‘PHOTO NOIR’ PORTRAITURE
‘Photo Noir’ creation fee is only £100. This allows for a session of 1 hour and
includes the production of your preview show. At this show, there is no minimum order so
you can order as many, or as few, as you wish of your favorite images. Whatever you do order,
Kenneth is regarded as one of the finest portrait photographers in Europe. He holds many
distinctions which include ‘UK Portrait, Pet and Wedding Photographer of the Year’ and
he was the first photographer in Scotland to be awarded the ultimate distinction – ‘
The Kodak Gold Award for Excellence in Portrait Photography’. Since opening his first
studio in 1985, a Kenneth Martin original became widely regarded as a must have home
accessory. Since then he has captured for posterity over 15,000 family portraits. These
portraits have now become treasured family heirlooms and are regarded by his many
satisfied clients as unique and personal works of art.

‘Photo Noir’ portraiture is conducted in the clients own home., a single light and a
black background is all that is needed to produce these striking timeless works of art. The
images speak about emotion, depth and absolute simplicity. Smiles are not the order of the
day, serious studies work best in this style of portraiture. Kenneth is one of the very few portrait
photographers practicing today that can supply you with more than just a family portrait, he
can offer you the opportunity to posses your very own personal work of art.

The ‘Photo Noir’ session is always planned with complete simplicity in mind. Clothing is kept
dark to maximise the impact of the image. The idea is for the faces to be the main
feature of the portrait so a low key effect is employed. This is the most emotional style of
portraiture and as such is always presented in Fine Art Black and White.
The ‘Photo Noir’ collection beautifully captures those moments we never want to lose.

all our ‘Photo Noir’ images are printed in classic Black and White and presented in the most
beautiful thick black moulding and frosted acrylic mount. This presentation combines the
classic look of Fine Art presentation with a more contemporary twist.

Our Photo Noir range is small and has been designed to enhance this classical style of image.
We offer 2 sizes of Desk Standing portraits and 4 Wall Hanging sizes. Please note that we do
not sell loose prints or give away images on disk to preview at home.

If you wish to purchase the full session on disk, including Print Ready Tiff files and
small JPEG’s, the cost is only £1500.

The Session
A 1 hour session and the creation of your preview show to view and select your favorites.
We ask that you and your family wear black or dark clothing for our ‘Photo Noir’ portraits,
true low key images work best when there are no distractions from the face therefore keep
your clothing choices simple. Please do not wear patterns or logos. It is also worth noting
that ‘Photo Noir’ images are almost exclusively half length or head shots. This is because
we are looking to the face as the focal point of the images. After your session we will make
an appointment for you to view your images in our Gallery. At this preview show you may order
as many or as few pictures as you wish. Please make sure that all parties involved in the
decision making are in attendance at this viewing. Please allow between 1 to 2 hours for
viewing your images.
