About Me

Hi, I'm Marty, I am an experienced hobbyist photographer shooting out of Orange County California.

2023 is a milestone for me this year as a photographer.  It will have been 10 years since I transitioned from primarily shooting landscapes, products, and macro photography to shooting primarily portraits; while trying to incorporate elements of landscape and product photography.

Experienced in shooting beach swimwear, studio and environmental portraits.

Goals for 2023:
Focus on continuing to build my network with models, makeup artists, hair stylists and other creatives
Refine my environmental & beach photography techniques
Work on creating images and videos beyond the typical mobile content creator
Helping models build or update their portfolios
Work on improving my video and story telling skills

(If anyone if is interested in also expanding or updating their portfolio’s along these lines let me know,  always open for Trade Projects - time permitting)




Any damn fool can put on a deal, but it takes genius, faith, and perseverance to create a brand.

-David Ogilvy

Julia Sandrak · Retoucher

Looked at your profile and your work, I really like it and very close.

Perhaps you are often worried about a lot of retouchers and they do their job poorly, they use blur.
I don't use blur in my work and that's why it looks clean and natural.

I could suggest that you do tests in a qualitative example, I think it will be interesting to work together.

I am looking for a long-term cooperation with a person who builds friendships and is happy to be on the same wavelength with you.

HI!You have a great portfolio.I want to offer you the services of a retoucher. I hope we can work together. I can take 1 test photo.

Andrew Helsing · Retoucher

I love your portfolio, it's great! Let me know if you need retouching.

GeanGrey · Model

I had a great time working with you! You are very skilled in lighting, framing and making your models feel comfortable which is so important when creating together. I look forward to perhaps working together again in the future!

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
