Martin Dorey is a writer, surfer, photographer, presenter, cook and campaigner for the #2MinuteBeachClean. He writes about camping, fun, outdoor food, living the outdoor life and having adventures in his VW camper van and contributes regularly to CampsitedCoast Magazine, Camping Magazine and Motorhome and Motorcaravan Monthly Magazine. Martin’s first book, The Camper Van Cookbook, inspired the BBC TV series One Man and His Camper Van in which Martin cooked and camped his way around the UK. It has now aired all over the world. The follow-up book, The Camper Van Coast, celebrates Martin’s love for coastal living, playing, cooking and eating.

Martin’s third book, The Camper Van Bible, was published in June 2016, and has been described as THE definitive glove-box bible for anyone who owns or ‘would die for’ a camper van.

A writing career came late for Martin after a 12-year stint in the advertising and film industry as an Assistant Director on some of the more famous 90s TV commercials – Guinness, Levis, Gold Blend, Oxo — as well as promos for The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox (among others), a documentary about legendary British cameraman Jack Cardiff and various TV series and film projects.

The #2minutebeachclean campaign has been taking Martin in all kinds of directions of late. From being an idea to inspire others to help clean beaches it has grown into a global campaign with many thousands of followers and posts to Instagram from every continent, including Antarctica. The idea has been used in Ireland and the UK as well as in Israel and Puerto Rico. Martin has spoken about the campaign at the Blue Flag Operators’ Conference in Holland, was invited to speak at TEDx Kiel University and on BBC’s Springwatch.

OK? It's never been more important.

Neat thinking. Great design. New ways of working. Generosity. All the qualities we need to make a difference. There is a lot of great work going on today, however small. It all matters.

This is exciting. When I started the #2minutebeachclean hashtag I figured that if one other person did the same it would double my efforts at least.... FF to 5 years later.... and my book about the #2minutesolution gets translated into German.

Hello! I have updated my webbywotsit. So if anyone wants a signed copy of my new book #taketheslowroad England and Wales....

I was taking a look at my pictures of the Gannet colony on the Skelligs and absolutely shocked by what I found. Look how much fishing net the birds are using for their nests. This is awful. We did this.
Why every #2minutebeachclean matters.

Love seeing this!!! It means it's working. Thank you for all you guys do. brilliant!!!
