Martin started out as a photographer, shooting on tour with artists Nick Cave and Ice Cube. These tours led to music videos, and the first 5 years of his career was spent making music videos for artists on labels Polydor, Virgin, V2, BMG, Warners, Chemikal Underground, Domino, Edel, and Creation Records for artists including Arab Strap, The Delgados, Bob Marley, Bellefire, King Creosote and Thirteen:13.
