Martin Gregus Jr, is the youngest member of the Gregus Creactive Group. Currently, living in Vancouver, Canada Martin was born into a family of artists in Bratislava, Slovakia. Martin is an internationally awarded, multidisciplinary artist with an amazing photographic eye and cleaver creativity. He can see things and stories far beyond the reality of everyday life; a gift which is reflected in his photographs which are full of detail and natural dynamics.

 

The creative transformation of the environment into graphic and colour symbols are some of the elements that give his work endless visual power. Aside from spending hours crawling in mud, custom made photography equipment, hides and remote cameras often help Martin get the perfect shot.

 

Scenarios that take place on the streets are something people rarely see, the interactions between ordinary people, posters and signs all tell a story about the city's life. None of Martin's street photographs are staged that is why they are so real and heartfelt, people can truly see each other in the pictures. From the everyday life and richness of Beverly Hills, to the homeless people of San Francisco;  from the music, food and people of Naples to the business districts of London; from the ancient city of Rome to the vast metropolis of Los Angeles. The tales of people and the city's hidden beauty are captured on camera through a wide array of images.

 

Martin's work has been recognized in some of the world's most prestigious contests. In 2008 at the age of 11, Martin's "White on Blue" image was awarded at the Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition in London UK and again in 2010 when his image "Crane Perfection" was the winner of the 11-14 category. Since 2010 Martin's photographs have been shortlisted and even awarded in many other world renown photography competitions.

 

In 2012 Martin has exhibited his documentary and street photography in Slovakia's most prestigious art gallery; he has given many presentations and speeches about photography in schools and museums, and even led a photography youth camp for the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, Canada. Today  Martin is a a full member of the ICG 699 where he works as a DOP and UAV operator; with over five years experience operating UAV’s in some truly remote and spectacular places across Canada, Europe, and New Zealand his company AviaEye is fully licensed by the Canadian Government to operate anywhere in Canada.

 

Over the years Martin has joined his father in the creation of a variety of projects and companies and together they create a team that is unmatched in the field. Martin and his company MatkoPictures are proud to work along side PhotoFabrica and AviaEye in bringing you the best service possible.
