OTTO V DUIJN
My name is Otto van Duijn. I'm 19 years old. My passion for photography began at age 8. I got a compact camera from Canon. I mainly was photographing nature and those typical vacation photographs. After a while, my mother decided to buy a new camera, so I got her old Pentax DSLR to up my game to a new photographic level. About three years ago, I started taking photography more seriously and taking pictures of people besides the standard nature photographs. 2,5 years ago, I bought my first Fujifilm camera, an XT10, which started shooting more regularly. For my application to Willem de Koning Academy, I designed some t-shirts with illustrator and let my friends model for me. The photographs can be seen on my website named ''Mammilian Warriors''. My backup plan was the ''Applied photography and Image creation'' at the Fotovakschool in Rotterdam. which is my current study.
