My name is Bob Mans, 26 years of age, and a fashion and commercial photographer. Since I was young the idea of capturing a moment that never could exist again was appealing to me. Not just the idea of taking a photograph to be kept forever, but taking the moment that was briefly there. Although it’s the time when my interest in photography started to exist.
When I’ve graduated my mid schools I’ve got my first camera, taking long and random scrawls through the city, going out on trips in the woods and nature, to capture insects, plants and scenery. After a couple of years of walking around, the scenery started to bore me, I could no longer see any challenges in capturing that little bee, or crooked tree. As I am a peoples person, the interest in model photography was awakened, although at that age I found myself to young and and inexperienced to go and ask people to model for me, thus most of the people would be older and wiser. As though I thought. So photography stood still for some years, but it started to itch again, I wanted to pick up that camera again. And so it began and still goes till the present day.
