Hello and welcome to Martin Strivens Photography and thank you for visiting my website. I am sure if you have gotten this far you may know a few bits about me already? So let me start with the official bits. Awards and accolades.
I have been very blessed over my career to have won a number of awards including being the current title holder of the Photographer Of The Year award. It is always a thrill when your work is received well by your peers and industry experts but this year I reached the pinnacle of my success and something that has has taken me a lifetime to achieve. Gaining my Fellowship qualification in Creative Portraiture with The Master Photographers has been the icing on the cake in terms of industry accolade and recognition. It is the hardest qualification to achieve and with the most scrutinising of associations. I am the most proud and overjoyed with this accomplishment over any of the others. You can see just some of the awards I have won at the bottom of this page.
Aside from entering awards, I have been a full time photographer for 30 years specialising in three specific areas. Commercial photography is a favourite (I won Commercial Photographer Of The Year 2018) as is Portrait photography (I got my Fellowship qualification in this), and Weddings. Weddings for me remain a pleasure and a privilege. I count myself very lucky to do such a wonderful job.
In addition to this, as a Fellow of The Master Photographers, I give up my free time to mentor other up and coming photographers to achieve new heights. This includes judging the monthly wedding critique as well as helping others gain their photography qualifications up to Fellowship standard. I also offer training workshops to photographers wishing to learn, flash, studio photography and natural light techniques available to all levels.
If there is anything else you would like to know about me or the services I offer then please do get in touch and I will to me best to help you. I hope that you will be considering me for your next project, or your big day.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Just perfect. Martin photographed our wedding earlier this year, he is super professional and friendly at the same time. The images he produced have blown us (and everyone else who has seen them) away, all of our pics feel like they are straight out of a magazine! We have also used Martin for various portraits from family ones to selfish ones of just me :-). Every single time we have used Martin and shared the photos my Facebook and Instagram have gone wild. I really couldn’t recommend Martin enough.

Martin has been a fantastic mentor to me. So encouraging and enthusiastic about his craft and mine. My photography has improved enormously since enlisting Martins help and joining his portrait course. I would encourage anyone wishing to bring their photography to the next level to speak to him. Suitable for advanced and beginner photographers.Mandy Newby, Customer
