Amsterdam: Peter Bak photography

Peter Bak is a Rotterdam-based portrait, lifestyle and travel photographer. A freelancer for nearly 20 years, Peter educated himself in photography during his late 20s before moving to New York City.

During his time in NYC, Peter had the opportunity to master film photography before moving on to digital. He now works comfortably in both formats.

He has a natural talent for outdoor and location photography and is known for his dramatically lit environment portraits and intriguing travel images. He specialises in creating engaging portraits and documantery, and enjoys making photo reports for travel and lifestyle magazines.

When not shooting professionally, Peter spends his time travelling and working on his personal portrait series. For Peter it is all about people. He prefers to work in a documentary style, enabling him to get closer to a person. Photography to Peter is a way to access these moments, to travel, to meet. "Without these moments they are just pictures," he says.

Clients include Nautique, Rails, Playboy, Elle, Carp, HP de tijd, NRC and M-magazine.
