Welcome to David J. Martin Photography.

I know you have many options in choosing a photographer in New York City for your business headshots, personal online dating photos, and everything else in-between. I hope by clicking around on my website, you’ll get a sense of my clean modern style and technical proficiency.  With my 15 years of photo shooting experience comes quality consistency which you won’t always get elsewhere. But, more importantly, I also have years of experience in the travel and tourism industry so I’m comfortable working with people and in turn make the photo shoot an enjoyable experience. I still have the enthusiasm and sincere desire to capture flattering photos of people to help them move ahead in their personal or professional life. It’s a simple as that. All done at a competitive rate.

When I first started with photography, I was working for modeling agencies in NYC; then, I discovered that taking pretty pictures of models wasn’t nearly as rewarding as photographing the everyday person. I enjoy capturing each client’s most beautiful and truest self. For whatever your purpose: actors, performers, therapists, personal trainers, chefs, executives, and everything in-between – I will deliver great photos of you “on a good day”.

If you hate having your picture taken, or if you don’t think you’re photogenic, you’ve come to the right photographer! I’ll help you feel at ease and get shots that really look like you. And believe it or not, we’re going to have fun. Check out my online photographer reviews and testimonials (see snippets below) to read about my past clients’ experiences.

My photography education started at the School of Photography at Orange Coast College in California, then SVA and NYU classes here in Manhattan. I continue to keep current with my shooting style and techniques so that you, the client, will have dynamic photos to use for business or personal use.

Before I became a New York City photographer, I worked in visual merchandising for Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, CA. I now continue to utilize my clothing stylist skills in today’s photo shoots. I’ll consult with you (free of charge) as to what to wear.

My studio, David J Martin Photography, is conveniently located in the center of Midtown Manhattan. Steps away from most every subway line – between Herald Square, Bryant Park, Grand Central, and Penn Station.

I’m also available to travel to your office or home with my portable professional lighting equipment. Contact me and we’ll discuss!
