United Kingdom, England, Kent
Based in the Medway Basin, North Kent, I'm working on getting a studio space, and have already found some interesting out door spaces nearby.
I have two weekday TFCD sessions to fill each month - mail me!.................
I've worked with models from all backgrounds and love a challenge.
Mainly interested in working with those who can bring some creativity to a shoot I'm more than happy to travel around Kent and London, which I'd call "local".
Please bear in mind this is my full time occupation so please get in touch if you'd like to shoot but dont be upset if I cant accomodate you right away.
I'm a qualified commercial/fashion/glamour/portrait photographer and a member of both SWPP, SIGFP & BPPA, Dip Photo, with bases in Kent & Derby. I'm looking to meet models, make up artists, body paint artists, stylists, wardrobe stylists and fellow photographers to work with on a TF* basis as time allows, to achieve beautiful results both indoors and on location. If anyone is interested in working with me, please let me know.
I am within the Medway towns, Chatham (30/40 mins from most main towns) so if anyone likes my work and wants a shoot, get in touch. I also travel regularly to(from Derby) 50 mins of Birmingham, Leicester, and Stoke on Trent within 20mins of Nottingham, etc. Approx. 90 mins from Manchester, and Lincoln.
I've been shooting seriously for about 20 years, the last 7 with digital, and now do some commercial work mainly advertising and product photography, and have a growing collection of private clients, for whom I produce "coffee table books" ranging from children, couples, engagement to full boudoir, and fetish.
My rates are flexible, re time, output, and location, so if you want to hire me, drop me a line with your idea and I'll send you a quote. I did have a standard price list but felt it was better to offer a completely one off service.
Whether it is for a special occasion, to add to your modelling portfolio or a stunning family or individual portrait be assured that I will capture the moment in a professional, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
If you are interested in or would like experience in this form of modeling and are willing to work on a TF/CD/P collaboration basis, especially for new lighting and pose tests, then you are very welcome to get in touch or just like what you see and want to have your own shots, please get in touch.
I will as mentioned travel for the right shot, location, girl.............. as I need to update my work regularly.
Due to client confidentiality of most of the commissions I undertake, I am usually unable to display any images from these commissions, therefore I am looking for models who are willing to allow posting of images on these and my new web pages.
TFCD/P means that I will select which files to edit and I will supply you with a CD/ Download of web-ready files within 10 days of the shoot of the files that are to my standards. I do not supply every file from a shoot, unless we have an ongoing collaboration.........or you become my muse
If you would like to work with me ... you need to set aside a proper amount of time, and we will aim to get as much done as possible in that time.......My TFCD, needs to be taken seriously, as it is limited by my other paid work.........

Though of course I will be looking to pay certain models who I wish to work with - especially those with their own creativeness and spark.
Current areas of interest:- Pin ups, Pin ups, Pin ups, 40's 50's cinema, era..... Old and Modern Lingerie, Tattooed girls - Gothic and alternative - Portraiture and Fashion Mono and low light photography High Key fashion/Retro Location work - something urban and edgy.
My shoots cover a mixture of location and studio work, both of which I find interesting and challenging. I have mobile studio equipment so am able to shoot anywhere indoors that you may have available.
I also have a small home studio (Chatham) which can offer a variety of sets and suitable for styles from glamour through to lifestyle, using professional studio lighting. I will have shortly, access to a local Studio, at reduced rates, and have a list of others, both in the Midlands and Kent I'm happy to use..
Chaperones can accompany models I have no problems with them coming along they prove great at making coffee etc...Or holding a reflector. However if you want to model or work on a closed set so be it. Regardless of what limit you work to, or age you are my golden rule is The model's comfort and safety comes first.
Regardless of what sort of shoot we arrange, I will require you to fill out a model release, to fit with the work we are undertaking, and that suits both parties for the shoot. (TFCD for example gets a model release but I sign over a licence to you for self promotion rights) you will be required to produce proof of age - photo ID - and proof of address, ie, two forms.
I am happy to work with accompanied under 18's. I will always have the relevant forms signed (Model release, you & Guardian/Parent) and completed beforehand. These will of course be limited to Under 18's levels. Drop me a mail if I can help you, or you want to explore and idea....its only an email away.

"I worked with Alan Martin at my first ever group shoot, He made me feel conformable & happier, he is a great photographer & also a great guy! Whatever stage you are at as a model try and book Alan because we had a laugh & produced some brilliant shots, Alan comes highly recommended from me & I have no doubt he will be recommended by anyone that works with him. Look forward to working with him again."

"It's clear for everyone to see from his work that Alan is a extremely talented photographer! I've worked with him on various occasions now and I'm always overly pleased with the outcome.. It's always something new! He gives direction and is a lovely man. I've got to know him as a friend as well as on a professional basis, and I sincerely wish him all the best in 2011.
