Ruud Peters, a native of The Netherlands, has been a professional photographer for the past 30 years. His work included portraits, weddings, product displays, and post processing of images.
His central interests now focus on landscapes, nature, and the macro world. The Gallery “de Opsteker” in Amsterdam and the “international photo festival” in Knokke-Heist, Belgium recently presented several of his works.
With the animal portraits his goal is trying to capture the human like character in the animal. Which is always just an interpretation of the photographer and in the eye of the beholder.
He is internationally known for his unique style of photography. Portfolio’s have been published in several magazines, of which the Dutch nature magazine called “Grasduinen” and the Rumanian Photo magazine called “Photo Video Digital” His works emphasize his interest in finding the uncommon in the common by using light, angle, and perspective as his tools. “There is a beautiful scene hidden everywhere,” he says. Peters continues to explore his passion for photography and displays many of his works on his personal Internet website. [Official Website]
