How do you approach photography?
I think every photograph (or series of photographs) should tell a story. There should also be some emotion behind them. A photograph is not just a picture of a scene that one has witnessed in the past, but it is something that captures a moment in your life. A moment that, when you look back on it five or ten years later, you will recall all the feelings that were going on inside you at the time, and in the best case scenario, it will even put a smile on your face.
At the same time, I try to combine this approach with the artistic one. I love to create things and it’s definitely an inseparable part of my photographic approach.
Do you fly a drone? Can we order these services from you?
Yes, I do. I'm a registered drone operator, I love aviation and will help you capture whatever you need from the air.
Do you shoot weddings?
I do. Please visit my wedding photography website at martinshootweddings.com for more information.
Do you offer video services, too?
I consider myself more as a photographer, but I’m open also to video work. I can also reach out to my colleagues who are involved in video and we can arrange to work together. Contact me and we can discuss it individually.
Who owns the copyright to the photos once they are delivered?
The copyright owner is the photographer under all circumstances. However, you may use the photographs based on the specifications set out in the Contract of Work, which is part of each collaboration.
In the context of wedding photography, you generally have the freedom to print or share the photographs as you wish (as long as you do so for your own personal purposes).
This situation is very specific to commercial photography. There are bunch of licenses that allow you to use photos in certain places. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about such terms.
What photography gear do you use?
My photography career started with Nikon, then I moved to Panasonic, before finally ending up with Sony. Since 2019, I’m exclusively a Sony user.
MY GEAR LIST:
– 2× Sony A7III (main + backup camera)
– Sigma 24-70 mm f/2.8 (a dream lens but a heavy one)
– Sigma 16-28 mm f/2.8 (used widely for wide-angle shots)
– Samyang 35 mm f/1.4 AF II (wonderful all around prime lens)
– Sony 50 mm f/1.8 (nifty-fifty)
– Samyang 85 mm f/1.4 AF (perfect portrait lens)
– DJI Air 2S (absolutelly wonderful drone, I love it!)
Godox strobes and lights, Peak Design accessories, Moza Aircross 2 gimbal and much more. You can never have enough photography gear :)
