Newly formed photo agency SilverHub Media has appointed multi-award winning sports photographer, Bob Martin, as the company’s Director of Photography.
In his role, Bob will oversee photography at SilverHub – shaping how the business shoots its news, entertainment and sports pictures for editorial and media clients, corporate brands and rights-holders.
During a career spanning the last thirty years, beginning at the Allsport agency and then taking in Sports Illustrated, Bob Martin has photographed every major sporting event across the world. His photography has been recognised by over 60 major national and international awards, including British Sports Photographer of the Year three times, and the prestigious World Press Photo award.

SilverHub co-founder, Nick Evans-Lombe, says: “Bob is yet another great addition to our growing team – he knows what works, can second guess issues for rights holders and brands well in advance, and is able to bring clarity and authority to each and every project he touches.”
Bob told PhotoArchiveNews.com: “Since SilverHub launched I’ve been looking to get involved and I’m absolutely delighted now to be part of the team. We have some excellent photographers and talent already here, with a lot more seeking to contribute to SilverHub in some way.”

This was photographed at the World Swimming Championships in Barcelona in 2013 which was sponsored by Nikon. The Synchronised Swimming was held in the main pool most of the backgrounds were ugly. I was really struggling to find a good background to shoot against, the previous day I shot up high against the blue of the pool so I needed to find something different. I noticed a small area of the crowd in the corner was darker than the rest of the Arena. Also the TV commentary lights was picking up the water thrown off the swimmer as they spun. The only angle that worked was lying flat on the deck in the far corner of the pool. I waited for nearly all the routines to finish then the Russians who went on to win came on and that produced this shot! It is the best Synchronised Swimming picture I have ever taken.
