Walter Martinez, Photographer
Late in the summer of 2014 I walked into a Virginia art gallery that was hosting a one man photographic exhibit. The photographer was a guy named Walter Martinez. I got to talking with him, and told him I'd like to shoot his portrait. He agreed, and we did the shoot in my studio a couple days later. Walter liked the results, and used the this portrait on his social media. A year later he was dead. He was a good man with a sense of humor, a collector of antique cameras, and a more than decent photographer.
