Welcome to my profile. My name is Martin.

  • My Background

I started taking photographs when I was still at school. I have shot a mixture of styles on a commercial basis since 1982. I worked as an assistant for a professional photographer for just over 5 years, and that industry experience is something I will forever be grateful for. This was primarily because it gave me the confidence to go it alone as a full-time photographer.

A few years ago I moved my photography from a full-time to part-time status. This works much better for me creatively.

  • Communication

I believe good communication is important. I will always try to give as much information as I can about a shoot beforehand. If you would like to clarify or ask something specific, please do so. There are no stupid or silly questions.

If it is helpful, we can discuss our shoot(s) in advance on the phone. If you have not worked with me before, and you would like to, we can even do a video call.

I never try to force a model to do something they do not want to, or change any of our plans without prior discussion and agreement.

  • Payment, TFP and Collaborations

When it comes to paying a model for any sort of shoot, I would like to think that I am flexible and reasonable. If I am paying a model I do not share images by default. If you would like images for your portfolio or other use, then we can discuss a TFP or collaborative shoot. I also expect a certain basic understanding of things like model releases, posing, and basic pre-shoot preparation. Please ask me if you need any clarification.

  • My Work

My shoots can be because I want to create something specific for my portfolio or to satisfy my creative drive. I do also shoots for commissions, client requests, collaborations and for publication.

I shoot at home, on location, hotels, and in studios. I also travel, and have my own studio lighting when needed.

I treat all models in a professional manner, but also with kindness, consideration and respect. I do not think it is a big thing to ask to expect the same in return. I am not perfect or all seeing, so on shoots your suggestions or input are welcomed. Whatever we are shooting, I believe that the end result is created from the efforts of all involved.
