About the Photographer

Hi, I’m David J. Martin, photographer. Welcome to my website.

I’ve been photographing professionally in New York City for over 15 years. I specialize in photographing people to help grown their business or help increase their chances on dating apps. No job is too big or too small. From company photography shooting 150+ team members to individual headshots. I bring my experience and attention to detail to everything I do. 

My former careers have been working in the travel industry both as a hotel front desk clerk in Hawaii and as an international flight attendant This has given me the experience of working with people from all walks of life. In another chapter of my life, I worked as a visual merchandiser creating store displays where knowing my lighting and colors schemes come in handy today. Also, s a former clothing stylist, I’m able to let you know what I think you'd look best wearing for the look(s) you're trying to achieve. 

Photographing “everyday people” has become what I'm known for and why my clients spread the word about my photography services. Shooting professional models is something most anyone can do with their camera phone but there’s a special skill-set needed to capture people who aren’t necessarily comfortable in front of the camera. If only I had a dime for every time I’ve heard “I’m not very photogenic”. To which I “you’ve just had the wrong photographer.”  

If you’re looking to get an updated, professional, and approachable headshot, I will feature your strengths and downplay your flaws. If my professional lighting and digital equipment don’t do the trick, then there’s always PhotoShop! The art to photography and enhancing portraits is to do it realistically and subtly. No one wants to get busted for having an over-edited photo. I’ll have you looking the best version of yourself.

Most likely, you’re doing an online search and looking for the right photographer. Look no further, I’m your man! I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. My goal is to help you achieve your goals. Contact David
