Welcome to Earl Martin Photography
Where pictures speak louder than words
Well DON’T JUST SIT THERE, SCROLL DOWN
People describe me as legendary and awesome. I humbly disagree; I just have a very good camera ;-)
Thinking up the idea and bringing it to life is what I do. I’ve always added a pinch of “Earl” to keep things authentic. You won’t find this anywhere else.
I fully believe that the visual appearance of anything I shoot needs to be natural. This is the core of my approach and always leads to the subject looking its best.
I am a visual artist and thrive on photography that needs a creative eye. My core business is people photography but if you have a creative project, I’m up for the challenge.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
I strive to bring a certain air of authenticity to every project I do. With years of experience, I still push myself to always be unique. I believe this is what makes my service different.
With a photography career covering a variety of industries, my work has been seen in more places than I have travelled, with bookings coming in from as far as Belgium. It’s the sophisticated, matured photography your mother told you to look out for.
We have been blessed with amazing talent in our country but I still feel the benchmark for visual creativity is set outside of it. This is precisely why I endeavour to produce world class products along with exceptional service and guidance.
Having professional equipment is essential to producing quality products. I have built a modest collection of photographic equipment over the years and am currently using the industry standard for professional photographers world wide. It is, however, not the camera that makes the shot.
I’m just sending you some fan mail. It’s our second anniversary!! Gosh time flies hey? A big thank you for capturing our special moments and making them a memory of a lifetime. Everytime we look at our wedding photos we smile, as it reminds us of what a fabulous day we had with so many photos to choose from. You did an amazing job and really captured the spirit of the day, even with the terrible wind!!!! We could not have wished for a better photographer to help us remember the happiness of our fantastic wedding day. xoxo
I know I’ve said this a couple of times but once again, thank you soooooo much for everything. You are an
awesome person and it was an absolute pleasure having you as our photographer. Neil and I will always treasure our special day and you have really created wonderful memories for us to look back on.
I’m looking at my wedding pics on DVD for the first time and I’m a bit emotional. Just want to thank you for capturing my special day. You did an awesome job!!! Thank you so much!!
Earl, I am totally speechless, and in complete awe of your work! You did an amazing job with our photographs, I can’t begin to express my thanks at the way you have captured our love for each other and every memorable moment on our
special day, it’s just awesome ! Thank you.
This is my brand. I stand behind it. I guarantee it.
That child would grow up to be a photographer with an over active imagination with superhero tendencies. So let’s run through a few random things about me. Turkish Delights are a problem in my life. I’m heavily addicted to them. I’ve also loved Oros since I was knee high to a grasshopper and I would embarrassingly prefer that over a good glass of wine. Weird, I know! I have recently become a father too, literally, the most adorable little girl in the whole entire world – she takes after her mother
“I was privileged to information and insight that most photographers could only dream of.” I LOVE everything visual! So I adore well shot movies and appreciate everything that goes along with it. My love for photography started in front of the camera when I was a model for my Mom’s designer clothing. She was a part-time seamstress because she needed extra cash to fix her son’s crooked teeth. I started taking photography seriously quite late in life but was extremely lucky to be fast tracked by miraculously been given the opportunity to work alongside one of the best photographers S.A has to offer – Jean-Pierre Uys. I was privileged to information and insight that most photographers could only dream of.
I’ve come to realize that staying true to my own style is key to being authentic and essentially, to being different.“My shooting style is very natural and non-pretentious”. Ironic that following your own path is vital to staying unique in a world where everyone follows everyone else. My shooting style is very natural and non-pretentious. I work very hard on my craft and am proud to call myself a “thinking photographer”. My images all have stories. I’m never the lead character in those stories but I enjoy telling them from my point of view. If you like my style, get in touch and I’ll be happy to capture your story, but let’s have coffee first
My work has been featured in various platforms including digital, print and television. I’m often commissioned to do photography for music labels and have been blessed to see my work travel the world alongside the artist. I am also occasionally involved with projects for the corporate industry and have been commissioned to work with international companies who visit our beautiful country.
