Over a career spanning 25 years, cinematographer and Canon Ambassador Martin Christ has traversed the globe, garnering accolades from Der Deutscher Fernsehpreis, the Panda Awards and the Blue Ocean Film Festival, among others. He has worked on everything from high-end TV commercials for leading car manufacturers and goods suppliers to behind-the-scenes documentaries, his passion for discovery adding the fuel to his creative fire.
"I like to travel, meet new people and discover new worlds," says Martin. "My profession has taken me to all continents. I've met new people everywhere and I want to continue this physical, but also spiritual journey. I have accompanied tea pickers in Vietnam and eaten with them in the poorest huts; filmed in the slums of Mumbai [for Dabbawala – The Lunchbox Miracle], but also in the noblest lofts in Manhattan. Even after all these years, it's always exciting to see the images condensed on TV or on the big screen."
