Drew Martin has been taking photos for quite some time, but it’s not until the last few years that his images have been taking up more and more space in surf mags and other online surf locales. And for good reason. He’s got a great eye for surf photos and enough passion to fuel his photographic desires for many years to come. Ghetto interviews…..

Ghetto Juice: Tell us how you got involved in shooting photos?
Drew Martin: Around 10 years ago, I found my dad's old AE-1 and began playing around with it, and after a fair share of trial and error, I started reading its manual and taking notes from any and all accessible resources, like the good ole internet, about how to manually take photos with such a camera. 

Ghetto Juice: Just kinda winging it on your own, huh?
Drew Martin: Yeah, just through years of studying, reading, practicing, spending money, and more practicing, I basically majored in photography at home, all while working full time. It wasn’t long after that I started dreaming about working as a photographer.

Ghetto Juice: So this line of work compliments you considering you’ve been a surfer all your life?
Drew Martin: Yeah having been raised in and around the ocean, I've always dreamt of a life that was also based in and around the ocean. I especially liked the aspect of not wearing a suit and tie and not cutting my hair, unless I choose to. 

Ghetto Juice: When did you decide you could take it a little more seriously?
Drew Martin: Within the last few years, I began to believe with everything in me that with enough persistence, passion, and hard work, I could make that life happen for me.  The ocean, photography, and music are my passions, and I can now humbly say that they are also my livelihood. 

Ghetto Juice: At the end of the day, what’s this life all about?
Drew Martin: Work hard, treat people the way you want to be treated, and dream big. 

Ghetto Juice: Can you take us out with one of your favorite quotes?
Drew Martin: "Decide what to be, and go be it." – The Avett Brothers
