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, Q has since traveled extensively throughout the American Southwest and to more than 30 countries documenting the stories of world-class athletes, artists, conservationists, filmmakers and scientists who inspire him. 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 has done just that in the short film Dear Mr. President (Mountainfilm 2018), which captures children's opinions on climate change. He is also the director of Frosty, Mi Mamá and A Light in the Shadow (all at Mountainfilm 2019).
