My name is Martin Hoerchner, AKA Marty Marzipan, and I've been living in London for a quarter century, being originally from California.
"Why did you move to London?"
"I came for the weather."
"But the weather is horrible."
"I was misinformed."
A while back I did portrait photography when at University in Los Angeles (UCLA), where every other person is an aspiring actor or model. I did headshots and portfolios for students in the Theatre Department. My speciality was what I call "theatrical photography", meaning portraits with flair and style, attention-getting images that jump out of the stack and say "choose me!" I believe my strong point was getting the subject to feel at ease and to relate to the camera in a natural way.
My main focus is "Theatrical Photography": Photographs for actors, models, dancers, fashion designers: headshots, portfolios, Z-Cards. Vogue-style fashion photography. Portraits for nonprofessionals in this theatrical style. Glamour and boudoir photography if you insist!.
Before I can feel fully confident, I need to augment my portfolio with more recent photographs. I need to try new lighting setups and find what works best for the subject and me. I need to find an individual style that will set me apart from other photographers.
I see myself as a seeker of Truth and Beauty. I am a mirror - but I reflect your image as you want to see yourself, not like a glass mirror, cold and hard.
I hope we can work together soon.
