Brent A. Martin is a London-based lawyer, photographer, photojournalist and blogger.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, to an English father and Australian mother, his first camera was a Russian-made Zenit 35mm SLR which his grandmother bought him as a birthday gift. Incredibly basic, it taught him the importance of good technical ability when taking photographs. He soon progressed to more advanced cameras and his love of photography grew.
Moving to London in 1996 with two degrees from Melbourne's Monash university under his belt (Economics and Law), Brent first worked in accounting before turning to law. He still currently works in criminal defence in London, and keeps his first love - photography - as a welcome creative distraction to the cut and thrust of the criminal courts.
He lives in north London and his work has been published in the local and national press in the UK and stock image sites.
