Architecture, Cityscapes, aviation and drone photography.
I’m Martijn Kort (34) a Dutch photographer and airline captain.
Ambassador for ZEISS Netherlands and NiSi Filters.
From a young age I was always looking up at the sky. Being surrounded by hot air balloon pilots in my family, I was submerged in aviation.
With hot air balloon flying you are always on the go at the best times of the day, around sunrise or sunset. The times where the light is at it’s best.
Photography was something which allowed me to capture the beauty of natural light.
When I’m flying at 38.000 feet and the soft light from the sunset or sunrise is present I am able to capture it in a unique way.
Sharing the beauty of nature together with the beauty of aviation, right from the cockpit.
With my architecture (fine-art) photography I’m stepping one step away from reality.
By using long exposure techniques I’m able to capture time passing by in a single frame.
With adding and removing light in my black and white images, I create tension in the frame. Focussing on details that you normally would miss when you walk by. Showcasing the world around us in a different way.
