About

tommymartin-portrait600pxI’m a freelance photographer, originally from London, based in the UK’s Lake District National Park for the last 10 years.

I’m best known for my fine art landscape work, I’m also a commercial photographer, mostly working in outdoor lifestyle, adventure and fashion photography. I’m an expert at shooting in difficult terrain and extreme and changeable weather conditions. I specialise in capturing natural, candid images of real people in amazing places.

I started out as an assistant to a number of inspirational professional photographers in London over 20 years ago. Since then I’ve worked as a photographer, lighting gaffer, director, producer, graphic designer, retoucher, illustrator and, strangely, publican.

In 2004 I moved to the Lake District specifically to pursue my passion for my landscape work. In 2007 the one of my images was selected for inclusion at an exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London. I opened my first solo exhibition of Lake District work in 2008 and between 2010 and 2012 ran my own gallery in Askham, close to Ullswater.
