Family Portrait Photographer London of the Year 2018 - GLE

My portrait and headshot photography isn’t really about me. It’s about you, your purpose when you book me, and your experience. I want to understand why you want to put yourself or your clients in front of my camera. Then I aim to exceed your expectations of what a professional portrait photography photoshoot in London can be. So often I hear clients tell me that they aren’t experienced or great subjects and I don’t believe that. Let’s be honest it’s not the most natural thing in the world is it?  To have a portrait or headshot photographer point a camera at you whether here in London or elsewhere. That’s why I take great care to ensure that your London portrait photography photoshoot is the best possible experience. Here are what some of my customers have had to say about working with me. 

"Martin is the best! You get not only pictures but also a lesson on how to take great pictures! Martin makes the whole experience so fun and easy. I highly recommend him to anyone."

"I recently had the privilege to work with Martin Lea. We worked on a project which involved his expertise and fine knowledge of Photography. He is one of the best in his field. His insight is impeccable. He was able to capture the brief as instructed. He is a focused photographer who keeps others at ease .His style is simple yet striking - his work is sharp and attentive- he is articulate. I would be happy to work with him in the future without doubt. I wish him all the very best. Thank you Martin you are a winner."

“Martin knew exactly what I wanted from my 1950’s Retro publicity shoot. He brought along a lovely Make-up artist on the day. He made me feel at ease, the lighting was good and it was an enjoyable couple of hours. The turn around was also very quick in receiving my photos.”
