Martin started his career as a journalist on local newspapers in Nottingham before moving south to take up senior management, communications and marketing roles for conservation organisations, charities and local authorities.
He began taking photographs for fun and then supplied photo libraries at work and elsewhere. Martin's images have been used to illustrate books, leaflets and websites and a number have won competitions. He also uses the pictures to illustrate his own articles and publications.
Martin grew up in the Derbyshire Peak District and now lives in the New Forest, where most of the photos on this site were taken. Thank you for visiting New Forest Pics.
