My name is Martin Zurek, 50 years, living with my family in the Allgäu, Bavaria, Germany. Photography was one of my key interests when I was a boy and long before I studied physics at the Technical University of Munich followed by a PhD at Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich. Optics have been my main subject and interest during my entire life. My first landscape pictures were from South Africa in 1982 at the age of 16.

In 2013 I started my professional career in photography focussing on landscape, travel documentation and special client's projects. I love captures taken in difficult and demanding light situations, e.g. into the sun, sunset & sunrise or inside rooms.

My offers to direct customers are files up to 200MP or large format prints on canvas, paper, aluminum or other high quality materials.

For commercial use all my images can be viewed and sourced via

On Special Projects contracted over a period of time, my deliverables are reports & documentations, images in customer requested formats & resolutions. 

The equipment I use is mainly Canon 5dsr or 5d MKIII with the zooms EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM and EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. The Zeiss high quality lenses Otus 1.4/85mm and Distagon T 2.8/15mm are my favorites. Tripods, Lee filters, flashes and other accessories are used.

During my former 20 years of business life I was creating, managing and restructuring several departments in the industrial computing business world wide. I am well familiar with departments of project management, sales, supply chain, logistics, quality management and the high level management of companies. My work brought me around the globe to most continents and I have seen and worked with customers, partners, employees and friends from many different cultures.
