Oundle School

"I have worked with Martyn for over 5 years, both at Cheltenham College and now at Oundle School. Martyn is, without a doubt, my 'go to' person for professional photography. Not only are his photos strikingly vivid in terms of colour and composition, but his manor with both pupils and staff in the school environment is exceptional. He is calm, professional and unflappable - and above all, he always manages to achieve shots that look both unstaged and intensely engaging. I would recommend his services without a shadow of a doubt."

Rachel Vicary, Director of Marketing and External Relations at Oundle School.

Chandlings School, Oxford

"All of us enjoyed working with Martyn, he was popular with both staff and children alike. He put the children at their ease so they appear relaxed in his photographs, and he captured the spirit of Chandlings perfectly. We have already used some of his photographs in the Oxford Times, and look forward to making use of them in a number of other marketing ventures, as well as our new school prospectus."

Anna Poole, Registrar/ Marketing Manager

The Crescent School, Rugby

"Martyn went about his work quietly, efficiently and with the minimum amount of disruption to the children's learning. The resulting photographs had that essential 'wow' factor that we were looking for; we couldn't be more pleased."

RH Marshall, Headmaster

Denstone College, Staffordshire

"Martyn and I have worked together on the last two school prospectus projects for Denstone. He has always given us what we required and produced the most incredibly natural photographs of our pupils. As an added bonus, once given a brief, he needs no,(or very little) art direction. Working with Martyn is a complete pleasure, and I have no hesitation whatsoever, in recommending him to other schools."

Tracy Wedgwood, Marketing Manager

Kingsley School, Bideford

"He's fast. I don't know how he managed to get round so many classes in one morning. But he did. He has a way with children. They were aware of his presence, but continued acting naturally during the photography. He's a very good photographer. I'm delighted with the quality and range of shots Martyn supplied for our Prospectus: we were spoilt for choice."

Tony Bodinetz, Promotions Officer

MCC Design, Oxfordshire

"Martyn intuitively knows how to achieve the best pictures time after time - he sees what many photographers fail to see, he has great rapport with pupils so they are not self conscious and he's a lot of fun to be with. We have worked on a great many schools together and I really wouldn't use anyone else out of choice!"

Rod Craig

Nottingham High School

"Nottingham High School has worked with Martyn on several occasions. Not only is his photography superb, but he is extremely skilled at understanding our requirements and getting the very best out of our students. It is a pleasure to work with Martyn and I would have not hesitation in recommending him to other schools."

Judy Brown, Marketing Manager

QEH School, Bristol

"It has been a sheer pleasure working with Martyn. He is both focussed and adaptable, taking exquisite pictures. He was really able to capture the essence of the school, allowing us to portray life at the school sensitively and meaningfully, both in our brochures and on the website. I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending him for the first-class quality of his work and for his ability to respond to a demanding brief."

Andrew Alewis-Barned, Director of Marketing

RS Designs, Taunton

"Don't be fooled by Martyn's relaxed demeanour - he's the consummate professional and produces stylish, evocative shots every time. He's great company too and owns some extraordinary shirts!"

Shaun Mears, Account Director

Radley College

"We were delighted with Martyn's work. He listened to and understood our requirements very quickly, taking a wonderful variety of photographs that captured the spirit of the school. His photography was inventive yet simple and he had an excellent manner both with teachers and children that bought out the best in everyone."

Vanessa Hammond, Registrar

St Hugh's School, Oxfordshire

"Martyn's photographs are rarely posed. He clearly has a great rapport with the children and they seem oblivious to his lens. We believe at St Hugh's that our strongest marketing tool is the happiness, enthusiasm and energy of our pupils. Martyn has captured this in his wonderfully natural photographs, which have contributed enormously to the success of our prospectus."

Suzy Robinson, Registrar / Development Manager

St Mary's, Calne

"Martyn is a pleasure to work with. He is flexible in his working arrangements and didn't mind when our scheduling was a little less than ideal! His photographs are beautiful and have made a huge difference to all our publications and our website. We couldn't recommend him highly enough."

Cari Depla, Head of Marketing and External Relations

Stockport Grammar Junior School

"The character of the school was beautifully conveyed. We were struck with the luminosity of the images."

Larry Fairclough, Headmaster

Stowe School, Buckinghamshire

"Martyn's photography has enabled us to capture the real essence of Stowe."

Jane Collins, Marketing and Admissions Manager
