Martyn Chillmaid would like to thank all those publishers and picture buyers that have commissioned and bought pictures from him. Education seems to be going through another revision and his picture library, covering most subject areas, is targeted at that market. He has had years of experience working closely with the educationalists at all levels of education.

As the market has expanded into electronic media, Martyn has successfully developed his video department and now produces High Definition video up to broadcast quality. If you are in search of advice on whether a subject is best suited to still, time lapse or video photography he is always happy to help.

Due to a botched transfer by his telecommunications provider there was a period last month when his phone line was not operating. Currently he has a temporary number 01527 459751.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.
