As no stranger to fashion, film and photography, Top International Model, Sam Pegg, was in Vogue Magazine at the age of 13. Sam has modelled for the likes of Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Cacharel, L'Oreal, Emanuel Kahn, Emmanuel Ungaro, Watermen Pens & Mondi.

Jay Alexander took Sam under his wing to teach her the do's & don'ts of runway. New York based Kithe Brewster, stylist to the stars, appointed her to liaise with the Parisian fashion houses, acting as his representative. Additionally, being a life coach, she offers a more wholistic approach to coaching.  Acting roles include acting in the series, Charlie Jade, performing with The Men Behaving Badly stars as well as working with Director Sean Penn and actress Charlize Theron.

Sam is also a film/performance director and has achieved incredible performance results with babies & toddlers. Her short experimental editorial fashion film, "Love Affair", won her a nomination for Best Director at the New York Film Awards 2018. All the models that she has placed with international modelling agencies have been successful in their careers.

Gracing the covers of magazines, globally, Martéz modelled for fashion catalogues, featured in over a hundred commercials and campaigns, working in London, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Spain. During her travels, she attended workshops when not shooting, determinedly honing her craft and picking up tips to share with her peers. She won Miss Port Elizabeth in 1989 and went on to be one of the top 12 finalists of Miss South Africa that same year. Her passion for seeing individuals grow, was fuelled by seeing the hit rate they achieved after attending her modelling and acting workshops. True to her entrepreneurial spirit, she ran a successful child chaperoning business supplying medically trained child minders for film sets. Martéz has always had a passion for acting and growing the industry. She has coached privately and at ACT Cape Town for many years. With her modelling and TV experience and a few films under her belt, it made sense to share what she had learnt over the years.

Martéz holds a gold medal certificate of merit in performance through LAMDA, and has completed many producing, acting and script writing workshops through local and international learning institutions. She has produced a few award-winning short films as well as securing the first interview with the late Dr Marius Barnard, after he took a break from the media for many years. Martéz wrote, produced and directed the short documentary for The Heart of Cape Town Museum.
