He began his career as a cameraman, after being an administrator, in 1989/90 in two university projects by Caroline Link and Martin Enlen, both of which were nominated for the so-called "student oscar".

In the 1990s he made a name for himself in the advertising branch, making television/cinema commercials with well-known directors, such as Niko Karo, joschmid, Caroline Link, Detlef Buck, Philipp Stölzl, Andreas Kayales, Mona El Mansouri and many others. Parallel to his television work, Martin Langer continued his career path as a movie cameraman. In the meantime he has received every important award which the german movie industry has to offer.
