My name is Timmy Bouwmann. I’m an creative individual who loves to take photos. I also design websites and logos occasionally. I live in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. Which is in a forest rich area called “Veluwe” where I like to walk a lot.
I’ve always been a creative person. As a child I liked to draw, though I don’t do that anymore. I lost interest I suppose. I also started photographing when I was young, with disposable analog cameras. And when I got older I started using digital cameras. Since a few years I photograph with a clear purpose: to express my creativity. To do this I use multiple cameras.
For my digital photography I use my Sony a6000 with a variety of different lenses, even some vintage Minolta lenses. And I use my iPhone too of course. I also like to use analog film that I develop at home, both black & white and color negatives. I photograph these films with my Minolta X-700, with the vintage Minolta lenses that I love so much for my digital photography. And sometimes I use my Mamiya 135 EE rangefinder camera. I also like to go to thrift stores and buy analog cameras to try out, and keep the ones I like for my camera collection.
Besides digital and analog photography I also like to shoot instant photos. For my Polaroid photos I use my Impossible I-1 camera with Polaroid film made by Impossible Project. I also use my Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 to shoot credit card sized instant photos.
My favorite subject to photograph is nature, like flowers and animals. I always love to walk outdoors, looking at bright colored flowers and massive trees. Besides nature I also like to photograph urban scenes. Like modern and historical buildings or trains and train stations.
Lately I’ve been drawn to a more simplistic style. I always liked those minimalistic photos, so I thought “I can do that too!” and so I started trying it out. And I’m quite happy with the results.
