Hello my friend,
My name is Martin Wolfenden and I am an out and proud photographer. Phew! It’s good to get that off my chest. No more hiding who I really am. Ducking behind hedges and hiding my camera in a giant hat.
Since moving from my native West Yorkshire to the edge of Dartmoor in 2017, I’ve developed a love for the moors and have spent many hours trying to capture them with my camera.
This has not been a easy task. Getting a good picture of Dartmoor can be like catching smoke while kneeling in pony poop and being rained on. It’s not until you learn to look at it as a series of small moors, each with their own atmosphere and stories to tell, that you can even begin to try and capture their beauty.
Then in spring 2022 I laid down my filters and tripod and began to take pictures of humans. As much as I love taking landscape pictures, there is a greater buzz to be found in capturing people and moments in a single image.
Landscape photographs will still appear occasionally but for now I’m working on a couple of exciting photographic projects and have recently released over 80 of my photos in a book, which is pretty much a lucky dip of my favourite images. I hope you will enjoy it.
P.S The ghost of Ansel Adams is furious with me.
