My name is Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk I’m a fine art photographer from Holland I painted a lot, like the dutch painters Three and a half years ago I started with photography. I photographed a lot of animals. I did one wedding and that wasn’t a success, then I did a new born shoot, that also wasn’t a success. I kind of thought like, ok, is photography something for me? And then I did a workshop in fine art. That was for me the turning point where everything changed. I’m now working as a full time photographer. What I love about photography it gives you total freedom to create whatever story you want. When I created an image I’m really looking for every piece of the puzzle to fit. It’s a combination of everything, the preparation, finding of elements, finding of crops of the whole story to make it. It’s kind of like a translation of your ideas into a real image that you can share with everyone. That’s the best part that photography brought me My first camera was a DSLR. I really enjoy working with it but I came to a point that I wanted more So I saw that there was something more than I was shooting at that moment. That’s when I decided to make the transition to Medium Format. When I first tried I already knew, ok, this is gonna be my camera. That was the moment that I was ok, now I wanna save everything I earn to buy a camera like that because I really like the details and the softness in shadings and shadows and you can really keep zooming and is so sharp and the option that you can crop if it’s need it that you can even in small details like beautiful hands or something you can crop them and you have like a big size image. Phase One really gets like the 3D, it’s king of the feeling that you really can step into that setting or step in that scene and became one with it. For photographers is really important to let go their insecurities to show the world what they do and just go and create and found your passion.
