The shoot was a demonic shoot shoot with my mum. Firstly booking my shoot was stress free and really simple, any questions I needed to ask were answered within 24 hours, unlike most bookings I have made in the past with different businesses. Rick and Claire (Mr and Mrs HorrifyMe) are the most professional, kind, friendly, non jugdemental people I have ever met. The shoot took place at Sheffield Horrorcon (13.05.17) which was orginally booked for their studio, but after asking Rick if it would be possible to do the shoot at the convention, the date was still set. After all it was my birthday and what a birthday it would be... Horrorcon and a Horror photo shoot with Horrify Me on the same day.

The shoot: I have never had a photo shoot done before, so I felt a little out my comfort zone, but Rick and Claire put me at ease within seconds. After all the makeup was applied we were ready to get started. Adding more and more and just a bit more blood (I mean you can't ever NOT have enough blood). Rick guided me into certain poses as he snapped away with the camera. The outcome was absolutley incredible, I knew the shoot would be good, but it super exceeded my expectations.

I could go on and on about my experience, but where's the fun in that. If you... yes YOU are thinking of doing a shoot with Horrify Me, STOP thinking and get it booked. It really is an excellent experience not to be missed by any horror fan. The images that appear on the prints after the shoot are simply beautiful, extremly detailed and worth every penny. I will be booking another shoot very soon to experience it at their studio, where there are no limitations. So what are you waiting for?
1 . Book your shoot
2. Meet the most amazing and genunie people
3. Have the best experince of your life.

Thankyou Horrify Me, you're awesome

Well, what can I say? I stood around for 10 hours while Rick and his wife Claire painted me, drew on me and stuck pins on me. Best shoot of my life. Rick and Claire are the best team and it's awesome watching them work! It was a howl doing the shoot, we laughed through the whole day, watched god knows how many films and just had the best day! They managed to persuade a friend Mike into being my Mr Pinhead (Poor Mike). He rocked it, the whole team were 100% professional even though we all ran round like children all day. We even had Pizza for breakfast ;)

The images are stunning and rock every part. I'm blown away and truly overwhelmed by how much I love them! I loved being The Bride of Pinhead. They are the most laid back people and I just can't wait to get back and see/work with them again!! Thanks so much!!

I can't recommend them enough, I literally had the BEST time! Would 100% come back! Thanks so much! Lottii xxx

The 'Bride of Pinhead' shoot is the third shoot I have done with the extremely talented Horrify Me team. And what a shoot it was!! After months of planning and preparing from everyone involved, the finished shots far exceeded my expectations. This was a dream shoot for me to do as Pinhead is my all time favourite horror character. And the vision that Horrify Me expressed to bring these characters to life was just mind blowing. I cannot reccommend Horrify Me highly enough and if you ever get a chance to become any iconic horror character from a zombie all the way up to whatever you can dig out of the darkest depths of your minds then I advise you to take the opportunity. You won't be dissappointed I promise you that!

Amazing shoot with an awesome guy! Applied to a casting and got chosen to be murdered 4-5 times in one day. Bloody brill! Fun, friendly and easy to work with and for. Ideas a-plenty and endless blood and gore. Perfect!

Wow, what a shoot! Where do I start? I was absolutely over the moon when Rick agreed to work with me on my first modelling tour as I've been a fan of his work for quite some time. And you know, it was everything I'd dreamed it would be! Rick is an absolutely lovely guy and insanely good at what he does! His pre-shoot communication was absolutely excellent and I had a good idea of what to expect on the day. Having arrived at his incredibly spacious studio, I geeked out over his amazing collection of horror memorabilia, props and self made costumes. Rick was kind enough to have provided or made all props and even fake blood/goop for me beforehand and immediately made me feel completely at ease with a nice cup of tea.

A man of all too many talents, Rick is far too modest and it's evident within minutes of speaking to him just how passionate he is about his work. Easy to talk to, full of boundless creativity and with a very relaxed way of working, he's got tonnes of interesting stories and the time passed quickly during the make up process. Equipped with a fantastic arsenal of homemade and professional makeup and painting equipment, Rick's background in fine art is evident in his very detailed and elaborate work. This even included liquid latex.

Rick made sure I was warm and comfortable throughout the process. We had a great laugh until it was time to shoot; especially as I was hoovering round the set dressed as Samara from The Ring! Rick's studio is really well equipped with plenty of lights, gels, backdrops and smoke machines. He has a fantastic eye for lighting and uses really unique and interesting methods to emphasise this and create atmosphere. He gives very good direction when needed but also allowed me plenty of creative freedom with my posing. He was very respectful and considerate of preserving my modesty when we shot nude before the makeup went on and showed me the images from each set as we shot them so I could see what was working and what wasn't.

When we'd finished shooting indoors, we headed outside to a nearby wood to take some juxtaposition shots and had a good laugh at the motorists staring at us. All the while, Rick was very considerate and made sure I didn't walk barefoot through all the nettles (I did anyway but he was kind enough to flatten them for me first).

If you've managed to read this far, I will say this to summarise: I honestly cannot sing this lovely artists and photographers praises enough! Kind, very modest, funny and super enthusiastic, Rick is absolutely amazing at what he does and not only creates a great image but fantastic storytelling and memories too! I went away at the end of the day with a huge smile on my face (under the latex anyway) and some excellent stories to tell. I can recommend this lovely gentleman 110% and would utterly love to work with him again in the future! Thank you so much for a truly incredible start to my tour Rick!

