Behind The Lens With Greg Martin, Part One.

Greg Martin worked in the British surf media for 10 years, with a varied career spanning a variety of roles including staff photographer and editor for the now deceased Pitpilot, and of course this fine rag. We’ve mined Gregs archive for some of the best shots and stories, which feature British surfing (and it’s peripheries) in what many would consider to be its hay day, and each week we’ll be brining you 5 of these shot/ story combo’s. More than anything what sets Greg’s work apart for me his is ability to tell stories and in the past few years he’s taken a step back from the surf world, instead opting to tell stories full time as a photojournalist. You can see Greg’s recent work, which is a bit like Humans Of New York, but for the depths of Cornwall on his Facebook page here.
