"We found Martin's recommendation on the East Dulwich Forum. We were looking for a photographer for our family gathering to celebrate my mother in law's 90th birthday. Martin came round in advance to see what would suit and then smoothly organised us all into a really wonderful portfolio of mixed family photos on the day. A great, stress free experience with some lovely photos to cherish at the end of it." - Sue

"Martin visited our house for a family photo shoot. We were so pleased with the results. It was very relaxed and Martin captured us just as we had hoped. He was happy to be directed by us but also had great ideas of his own for shots. We had a 4 month old baby and a puppy which did not phase Martin at all! We have subsequently used Martin for a 40/70th birthday party and a christening, with equally pleasing results." - Vicky

"We were looking for some profile images of us for some PR work as we were looking to launch a new business venture and needed some top class images for it. We needed the shots showing us as a team on location and to capture the personality of us and our business. We chose Martin and found him to be professional from start to finish. The PR firm we use were delighted with the images and with the time it took to capture and receive the final versions. As busy people we have deadlines to work to and found Martin accommodating to our needs. We look forward to working with Martin again in the future for his simple, drama free approach and high quality end product." -Nick - Rooftop Film Club.

"I needed some portrait photos taken for my business and asked Martin to take these. I was looking for a combination of approachable and professional and Martin got it spot on. I was impressed by his way of putting me at ease, his patience and of course the quality of his photos – I had plenty to choose from! I also appreciated his great sense of fun and would have no hesitation in recommending Martin to others." Jaqueline - The Graduate Coaching Partnership

"Martin is a very talented photographer - he listened to my needs carefully, and as well as having his own excellent ideas for the shoot he was also keen to include my ideas. He has a very intuitive understanding of what makes a good photo. He's a friendly guy, and a great pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Martin to anyone wanting a professional photographer." Stephen 

"I needed some headshots for marketing assets for my publishing company. I'm not particularly comfortable having my picture taken, but Martin made me feel really comfortable. He was extremely professional, enthused and made me feel really relaxed about the whole process - even going on to explain some of the technical aspects of what he was doing which set me at ease too. The end result was a set of pictures that I am really happy with it, and I actually had a really good day! Thanks so much!" -  Graham Thomas

"We had a fair trade breakfast at The Bread of Life Centre and chose Martin for the photography. He came along and took some great shots of the event and group shots too, which we used for our PR and promo activities and also shot the Fashion Show for us which took place later. The images captured the mood and feel of the event and were delivered swiftly to us. I am happy to recommend Martin to anyone looking for a quality photographer" - Mary

"Martin took some high quality photographs of my exhibition at Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford. He had to work in difficult conditions in a public space but was very patient and personable and provided me with some great images for promotion." - Les

"I had portraits taken of my husband and I and of my grandchildren also. I was made to feel very relaxed and comfortable during our portrait session, and am delighted with the pictures of my grandkids too. We have the pictures up on our walls and have to use Martin again for another session with the grandchildren." - Cynthia

“I had the pleasure to model for on an Editorial Shoot in Spring 2012 where Martin was the photographer. I really enjoyed working with Martin, he is a great photographer, easy to work with and is very kind. I would be delighted to work again with Martin and I highly recommend him to anybody who wants to spend a great day and have wonderful pictures.” – Cristelle

“One of the most amazing experiences!” – Marion

“Martin knew exactly what I wanted from my 1950’s Retro publicity shoot. He brought along a lovely Make-up artist on the day. He made me feel at ease, the lighting was good and it was an enjoyable couple of hours. The turn around was also very quick in receiving my photos.” – Beverley Stone

“I was a total beginner and found his tutorials very focused and clear. He’d obviously put a lot of thought into planning each session, which included the very basics of understanding Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO and more complex elements such as Depth of Field. The theory was always backed up with practical exercises and recommendations for further reading and experimentation. Martin was successful at motivating and challenging me whilst at the same time encouraging me to have faith in my ability and potential. I have since developed a passion for macro nature photography and more recently, portraits.” – Vicky 

“I had the pleasure of being photographed with my wife and daughter. Martin was very professional and incredibly patient. Hehad a clear idea of how to best shoot the family which did not involve me out of shot!. I would highly recommend Martin as my wife and i felt very at ease with him. I also felt that he was very good value for money.” – Mike

” Tracy and I were very pleased with the pictures you took of the wedding. All the photographs were of high quality and you captured every part of the wedding but without at any time intruding on the service. The photos captured both the seriousness of the service and the informal aspects as well.They will bring back happy memories for yours to come” – Andrew
