David Martinez is a professional photographer and filmmaker, for whom photography is both a calculated science and a free verse art form. The controllable variables – the light, the shutter speed, the aperture – are all simply tools to allow the authenticity of a real moment to occur. David captures the beauty and sincerity of these scenes in the pictures he makes. Always at the forefront of technology (but still with a roll of medium format film in his camera bag), David has been shooting high definition video since DSLR technology made it more available. David is always ready for an adventure – with his surf bag packed and camera in hand.


The original Baja bike?  Paul d’Orléans thinks it’s the Honda CL72, the bike that set off a wave of Baja races after Dave Ekins set a record from Tijuana to La Paz in just shy of 40hours.  After Dave, the deluge, and the Baja 1000 was created.  Filmmaker David Martinez follows Paul around the desert roads of Los Cabos as he rides his 1964 CL72 Scrambler, and talks about the original Baja Scrambler.
