Bob Martin Editorial Photo Exhibition Sporting Moment - The Photography of Bob Martin -

I am so proud to be finally having an exhibition of my photography in Tokyo. I have visited Japan many times for many world class events so this is a great achievement for me!

I have spent my life travelling the world covering many different sports it has taken me to 16 Olympic Games, World Cup finals and too many World Championships and major events to remember.
Photography was my hobby at college and became my vocation and career. I am proud to be the official photographer to the Wimbledon Championships for many years and to have worked on the planning and photography of the London and the Rio Olympics.

I try to find the different pictures that sum up the event and the occasion, I love pictures with a twist, picture’s from big events must have “sense of place” a great picture should tell a story.

My career started in the UK working for Allsport Photographic in the early years of the Agency. In 1994 after the Lillehammer Olympics I started to work with the biggest Sports Magazine in world “Sports Illustrated” and went on to become the only Staff Photographer based outside the USA. Today I live in the UK specialising in Sports Photography.
I have won over 60 awards for my photography to include a World Press Photo Award, Sports Photographer of the Year three times in the UK, Sports Picture of the Year in the USA and Sports Photographer of the Year in the USA.

This exhibition is a kind of culmination of my life’s work. I hope it is enjoyable for you.
I would like to give special thanks to all of the many others who helped me with the exhibition.
