Martin Rak

Award-winning landscape photographer in constant pursuit of light and fog.

Photo tour that makes my heart skip a beat

“I can’t say enough about Martin. Anyone that has seen his images knows that he is an amazing artist. But more importantly to me, he is also an excellent teacher. He is incredibly patient and uses simple language to communicate complex technical points in a very understandable way. One of his great gifts is his eye for composition. Starting to understand how he sees the world through a lens is invaluable. What really made my experience so amazing is the fact that he is a genuine, humble person who is fun to be around. I have participated in many photography workshops over the years and my experience with Martin was the best by far.”
