Martin Smit was born and raised in the city of Groningen in the Netherlands. He always felt a deep connection with nature, wich has grown in recent years. When he is surrounded by nature, it makes him feel free and happy. He continues to be surprised with nature’s beauty, it’s diversity and complexity. Whether it’s birds, wild animals, flora and fauna, beautiful landscapes, or small insects, nature fascinate and inspires him. Photography is a learning process for Martin, he tries to improve his skills and techniques, to become a better photographer.
