From the moment I could hold a camera in my hand, I was taking pictures. As a kid, I remember every trip I went on, and the most exciting thing for me was getting my disposable cameras. Of course at that time I had no idea what I was doing, but happily snapped away for years. It wasn’t until years later when I realized how expressive photography could be, as well as complex... I started out knowing nothing. I felt as if I saw the world differently through a camera lens, but had no way of getting the exposures I wanted. Frustrated by this, I went to borders and bought a guide to 35mm photography. I remember reading it over and over until I was sick of it. Luckily I picked a book that would give me the insight and the knowledge I needed to perfect my shots.
With the price of film and development so high, it was hard to explore the art of photography as much as I really wanted to. Many over and underexposures and sometimes laughably bad photographs helped me narrow down the proper ways to expose an image.
When digital imaging became somewhat affordable, my supportive parents bought me my first digital cameras. Going digital opened up a whole new world for me. Not only could I take as many pictures as I wanted without paying a penny, but I could explore the art of photography in depth, allowing me to become more skilled in the art.
After 15 years of refining my imagery, I’ve come to this point. There is still a lot for me to learn, but with the massive amount of practice and learning experiences I've gone through, I'm ready to show my photography to the world.
Photography is not a hobby to me, Photography is me.
It's the way I explore and share the world.
MMG2 IMAGES, INC.
Martin M. Gilbert (artistic photographer) and Michael M. Gilbert are the owners of MMG2 Images, Inc.
The goals of the Company are simple:
1) To issue creative and unique photographic art pieces.
2) Small edition sizes - far smaller than other artists which is a great benefit to collectors as smaller edition sizes means that far fewer collectors will own the edition piece.
3) A commitment that each edition, regardless of the sizes offered within such edition, will be limited to that edition size only.
4) As the edition sells and becomes closer to selling out we will “not” increase the price of the edition piece. We believe that our collectors, whether you acquire the first piece or the last, should pay the same amount which is a distinct difference between the MMG2 Images, Inc. pricing and other artistic publishers.
We look forward to working to working with our collector community.
Martin M. Gilbert is a renowned artist (photographer) using his unique ability to see things as others do not and conveys such in his acclaimed works of art.
Martin’s work specializes and presents the beautiful charm and nuisances found throughout various States. Martin’s range is so varied that few artists compare in their variety and demonstrate the artistic skill regardless of the art subject being presented.
Many want to compare Martin to Peter Lik. However Martin believes in smaller edition sizes and reasonable sized pieces and does not have an interest in a floor to ceiling piece of art. Martin’s approach is to have his works represent unique beauty and creativity regardless of the subject matter and to have only a small group own these works while making them available to a wider artistic audience.
Martin welcomes those who wish to follow his continued artistic works to visit the MMG2 Images. Inc. website at viewsfromearth.com.
At this time MMG2Images, Inc. has published for release four different on metal photographic art pieces.
