My name is Quentin Rademaker and photography is my passion, my creative outlet and what i believe is my calling. Photography allows me to express what i’m thinking and feeling in ways that words could never do. When i look back at the relationships that i’ve been able to build in the 11 years that i’ve been in photography business I can’t help but be humbled. My camera truly is an extension of me and i know it all like the back of my hands. I know it’s a bit of a cliche to say this but i absolutely love what i do!
I am based in Amersfoort, The Netherlands – but my camera and passion take me all over the world in the never ending quest to document life as i see it and to tell the “next” story. I’m often asked what inspires me or what keeps me going. That answer changes by the minute. I am inspired by life… by music, by movies I’ve seen, colors, the way people go about their every day lives… i find inspiration all around me.
The best thing about a picture is that it never changes… Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still… A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective
