About Daz Martin Photography

Hi, I'm Darren (Daz) and I've been a keen photographer for many years.. ​ I started out just using an iPhone and uploading my photos to Instagram and then I became hooked (and developed an eye for a good image). ​ I swapped my iPhone for a Fujifilm X10 and there was no going back. ​ I practiced daily, trying new techniques all the time, learning from books, magazines, YouTube videos and eventually did a 10 week course at Ffotogallery, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff. ​ Just before the course at Ffotogallery, I bought my first full frame DSLR, a Canon 5D mk i. ​ I attended various photography workshops - including a street photography workshop in London, sponsored by Panasonic and hosted by Damien Demoulder, previous editor of Amateur Photographer magazine. Plus I did an Astrophotography course in the Brecon Beacons with Alyn Wallace (famous for his Milky Way shots around the world). ​ I upgraded my camera to the 5D mk iii and then spent an absolute fortune on the best lenses and equipment that I could afford. ​ Over the last couple of years, I have attended sporting events. These include biathlons, triathlons, cycling, golf, boxing and running, covering events such as the London Marathon, Cardiff Half Marathon and doing shoots for my local running club. I currently help out and shoot at many charity events, held by the Velindre Cancer Trust and I'm lucky enough to mingle with the various celebrities, who are the patrons of the trust. ​ I've photographed weddings, family portraits, pets, landscape and Astrophotography (hunted for the Northern Lights in Iceland and The Milky Way in the deepest darkest parts of Wales). ​ I am based in Caerphilly, South Wales but I am willing to travel to any location. Please feel free to get in touch with me to discuss your needs. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, Daz

Paula p.'s review on Jul 10, 2019

We were recently lucky enough to use Daz for the second time to take photos of our young son. The images are just stunning, but what adds to the experience is daz's flexibility and his willingness to work around you and produce exactly what you want. We requested outdoor photos taken in the local forestry which Daz was more than happy to do and travel to. He even contacted us during the editing process to ensure we were happy with the updates, before sending us the finished images extremely quickly. Cant wait for the next shoot!

Thanks for your kind review Paula. Yet again, it was a real pleasure to work with little Joseph. He's a handsome little man and was well behaved for the duration of the shoot. Looking forward to the next shoot too :)

Claire H.'s review on Mar 21, 2019

Daz came to our house to capture a family picture of our lovely cockapoo Kali with the dad Fletcher and their 5 puppies. I think this could possibly have been one of the most challenging shoots he’s had to do, as it was almost impossible getting them all in the same place at the same time! However after A LOT of perseverance and a bag full of doggy treats he managed to get the picture I’d been dreaming of; mum and dad either side of a basket full of puppies with a beautiful backdrop. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results and have that wonderful memory to display on my wall forever. ❤️ Thanks Daz x

Andy P.'s review on Mar 18, 2019

We contacted Darren about doing some portraits of our son, we had a rough idea what we wanted and after talking it through with Darren he gave us some guidance on what would work and what would not. On the day of the shoot Darren was on time, professional and made the whole experience brilliant. We ended up with pictures that went beyond what we had initially wanted, they are awesome and capture our son perfectly! I would recommend Darren to anyone brilliant just brilliant.

Bev p.'s review on Mar 15, 2019

I have been blown away by the absolutely beautiful photographs Daz has produced for me. I asked him to take some artistic photographs of ‘Blacky’ my horse. He was professional, and friendly, keen to ensure he understood the type of pictures I wanted. At each stage, from initial communication, meeting myself and ‘Blacky’ through to providing the final edits on a memory stick; I felt he went that extra mile. He clearly loves his work and this resonates in the stunning photos he has created, the results are truly incredible. I’m delighted! Thank you Daz. Highly recommended.

Ah, thank you so much for your review Bev and it was great meeting you and Blacky. I've always been a bit frightened of horses and wanted the best photos I could possibly achieve for you. I think we are both really pleased with the results, considering I was a bit scared of him.

I work discreetly to capture real human emotions that aren’t put on for the camera: from the moment a loving parent christens their newborn, to the sheer joy on the face of your best friend as they turn 21, to the delighted look on the face of a proud father as he walks his beloved daughter down the
