My name is Dennis Baljé

Welcome to my website,

 

I'm a freelance photographer, designer and retoucher based in the Netherlands.

It all started about fifteen years ago when I bought my first camera, just a simple Canon SLR.

It was still a camera with film. I had no experience what so ever and I was just shooting like crazy,

taking snapshots of everything.

 

In the beginning this was fun and I made some cool shots, but after a while I started losing interest.

Just because after I send my film-roles to the developer and was waiting for the results I never was able to repeat

a shot, simply because I didn't know how or what I did.

At that time I didn't had the time to follow a class or workshops and You Tube wasn't available yet.

 

About eight years ago I made the switch to digital. That was the moment I fell in love with photography again.

Now I was able to see what I did and learn from the mistakes i made.

 

I followed workshops and watched You Tube were i found hundreds of tutorials and how to ...  videos, I started to improve my skills and found a new love in photography, retouching and design.

 

With software like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom I could finally create images that until than only existed in my mind.

 

So I want to invite you to take a look at my website to see my work. If you have any questions don't hesitate to send them to me by clicking on "contact me" or follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for more daily updates.

 

Hope you enjoy your stay here,

 

Dennis

Here you will find my portfolios, just a selection of some of my best work.

I love all forms of photography, from landscape to portrait, wildlife to fashion and still I’m looking for the thing I love the most.

 

Portrait is my favourite and then especially Head shots.

 

But going on a road trip to shoot landscapes is just a thing I can’t resist doing.

That’s the beauty of photography and life just do what you love to do.

As long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by art en design.  As a kid I was always drawing. but growing up in a world without computers it was just drawing and I struggled to get the ideas inside my head onto paper.

About eight years ago I started working with Paint-shop Pro. That was my first time working on a computer with graphic software and creating art in some form.

 

About three years ago I started working with Photoshop and now I work with the Adobe Creative Cloud. Now it is possible to get the ideas that in the past only existed in my mind on to paper or on to my screen.

With programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema 4D,  After Effects and InDesign the possibilities are endless and are opening a whole new world to me.

 

Still drawing on a daily basis, I started designing different things for companies around Holland. More and more I work on Company logos, brochures, websites or menus for restaurants.

 

The learning curve on those programs is steep but working with them every day becomes easier, more fun and more creative.

 

December 2015 is started working for/with Fotolia / Adobe Stock. Projects i made often ended up on my harddrive to never been shown again. Yes sometimes I posted my projects on my website or social media but that's it. Now my work has a purpose. I’m creating projects to sell and by doing so it made me more creative and more aware of the things i’m creating. Finding out what sells and what trending is creates a goal in designing. Motion graphics and vector illustrations are my  main interest but stock images or video are part of my portfolio too.

Nothing is real in the world of Photoshop. You see it on a daily basis, In magazines, newspapers and photos all around you.

Almost everything you see is retouched or composite and that's what fascinates me.

 

I love to create the unreal or the fantasy of some one who wants to be something that in real life is not possible.

Retouching people is something you need to do with class. Don't over do it, make them look beautiful but not fake.

If they want fake I can do that to and than the fun part starts

of the composite.

 

Make the impossible look real.

 

A composite can take hours or even days to create. But in the end it is all worth it
