About Martin Kaufmann...
I am a Copenhagen based photographer working worldwide within the fields of travel, food, portraits and lifestyle.
When I was 12 I picked up a film camera for the first time and experienced how I could make magic in the darkroom. For a short time I studied art photography but decided to change path, took a marketing degree and worked in the corporate world for several years. Seven years ago I went back to my roots and today I work full time as a photographer.
My clients include a broad range of local and international newspapers, magazines and organizations.
Areas of work
I work broadly within different types and genres of photography. I do this deliberately because it provides me with energy and constant challenges. Below are some of the main areas of work…
Food photography is a substantial part of what I do. I work a lot with magazines, restaurants and food companies. Furthermore I have photographed two cookbooks for Meyers and a Japanese cookbook with the Danish/Japanese chef, Kondo Sasaki.
Clients include: Meyers, Løgismose, Gastro Magazine, Mad & Venner, Life & Thyme, Conde Nast Traveller, Becauseitmatters.dk, Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin, restaurants and more…
Travel photography is one of my true passions. I have travelled and photographed in Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America.
Clients include: Conde Nast Traveller, Life & Thyme, Cereal, Gastro, Danish and European magazines, Newsweek and more.
Portrait and sports photography
I have worked with portraits ever since I began making photos. Working with people capturing emotions, situations and feelings is a great challenge and very rewarding. The last couple of years I have included sport portraits of athletes and instructors.
Clients: Maersk, Meyers, Luxury Aficionados, Novozymes, Life & Thyme, Kurhotel Skodsborg, business magazines and private customers.
Lifestyle & hospitality photography
Lifestyle and hospitality very much combines all the other genres I work with.
