About me Martin Hill – International Wedding Photographer
A passion for photography
I was born in North Devon in a decade where free love was a new concept and United were the 1st English team to win the European cup. As a kid I loved all things sport in fact any sport that kept me out of the classroom, ironic that I met and married a school teacher. I spent the early part of my working life serving with the Royal Marines in various spots around the globe. On leaving the services, life was a scary place! I put my supervisory and organisational skills to good use by joining the NHS as a manager. However, at the same time I began to develop my passion for photography and wanted to be the go to Photographer in Somerset but didn’t really expect to become an international wedding photographer. Finally I took the ultimate plunge and started shooting wedding photography, converting a much-loved hobby into a career. During my now 11 year career I’ve had the privilege to work alongside some of the best photographers in the world and don’t regret a single day.
With all my life experiences I guess I’m a pretty chilled out individual, who without wanting to gloat, has the best job in the world.
I guess like most people I’m nothing without the guys in the pictures above. I’m a very lucky man to have a fantastic wife in Katie and three wonderful children who I am so proud of. Head of the children is Millie who will always be daddies little girl. Ollie who thinks I resemble a chip, plenty of fat on the outside and Freddie who with out doubt is going to be our rugby player.
A clients perspective
It is often said that the way Martin makes you feel is very comfortable, relaxed, as if being photographed by an old friend. It may especially be this skill, which has helped Martin create some outstanding wedding photography during his career. During Martin’s 11 year career he has won multiple industry awards, something he is reluctant to boast about, but proud non the less. Martin has not only become a very sort after wedding photographer in Somerset but also as an International wedding photographer.
Away from his passion for photography, Martin loves spending time with his family and in particular wife Katie and his three Children Millie, Ollie & Freddie. When he has the chance Martin really enjoys watching my beloved Somerset play cricket, an activity which may now have been somewhat curtailed by having 3 children.
