Thea Martin was born in Mexico City and moved to the United States as a young child. Thea has been around the arts all of her life and around photography since she was three years old when her father handed her a Polaroid camera. From there, her father taught her how to roll film, process the negatives and print her own prints. She spent a considerable amount of time in the high school and college dark rooms playing with different printing methods.
She loves to travel and feels it is natural to take her photo gear with her. Thea loves to shoot landscape, wildlife, night and street photography; however, if it is interesting she captures its. She loves chasing light and finding the extra-ordinary in the ordinary.
