André Nijenhuis is a profound ‘Rotterdammer’. He was born in 1957 in a characteristic part of Rotterdam called ‘het Oude Noorden’. This neighborhood , that consists of popular areas such as ‘Benthuizerstraat’, ‘Zaagmolenstraat’ and ‘Zwaanshals’, is a very lively place with a profound diversity of people and ambiances.

At an early age, André started experimenting with photography. First, he worked with a Kodak 6 x 9 ‘Folding Camera’ he got from his dad, after which he moved to a more professional Nikon DSLR, exploring nuances of light and dark, portraits of friends and family and the processing and printing of films in the dark room.

Many years later, now a professional photographer, he has developed a trained eye for the intricacies of light, composition and detail. His work can be characterized as serene on the one hand and documentary on the other, often in black and white, occasionally in color. As a photographer, his specialization is contemplative-, portrait- and streetphotography.

Apart from this, André has his own photography school in Rotterdam-Delfshaven, offering general courses in photography as well as more specialized workshops such portrait photography, nighttime photography and landscape photography. On a daily basis he teaches a broad range of levels varying from beginners to advanced amateur photographers.
