Martin Sheen Photography | About
My name is Martin Sheen and I am a lifestyle and wedding photographer. I define lifestyle photography as capturing the personality of the subject in either a natural or studio environment. While the emphasis is on natural and comfortable there is also some direction offered to get the most out of the shoot. Of course I also welcome you to bring along your own ideas or any specific type of effects that you would like to achieve. It’s also useful to think about how you intend to use the prints (album, framed or photobook) as this can be used to dictate the style of the shoot. I predominantly use natural light except when I shoot in the studio where I make use of the Bowen’s lighting system.

From cute new-born babies to professional models I have a strong drive and enthusiasm to capture the mood, personality and intent of the photo session. Ultimately for every photo session my main objective is to produce photographs that the client will love. During the session I hope to achieve this in a fun, relaxed and professional environment.

My lifestyle shoots are typically between 2 to 3 hours in length but this can vary depending on requirements and the amount of people. I do not charge for the session but rather give you the option of purchasing the photos that you want. My pricing for purchasing the images is as follows:

10 full resolution images on CD - £100
50 full resolution images on CD - £150

The images purchased will be available in a private online gallery to share with friends and family.

I also offer professional printing of individual images or the creation of albums/photobooks.

Please contact me for the package options.

My Gear
I love collecting camera gear and shoot exclusively with Nikon products. I consider it critical to have the top of the range lenses and cameras in order to obtain the highest quality photos, particularly in poor lighting conditions. I use Nikon D3 and D700 full-frame cameras. My lenses include the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 (also known as the Nikon “Trinity” lens collection). For low light I also make use of a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens.
