I actually started as a school photographer. My graphic design ideas got the attention of a couple of wedding photographers and I started designing their Coffee Table Books and Digital Albums. From there it was a short distance to wedding photography.
What would you say makes your photography unique?
To be more specific, a 40-foot, two-story villa shaped into the world’s largest elephant. This resort sits on the edge of the Yala Wildlife Sanctuary and effortlessly meshes with its surroundings, contributing to the full Sri Lanka experience.
I've been photographing for years, since the early 80s, when I was taught “wet” photography at college. I've constantly used photography in my personal life, but also in my profession, as a fine artist selling work through the Artzu agency. My artwork was/is very cinematic, and more often than not involved figures in a landscape or urban environments, or simply as the subject in portraiture, and so it was natural to use photography as a creative tool.
This hotel is the ideal representation of its unique surroundings. It rests on the edge of Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. Located in southeast Bolivia near the Andes, Salar de Uyuni is famed for its unobstructed view of the sky and amazingly flat surface of salt.
While airports are usually only a means to an end for the honeymooning couple, Teuge Airport in the city triangle of Deventer, Apeldoorn and Zutphen, is also a destination. With its Airplane Suite, Teuge Airport offers a unique experience perfect for the couple seeking adventure and privacy.
The suite at Teuge is actually a converted Ilyushin 18 airplane, nearly 40 metres long. Once a government plane, later a passenger plane for an East-German airline company, this Ilyushin 18 once maxed out at 120 guests, with a four-person crew staffing the cockpit. Under the ownership of Hotelsuites.nl, it has become a luxury suite which maxes out at two guests.
While the interior of the hotel is nearly matchless in its culmination of Spanish and European arts, it is situated to provide an equally artistic view of Marbella’s landscape. The hotel rests close the shore of Costa del Sol, overlooks vibrant golf courses, and offers (on a clear day) a view of the African coastline.
