Bob Jansen

Bob is a 29-year old photographer who got into photography in 2009. After exploring several areas of photography he decided to start specializing in street photography, people and travel.

Currently he holds no formal education in photography and all knowledge is acquired by self study and his 'just do it' mentality. In the near future he is not considering getting into a formal education for photography. For now he will rely on developing his talent by getting out on the streets and shoot.

An important influence on his interest in street photography is the Urban Photo Collective. Directly after buying his first camera he joined this open club which specializes in shooting in urban area's. He advices anyone who wants to get into photography to join a club that specializes on their area of interest. It's a good way to prevent early quitting the new hobby or profession.

In 2008 he co-founded Firmhouse together with Michiel, a company focussed on creating and launching new products for the web. The vision is to create an environment which quickly is able to advance and test new ideas for products. It's an ongoing learning experience which might one day be combined with his passion for photography.
