Martin HanellAbout Martin

Light, or rather the absence of light, is very important for Martin to tell his visual stories. Martins style would best be described as experimental, and he doesn’t necessarily need to make a picture look as it “should”. He is always on the look for something new and different. The crazier ideas the better, is rapidly becoming his motto.

Martin is a nature and wildlife photographer from northern Sweden, and he actually picked up his first camera on an UN service abroad and fell in love with it immediately. So when he later picked up diving it was natural to take the camera with him and expand to underwater photography. Martin likes to keep his knowledge on equipment and software up to date, so if you want to talk about cameras, Lightroom or other "tech-stuff" he is the right person.

Martin started to compete in underwater photography in 2013 and since then there has been a straight road to the top. He has medals in many competitions, including gold and silver in the Swedish Underwater Photography championship and his special interest in macro photography shows well with three gold medals in a row in Swedish Championship.
