I am a self taught photographer who has been doing photography since I was a teenager. I use to shoot and develop my own photo's when photography was analogue and I would either use my bathroom or a community dark room to do this. I bought my first digital camera in 2004 and with this came a new opportunity to lean new skills such as digital photo editing. Over the past 16 years I have taught myself how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
My main interest is portrait photography and I have a very small studio close to where I live where I shoot most of my portraits. I have always been interested in Dutch painters especially Rembrandt and this has led me to try to recreate the style of Rembrandt and other Ducht painters in the Golden age of Dutch Art . Like the Dutch masters I like to create a portrait that has depth of colour and a smooth almost inperceptable transition between light and dark. When editing of my portraits I will layer colour and shades of light and dark to create a rich depth of colour and soft transition of light to dark.
