To obtain freelance photography work to create images for a client to satisfy their photo-based visual needs.


Discovering and capturing beauty in the ordinary, finding uncommon perspectives and drawing simplicity out of the complex inspire and fulfill me.

Emet Martinez is a Southern California based photographer specializing in creative imagery using conventional and digital tools. Born and educated in the Philippines, he pursued his artistic passion in photography when he moved to the US in 1990. He uses selective focusing and unusual perspectives to create fresh and compelling images. He has been blessed to show his work at Lauren Taylor Fine Art Gallery in Carmel, City of Brea Gallery, SOKA’s Founder’s Hall Gallery, Santa Ana's Bear Street Gallery, Mission San Juan Capistrano’s Soldiers Barracks Gallery, Chemers Gallery, Coastline College Gallery and the Irvine Fine Arts Center.

As a whole, the entire Impressionist Art movement has been a constant inspiration to Emet for opening his eyes to seeing things in a non literal manner. He admires the subtle simplicity and the lyrical nature of images by Eddie Soloway, Sam Abell and Michael Kenna and the "In the Moment"images of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Saul Leiter.
