Martin began his career in Photojournalism, shooting national news events, features, and sports for Canberra Times, then moving to London to work at Reuters News Agency as a Stringer and Sub-Editor ending up eventually as a freelance photographer in the UK.
After a hiatus of over 15 years, spent building the front, back, and middle of almost every type of web and intranet service you care to name, Martin returned to photography to find the tools had changed dramatically. His eye for the striking image, however, had not altered.
In the last several years Martin has been photographing and promoting Canberra through various initiatives with the ACT Government along with commissioned work from many long-term clients including: The National Capital Authority, Canberra Convention Bureau, The National Convention Center, The Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Getty Images, AAP, Nike, Uber, NBA, Molonglo Group, LendLease, Woodford Folk Festival , News Limited