I arranged a demonic photo-shoot for my 40th Birthday with my wife and two children, Nathan (12) and Millie (9). As soon as we arrived at the studio, Rick put us at ease with a cup of tea, where we discussed our ideas and the overall photo-shoot. Rick has an amazing ability to put you at ease from the get go and got the best out of our children. Even during the process of making Claire and the kids into demons, he was outgoing and chatting away to Nathan and Mille, so they felt fully involved and relaxed through the while shoot. Throughout the whole day the kids never got bored and when it came to the messy parts of the shoot, they proper got into it. Were else can you mutilate your dad and end up covered in blood? I would highly recommend the photo-shoot to anyone especially if you would like a different family portrait. Both of our kids fully enjoyed the day and couldn't wait to get back to school and show off the pictures to their friends. All I would say is to be prepared for a very messing an sticky day. By the end of the shoot, you'll be completely covered in blood and have some great shoots to show to your family and friends.

What can I say. An incredibly professional and well mannered artist that is utterly passionate about his work. His care and respect for his clients is second to none. His skills far surpass just being a photographer, he's also a skilled make-up artist. Very easy going and such a laugh throughout the whole experience. The quality of the images are superb. I had the pleasure of working with Horrify Me on the Bride of Frankenstein shoot and loved every minute of it.

So I came back for my second shoot and I chose a horror beauty theme this time, in a boudior style shoot, but as a Zombie! And I was able to get a few beauty shoots before all the horror make up was done witch was great too. Well what can I say? It was absoultly amazing! I loved it and it was so much fun from the shoot and the whole process was just great. Rick is always a pleasure to work with and just makes you feel so comfortable throughout the process and always helps and guides you where needed which is good and it's always good fun. I took a friend with me this time and she loved seeing the transformation of me as well. The final result of the pictures are just amazing. I absolutely love them, I actually look like I've come back from the dead which I love. I felt so comfortable in the shoot and I was keept nice and warm through out that I completely forgot I was half naked by the end of it all. The whole day was great fun and a giggle and the results at the end are just amazing too. If you have not booked up a shoot or thinking abou it with Rick then do it! I would do recommend him as he's such a pleasure to work with and does great things too! And he has so much passion for what he does. I'm already thinking about another shoot later this year.

Wow! I cannot recommend the Horrify Me experience enough. From my very first tentative email, the process was wonderful. Rick was so helpful and accommodating meaning that I got to provide my boyfriend with the most memorable Christmas present imaginable. Rick's makeup skills are incredible and the way he took our ideas and incorporated his creative vision and flair was seamless. The day of the shoot was so much fun, and actually really relaxing. He helped us to go way further than we could have ever imagined. I would urge anyone considering something a little different to go for this experience. I'd love to go back and try another theme now. Rick is a pleasure to deal with and a true creative genius. Horrify Me is the most unique and fun way to create lasting memories. Everyone should book! Thank you so much Rick.

Well what can I say... WOW! We had a shoot where I was made into a vampire. Pre comms were excellent and when we arrived we were greeted with lots of tea and the brief for the day. Rick was absolutely lovely and even got my partner involved. This was my partner's first ever shoot where he actually loved it and wants to do it again! Rick was so respectful of my body, keeping me covered/warm that I completely forgot I was naked. I would love to work with Rick again. And models, you're nuts if you don't book Rick, it's an amazing experience to have under your belt and who better to show and teach you than Rick. 110% reccomended and thank you so much Rick. What an amazing day!

I had a shoot with Rick today and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is very professional, creative and friendly. Very ambitious person, would definitely work with him again if given the opportunity. I have never done a gore shoot to the extent of today's shoot and I really enjoyed the new, fun and 'bloody' ;) experience! Very skilled, if you are thinking of working with Rick then don't think twice, he is awesome!

Had so much fun shooting, felt totally comfortable despite being on a busy convention floor. Really respectful of the direction you want to go in but full of incredible ideas when you are stuck for them. Will definitely be getting shot by them again!

We had a fantastic time at our Joker & Harley Quinn shoot with Rick. Rick is very professional and has a very clear idea of what he wants to achieve visually and can somehow magically bring that out of you for the shots. The shoot was a lot of fun (if a little sticky and gooey), but we really enjoyed it and the shots were epic. If you are thinking of booking a shoot... Book a shoot. The End.

We had a zombie family photoshoot (children as well, and they loved the whole experience). Rick and Claire explained the process and stages of make up to us all, having to get covered in muck and blood. It is an amazing experience. Rick is extremely patient with me as I giggled most of the time. I couldnt help it, it was fun. Claire was on hand with make up touch ups and cups of tea if we wanted them. This is the second time I myself have been to Horrify Me, as I also played the character Nosferatu. Again another amazing experience. I totally recommend a photoshoot done here. I for one will be back again.

Awesome experience! They took their time to get the make up effects perfect and we had an absolute blast! The finished photos are amazing, Rick is a true artist, and I would recommend this to everyone (we did a family shoot with our kids involved - 12yo girl an 16yo boy).

Had a really fun shoot with Rick today. It was my first shoot with him and I felt very comfortable. His ideas and direction are amazing as is his work. He is a very professional and talented photographer who I would jump at the chance of working with again. Thank you so much.

I don't think I have had so much fun with golden syrup before meeting Rick. Shooting with on some (very controversial) shoots has been amazing and he even gave me the honour of being banned from Facebook! I 100% recommend this horror freak to turn you into your wildest nightmares!
