About Sven Martin

Sven grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, but for much of the year resides in the chaos of the World Cup and Enduro World Series race circuits. He spent a decade juggling skateboarding and then downhill racing at a professional level while trying to shoot on the side, but eventually found his limits as an athlete and decided to focus on photography. It was on the World Cup circuit that he made a name for himself as one of the best and most respected photographers in the industry, and he's now worked for a multitude of brands and publications. Sven calls Nelson, New Zealand, home, but when he isn't following the fastest racers in the world he can be usually be found shooting or partaking in some kind of backcountry adventure.
