Oxford Photographer Kim Martin of Kim Martin Photographic is an award winning, published professional commercial photographer specializing in, corporate portraiture, landscapes and townscapes, architectural work as well as headshots and a wide range of studio work including product shots. The studio also does a lot of portrait and portfolio work.


This Oxford Photographer has been a professional commercial photographer since his early 20's. His love for photography started when helping his Dad in their make shift darkroom, set up in their dining room in Folkestone when he was about 5.


He bought his first camera when he was 18 and when he was 21 he got married and bought a house in Kidlington, Oxford where he set up his own darkroom.


He has owned and worked with most types of camera and camera systems from a Kodak No.1, Studio Plate Cameras, 35mm, 2-1/4 Square through APS and the early Digital to the modern day Digital Camera systems.

He still uses and develops film, but now has the comfort of working in a dry lightroom for most of his work.


The Home Studio is well equipped with Studio Lights,  as most of the equipment is portable, working away from the studio is not a problem.


Kim also teaches Photography and offers One to One training in all aspects of photography individually focused on the needs of each student.

Camera training, whether with a Point and Shoot or the latest DSLR. From composition to getting the basics right.

He also teaches photo editing using Photo Shop, Lightroom and other Digital programmes.
