Martin Neeves Photography & Film

With more than a quarter of a century of experience as a professional photographer, photography is (and always has been) my only source of income. It is not a part-time hobby, unlike a lot of my competitors. Despite the fact that film-making is a newer side of my business, I apply the same high standards to video as I do to my still photography work. I have extensive experience to fall back on, which includes photographing the Yugoslav civil war, the 1990 poll tax riots in Trafalgar square, Princess Diana’s funeral, a week-long corporate hospitality event in Venice for General Motors, a multitude of annual reports for large companies and twice being the sole photographer to photograph Her Majesty the Queen in the music room at Buckingham Palace. I have also won a number of international and national awards, so you are in VERY safe hands with me!

Throughout many years as photojournalist serve me well when I am photographing weddings or corporate events, as my reactions are extremely quick. This is essential for true reportage photography. Also, I am a “people” person. I will be warm and friendly towards your guests and I think that you will find that I am good bloke to have around.

My time as a photojournalist has also equipped me with the experience to know what style of photographs picture editors will actually publish. When I worked as a staff newspaper photographer, I saw a lot of PR photographs being consigned to the bin as (despite the fact they may have been technically OK, i.e. in-focus with correct exposure), they were just of a style that would fit in with that publication. Even worse, they may have just been boring shots. A lot of people have digital cameras which will be technically correct photographs, but it is the eye behind the camera that makes all the difference! I will guarantee that I produce visually interesting photographs which will get published. A lot of what I do these days for my commercial or PR shoots is to make visually interesting photographs out of fairly boring subjects. That is where the skill and the experience truly comes to the fore.

Commercial Photographer Leicestershire:

I use top-of-the-range Nikon professional digital cameras and have back up cameras, lenses and flash units which are ready to hand in case of equipment-failure. I have complete public liability insurance as well as professional indemnity insurance.

A lot of cheaper (and less conscientious) photographers just give all the uncorrected digital files straight to their clients or only do minimal amounts of post-production work on them. I am passionate about quality, so I prefer to provide optimised high-resolution digital files to my clients as this optimisation work is the only way to guarantee that the photos are of the highest professional quality. Optimisation includes sensor-dust re-touching, adjustment of levels, tone curves, colour balance, saturation, perspective, cropping, selective lightening/darkening, as well as captioning, so that each optimised file is like a hand-print. Also, I only shoot in “RAW” file format and then convert to JPEGs after optimisation instead of just shooting straight to JPEG in camera (as only amateurs and less scrupulous photographer do). Shooting in RAW provides much greater colour depth and exposure latitude, again guaranteeing that my clients only receive the best quality possible.
