On November 22nd last year Martin Stembridge Photography was named as the winner of our Creative award, a well-deserved accolade for the Ramsbottom-based photographer.
But what made Martin's business shine that little bit brighter and secure the win? Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and Martin's pictures are a perfect reflection of his passion for photography.
Martin is a member of the Master Photographers Association and The British Institute of Professional Photographers, as well as being the winner of another prestigious award - Wedding Reportage Photographer of the Year.
Martin's business started life 12 years ago, primarily offering wedding and portrait photography. He is renowned for his relaxed style of photography, perfectly capturing all those little moments that are so important to you. A look through Martin's online gallery tells you everything you need to know - this is a photographer who will take the time to create images you will treasure for many years to come.
Another aspect of Martin's business that has really taken off is Google business photos. He is one of only a handful of photographers in the UK to be qualified as a Google Trusted Photographer and take part in the Google business photos project. Google business photos allows online visitors to take a 360 degree virtual tour of a business - before they've even stepped through the door.
Once again, huge congratulations to Martin on his award and here's hoping 2014 proves to be another successful year for a fantastic local photographer!
