About Photographer

I'm Ramon Stalenhoef, partner and Creative Director Copy & Concept at SSSS & Orchestra an advertising agency in Amsterdam. Besides advertising, I have a strong passion for photography. I've worked with a lot of great and well known photographers, who inspired me to also grab a camera. To see the world through a lens. My heart goes to travel and landscape photography. I love landscapes, thunder, lightning, deserts, people, animals, skies, glaciers, volcanos, aurora boreales, rain forests, urban jungles, lost worlds and other magical places. There's so much amazingness, discovery and inspiration out there. I keep on discovering and learning to shoot that perfect shot. It seems that if you just keep on capturing moments, that time will eventually come. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson said: "Your first 10.000 photographs are your worst."
