Martin Rusch was born and raised near Stockholm, Sweden. He studied to be an engineer before a summer trip to Germany changed his path and he began a career in photography. He later moved to Paris without speaking a single word of French. He fell in love with the bohemian lifestyle and, before he knew it, more than a decade had gone by. Martin has now worked in over twenty countries and is fluent in French, German, Swedish, and English. He met his future wife, Lisa, on a job in LA. He took trips back and forth for eleven years before finally relocating to LA permanently. The couple has a baby boy, Odin, born in the summer of 2010, and still keeps a place in Paris for visits.
