With dreams and goals that stretch far beyond her small yet beautiful hometown of Fentange, Luxembourg, Martine Pinnel knew at the early age of 19 that she wasn’t going to settle. Instead she took charge of her life and made the decision to move to America and attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Photography and Fashion quickly became the tools that allowed her to bring her stories and ideas to life. Her accomplishments of winning best portfolio in the Academy of Art University Spring Show 2012, and obtaining an art scholarship from Luxembourg, gave her the confidence to enter the Vogue New Exposure contest, placing her as a top 10 finalist.

After 6 years of living, studying and working in San Francisco, Martine is headed to London to further her photographic career.
