Hi, my name is Martin and I’m the person behind Nifty Photo!

I’ve always been interested in photography since I was a little kid playing around with my dad’s photo kit and learning the very basics of film photography. Over the past ten years I’ve been involved in all sorts of projects and my style and approach to photography has changed to what you see today. I treat every job with the upmost importance and really enjoy delivering quality work that gets people talking and sharing.

53 Degrees, Preston

My early ventures into photography included live music and promotional type work for bands across the North West of England and I’ve had images published in NME, Kerrang & Metal Hammer to name a few. I’ve even been lucky enough to shoot live photos of bands including Paramore, Twin Atlantic, Ash and Idlewild in the photo pit at gigs and festivals.

Some of my landscape work has been snapped up by marketing agencies and production companies in New York. This included an image used as a huge backdrop in a broadway show featuring David Hyde Pierce (Frasier) and another enormous wall sized print in two NYC Time Warner Cable stores.


Finally, I pride myself on being approachable and honest so if you want any further info or have any questions then please get in touch by emailing or filling in the contact form below.

I’m based in Chorley, Lancashire – but regularly travel across the North West and beyond
