James Q Martin (aka “Q”) is an adventure photographer whose work has appeared in publications worldwide. Inquisitive, spirited and dedicated to regional and international conservation efforts, Martin has traveled extensively throughout the American Southwest and to more than 30 countries documenting the stories of world-class athletes, artists, conservationists, filmmakers and scientists. By capturing their compassion for special places on film, he hopes to raise awareness for issues facing our communities worldwide, and to unite people taking steps to preserve and protect these places for future generations. Martin did just that in the short film Dear Mr. President (Mountainfilm 2018), , which captures the opinions of children on climate change. He is also the director of Frosty, Mi Mamá, and A Light in the Shadow (all at Mountainfilm 2019), and Bringing it Home (Mountainfilm 2020) which he co-directed with Scott Briscoe.
