Vik Martin

My work isn't concerned with the illusive blinding flash of celebrity or the perfect image we are told we should aspire to. There is immense beauty in the ordinary. Our loved ones, our homes, our cherished objects, the things we pin our identities to. They exist in the real world and are brighter and lovelier than anything we could ever invent.

In my 10 years as a photographer I have worked with artists, performers, community groups, families and individuals documenting events and lives, producing images that celebrate. I am focussed on people. Not only on their outward appearance but on the inner qualities that emerge as part of their interaction with their surroundings, with me and with the camera. We are all heroes.

Grew from my roots in performance photography and my personal documentary portrait projects. I offer editorial style portraits for families, individuals and performers, business and PR images that stand out from the crowd and reportage style coverage of weddings, parties, performances and all kinds of events.

Sessions are informal, friendly and people focussed, clients' creative input is welcomed, and the end results are colourful and lively.

I also offer web page and logo design. Have a look round this site or click here for another example
