Jean Pierre Saint-Martin came from a manual work background .He worked as a roofer, landscaper, gas engineer all things to earn a living. When he was made redundant from his last job he realized his dream. From the age of nine he always wanted to be a film maker /photographer (always had a cine camera close by) and after long contemplation ,decided to follow that dream. He began last October, committing full time to his work and in that short period, he has had numerous commissions (including a double page spread printed in Canon eos magazine on the subject of light painting). And this July will be holding an exhibition of work with Plantation Productions in Govan.
