About Ep!c Photos
Erick van Rijswick is my name, shooting EPIC PHOTOS is my game.
In 'normal' life i am a 3d engineer/draftsman, and also a dj/producer.
Life is short, and even while it's short, we still tend to forget certain moments in time and space.
The first photos i made, were taken at the party's that i played, a lot of clubs and gigs from my past vanished in distant memories...
After 2 years of playing around with my Canon camera's, i met my girlfriend (and future wife) Chrissy.
She was a gorgeous subject for my photos for just a short period, but long enough to develop my skills as a model / portrait photographer. After she didn't really want to model anymore, i dug deeper into a different niche:
Urban Exploring and Street Photography.
This led to more insight in photographing buildings, nature, HDR technique, long shutter captures and even my climbing skills improved.
It also changed the way i look at 'old' or 'broken' stuff.
I discovered that there is beauty in everything, and there is nothing on earth that can't be captured in a nice way.
My Urbex work led to all kinds of different shoots, from weddings, to band and artist shoots, and slowly it was leading me to more places then i would ever imagine, my photo's are emerging everywhere and it feels good if i deliver good work to people that ask me to do anything.
Lately i have been doing a lot of familyshoots, events, newborns, and many more.
As a hobby i do a lot of landscape photography and astrophotography, skills i love to use also for my assignments.
I am autodidact, and i learn every day. Every shoot is a new challenge that i love to take...!
I am a professional registered freelance photorapher since mid 2018.
Also i will have a vlog on youtube, doing tutorials and gear reviews.
I am a 100% Fujifilm X photographer, I love the system and i have no need to change brands.
Hopefully one day soon, i will be an official X Photographer.. :)
Feel free to contact me if u feel like u have a new EPIC challenge for me..!
