This month we feature the work of photographer Gregg Martel, a member of the Shoofly Magazine team!
Gregg moved to Bay St. Louis in 2008 for an opportunity at Stennis Space Center, then retired here. He'd been living in a small fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay, Shadyside, Maryland, a place where he was also able to enjoy being near and out on the water.
Gregg's been shooting "since I was a kid," and as a youth, even had a black and white darkroom set up in his folk's house. These days he shoots with both a Cannon and his phone, which he admits "sometimes shoots better than my camera."
The best thing about retirement? The photographer has more time to devote to shooting images.
