University photography


“Her portraits really helped us to show Oxford staff and academics in another light.”
Anne-Marie Canning, Access and Schools Liaison Officer, University College

I offer a range of services tailored to academic institutions, and have worked closely with a number of Colleges and individuals at the University of Oxford, as well as academic organisations like Food And Behaviour Research and the Society for Applied Microbiology.

My work includes professional headshots and portraits, event photography, and editorial work.  I also document personal and corporate events which take place within university grounds, including weddings and summer parties.


“With Mim’s photos, we were able to bring to life an important publication to promote fundraising of postgraduate scholarships at Univ. Through a range of informal and formal shots in our gardens, Mim perfectly captured the personalities of individuals in the College’s postgraduate community. Thank you!”
Christopher Major, Communications Officer, University College

The quality of the photos she took reflected perfectly the success of the evening. Highly recommended.”

“I was really pleased with the photos that Mim took which we used immediately to update our profile images on our website and in forthcoming publications.  I really appreciated Mim’s calm and professional approach which meant that the process of taking the photos was relaxed, enjoyable and quick.  It has definitely been worth getting good quality images of the team to use in our own publicity material and for external use e.g. to provide to conference organisers etc.; and wish we’d worked with her earlier!”
Anita Ghosh, Food Systems Programme Manager, Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford
