The American born son of Dutch immigrants, Martin van Hemert has lived most of his life in Utah. After studying music at the University of Utah, Martin made the logical decision of pursuing a career in photography. Involved in architectural, product, and fine art photography, he has consistently been drawn to more labor intensive forms of the art, from baking films in hydrogen for astrophotography, to long exposures and light painting of outdoor scenes on 4×5 sheet films. When he is not shooting and stitching panoramas, he can be found feeding his wife’s horses, growing alfalfa to feed his wife’s horses, and taking long walks on the beach.
