David J. Martin is the real deal. I’m a journalist and actor who was desperately in need of headshots that would represent me and my work in a way that felt honest and natural. David creates an environment in his studio where you can feel free to be yourself and that’s captured through his lens. His work speaks for itself — clear, relaxed, spontaneous, but professional. If you’re looking for a headshot, he’s your guy!

David J. Martin did company head shots for our executives and entire team. We could not be happier with the professional results. In addition, the booking process was effortless and we received our images in a very timely manner.

David is an absolute joy to work with. I was looking for new professional headshots and I could not be more pleased with the results. He was so warm and kind and I immediately felt comfortable when I walked through the door. Throughout our shoot David was attentive to every detail and always made sure that I was looking my best. He provided me with so much great advice and allowed me to showcase my personality in all of my shots. If you are looking for some quality headshots and a great overall experience I would highly recommend going to David.

As a relationship coach, I had very specific requirements for what I wanted my photo to convey. David has made me look professional yet approachable. I have seen inquires for my services increasing since. His rate is among the most reasonable in the city. You can’t go wrong with him! Oh, did I mention that he is really easy-going and made me laughed a lot during the shooting?

David has the ability to take amazing photos. I was very impressed with his skill level and his ability to make me feel comfortable and at ease for more natural shots. He captured many aspects of myself and certainly made me look better than i do in realtime! Thank you, David. Highly recommend!

David did an amazing job - portfolio headshots for my daughter!!! She is getting a lot of work with these photos.

I needed a head shot for an important job interview and David’s website was the only one I found that had a Non-Actor section for people like me. I’m not an actor but David made me comfortable in front of the camera. I never did this before and he made it fun. I now have a flattering photo that makes me look professional.

— Bill R.
I have gotten so many compliments on all of the headshots that David took of me. I’ve used them in more ways than I can count; both professionally and personally. Even as someone in a corporate job, I never realized how indispensable it is to have professional and semi-professional headshots always at the ready, instead of trying and failing to take a presentable picture of myself on a moment’s notice with a digital camera or a cell phone. I’m scheduled to appear in an article in an internal company newsletter and will be using the same headshot as the one on my LinkedIn page. It has given me such peace of mind to have polished, professional photographs of myself that I know will always make me look my best. Thanks David!

Awesome Headshots. After doing a major Google search, I was impressed by his website and rates. I got the four look deal and have other photos that I use for Linkedin, Facebook, Tindr. Well worth it. He’s great to work with. A patient and funny guy.

It’s important to have updated head shots, especially since now a lot of business is conducted via technology. After having my first one done by David J. Martin, I was happy with the results and have continued to use his services. I always get compliments on my head shots and for that I give credit to the photographer.

I have recommended David to a wide range of friends and colleagues - from performers to people in the financial industry. All have been very happy with their photos and with his reasonable rates. You’ll see from his website that he’s very experienced in all types of photography and good at what he does.
— Victoria P.
It is my pleasure to recommend David. He has photographed every event for Avalon since he did our grand opening party. David has done all the location shots for Avalon’s web site as well as the staff headshots. Whenever Avalon is having an event David is the first person I call knowing he will capture the full feeling of whatever type of event is happening. Whether it be a fund raiser or a holiday party, David is the man to capture it.
— Russell B.
David’s skill and reputation as a skilled professional photographer made me chose him from the hundreds—maybe thousands—in New York City. I’ll use him again not only because I was very happy with the results, but also because he made this camera-shy guy feel completely at-ease.
— Court S.
David J. Martin is a great guy, incredibly thorough and detail oriented, and most importantly, very talented in all things photos. He works closely with his (prospective and existing) clients to understand their goals and never settles for anything less than excellent results.
I couldn’t give a higher recommendation for David’s process or final work. David J. Martin Photography, period.
— Tom M.
Needed a quick affordable headshot. I was thrilled with he results and it’s a shot I will be using for years to come.

David has an excellent artistic “eye”. I’ve used him for head shots and multiple events. Never a problem: reliable, proactive and personable
— Elena K.
David is really personable and friendly and has a very good knack of getting people comfortable in their own skin. I was pretty tensed and wound up for the shoot but he managed to bring out some of the best shots i have ever had. My advice keep it simple. tell him what your aim is and let him do his thing. he has a great eye for photography.
— Sam R.
Amazing headshots and joy with whom to work. I’ve used him before and will gladly use David again!
