Owen Martin

I am a photographer based in Swansea, South Wales. I studied Photojournalism at Swansea Metropolitan university and have had a number of exhibitions of my photographic work. My work looks at various political, cultural and environmental issues. I primarily work with digital cameras and use digital technology to create my images. I push my equipment to its limits in order to create various effects including noise and distortion. I have experience in both film and digital photography and also experience of both traditional and digital darkroom practices. I have completed many event-focused projects, such as sporting events, promotional events, band performances, and wedding photography. I have contributed vital components to art websites and posters, and have experience in the field of advertising photography, studio photography and lighting
