Martin Bailey is a nature and wildlife photographer, born and raised in England, though now a Japanese national, based in Tokyo. Fueled by his passion for travel and nature, and a tireless desire to share his knowledge and artistic vision, Martin is a popular international tour and workshops leader, working on all seven continents.
A pioneering Podcaster and blogger, Craft & Vision author, Gura Gear Pro and X-Rite Coloratti member, he inspires and helps photographers from around the world to see and capture the wonders of this awesome planet we call home. With patience and a deep respect for his subjects, it has been said that the he captures the soul of the animals he photographs, and one can smell the air or feel the wind in his sometimes powerful, often ethereal landscapes.
His work has been published by Popular Photography Magazine, X-Rite, Pomegranate, Korean Air, Creation Durable (Paris), Real Music and Light of Consciousness Magazine, among others. He had five pieces in a joint exhibit Viaggiando Immaginando, in Italy in 2005, and his first solo exhibition “The Nature of Japan” was held in Aoyama, Tokyo, in December 2010.
Martin was interviewed by Ibarionex Perello for The Candid Frame podcast, and he was also included in one of “The 30 Most Influential Photographers of The Decade” lists. Scott Bourne put Martin in his Top Ten Photographers to Follow on Twitter list. Scott also kindly interviewed Martin and had him as the guest answerer on Photofocus Podcast Episode #7 and co-host of Episode #25.
In addition to selling fine art prints and licensing his photography for commercial use, Martin is available for commissions, workshops and seminars. Martin is also available for commercial and private portrait work, details of which are available on our Your Portrait Web site.
