The story behind Ivan Martinez Photography as it appeared in Elevate AZ magazine

As a photographer it is rare when I am the one appearing on the images of the story. Usually, I am the one behind the scenes creating the photographs.  The summer issue of Elevate AZ ( a magazine produced by National Bank of Arizona) featured an interview that was done by Julia Strublic. Julia did a very nice job in summarizing my story. It talks about how I got started in photography and how eventually it became a business. It has been 10 years since I started Ivan Martinez Photography. It has been a great ride with many challenges along the way. It has not been easy; but it has been a very rewarding experience.  I hope you find the article interesting.

Photo of me was taken by one of my GCU students Gillian Rea.
