Hi my name is Gavin Martin and I live and work in the stunning alpine village of Hanmer Springs in the South Island of New Zealand. My photographic career has evolved over several years and I have been very fortunate to have been able to work and play in rural New Zealand. Raised in Christchurch, I shifted into the country as a young adult where I worked in wild animal pest control and had the privilege of working on several farms in some stunning locations before moving to Hanmer Springs several years ago where I became involved in the adventure tourism industry. My choice of careers and location have allowed me to indulge in my passion for photography, particularly nature, wildlife, tourism and landscape photography. I continue to work in tourism but spend as much time as I can behind my camera lens capturing those special moments in time for both myself and my clients.
