I am Marc Boom. And I was born in 1968, Wormerveer. Today I live in Alkmaar (The Netherlands, 40 km to the north of Amsterdam. I’ve studied graphics, webdesign, and photography. Most of the photos are portraits of friends and muscians whom I have met at Parkhof; a little concert-stage here in Alkmaar.
My interest for photography started when I got a Praktica-camera from my dad. After some courses at the Fotovakschool, my insight and experience with photography grew immensely. It was a good experience learning to ‘watch’ in another way; To watch for the right composition; And use good lighting. And when it all fits together, push the button to make it all happen. And I always enjoy this moment, mostly because at that exact moment of only 1/15th of a second, I experience that special contact with the person, or the scene in front of me.
