“What used to be canvas, oils and brushes have given way to my pc … and the digital brushes in photoshop.”
Adrian Sommeling, Photographer, Digital Artist, Netherlands
My name is Adrian Sommeling. I am a photographer, digital artist, graphic designer and web developer based in the Netherlands. From 1990 I have been earning my living by working in the advertising industry. In fact, I have worked for many national and international companies as well as for different agencies and governments.
Apart from my passion for creation I love interacting with clients and I think I am very good at this. I deeply believe in teamwork as one of the best means to improve and get any company’s achievements. In my earliest days my focus was on graphic and web design. However, some years afterwards photography, or rather digital art, has become my main aim. What used to be canvas, oils and brushes have given way to my pc or laptop screens and the digital brushes in photoshop.
I do not only work for my clients. In my spare time I do love creating photos out of surreal situations, very often my own son is the main character within the scene through him I disclose my own past and future stories. I also give workshops all around the world and often get the question if my workshops are also available on video. Till now… no, but probably in the future ;).
After a few years I decided to redesign my website. From a pretty static portfolio page I changed it to a more dynamic website. I added a blog, a newsletter and soon also an event agenda and in the future probably more ;).
On my blog I will keep you up to date with behind the scene stories, photos and movies. I will tell you my (our) experience/tests with hardware and other photography related stuff. I am very happy with the new design and specially how well the slider, that you see on the top of the home page, fits with my type of images. Even after a week looking at it I don’t get bored with the 3D effect ;). On regular base I will change the slides.
If you want stay updated with news about workshops, new photos, items etc, please subscribe to my newsletter. I won’t spam you every week, but hope to have enough information to send you at least once a month a newsletter.
Hope you enjoy it!
