I’m Peter, a 25-year-old photographer and visual designer from the Netherlands. I work full time for a global design agency which gives me a lot of opportunities to travel. It has taken me to Amsterdam, Munich, Australia, New Zealand, Shanghai, Paris and the list goes on. On my travels, I always use every second of spare time to explore the places I’m visiting and making sure that I capture them on my camera and share them on my Instagram (www.instagram.com/peterdijkgraaf)Photography has put the entire world around me in a different perspective. Every detail matters, every tree on the side of the road can be a potential masterpiece, random pedestrian on the streets can form a brilliant scene, when framed right, waking up at 05:00 am to catch the sunset is not a pain but a blessing. Even when I don’t have the camera on me I’m noticing myself paying attention to details in my surrounding, trying to frame things I see around me in a picture.At the moment I live in Munich, right next to the magnificent mountain range, the Alps. This might be one of the reasons that I love landscape photography so much. I love being out in nature in the first place. Combining it with taking the time to freeze the moment around you forever in a picture is something special. You can wake me up any time for an adventure and some wild camping.I’ve got quite a few adventures planned for 2017 and I’m planning to capture it all. Make sure to follow me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/peterdijkgraaf) and Youtube (www.youtube.com/peterdijkgraaf) to stay up to date of my adventures. Any questions about my set-up or tricks are more then welcome!Cheers,Peter Dijkgraaf
