Clemens Vanderwerf, wildlife and nature photographer.
I have always had an interest in nature and photography. As a teenager I played around with my first serious camera, an Olympus OM 2, and went on bike trips to capture the beautiful natural environment, the historic mansions and treelined roads in the neighborhood I grew up in south of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. When I got back home, I developed the films myself and spent hours in a darkened room to create some decent black and white prints. Where did that time go?
In 2010 I got back into the game which now turned completely digital. My challenge is to combine my creative eye and the digital technique of photography to create a pleasing image capture. A technically correct exposure is by no means equal to an image capture that is worthwhile to hang on a wall, or leave a constant urge to look at it again. Once you have created an image that draws your attention, you know you met the challenge, and hit the jackpot.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I deeply care about our natural environment and resources, which are at an increasing risk of decline due to human intervention, over-population and climate change. I believe that by sharing the beauty of nature and wildlife through my images I can create awareness for the changes that happen in our natural environment. Climate change, rising sea levels and loss of habitat for many species are issues we all need to face now, and act upon. Preserving the natural habitat areas that we still have is crucial to involve the next generation. I believe that awareness inspires!
