Is this close enough for you?

Things they say ...
"I've worked with Martin.." says Andy Loynes, of Pure PR
" .. for - gulp! - over 20 years and found that he consistently delivers first class,
creative photography which is readily picked up by local, regional, national and trade media.
He works quickly and professionally, understanding the frequent need in a fast-paced
multi-media world for a swift turnaround.
An excellent practitioner."
"Martin was always able to take the one everyone else wished was on their roll of film"
Andrew de Rosa, Former Chief Executive Officer at ABTT
(Association of British Theatre Technicans)
Cheers guys, and I'll even forgive Andrew the 'film' analogy!
