Having been a freelance photographer for many years, Sarah McKenna-Ayres started TigerBean Media in January 2010. Initially assignments were focussed on portrait photography and creating artwork for the purposes of business promotion. The business then swiftly expanded into photo shoot projects for corporate branding, communication and corporate events. Examples include: a 500 people symposium and exposition ‘The Temenos Client Forum’ (TCF) in Bangkok, the Waterstone Awards, Oxford Street lights for Clearisland Productions, the annual IBS Publishing Awards and Conference, Quorum 15, RTPI Awards, Wolters Kluwer, HotWire PR symposium amongst many others. Projects to date also include extensive work covering branding photo stock creation for financial annual reports, marketing collateral and website design.
More recently assignments have extended into architectural photography projects; photographing high end commercial and residential properties for John Paul Construction, Botes Interiors, Antony Roberts to name but a few. Projects included progressive build photo shoots to the final development of Wivenhoe House in Colchester, Glynde Mews in Knightsbridge, The Enson Works in Stoke, Curtain Road in Shoreditch amongst others.
Without doubt Sarah’s greatest honour to date, was being appointed to be one of the few official photographers to cover the St. Mary’s University[PJM1] leg of the state visit of Pope Benedict XVI during his tour of the UK in 2010. so thank you to St Mary's University for choosing TigerBean Media amongst many to take those photos (viewable in "People" pages) and still hiring me for some fantastic events.
Sarah earned her Photography qualifications in Richmond. Sarah carries out her assignments with her trusty and enthusiastic TigerBean Team; Poppy Croft as First Assistant, Lily Ayres as Stock Photography Assistant and Annie Ayres as Marketing specialist. The team always delivers a fully satisfying and efficient package on both event and architectural shoots.
