From my Mentee – Allen Thomasson LBIPP

Thanks to my Mentee, Allen Thomasson of Timeless Portraiture for this testimonial…
I discovered Martin completely by accident whilst reviewing some business webinars on the Imagefile website. His no nonsense approach to business and photography was refreshing and I thought that is what I need, clear concise advice and critique. So I joined Martins’ Mentoring Programme in April 2015 and can say it is the best thing I have done for my photography and confidence as a photographer. 
With Martin’s support and guidance, I submitted a panel of 5 portraits for the BIPP National Photography Competition in October 2015. In February I attend the awards evening at the BIPP HQ and was chuffed to be awarded joint winner of the Provisional Photographer of the Year 2016. I was also successful in gaining my L’ plates on 3rd March 2016 when my panel of 25 portraits was assessed and awarded my Licentiateship (LBIPP). I really believe that I would not have achieved this without Martin.
Martin is a great teacher; putting you at ease, generous with his knowledge and skills of the craft and encouraging  you to constantly improve and learn. When creating portraits I now hear a voice saying ”Step back. Don’t zoom”, “lighting; Flag it! Vary it!”. 
Do your photography a favour and ask Martin to mentor you and realise your potential. Thank you Martin.
