Da più di venticinque anni ho la passione per la fotografia.
A 17 anni scattavo le mie prime foto mosse, a volte sfocate e spesso sovra-o-sotto-esposte.
Ho sempre preferito concentrarmi sulle persone. Sarà che il mio primo e grande ispiratore e maestro, mio padre, mi diceva sempre : "Mi piace scattare le foto con 'dentro' la gente, i parenti... Nel tempo rimarranno dei ricordi unici e preziosi.
...E ricordati, dietro ad ogni foto, di scrivere sempre la data."
Nel 1986 lui andò lassù, con gli angeli.
E io, da allora, prima con la sua bellissima Canon FT meccanica (degli anni 70), poi con la mia stupenda Contax, e oggi con le nuove fotocamere digitali, ho continuato a scattare foto, belle e brutte.
Senza mai dimenticare di scrivere dietro ad ognuna, la data.
For over twenty-five years, I have a passion for photography.
I started taking pictures when I was 17 years old, sometimes blurry and often over-or under-exposed.
I have always preferred to focus on people. That will be my first and great inspiration and teacher, my father Mario, always told me:
"I like taking pictures with 'inside' people, parents and friends...
Over time, memories will remain unique and valuable.
... And remember, behind every image, always write the date".
In 1986 he died and went up there, with the angels.
And I, since then, first with its beautiful Canon FT (70s), then with my wonderful Contax, and now with new digital cameras, I continued to take pictures, beautiful and ugly.
Never forget, as my father taught me, to write back to all, the date.

Ken Woodford Photography says:
"Paolo is one of my favorite photographers/contacts here on Flickr. I love the way he uses the light and the poses of his beautiful model. My favorite shots are those of him and his wife in the outdoor settings. The one with his guitar are also on the top of my list.
I thoroughly enjoy looking at his photos and aspire to copy some of the look he accomplishes with his editing. They are top notch!!!
He is truely a nice guy. Why do I say that? The few times we have communicated either here or on Facebook, the way he writes seems to make me feel I have been his best friend for life. That too is an asset that gets transferred to many of his photos.
Thank you and keep up the excellent work! You are truely a blessed artist.

"Paolo is one of the top Photographers on Flickr is you ask me. Th images he takes with equipment that most of us can afford really shows you the skill level of this great Photographer. His work really motivates me to work harder so that I too can develop my voice in the photography world. If anyone tells you that you have to have L series Glass to produce great images, tell them BS and show them the work of a great photography named Paolo Martinez."

"Paolo, your images are quite superb. Wonderful photographs, taken with a subtle adoration and respect for women that is rarely seen.
'Glamourous' is an understatement. Your images are some of the best nude and high heels photographs I have ever seen, capturing femine allure perfectly. It is clear that you love women and you show this in truly beautiful photographs taken with great passion and respect.
Your images are stylish, sensual and atmospheric, elegantly capturing feminine beauty, stunning legs and sumptuous curves. Your photographs show perfectly the essence of woman and celebrate us with style, class and love. Stunning.
Thank you for sharing them with us all."

"Je suis très heureux de laisser ici ce témoignage pour ce couple que je trouve adorable, charmant et attachant.
Je viens ici toujours avec grand plaisir et grand sourire. C'est le rendez-vous de la belle Italie, le goût pour l'esthétique, la beauté et le design.
Des sujets sexy, des clins d'oeil fétichistes, mais toujours avec du bon goût et de la passion.
Je suis un grand fan !
Un grand merci!"

"Paolo's Flickr stream shows that he has an excellent understanding of how to make a good photo.
I also love the amazing things he does with a simple 50mm lens."
