Dan Martensen’s fashion and portrait photographs have an aesthetic of natural beauty. Often photographing on location and in rural environments, Martensen’s relaxed and collaborative approach creates images of genuine ease and spontaneity. Martensen studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design and brings the qualities of an observational photographer—finding meaning within the scenarios that unfold in front of his camera—to his commercial work. With his clear talent for framing the experience of his encounters with his subjects, Martensen is a regular editorial contributor to magazines including i-D, Self Service, Vogue Paris, British Vogue, The Last Magazine, WSJ, and German Vogue. His commercial clients include Ralph Lauren, Mango, Zara, Esprit, H&M, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, and Mugler.
