Kees Terberg

Kees Terberg writes: "I am Dutch by origin but live in Jersey, Channel Islands. I am in my thirties and am employed in the finance sector. Photography is a passion that I pursue with the sole purpose of pleasing myself. If I can achieve that but also manage to please others with my snapshots, I have succeeded in my goal.  I see myself as a general happy snapper. I love photographing people but my landscapes are the images that tend to sell. My ambitions and work has on occasions been used by local jewellers and shops but I am not a professional photographer. When I am not in the mood for taking pictures, I can just leave my equipment at home and wait for better days. I am registered with http://www.cipictures.com which is a Jersey-based picture agency which specializes in landscapes."
