some personal notesMy name is Gerrit de Vries. I studied graphic arts at the academy of Arts "De Vrije Academie Psychopolis" in The Hague and I'm a passionated photographer. I'm special interested in and inspired by graphic artists like Rembrandt, Marius Bauer and special by one artist in my own region: Riekele Prins. It is the way how they apply light in their work and their vision. I believe that the use of light is elemental for a good picture. In any way is it my startingpoint.
Since February 2009 I work with a professional camera, a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a Canon F4 L 17-40 mm.
A super strong combination for landscape photography.
I' m very much influenced in the way how some members of "de Ploeg" like Jannes de Vries were inspired by the Groninger landscape.
Fine Dutch landscape photography
