“I have never been a very creative person. Painting, drawing or building magnificent sculptures out of scraps just didn’t ‘speak’ to me.
Photography Captured me in a big way. This was my own form of art, a unique expression of what I experienced at that very specific moment. Every shot was my own, from the good ones, to the very bad ones. Photography opened up this new world where I strived to better myself, improve with every shot, envision the next. I have met many new photographers on my journey, and was blown away by the many different genre’s of photography, how every individual has a different approach to each of them, the different emotions each image provokes. The possibilities are endless, I just couldn’t get enough of it!
A photograph captures a moment, each one unique and could never be replayed. I lose myself staring at a photograph, the details we do not notice in real-time, the essence of a person we grasp by one single frame, the world just seems to slow down and we get to appreciate the finer details. With photography I capture memories, events I can reminisce on and a form of artwork where I can express what I feel, what I experience and take who ever views that image on that same journey.
Everyone should do photography, whether it is with a mobile phone or a DSLR camera. The world has much more to offer once we start appreciating the finer details in a frame.”
