Martin Sproul

I have been taking photographs at various levels since I was 14 years of age – that’s a long time. I started with a cheap and fully manual SLR camera which forced me into a steep learning curve to ensure I didn’t waste every roll of film. Yes, film! I used rolls of film at first then progressed onto shooting and developing my own slides following a photography college course. That was me hooked for life. In 1992 I began to explore the new territory of digital photography and have been continually expanding my knowledge ever since.

I have sold several hundred photographs over the years and been honoured to photograph many couples’ weddings as well as being commissioned for commercial and promotional work. A lot of this work has been in conjunction with Tom, and for the past few years we have worked and collaborated on many photographic projects.

For the past 10 years or so, I have been designing and building websites for photographers. For me, this is a natural progression of my knowledge and skill base to the digital photography workflow. A large part of this service has been teaching the photographers how to update and maintain their website without relying on web companies and being burdened by the costs this maintenance service can incur.

I am a qualified instructor and have over 8 year’s experience as an industry trainer, which when coupled with my knowledge, experience and passion for photography, ensures that all our courses are meticulously designed and delivered with enthusiasm. It is always a joy to further people’s knowledge and inspire their photography.
