HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! - Martin was fantastic he is very talented the photos are amazing I have heaps of faves out of the shoot I didnt know I was capable of looking the way I did in some of them.
Martin is directional and makes the most out of your best features while being honest as to what works better for you and what doesnt. He is friendly and easy going so I was very comfortable doing some photos I have never done before. Martin also made the areas im not so comfortable with on my body appear slimmer!! I would work with Martin anytime! I am so lucky to have worked with such a talented man. Thanks Martin
