Martin was a nationally recognized photographer who opened his first studio, The Station House Studio and Gallery, in the late 70’s in Rothesay. In the late 80’s he established Photography Flewwelling on its notable Prince William Street location. He found beauty in everything and everyone and was able to share his unique vision and perspective of life through his camera.

He worked and played life to the fullest and imbued all he touched with his energy and principles. In recent years he loved travelling with his beloved wife, Cynthia.
