Olivier Groot - Ambassador Transcontinenta BV
Samyang, NiSi, Peak Design & Leofoto
Landscape, Fine Art, Product Photography
Olivier is a photographer who challenges himself with a wide variety of subjects. Landscape, fine art, wedding, automotive or product photography, he likes them all. After initially feeling limited during his technical studies, picking up the camera again was a great opportunity to express himself creatively. He can be found hanging out of a boot, racing around a racetrack, or quietly spending his time capturing a flower so perfectly with lots of stacked photos. He keeps on searching for what there is to learn and discover in photography, what will be the next subject?
To get the most out of all the types of photography that Olivier enjoys, the right equipment is very important. High quality brands only enrich this experience, so Olivier is honoured to be able to use a wonderful selection of the brands at Transcontinenta for his photography.
To summarise which brands he uses, and why:
Peak Design. Innovation at its best. The tripods and accessories are of an unprecedented level. They have a unique place in the market that they have developed really indispensable gear for every photographer.
Samyang. As a customer from the very first moment (14mm F2.8 MF) on the first generation A7, Olivier has witnessed the development of Samyang from the brand to what it is today! Fantastic, and creative lens designs with an impressive development track record.
NiSi. All different styles and types of photography require the use of the right filters, and Olivier enjoys using the NiSi filters to get better exposed skies, to use slow shutter speeds or to make a macro stack!
Leofoto. The basis of a good landscape or architecture photo remains a good tripod. After having experienced most brands and price ranges, Olivier ended up with Leofoto. A fantastic balance between stability, weight and design, making every moment of using the Leofoto a pleasure.
