Learn what we do here at Horrify Me
The UK's leading award-winning horror portrait photography studio
Horrify Me is a truly unusual and amazing experience!

First question: What exactly is Horrify Me?

Horrify Me is a groundbreaking portrait photography studio, that has been pioneering the concept of the "horror portrait" since 2014. We transform you into zombies, vampires, demons, and other iconic horror characters and then shoot amazing portraits of you looking incredibly scary. This unusual and innovative service operates to an artistic level which means that your horror portraits are created to a high degree of movie-like realism and sophistication. This is not "novelty Halloween" photos but authentic, scary, and often very gory portraits that would not look out of place on a Hollywood film poster.

The photoshoots conducted by Horrify Me are not your usual, everyday photoshoots of smiling couples, cute babies or blushing brides. We specialise in horror, rather than simply "dabbling" in it, crafting sensational horror portraits that will blow your mind!

Creating authentic horror photography of YOU is outstanding FUN.
So far, Horrify Me has had people from all walks of life (not just horror fans) in the studio, and every time, the working environment is fun and full of laughs. Despite the scary photos that come from the shoot, actually creating them is a great experience! It's messy, gory fun having a full horror makeover, and then being instructed into several horror poses. You'll be snarling, biting, dribbling blood, and trying to look as horrible as possible.

Empowering Dark Boudoir portraits.
Our beauty portraits are sexy, gorgeous, and full of mystery and very creative lighting. These shoots can be carried out as classic boudoir style shoots, or we can introduce some horror elements into the shoots if you like.

Horrify Me offers an amazing, unforgettable experience that you will simply love! Horrify Me provides a truly unique opportunity to experience the creation of very high-end, movie-quality horror photos, in which you will appear as scary as you possibly can be. This is achieved with a combination of camera setup and lighting, makeup, blood and grime, and some incredible, expert digital editing. The final pieces will blow your mind!

Don't miss this this amazing, unique photoshoot experience!

Dark Boudoir Photography & Portraits

Forget the high street boudoir shoots you've seen before, here at Horrify Me we take boudoir photography to an amazing new level. Non-horror beauty shoots allow you to explore feminine beauty in dark, mysterious atmospheric settings, or we can mix beauty and horror with gory boudoir and terrifying erotic themes.
About the Artist

Rick Jones is a man obsessed. Like many of his generation, he grew up in the 1970s devouring the Hammer horror double bills that were shown weekly on TV, and in his teens during the 1980s he relished the golden era of horror and video nasties. Censorship was a big deal in the genre back then, and it was the mission of every true horror fan to try and track down uncut copies of dodgy slasher flicks. Today, his dislike of censorship remains strong and he refuses to compromise his work and he doesn't care if it offends you.

Alongside this passion for the macabre, Rick was also an enthusiastic artist with a high creative drive. After studying fine art and design, he began a long career in graphics and design, during which time he created illustrations, images and designs for magazines, book covers, and advertising.

The creatures that Rick creates in his Kent studio hark back to the films of George A. Romero and Tom Savini. His zombies are disgusting, rotten, and gory, and his vampires are uncompromisingly savage. You won't find any chick-flick friendly sparkly vampires here! The zombie portraits and vampire portraits created at Horrify Me are designed to scare, shock and delight.

Rick's creativity and his love for horror films have been two dominant forces in his life since childhood. It just seemed inevitable that the two would one day clash and produce work that has since gone on to earn wide recognition and awards. Rick was made to do this work. And he loves it!

Rick is married to his wife Claire, who is an endless source of support. She puts up with a very weird and crazy life.


After studying fine art and design, Rick began a creative career that has spanned his entire working life. Working primarily in graphic design and commercial graphics production for vehicle graphics and advertising hoardings, he has also had plenty of experience working with book authors, magazine editors, and ad agencies. Rick has also been a hardcore fan of horror since childhood. A chance opportunity came to him back in 2013 to create a book cover for an author (something he had done many times before), but this book was a horror novel. Writer Lisa Richardson's hugely successful BLOG OF THE DEAD series of books needed covers and Rick was known as "that design guy who loves horror". This was the first time his professional creative skills met his passion for horror and almost by accident, HORRIFY ME was born! Since then, HORRIFY ME has grown into an unusual success thanks mainly to Rick's pure love for the work he does and his lifetime of creative working experience and horror knowledge. His photographs have won many awards and accolades, including the National Photography Award, the ScareTour SCAR Award, and the Alt Fashion Photographer of the Year Award. The macabre horror photos he creates have been published all over the world in numerous magazines, appeared on many book covers, been used to promote scare attractions, and even appeared in national press. Rick's work is followed online by genuine luminaries of the horror craft including Tom Savini, Clive Barker, and Tom Holland, but what makes him even more proud is the fact that many young students follow and study his work as a source of inspiration and learning. There are no educational course that teach you horror photography - Rick's groundbreaking work has been the result of tireless trial and error, and he has developed some unorthodox techniques in the photography studio which result in his unique style.
