About

Martin Stampe

Cinematographer and Documentary film maker based in Copenhagen

As long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the language of images and their inherent power to convey feelings, experiences and even ideas. Since 2001 I have been working as a freelance photojournalist gradually shifting towards cinematography and documentary film making since 2010.

Currently most of my assignments are documentary and factual TV-productions for national broadcasters, though I do a wide array of cinematographic work, including motion picture shorts.

In crossing between documentary and fictional projects on a regular basis, I am able to draw benefits from each to the other, so that the fictional work I do lends it self to a stronger feeling of reality, and the documentary work I do becomes more aware of its visual storytelling means.

Please contact me, if you have questions. You’ll find my details at the very bottom.
