression and it is all due to her easy manner and skillful timing that I managed to be relaxed and not overperforming. The locations were a perfect choice, the beautiful colours of Greenwich Park and the majestic setting of the Old Royal Naval College gave a great sense of depth. At the end of the shoot there were so many different images and very subtle variations and the presentation on the memory stick in different file sizes and with a video montage was a beautiful touch!"

"I was delighted with the publicity photographs Alexa took. She immediately put me at ease during the shoot and was very economical with time so that in the end I had many photos of different settings and poses I could use. She has a very calm approach and an excellent eye for detail. It was very easy to access the photos once they were ready. I was over the moon with the results of our shoot and would recommend her to anyone."
