Together with his partner Dominique, Dutch photographer Robin Homan devotes his livelihood to shooting weddings and portraits. He told us about the perks of being one half of a "photo couple".
When I was about eight years old, my grandfather gave me my first camera. It was a Canon EOS 650. My mother didn't want me to take any pictures with her camera on our holidays because I didn't follow the “rules”: I took photos of simple things I saw. After a few years I got into some other hobbies which made me forget about photography. When I met my fiancée Dominique I learned she also loved to take photos, so we started to take photos of our dog. After that things got out of control: We started our own company and we've been taking photos of couples and weddings for almost a year now.
This photo is of my fiancée Dominique. We were just playing around, taking some pictures of each other.
This photo was taken during a walk with the mother and all the siblings of our dog. There were about ten Australian Shepherds, all having a great time swimming and jumping around. We brought our camera along – this was the coolest shot I took that day.
I snapped this after we were done taking photos in a field near our hometown. When we started there were no people taking photos. But I guess we inspired some other people, who started taking photos as well. I don’t actually know the people in this shot.
Digital. I have shot some film, and love that way of shooting, but I can't stand the wait.
We live in Landgraaf, the Netherlands. But it's not “home”. I am are very much in love with London and hope we can move in that direction someday.
Post production plays a huge role in my style of photography. I edit all our pictures in Lightroom with our own set of presets.
I haven’t sold many photos, actually. Among the ones I did sell, this would be the one I’m most proud of.
That would be the last cup of coffee I drink before a shoot.
My fiancée Dominique.
We are actually getting married in Iceland this year! I am stoked about that – it’s a photo couple’s dream.
