My name is Dick Boot, a designer, photographer, musician and creative born in 1968 in Alphen a/d Rijn in the Netherlands. I grew up in Zeeland in the south of the country and always lived nearby the seas somehow. I find it kind of comforting to live nearby water somehow.
I allways have been creative somehow. Drawing, graphics design, making music and now photography, webdesign and image retouching. I love to create images with all the digital tools available. Like digital cameras, computers, 3D software and image retouching software like Photoshop.
I started with photography in 2011. Before that time i made the usual snapshots but never serious photography. I then bought a DSLR camera and started to do some studio photography. And more and more the artistical freedom grabbed me.
Every picture tells a story.
I don’t really see myself as a traditional photographer but more as a ‘photography based artist’ I love to create images that surprise people, amaze them, make them angry, make them think, make them wonder…. or touch them. I love to loose myself in the concept-fase of an image, create or gather all the props i need. Trying to figure out how to get to the result. The photography, the image manipulation, i really enjoy all the different stages of the creation of an image.
And then, finally…..when all the ingredients come together, when the cake is out of the oven and the result is delicious…that’s fantastic! That asks for more….every time!
What i love…
Wostok Lemonade, strong espresso, heavy rain, fresh mowed grass, Apple, beautiful design, Nikon, vegetarian food, snow, Scandinavië, vinyl records
…and really hate
When i can’t find my keys, meddling, uneven number of socks, reading, sport, when i run out of coffee, loud people, chaos, big crowds, movie spoilers.
