Poor, miserable, nomads, deserters or persecuted.
Men who stood outside the system without discriminating any national flag.
Always attracted by the spirit of adventure, by the defense of their own principles or by the simple search for freedom.

After all…
piracy was reached out by necessity, 
rarely by vocation. 



my name is Jose Maria Martinez and I am phtographer, expert producer in fashion campaigns, advertising, underwater, surf and international branding.




Jose Martian is a play on words with my name, Jose Maria Martinez.

It projects the hellenistic philosophy that inspired ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, also reflecting my lifestyle.

Martian means Martian in English, a play on words with my hometown, Murcia. Martians are very different from humans and come from planet Mars. Mars is the God of war, passion and bravery for the Romans.

Roman Gladiators were athletes invulnerable to fear. They fought for their FREEDOM in exchange for their life, their honor and their blood in the arena. 

To get out of the system, the pirates also abandoned everything, in exchange for their love for the OCEAN and FREEDOM.
