NiSi, Think Tank & partner van Gitzo
Landscape, Wildlife, Nature, Toerism, Travel
Martin van Lokven was born in 1963. After a successful start in his career as a biologist - ecotoxicologist - he chose his passion, a future as a photographer. He enjoys photographing landscapes, nature, wildlife, travel, food, tourism, and lifestyle. Soon big brands are among his clients. His main assignments are in the Netherlands. But assignments also take him all over the world, from New Zealand and Australia to Africa, Central and North America, Antarctica, and the Galapagos. By now, he has taken care of the photography for some 30 books. In addition to photography, he also edits images and writes texts for his publications.
Martin loves to share his passion for photography with others and has been leading trips around the world since 2002 and workshops in the Netherlands since 2008. With his photography, he especially wants to show how beautiful our planet is and hopes to contribute to the protection and preservation of all that beauty.
Working is so much more fun with the best brands. That is why I choose ease of use, quality, and durability. I have been working with Nikon and Gitzo for 35 years and recently I have chosen NiSi filters and Think Tank bags. Proud of all these brands!
Which camera gear do I use?
My NiSi gear consists of the NiSi filter holders V7 and Switch, with soft GND 3 stops, medium GND 3 and 4 stops, hard GND 2 stops, reverse GND 3 stops, ND 3 and 6 stops, and true colour CPL filters.
I carry my gear with the MindShift Firstlight 40L, ThinkTank Retrospective 7 V2.0, and ThinkTank Retrospective 30 V2.0.
Once started with an aluminum Gitzo tripod, I have been using a carbon tripod, with an RRS ball head, for years.
