As a kid, Martin Tamba alias brownshootta was passionate about animals and wanted to become a wildlife photographer. Now he takes pictures of people instead. But he still brings the same passion to the table which makes him one of the most exciting young photographers in the industry.
He was born in Aachen, Germany and after spending part of his youth in The Gambia, West Africa, he returned to Germany and is now based in Stuttgart.
Martin only uses analog film cameras for his work, a technology that’s making a huge comeback in photography.
He started out as tour photographer for artists like RIN and Bausa. Since then, he has done numerous projects with some of the biggest names in the music and fashion industries.
