Photographer Andreas Hemb
Who am I?
Since 1998 when I spent a year in the beautiful Scottish landscapes I’ve been hooked in the wonderful world of photography. My photography interest have over the years evolved in to a small side business and acts as a perfect artistic compliment to the analytical nature of my day job.
Going through many styles I’ve been drawn more and more into wildlife and bird photography. To slowly become one with nature so that you can share and observe the subjects life without disturbing them is a wonderful feeling. I get rewarded with so much more than just the images I take with me! This style of photography can to some extent also be applied to my other main area of photography, lifestyle portraits.
An image can contain so much more than just a reflection of our surroundings. I strive to get passed the documentary aspect of photography, an image should provide feelings! In my images I hope to be able to project the beauty of the nature that surrounds us and the living friends we share our world with. To get the observer to become one with the seen and get them to share the feeling I felt while experiencing these moments of magic in person. This is what categorize a truly successful image!
Enough about me and my thoughts around photography, please look around and enjoy!
