Martin Hambleton photographer based in Altrincham, has been recognized at the 10th Annual Black and White Spider Awards.

These awards are the leading international platform for honouring excellence in black and white photography. This celebrated event pin points some of the best professional and amateur photographers in the world and honours their finest images with the highest achievements in photography.

Hambleton submitted two photographs of a model at a bridal fashion shoot in the Portrait category.  Just 11 UK photographers were shortlisted.   Almost 8000 entries were received across many countries.

The live online event was a huge hit and over 10,000 fans from across the world watched on to see the industry’s most prestigious event for black and white photography unfold

Hambleton said: “The Black and White Spider Awards, based in Los Angeles and now in their tenth year, are the foremost black and white photography awards in the world and they have awarded two studio portraits I entered as Nominees.  Across 31 categories, only 934 nominees were awarded, and the quality of the work entered is extremely high, so I’m chuffed to have been included in such company.   Not bad, considering that the competition attracted 7,686 entries from 74 countries!

I don’t often enter competitions (I think the last time was a couple of years ago) but when I do, it’s nice to do well. My work, and those of the other nominees and winners are available to view online, and will be published in a digital journal in the New Year”.

 What you need to know about Martin:

I’ve been a professional full-time wedding photographer for over 11 years now, and a photographer for much, much longer.

I’ve worked in all manner of venues, in all four seasons (sometimes on the same day), and always got a result that my clients have loved (read the testimonials if you’d like to know more).

I’m based in the North West, but like to travel to interesting places to shoot weddings.

I’m not cheap, but I would argue that I’m remarkably good value for what you get in return.  After all, I’m providing you with family heirlooms.

I probably provide the best client service out there.  But you’ll have to book me to shoot your wedding to put that one to the test ….
