GALLERY - DERK STEEMERS!

I might be a new jack, but I’d like to think I make it more than up by my eagerness to learn and try and experience new things. Although I have only been taking photos for a relatively short period of time, I have been trying to get the most out of it.
I started Daydreamer Magazine, an online skateboard magazine, and I started my ever growing collection of visas and passport stamps. Both of these offer me ample of opportunities to experience and learn new things, but most of all to shoot photos.
Like most I seriously got into photography through skateboarding (as I’d like to take the photos I took as a 6 year old with a pinch of salt). For both activities, skateboarding and photography, I have no proper explanation for why I do it: I just do. It consumes me, it influences the way I see and interpret the world and it is something I, almost compulsively, have to do; and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
