Why risk? Why put yourself out there? Why take a chance and show your hand? Why risk the chance of being hurt? Well if you don’t take a risk once in a while, you cannot take a step towards what you are meant to do. The FEAR of not taking a risk is a prison, and it traps us, causes us to grow stale, and stifles the creativity inside of us from coming out.Continue Reading
For so long the term being a ”Creative” has been monopolized by a group of people trying to separate themselves from the cultural ”norms.” Unfortunately this has alienated a LARGE portion of people that don’t identify with sleeping in crappy apartments, living off of food stamps, and complaining about the government… Now people say “I’m not creative at all!” just because an IMAGE of a “creative” caught on. I want to help break open the idea that EVERYONE is creative, and we all NEED to express it, as the inverse can destroy us!Continue Reading

Recently I returned from another voyage into the world, apart from Canada where I spend most of my days, to the Land of Guatemala! A new twist accompanied me this trip as my wife was able to come along, the fist time we have traveled together! This was my third trek to the greenest place I have ever seen, and it did not disappoint! On today’s episode of INSIDE the LENS I take you along to Guatemala as well!Continue Reading
Well I apologize for the tardiness of the April Photos of the Month post! BUT in my defense a lot has gone on on over the last number of weeks! The launching of INSIDE the LENS was probably the most time consuming, and while I am on that you can check out the YouTube channel for that RIGHT HERE. I also made a trip to Guatemala, there will be more on that later 😉 Now on with the April Photos of the MONTH!Continue Reading
Another episode of INSIDE the LENS is here! On today’s show I talk about creating a Culture vs building a following. It makes me cringe when I find people that treat their followers as mindless sheep, flogging them with endless “e-books” which keep people just out of reach of being great! I NEED to create a culture!!Continue Reading
Inside the lens is launched!
Well time to bring this up a notch, I have created a show called INSIDE the LENS with JESSE MARTINEAU (that’s me)! I decided that I have had enough of photographers selling their “Techniques” or “presets” or worst of all “Knowledge”. Giving people just a taste to keep them coming back for more, while bleeding them for any penny they can grab. Sounds like a joke to me, so instead of just ranting about it, I am going to do something about it! I am giving away what I know, FOR FREE!Continue Reading
How to spend a Sunday Afternoon in Northern Alberta. Twenty One Pilots.
Well when I received a somewhat ”frantic” phone call from my friend Jared this last Sunday afternoon to make a Twenty One Pilots parody video, my initial thought was “Wow I rather just lay here on the couch…” But 10 minutes later when Jared showed up on my doorstep, any plan I had of talking him out of making this video was washed away. You see Jared showed up completely in costume, shorts over spandex, reflectors taped onto said shorts, red toque, and of course the black hands/black neck… How could I say no? That and Jared can sell pretty much any idea, to any one person, at any given moment…Continue Reading
The March photos of the month took me to Jasper National Park!
One of the best months to date, the March photos of 2016 have been some of my best work, not to mention most popular. The threshold is being crossed I feel, so many people have reached out to like, comment, and direct message me. Company’s are starting to take notice as well and I am entering into some exciting new opportunities! Thanks for hanging around everyone, this is about to get much bigger!Continue Reading

This last trip I took at the beginning of March 2016, has produced some of my best night shots to date! Continue Reading
Well, you have heard it said a thousand times “That’s what friends are for!”
If we made a poll of everyone with a friend, and we asked them what friends are for, we would get a few different answers… My question is are we really interested in true friends? Most of the “memes” I see spread across countless Facebook feeds talk about how a friend is pretty much our little person that tells me how awesome I am, 24-7… These memes are quickly followed by a “Haters gonna Hate” post stating that anyone that disagree with them is not a true friend… I want to talk about what I believe TRUE friends are for.Continue Reading
