My Bio Martin has been an Amateur Wildlife Photographer and full time Nature lover for over 20 years.

He has spent many hours walking the trails in South Burnaby near the Fraser River and a chance encounter with a family of coyotes from a municipal golf course has made the coyote his favourite.
"I think it's the eye contact, whenever I photograph a coyote there is always a moment before or after the shutter is pressed where your eyes meet which is always a magical moment to me. Of course the coyote is probably thinking it's just him in my way, again."
