Translating life's stories through video & photography that speak more than words ever could.
Hey, I'm Martin Tatar. I'm an Experience Designer, Video Creator and Photographer working and living in Austin, Texas. I consider myself a global citizen who has studied, interacted, and worked with people from various cultures throughout the world.
Growing up in an international environment enabled me to see the world from a different perspective: the perspective of new emerging businesses and their use of technology. Consequently, I have become interested in startups and their interconnectedness with different people, technologies, and experiences. Through my travels I have noticed the discontinuity between businesses' digital content and its integration with people. This discontinuity motivated me to become a content creator so that I could better connect businesses with their potential customers.
I specialize in adventure documentary film reels and photographing landscape. Through my work I try to share my unique experiences & design travel experiences for other people. My favorite thing to do is to organize private trips & remote expeditions - reach out if you are interested!

VIDEO AND PHOTO EQUIPMENT
I film the majority of my video with the Sony A7Sii. For photography I use the Sony A7Rii. I use a wide assortment of lenses depending on the occasion that is being captured. My editing work is all done in Premier Pro and Lightroom with the integration of After Effects and Photoshop where needed. I also park a DJI Air in my backpack ;)
