Morten Albek

Photographer since 1988 and award-winning for his work as a Danish news photographer and video production as Photographer of the year in 2014 at the Danish Photographers Association.

Working worldwide throughout the years doing documentaries, covering news and sports.

Teaching street photography and portraits at workshops for young photographers to train their skills in seeking the moment and catching the light.

Portraits are almost more about psychology and human understanding than technical skills, but they have to go hand in hand to express the person in front of the camera with respect and adding a history.

Tools. Solely use Leica M and Sony A7 series for my work, but any other brand is taught and used by students at workshops.
