Martine is trained, qualified, and began her career as an architect before establishing her business as an architectural photographer.
She is fascinated by capturing images that narrate the life and interactions that occur within architecture, producing more of a story or a feel for a project. Originally from Belgium, Martine has relocated her base various times to be able to capture continents in an authentic way.
Martine focuses on documenting various ways in which people create and interact within their built environment.
Her distinctive style incorporates an energetic approach balancing movement and colour together with the use of reductive positioning, creating images that are both simple and visually striking.
