About me

Niels Dam is a semi-professional photographer from the Netherlands. As a medical doctor in training in daily life, he spends his free time traveling around the world and capturing Cityscapes, Landscapes  and Forestscapes.


Welcome! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Niels and I am a photographer based in the Netherlands. I started with photography in 2015 when I bought my first Nikon DSLR. As many starting photographers, I first photographed many different types of subjects, but I soon realized I enjoy shooting Landscapes and Cityscapes the most.

I started to educate myself by reading and watching tutorials online. This allowed me to learn about different techniques for shooting and post-processing, after which I started experimenting with these techniques and implement them in my own photography. Over the years, I also developed my own 'signature' HDR technique to capture scenes at night to their fullest potential. For more info, see my post-processing page (coming soon).

For me, photography isn't just about taking pictures, it also inspires me to travel to amazing locations and meet new people. I prefer to shoot during the ‘magic hours’ of the day, as these usually provide the opportunity to capture the most beautiful images in unique lighting conditions.

I found that photography offers me the chance to present the world as I see it or as a I would like it to be: beautiful, wonderful and full of mystery. My landscapes are not always a ‘true’ representation of visual reality, but more an equivalent of what I saw and felt at that particular moment in time.

Feel free to have a look at my portfolio to see a selection of my favorite works.
