Work with Martin if you need compelling images! We collaborated on the campaign 72 hour in Nature for Visit Sweden, where Martin and the team from IVAR Studios photographed several unique close to nature stays across Sweden – all with their own characteristics. Martin adapted well to our image tonality and together we could tell a visually compelling story that ticked all the boxes of our initial brief. Highly recommended!Lisa Voltaire – Visit Sweden
