Jos Kottmann about his book:
“Although my inspiration comes from the more old-school photographers who spend endless nights in the darkroom, I find myself deeply rooted in the digital revolution within photography. This allows me to use any kind of light and colors to achieve the effect I want making my photography ideal for the fashion, music and advertising industries.
My curiosity for photography enveloped when I started to photograph for one of the most well known Dutch music websites, love2party.nl . During this period, I developed such a network within the music industry, which enabled me to make a serie of portraits of international DJ’s like Louie Vega, David Morales, Karizma, Theo Parrish and Osunlade. From that point on I knew I had found my passion; photography. Even though the trigger was my love for good music, my professional work is aimed towards the fashion and advertising industry. In a short period of time I was able to extend my portfolio with clients such as L’Oreal, Quick and Talkies magazine. (The experience gained with such international clients gives me the opportunity the further specialize my work within fashion industry.”
