Peter Kemp – Jury at the Camera on TopPhoto Festival – Godfather Digital Art

Peter Kemp … a story telling photographer

Peter Kemp is a freelance photographer living in the Netherlands.
With his photowork he is trying to create story telling pictures with a smile.

Vintage atmospheres
Being born in 1960, the time between 30s to 70s got his interest.
Kemp: ” Vintage allows me to propose some glamorous touches into my works.

I am fond of the light of the Dutch Master painters like Johannes Vermeer.
Another major factor in Kemp’s story telling pictures are his models.
They are good looking, but – above all – they are beautiful people inside. Lots of credits to them …

Careful preparation
The atmosphere into a picture is created in his head long before the actual photo is made.

With just a quick look, I try to create an attractive picture by using scenery and colors. But a deeper and longer look might open the door to other journeys. I like to focus on details. All details are thought of long before my camera clicks . …

Living in a hurry …
Nowadays we are living in the fast lane …
With my photowork, I like to do the opposite. It is like a stopping by, a freeze in time.
Trying to catch and captivate my viewers into ‘my world ‘.
And hopefully people are able to create their own little story …

Kemp has been nominated Hasselblad Masters Finalist 2010 in the categorie Up and Coming.
The Hasselblad Masters Award is the most prestigious awards in the industry.
