Martijn Kort - Ambassadeur Transcontinenta BV
NiSi & Peak Design
Martijn specialises in architecture and black and white fine-art photography. Photography started as a hobby, capturing the beauty around us during holidays. Being a perfectionist, a lot of time went to mastering the different techniques. Understanding the tools that we can use to capture our inner vision.
Long exposure photography is one of the techniques Martijn uses the most. Creating an ethereal atmosphere and isolating the subject, enabling him to produce a depth and presence in the objects that would otherwise be impossible.
The main focus however is architecture photography. Creating clean and vibrant images for the clients portfolio.
Since the first kickstarter campaign, there was a connection with the Peak Design brand. Producing gear that is designed with the end user in mind and spending a part of the profit on making the world a little better for the next generations really stood out for me. And of course the products just look awesome!
After buying the first backpack I was convinced that this was brand to keep an eye out for. Soon more products came out that were of good use for the travel photographer that needs to take care of his gear and almost all of those found a place in my bag. I really love good design and that is what Peak Design delivers. They combine a strong urban design with superior quality, while really focusing on the end user.
It was back in 2015 that I first came across the filters of NiSi. I was progressing in my fine-art B/W long exposure techniques and found limits on the filters that I was using. Nisi got in touch with me if I was open to test some filters. This was an instant success for me. The filters gave me what I needed: sharp images, free from color shifts (even with very long exposures), a superb coating to keep the dirt off the filters and no loss in contrast. It was the missing link that really enabled me to capture what I wanted to capture in the quality that I needed. After using the filters for the first time, I never looked back and am very happy to be working with NiSi.
