About me

arnoldvanwest

After my hotel college training in The Hague and Amsterdam I spent a few years working in the hotel and restaurant business, filling various positions both at home and abroad. Back from the States, where I worked as a food manager on cruise ships, I started in photography. My passion for the hotel and travel branch led to photographs of hotels, restaurants, food and travel. I consider the atmosphere in my photos very important, the viewer has to be triggered, to imagine his own story to accompany them. Anyone can take a picture with modern-day digital techniques, but taking one that makes a difference is another story! On my site, I take you along on my photo journey, during which I worked with people who love their profession just as I do. Photography with a smile!
