Tommy Martino started taking pictures when he was a sophomore in high school. After spending a semester in the darkroom, he figured why not continue taking pictures and enrolled in every class he could that had photography involved. Martino graduated in 2014 from the University of Montana School of Journalism -- from there his love of telling stories with a camera grew. After interning at the Missoulian during the winter of 2014, he went on to intern and work as a photojournalist at papers in Michigan and Wyoming before rejoining the Missoulian as a staff photographer in the fall of 2015. After four years at the Missoulian Tommy took a new position as a staff photographer at the University of Montana, where he has been since November 2019.
