Home » About
Martin Bailey is a nature and wildlife photographer based in Tokyo. He’s a pioneering Podcaster and blogger, Craft & Vision author, Arcanum Master, Gura Gear Pro and X-Rite Coloratti member. Fueled by his passion for nature and travel, and a tireless desire to share his knowledge and artistic vision, Martin is a popular international tour and workshop leader, helping photographers from around the world to see and capture the wonders of this awesome planet we call home.
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.
Let’s not rush to ‘arrive’. It’s all about the Journey.
This is a play on words as it is relevant to both our location photography tours and workshops, and a direct message to people that Martin has had the pleasure to teach photography to, either in person, or via our Podcast and eBooks. It isn’t about relaxing and taking your time, but rather about not getting caught up in the need to ‘make it’ as a photographer. Savour and enjoy the process as you would a good journey, and never stop chasing your next big dream.
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 and Top 100 Socially Influential Photographers lists. In addition to selling fine art prints and licensing his photography for commercial use, Martin is available for commissioned assignments, workshops and seminars.
