Want to know more about pro photographer Sven Martin from our Next Level videos? Learn a bit about him below, plus see some of his work at @svenmartinphoto.
Originally from Cape Town, South Africa. The now Nelson-based NZ pro photographer, Sven initially started shooting as a hobby in the skateboard industry while living in California, but his passion for mountain biking soon saw him travelling to some of the biggest races around the world, including the World Cup and Enduro World Series. In 2008, Sven decided to combine his love of action sports with photography to pursue it full time as a career and hasn’t looked back since. One of the top cycling photographers in the industry, being a professional rider in the past has helped him develop a certain style and edge in his images as he knows the exact shots to get in order to create that emotional connection with the viewer.
