You have some absolutely exquisite shots. I love your work, it is very good, better than some of the ratings would suggest.

Very good folio

Nigel Lee , July 18, 2007; 08:32 A.M.

Fantastic set of photo's, Martin. However, I am somewhat intrigued as to where you find butterflies, moths, bugs etc that are covered in mist - is it a case of getting up early to catch the morning dew, or am I missing something?

lonewolf1966 man , September 10, 2007; 01:13 A.M.

Love your work! Skilled, beautiful colors! Looking forward to sharing!

Andre Dufour , October 31, 2007; 12:14 P.M.

Fantastic portfolio! We see a lot of very sharp macros around but very few with the kind of artistic beauty that you put in yours! Well done! I'm a fan.

Shayne Middleton , November 29, 2007; 05:56 A.M.


Breathtaking images in here Martin, I will look forward to your future postings. :)

Your work is being stolen

A friend linked to your images on a forum I frequent (yes, he FULLY credited you), but we've now noticed you're being infringed upon, here: http://outdoors.webshots.com/photo/2820623320078687835XvRauS I hope this information is helpful... Billy

Michael VaughAn , February 08, 2008; 01:32 P.M.

WOW! you are the macro king...

Laala Kashef Alghata , February 17, 2008; 01:42 P.M.

Amazing Work

I just wanted to tell you that I think your photography is absolutely astounding and beautiful. I have seen many macro shots, never this stunning and never with this unique twist - how on earth did you get dewdrops on insects? I am perpetually terrified of insects, and yet I found these images alluring and exciting. I hope you either have submitted your work to photography magazines and competitions, or intend to. I don't know if you do this professionally or not, but either way, you have a great talent.

What kind of equipment do you use? Camera, lenses and the like? If you wouldn't mind divulging a couple of your secrets.



Martin Amm , February 18, 2008; 08:36 A.M.

@ laala:

thanks for your comment. to get dewdrops on the insects you have to search for insects early in the morning (best time before sunrise after a cold night). i wouldnt call me a professional photogapher, just a fanatic one ;) i started in 2003 and since this time trying to improve myself, by using such sites like photo.net . my actually equipment includes a Nikon d200 together with a Sigma 180/3.5 Macro, a bellow and several enlarging lenses.

Your photo was stolen

Hi Martin,

I registered just so I could tell you this: One of the members of the NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST that I run on Facebook did a "reverse image search" using Tineye.com of the winning photo from last week's "Abstracts from Nature" theme and it turned out to be your (untitled) image of a dew-covered Red-veined Darter. Obviously I will be removing the stolen photo and banning the cheater from the contest...I guess I'll be doing a "reverse image search" of all winning photos from now. Anyhow, come join us on Facebook if you want...we have fun with the contest. Absolutely BRILLIANT portfolio, by the way. I also specialize in macro insects, etc. ...I'm not quite as brilliant as you, but I have my moments. http://kaneslater.redbubble.com

Wael Atallah , December 11, 2009; 05:18 A.M.

I like your portfolio especially the macro work...

Oksi Bu , March 13, 2010; 04:58 P.M.

Laura Delegal , March 30, 2011; 12:31 A.M.

Stunning portfolio!!! I especially like your butterfly gallery. Regards from Greece.


Siegfried Gust , July 13, 2012; 12:36 P.M.

Wonderful Portfolio

What stands out about your images to me besides to obvious excellent composition and "Ausfuhrung" is the the post processing. You manage to have vivid colors that don't seem over saturated. The colors make for pleasant images that still catch your attention. I hope to one day approach your level of skill in photography.

Robin Phillips , August 17, 2012; 06:20 P.M.


Hi Martin, Beautiful Photos...You are truly gifted! If we would like to have a "poster size" of one or more of your photos to hang in our home, use for a mousepad, put on a cup, etc., how would we go about doing that? Or is that even possible? Do you have a website to purchase items? Thanks, in advance, for your time/response. Hope you have a "photabulous" weekend. Lol ;-) Sincerely, Robin

giuseppe guadagno , March 09, 2013; 01:54 A.M.

It is a real pleasure to walk in your images of the nature. Compliments.

Dennis Barnett , April 11, 2013; 04:20 P.M.

You've got some spectacular images here, Martin. The dragonflies are so good they're scary. And your Iceland shots are beautifully shot and timed. Great work!

Tue Bui , May 29, 2013; 09:12 P.M.

Fantastic portfolio. I like it very much. Best Regard, Tue.

Marek Komar , September 23, 2015; 03:10 P.M.

Hi Martin

I just wanted to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Photo Year.... :)
Best Regards and Happy Holidays

Jim Dockery , May 14, 2016; 08:24 A.M.

Wonderful Work

You have a great portfolio! I love looking through your shots of my old stomping grounds - I was stationed as a teacher (for American students) in Grafenwoehr back in the 80s. I spent a lot of time in the woods too on my way to rock climbs in the area, and took a lot of pictures, but certainly didn't capture the beauty you have. Isn't digital great!
