1)Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?
My name is Graham Martin and I am a photographer. My passion for creating beautiful pictures of the male form has become my career and you can see my work on www.menart.co.uk.
2)There are so many photographers out there what makes you different from the rest?
There are many of us taking pictures of beautiful bodies to a very hi standard attracting a wide audience to our art. I am told what sets me apart is I am very easy to work with. Models feel comfortable and uninhibited helping us both to create better photography
3)Tell us all about what you do?
4)Describe your fashion sense?
These days it's very relaxed. For me fashion is about making cloths look good on people in a way that consumers want to buy the product. Be it Primark or Armani my job is to make it look good!
5)What cologne are you wearing as we speak?
6)What are your 4 fashion tips you live by?
Make sure your flies are done up before you leave the house!
Wear clothes that fit!
Hats are cool
Wear what YOU feel comfortable in
7)Who are your 4 best friends you would ride and die for?
There is one person that is on a list of his own my partner after that I don't have a list I would help my friends and family in any way I can
8)When not working what do you enjoy doing?
A rare occasion these days but there is nothing I enjoy more than chilling with Mike my partner, if it’s by a pool in a hot place then even better
9)What makes a good model in front of the camera?
Someone that can look relaxed in any position. Listens to instructions but can add their own flare to the pose. All models should understand the meaning of light and how it affects the end results dramatically. They don’t need a technical knowledge just know where it is and have an ability to use it. Above all else someone that turns up and is on time
10)If you had the chance to visit one place in the world where would that be?
Borneo, ever since school I have been fascinated by the houses built on stilts in Water. These days I would love to photograph them and the surrounding area
11)If you was to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear and why?
I would rather have prime position as photographer taking pictures of the glamorous people walking the carpet. However if you push me for an answer it would be an evening suit by Kenzo with beautiful but subtle embroidery
12)If you had the chance to do a shoot with 3 people of your choice who would they be and why?
I have shot many queens but I would love to shoot the Queen. What amazing publicity that would bring and I would love to have a peek inside her world.
David Beckham, great looks and again amazing publicity
13)What do you think of the Fashion Police News Blog?
Fun, entertaining and informative
14)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
Surely the sex is not the issue the ability is what matters. If a man has the skill then that's cool with me
15)If you was given 3 tickets to attend any 3 events in the UK which 3 would you attend?
The Olympics opening ceremony
An awards ceremony where I am the winner
16)What are a few things men do that makes you really mad?
Not many things make me mas but I can’t stand men who get the hump easily, are aggressive and unkind to other human beings
17)What attracts you to someone?
Eyes, then the rest follows through. Without doubt personality is number one!
18)If we was to be a fly on your bedroom wall what would we be shock to see?
19)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your place what would you prepare?
Probably a bolognaise as it will accompany the wine beautifully
20)How can someone from the other side of the world learn more about you and view your work?
21)What advice do you have for anyone who wants to follow into your footsteps?
Work hard, and only go into this game if you love it through to you bones or you will fall at the first hurdle, and there are many.
22)What music would have you running to the dance floor to shake that booty?
I don’t run these days but a nice bit if trace in the early hours could still get me going, if I was well oiled enough
23)What 3 words best describe you as a person?
24)Any last words for our many blog readers?
Know what you are good at. In the fashion/photographic world you will not succeed if you are just OK. Also there is nothing more miserable than trying to be the best at something you just can’t do. I’m sure you have all watched X Factor, it’s the good ones that win and some should never have started.
25)Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
