Harry began his career in broadcasting as a news photographer, shooting 16 mm film and then some of the first video tape in the TV news industry. He continues to follow his passion for photography today, self- publishing more than a half dozen travel photography books: (Kenya, The Galapagos, Italy, Greece, and London).
Harry's newest project, "Harry Martin Underwater" combines his unique skills of street photography and love of underwater photography into a new genre, Underwater Glam & Fashion. As a pre-med student, Harry graduated from Albright College with a degree in psychology and biology. He is a recipient of the college's Distinguished Alumni Award.
Throughout his 40 year career in broadcasting, he has covered every presidential race since Jimmy Carter. (While C.I.A. director, George H.W. Bush once told Harry that he would never run for President of the United States.)
With his love of politics, Harry was particularly excited to cover several Democratic and Republican National political conventions. He reported on then-Senator Barack Obama's stepping into the national spotlight in Boston in 2004, and reported on Obama's nomination in the Presidential campaigns of 2008 and 2012.
Harry covered other major world news events such as the launch of the first Space Shuttle, Challenger, the bombing of the World Trade Center and the September 11th attack on the Twin Towers in New York. As a former weatherman, Harry was always called upon to cover hurricanes: his most memorable experience was his 13-hour non-stop anchoring stint during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
His hosting and writing of two follow-up specials on the recovery have won critical acclaim. As an avid musician and former music teacher, Harry has composed music for the off- Broadway play, Deceptions. He also co-produced Gavin DeGraw's first CD, "LIVE at Wilson's". A long time, self-confessed computer geek, Harry runs his own company, "Martin-Software," which specializes in building web sites and optimizing clients' social media footprints on the web. He also provides media training for select Fortune 500 clients, Miss Universe, and Miss Teen Universe
