Vanilla Photography is a creative little studio based in the foothills of Mossley in a space that allows the freedom to explore and develop new ideas.

“My interest in photography stems from an interest in people and their cultures.  With my personal photography I love to explore the everyday lives and tales of different people, observing and recording the profound differences in values and customs amongst different social groups. My character studies are a reflection of building rapport with each subject and delving into their personal lives to understand first the person behind the face and then to portray them photographically as best I can.”
Kiran also undertakes documentary, reportage style wedding photography which compliments his interest in people and their cultures, more of which can be seen at our related wedding site: vanillawedding.co.uk
