Martin Shaw is a successful and respected freelance photographer who believes that creating any image should be a happy and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
Whilst enjoying the challenge of product, landscape and architectural photography, Martin's passion is people - at work, rest and play. Martin can cope with incredibly complex lighting situations, the sensitive temperaments and short attention spans of children, and the tight schedules of leading artists. This translates into a rare ability to put people rapidly at ease in virtually any environment.
Martin's images tell the story his clients need to tell, rather than presenting the photographer's fixed style or potentially inappropriate artistic statement. However, his innovative images remain cutting edge, contemporary and classic.
Unusually, Martin has a long and successful career in sales and marketing, which gives him an unparalleled insight into the pressures, motivations and needs of his commercial clients.
In addition, his initial degree and early career as a Product Designer contributes significant industrial and manufacturing understanding, along with a structured and creative approach and a trained studio technique.
Customer service and satisfaction are paramount and Martin holds an enhanced DBS certificate for working with children and vulnerable adults.
