How It All  Started

 A good old friend of mine told me to do this more than 20 years ago. I didn’t listen to him and I am glad I took this road, it made me a master in photography and digital image manipulation. Back in high school I studied art history and started drawing. After graduating from the school of arts in The Hague I started assisting quite a few different well-known Dutch photographers in different fields of photography. By that time I thought taking pictures was faster than drawing, not knowing what I know now! When I started on my own I made a mixture out of all and worked for 25 years as a commercial photographer. I loved all the jobs I did and still do, love the people I work with and for and I love traveling, meanwhile, I became quite known for what I did. I have shot big production commercial campaigns, worked for high-end Dutch magazines with well-known Dutch Celebrities.

This Is Me

Meanwhile, I was working on my personal artwork. Wich existed in my archive and on my harddisks only. Now it’s time to show who I am and what I like doing most! My aim is to make beautiful art for people who like my style, The art I make is sexy, naughty, highly erotic, and sometimes blunt or provocative. I like being on the edge of what is almost forbidden but always keep a balance between this and make sure the women on the artwork have the highest level of beauty and make them even more attractive as they are.

My Mission

Hopefully, my work will make you happy, curious, and smiling by looking at it. It might even push your own imagination. While the world is cruel I think imagination, erotics, and love for each other can do some healing. Having a piece of my art will definitely spice up your surroundings. Not knowing that this was my goal in life.

Hans petersen visual-artist/Fine-art photographerHans Petersen  –  Visual Artist

Raised in Rotterdam/The Netherlands and started his career some 30 years ago. But the love for photography began earlier. As a small boy, he learned from his grandfather, who was an artist, to look closely at things. His grandfather taught him drawing and Hans studied forms, perspectives, and the basics of photography. When he got his first camera as a present from him the love for creating images had started.

Training

The passion for photography grew and after the Royal Academy of fine arts in the Hague Hans started his professional career. He gained valuable experience from famous Dutch photographers. Think of Dirk Karsten, Jan Francis, Roger Neve and Marcel van de Vlugt. By seeing different talents at work, Hans picked up the best pieces of art.

Technique & Aesthetics

Hans photographs digitally from the first moment which made him a master in Image manipulation. He does have the technical skills that guarantee ultimate pictures, in any form. On paper or on the screen. In addition, he has a keen eye for beauty and detail.

His talent was soon discovered. From his studio in Amsterdam, he traveled all over the world, for clients from the fashion & beauty industry as well as for large advertising agencies. But also for titles like Playboy, FHM, and Maxim.

and www.thedutchcreativegroup.com for other commercial work.)

 Visual Artist

Around 2010 Hans began, next to his commercial assignments, to focus more and more on free work. In his art, he can give free rein to his talent and technical skills. Hans regards the computer as a darkroom for his photography and a painting tool for his art.

Layers & Materials

In his studio, Hans experimented with the rich capabilities of the computer as an artistic medium. He discovered the power of digital work in combination with different materials, finished with high-gloss liquid gloss the artworks of Hans Petersen are constructed as paintings, in several layers. He uses photography, painting, and mixed media. Sometimes he puts the text in to steer the thoughts of the viewer in a certain direction.

Viewer or Voyeur

Last years Hans made a large number of works of art, in which eroticism and beauty are the main inspiration. As a viewer, you get a glimpse into a special world, in a voyeuristic way sometimes provocative but always in balance with beauty, style, and on the right side of the edge.

Hans petersen visual-artist/Fine-art photographer

Hans Petersen

   is well known as one of the leading photographers of Holland. He has earned his reputation for shooting highly styled fashion / glamorous photographs, editorial series, and covers with many beautiful models and Dutch celebrities for twenty years. His images have been published in Playboy, Maxim, Fhm, etc. As an advertising photographer and brand-making photographer, many fashion brands and clothing companies hired him as an expert branding and campaign photographer. But during his career, he never stopped developing his own private artwork. Until recently this only existed in his archive and on his harddisks. All that time the visual artist “Hans” was not seen. Many people asked if they could have a print at their homes. This made him change his career into being an artist. Now you can own the artwork of Hans and it’s being sold in limited editions. Or if you want to, he can make you a private one. So now it’s time to show it to the world.
