Tjerk Veltman


Dutch-Indonesian photographer Tjerk Veltman’s work consists of natural, intimate portrait and lifestyle images that capture a sense of stillness. After finishing his Bachelor of Law, he first started photographing during a trip in South-America. It got his interest, so then he started assisting photographers back home in Amsterdam. His natural tendency to be more on the background observing his surroundings has been imbedded in his photographic approach. Veltman creates images of genuine ease with an aesthetic of natural beauty born out of a sincere interest in his subjects. Next to photographing he also works as a model in the fashion industry.
