Martin S. Fuentes has had the unique experience of growing up and learning photography in the film days and using that experience to flourish in the digital age. For over 20 years, Martin has been a combat U.S. Navy Photographer. A national and internationally published photojournalist. And now, a content creator for brands and businesses. He specializes in capturing and producing storytelling visual art that consistently exceeds clients expectations.
Martin is sought after in his event photography where his documentary style, professionalism, and visual approach provides a pleasing unique and organic experience. He loves photographing people from real world candids to portraiture. Not oblivious to other forms of photography, Martin is equally adept in food, product, wedding and architectural disciplines.
Photography is now more constant and regularly part of our daily lives. Eventhen, Martin’s passion has only strengthened. He consistently aims to learn and evolve as a visual creative. There is not a day that goes by where he looks at light, shadows, shapes, lines, moments, emotions and doesn’t at the minimum mentally frame a beautiful image.
I love being a freelance photographer. The creative freedom and expression to visually create emotion stimulates my effort and energy to do the best and be the best I can. There is nothing more I want to spend my time doing than photography related.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have documented and completed thousands of photo shoots from photojournalistic spot news, to weddings, to portraits, to food photography, to traveling abroad documenting experiences. I’m a forward thinker so I make sure that each of my shoots are injected with strategic creative planning. My shoots take center stage in my attention to detail and are always a priority.
