Profile – Martyn Thomas


Martyn Thomas Photographer

Hi I’m Martyn and I love capturing the bond between a rider and their horse in a more natural setting

Over the past 12 years, I have developed my passion for portrait photography and have continually built on the use of natural and studio lighting, to achieve my own personal style. By investing in training over the years, with other portrait photographers and working with models, families and children, I have been able to continually raise my creative standard.

To specialise in Equine Portrait Photography, I have learnt how to work around and pose horses as well as people. I began by spending time at a local stables to see at close hand whats involved. I continually practise with local riders, so I can perfect this knowledge and understanding, to achieve the photographs I want.

As part of striving for continual improvement and to add a more specialised knowledge, I spent 2, full on days training in the New Forest with Emily Hancock and Hannah Freeland , two of the leading Equine Photographers in the country, who have over 20 years of experience in this field of photography.

Combining all of this, has allowed me to capture the closeness felt between a horse and rider and to portray it in my style of Photography.

I am sure you will like them and get as much enjoyment in seeing and remembering this closeness you have with your horse, as I do in taking them.

Thank you for visiting.
