Corporate Photography

 

Martin Searle Solicitors in Brighton  needed some fresh, friendly and professional images to go with their new website. After a meeting with the Directors I had a solid idea of the shots they wanted. I visited the offices being used for the shoot and put together a list of names for the head shots, team shots and one to ones.  My aim was to capture how this friendly business is working for you in an approachable manner.

 

 

I photographed the clients in their corporate office, providing a quick and easy service. This resulted in them saving time and money as they didn’t need to leave the building.

Maytyra Photography covers a variety of corporate photography which can be used for annual reports, PR, marketing materials, brochures and business cards. Working evenings and weekends we fit around your business needs.

Newborn Samuel Issac Martin

I was proud to be asked to photograph newborn Samuel Issac Martin.

At only four weeks his wrinkly skin and expressions were priceless.

It’s so easy to forget how little we all once were.  Babies are so vulnerable, yet I’m still amazed at how quickly they grow and develop. From the first day they enter this world they’re continually changing and gaining their strength. Truly amazing.

“Maytyra took beautiful photographs of my bump, granting us everlasting memories that we look forward to sharing with our little daughter. Her artistic eye captured radiant compositions that reflect her creativity and professionalism. Her talented use of light enhanced the photographs to a magical degree. She dedicated hours to us, coming to our own home, making us feel very relaxed and the result is more than evident in so many of the brilliant photos we now have. Maytyra is an absolute joy to do a photo shoot with; she is exceptional.”

Holga Love

You may look upon this camera as something similar to a child’s plastic toy, yet when you experience the true playfulness of it it does exactly what it says on the tin. It will make you fall in love with photography again.

….A plastic shell which memories are made of.

For me it brought out the playfulness within and stripped those limitations put upon me from studying, magazines and other peoples beliefs in what photography should be.

My Holga reunites me with the reason why I fell in love with photography. I believe that you should only follow something you love, which can then make it all the more painful when you feel like you have lost it.

I personally experienced this after finishing university. It took a two year period without  taking a single shot before  I purchased a Nikon d70 (with a little  influence). My love was reunited. In a similar way the Holga has done this for me. As in life things can get a bit too serious, so much so that you stop seeing and appreciating the beauty and freedom around you.

Now this camera is basic to the point that there is no viewing screen, menus or batteries needed. You use film, wind it on yourself and have a dial at the front where you can choose  the distance of the shot you are shooting. It is up to you how long you make the exposure and multiple exposures can be carried out at ease by not winding the film on and taking another shot.

Special thanks to the friend who bought me this gift.


Some Portraiture Fun!

Recently I have been doing a lot of portraiture work which I have thoroughly enjoyed.  This has been a mixture of commercial work, families and children.  I have been shooting in a variety of places from the studio, beach, fields and peoples houses.  Here is a mini collection of some.

Journeys

Blog-2-My-Journey

A personal self portrait.

I have always been fascinated with reflections, abstraction and a different way to view the world.

In February 2009 we were leaving the port  at Fort Lauderdale, USA, on a turnaround day. I had just finished shooting the new passengers boarding the ship and decided to take a walk out on deck. I loved how you could still make out the skyscrapers in the distance.  I was even more delighted to take a shot where I could incorporate myself in this landscape. Taken on board the Ruby Princess.

There is a big rush on the cruise ships to see the first sail away.  In January 2009 I experienced my first one in Los Angeles, U.S.A on the Sapphire Princess.

I noticed how the sun was casting shadows of the guests over the deck. I chose to shoot at a low angle and expose for the shadows, which created the silhouette of the people and kept the shadows.


Homemade Tattoo

Homemade Tattoo

For six months I have been on a cruise ship which I can only refer to as something out of Big Brother. I experienced some new things and I do think of my time there as an “adventure”.

Despite my intentions to start this blog at the start of my trip, the extremely poor internet connection made it virtually  impossible to put postings together.  My next few posts will be a reflection of my experiences from the first half of the year.

This photograph is of my friend Kartik. Kartik is from Bombay, India and is a Assistant Purser on the Ruby Princess cruise ship. The evening this image was taken Kartik had invited me around to his cabin to photograph the stages of his tattoo being coloured in. I asked him why he chose to have a scorpion tattoo, he replied “it’s for my mother, it’s her star sign”. Kartik doesn’t hide how much he adores his mother, in fact he makes it very obvious how important she is to him.

kartik portrait

The tattoo was undertaken by a gentleman who works as a cook. There are so many jack of all trades on a ship!

It was carried out under no form of pain killers, apart from the odd beer and cigarette.

Kartik and I  arrived on the same day but we didn’t become friends until a month later. We stayed friends throughout my contract, and he was one of the few who helped me cope with the “ship life” I at times struggled to understand.
