Hello, my name is Richard Janssen and I live in the North of the Netherlands near the city of Groningen.
I am a semi-professional fine-art portrait photographer. That just means that photography is not my prime source of income. Other than that, I am as professional as I can be about my photography.
I mostly shoot fine-art personal character portrait and sometimes concerts. I love my portraits simple and pure capturing the essence, the character of the person in front of my camera. That's also the reason I love shooting real people and rather dislike shooting 'models'.
The way I see it, a good picture tells a story and that is exactly the sort of images I am trying to capture.
