A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!

    1. I just couldn’t resist this haiku when I saw the word Ferry. I have loved them for years, as it’s been music that I have always felt great to return to.

      Glad you like it!

  1. Hell I used to dance across bar tables in platform shoes to Virginia Plain. But we won’t go there. SO many wonderful songs. Some of my favs were actually not hits. They had such range.

    1. LMAO!! I’m sure there are photos somewhere 🙂 Their range and the manner, in which they wove elegance into their melodies, always attracted me the most. And, of course, to be as cool as Bryan Ferry 🙂

  2. Lol…. Sigh some more…I have seen him twice. The first time, he cancelled at the very last minute with the hall full cos he had a throat infection. This was Dundee so there was very nearly a riot. Anyway the crowd I was with went out and behaved very badly. I seem to mind opening what I thought was the loo door and it was in fact a fire escape into the very murky alleyways of the city’s heart
    Anyway he came back a few months later. The he did his Dylanesque tour . That time was also in Dundee where the delightful punters kept going ‘Eh never pyed -paid-tae (To) hear Brehun (Brian) sing f’ing Dynlan, Eh pyed tae hear hum sing f’ing Brehun.’ However he was wonderful both times.

    1. That is incredibly funny, but I imagine it probably was a bit scary as well. Crowds can have interesting dynamics when things are not going the way the want. I can almost hear people yelling at Breh-un to not be singing about some rolling stone 🙂

      Of course with a tour you know what you’re going to get for song choice, but I’d prefer to have the more traditional song choices, as they are so good!

      Have fun!!
