When Martin asked me to be his life model for his art group in Spain, I immediately jumped at the chance! What a lovely and charming guy. Not only was I enjoying a few hours of life modelling whilst there (he even let me keep the paintings he'd done of myself), but Martin also kindly took the time to drive me to several interesting locations for photo shoots nearly everyday, as well as take me to other equally interesting places for sightseeing, shopping and eating out! He certainly knows the best location spots and we ended up taking hundreds and hundreds of photos!
I was made to feel truly welcome throughout my week long stay with Martin and his lovely wife Barbara. I can't thank them enough for their amazing hospitality and I'd urge any model who gets an opportunity to work with him in Spain, to grab it quick because I guarantee they'll enjoy the experience as much as I did!
Thanks again Martin and Barbara and I hope to plan another visit next summer! :)
Martin and I clicked like magic and we spent the little time we had due to other complications in which we weren't involved got us a bit stuck from the start, but despite that we eventually managed to get in a days life drawing with several poses, trips to the local beauty spots and further to the seaside and then to another beach and local ruins too. I enjoyed working with M so much and his hospitality is outstanding.A star and long may he continue to be a fine artist and photographer. From his work you will see that he truly does appreciate the feminine form and to work with him is as good as people say it is. A trip of a lifetime, honestly. Thank you Martin.
I worked with and stayed with Martin (and his wife) in his lovely little house in Spain again. 2nd visit in 5 years. As usual Martin was a excellent host and tour guide. He took me to the caves, the silver mine, numerous beaches, museums and churches. His also a very good photographer and a talented artist. I sat for two of his life drawing workshops.
Martin gave me the chance to expand my experience as a life model in one of the nicest possible environments. He and his lovely wife welcomed me and treated me with the utmost courtesy and took me to visit some of the most interesting places around. His studio is small but cosy and the working atmosphere is relaxed and motivational. I encourage all figure drawing models, experienced or not, to take the opportunity of working with him. I'm looking forward to do it again!
Had wonderful day working with Martin sitting for his group in Alicante, thank Jahn for me.
Martin is polite and friendly, really makes you feel comfortable and helps where ever needed.
Thank you for the great drawings, it was really lovely to see your work in the exhibition included the picture of me. Thank you so much, i will most certainly take your advice, hope to work with you again soon.
take care x
This was my first modeling experience abroad. I posed for Martin's life drawing class and I enjoyed it immensely. We also took lots of pictures on the beach which I really like. Martin is a professional photographer and fun to work with. He and his wife let me stay with them for a week. They showed me around the local area and made me feel very welcome.
I highly recommend working with him. I'll definitely come back again. Thanks Martin for a wonderful time. Megan xx
