Rob Blanken (1956) is a passionate nature photographer from the Netherlands. Rob has special interest in creative photography and has developed a distinctive style. He calls it NATURE's ART. Birds, insects and abstracts are his main interest. He wants to tell a story with his images and likes to work in projects. 'I want to discover how more or less ordinary subjects can be made visible in a special, in-depth but also artistic way. Making the 'unseen' visible, both for the photographer and the viewer. That's what it's about'. Important parts of this trip are studying the subject, a good portion of imagination and courage and sparring with fellow travellers. Technically, unusual positions, extreme exposures, high magnifications and extremely slow shutter speeds have frequently been used.
Rob lives in the countryside of Friesland, the Netherlands. He used to work as a dermatologist, a profession where good observation is very important.
Rob’s work has been recognized in several photographic competitions.
