Street Photography Amsterdam Michael van Oostende

Born in the Rustenburgerstraat, Amsterdam, The Pijp.Michael van Oostende

Photography is my passion which started in 1986 in a serious way.

I finished school of art named IVKO in 1979.

In 1986 I bought my first dark room, and started taking photo's, developing and printing them, mostly in street photography. During my work as a taxi driver in Amsterdam I could combine work and passion for about 10 years.

In 2000, after disability and an hiatus of a few years, I restarted my passion. I make street photo's, mood pictures and I steal moments from people. Lately I make a lot of street portraits. If it turns out I photographed you, please send a message through the contact form, and I will send you a good picture.

I work with a Canon 5D Mark II and I use the latest version of Adobe Lightroom, to get the most out of it. On this site you will find photo's from 1986 till present. Color is only used since 2000 with the digital camera.
