Kiran Misra Photography

Hi! Welcome to :

SCROLL TO BEGIN

KM

My photography is for you if you want natural, vibrant pictures bursting with color and filled with emotion and depth. We'll work together until you get exactly the image you want. You'll be completely in charge of the story these images tell about you, with ample guidance and direction if you're not used to being in front of a camera. No canned poses, awkward head-tilts, or washed-out photos. Ever.

Let's Work together

Kiran makes any shoot comfortable and fun. Don't know how to position your face or arms? She will tell you how. Think you're un-photogenic? She will make you gorgeous.

I'm a photographer currently based in New Delhi, India and available for travel! I just finished up my Master's in Public Policy at the University of Chicago then spent a year traveling the world as a journalist, policy researcher, and language student. You can usually find me biking (very slowly) with a completely disregard for traffic laws (sorry, drivers!) while listening to a Harry Potter podcast (or a bhangra mix) on my purple headphones. I'm probably on my way to dance practice, to try a new food, or pet a cat.

Who Am I? I'll Never Tell. (JK)

I love stories. I love hearing them, on a podcast or in one of the dozens of shows I serial-watch on Netflix (ask me about the time I watched 10 seasons of Grey's Anatomy in one summer). I love telling them even more, whether I'm performing stories of Indian mythology through movement as a dancer or playing violin in an orchestra to illustrate the joy of a little girl on Christmas Eve. But my favorite stories to tell are those of the experiences, people, and things I love. In a complicated world, too often stories get written about all of us without our consent due to our skin color, gender, ability, religion, or passport. I want to take that power back.

A director of an orchestra I performed in once told me that when Beethoven was losing his hearing, he wanted his stories to be told so badly that he lay on the ground to hear the vibrations of different notes on the piano when perfecting his compositions. With photography, it doesn't have to be that hard. Whatever you want to tell the world about yourself, I'd love to help you do it through photography.

Kiran is incredibly professional and great to work with! She handles short deadlines well while maintaining her high quality standards, and her work always has a recognizable style. She is also a very versatile photographer, I’ve had the opportunity to work with her on dance-related projects and she always does an incredible job, but I’ve also seen her photojournalism and portraits and am always impressed by everything she does.

Kiran is a gem! The Community Action Bureau hired Kiran to photograph our end- of-year community celebration and her photographs truly captured vibrant moments between Harris students and partners from the community. Kiran knew exactly what we would want for the organization and she shot photos that we will continue to use for publicity materials throughout the year. On top of the excellent quality of her photos, Kiran was laid back and fun to work with!

Don't Take It From Me

Kiran did an absolutely fantastic job. She was very friendly, communicative, and clear, and the photos looked amazing. She did a great job discussing ideas with me, and helped me convey what I wanted to convey both very clearly and beautifully. He framing for the shots was fantastic, and her understanding of lighting allowed for the photos to look realistic and crystal clear. 

-ALEXANDER

There is no photographer I trust more to take a “double tap” worthy picture of me than Kiran! She instantly makes you feel comfortable at the shoot, and gives amazing direction for those who get a little shy in front of the camera (like me!). Unlike some photographers who approach photography mechanically and formulaically, Kiran emulates such passion for the craft as she shifts from setting to setting for creative shots, too. She is direct, but also kind, creative, and efficient— which are all the key ingredients to an exceptional photographer. Couldn’t recommend Kiran enough!

-ANDIE

The best part about working with Kiran is that she is so encouraging! She makes you feel comfortable and that you look great in every shot. She gives clear direction to ensure that every photo comes out as perfect as possible. Kiran has take all of my favorite photos to date. Her edits are beautiful and she always shares the photos in a timely manner. You cannot go wrong booking a shoot with her!

-STEPHANIE

Kiran was an absolute joy to work with. The photos came out super natural and are some of the best photos I have of myself. She was super patient with us and all of our outfit changes and particular requests (and we had a lot). You should absolutely reach out to Kiran for your photo shoot needs. Love, love, loved my experience with her overall!

-AMBER

Simply put, working with Kiran was so easy! From being flexible with the date of the photo shoot to making the actual session feel comforting instead of intimidating, everything happened seamlessly. And we’re not even talking about the photos yet! They were everything I could have hoped for and I know my parents will forever show them off to everyone around them. Kiran perfectly captures special moments around her consistently! 

-JOCELYNE

Kiran is an amazing photographer. From the beginning, you feel comfortable and Kiran gradually makes you feel like a real model throughout the photoshoot. She is creative by giving you tips and ideas if you ask but at the same time allowing you freedom to do as you please. My pictures are beautifully taken and I now use them as my professional photos. Would definitely work with her again!

-MONICA

Working with Kiran was the most fun experience. She took my graduation photos and when I saw all the pictures she took, I couldn’t have been more happy. She always came up with the best and most creative poses and photo shoot ideas. From the backdrops to the lighting, each photo turned out to be frame-worthy. I would 100% recommend Kiran to anyone who is interested in any kind of photo shoot - one of the best parts about her photography is that she’s so versatile and has a lot of experience shooting all types of occasions.

Kiran is the BOMB. I've been really lucky to have her photograph me over the last few years and every photo she has ever given me has been breathtaking. The photos are so romantic and yet dramatic, they can make the most dull moments seem alluring. If I could hire her to photograph the entirety of my life, have no doubt, I would. She is so amazing to work with and her photographs are unlike anything else. Anyone who hires Kiran is beyond lucky to receive visual evidence of her talent.  

-MEGHA

Working with Kiran is amazing! She’s always very considerate of the models or the product when we shoot, providing plenty of direction and guidance to help make the photoshoot process as seamless, efficient and fun as possible. I’ve worked with Kiran on a variety of different projects and every time she brought something new and interesting to the table.

Kiran was wonderfully understanding and willing to juggle challenging schedules to make this shoot work. She was speedy with sending me the edited photos despite traveling cross-country at the same time. When I think of someone who keeps their word, I think of Kiran.
