About Us

Hi, I’m Ketan

A storyteller –  using the power of images and magic of words

A second generation photographer – the passion for creating great images runs in the blood! Originally from the rainbow nation of South African, Ketan now calls London his home. He started his career as a community Pharmacist and then landed a series of diverse roles in Healthcare IT, Pharmaceuticals and Financial Services.

The practice and joy of photography always remained on the periphery, until 2009 when he founded Ketan Amin Photography – shooting weddings, families and portraits. Subsequently, the offerings have expanded to business and corporate projects and events – across the continent and world.

Our Business

The business was officially founded in 2009 as A-Photo, offering photography services to the wedding industry, families and individuals.

Over the years, we’ve built on the quality and breadth of our product offering, streamlined our processes and approach and solidified our values, all the while working with such diverse and amazing people. 2017 saw us rebrand the business to Ketan Amin (Photography), putting a signature to our image of professionalism, integrity and excellence.
