    “I have been a photographer for a number of years now, with a diverse client roster, enduring curiosity for characters, and an aversion to labels.

    Am I a lifestyle photographer? Am I a portrait photographer? Am I a product photographer? Yes. I am game and interested always in telling a story and making an image to match the moment.”

    "Featured in this Spotlight: 'Keep Living the Small Business Dream - Arnold Worldwide for Progressive Insurance'. A shoot so smooth and so fun – was it all a dream?

    Working with Arnold Worldwide to show how Progressive Small Business Insurance gives wings to small business dreams was plainly, as good as it gets. As a small business owner myself, it was natural to concept around that “what if…?” and having the freedom and possibility of acting on your dreams, secure in knowing you are protected as you bring that kernel to life.

    We created dream-like moments for the small business characters to inhabit. We created somewhat surreal elements as a dreamlike nod, and infused the images with the positive and transformational mood of feeling free to live one’s dream. Using color and lighting and the array of post- production tools available, we made images to spark imagination, and touch the fantastic while still pulling viewers in to see themselves as the dreamers.

    We all benefit when we are free to dream and deliver. To be able to capture the concept of wildest dreams in service of uplifting small businesses was a real treat.

    I’m grateful for the partnership with Arnold Worldwide, Progressive Insurance and long-time creative partner Fedde Souverein at Luminous Creative Imaging."

    Cade Martin

    Conceptual photographers

    The only child of a university art professor and freethinker mother, Cade Martin grew up surrounded by shapes and images. His love of art grew out of summer vacations filled with trips to galleries, museums, and art studios. At home, he often found himself around the dinner table with an eclectic cast of characters - sculptors, writers, painters. They paraded through his childhood, shaping his art foundation and forming his appreciation for the candid beauty found in people from all walks of life. Cade’s been chasing characters ever since. He seeks out their stories - told through the architecture of their faces or the costumes they wear - whether he’s on a commercial production or setting up an Avedon-like photo booth at Comic-Con. They are the heroes in his pictures.

    His thirst for capturing adventures took its hold while shooting stills on movie sets and then as a photographer for National Geographic covering the railways in India. And it is that sense of adventure that Cade brings to his productions, elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary with a cinematic touch. It’s not just a picture. He’s committed to the experience, building beautiful environments and, sometimes for his portraits, simply building trust. A talented storyteller, Cade splits his time between the East and West Coasts creating images for editorial, advertising, fashion, and lifestyle clients.

    Advertising photographers

    As a photographer with a deep appreciation for movies who harbors an inner (and probably an outer) nerd, Star Wars for Deutsch LA and Target was a perfect project for Cade Martin. Growing up in an artistic community and in many a movie theater seat fostered a life-long appreciation for characters. These toys were no different. Bringing them to life for Cade meant creating environments for them that would reflect those cinematic influences; everything captured all in camera and with a strong lighting POV. 

    Luckily, everyone was on board with this approach, from the creatives at Deutsch to the clients at Target.  Ultimately a dream job with a dream team. You can read more about it on his Tumblr
