I am Adrian Sommeling and besides being a photographer also a creative director for an international company.
In 1990 I started my own advertising/design company. I have continued this business with great pleasure in both Wageningen and Rotterdam until 2010. During the financial crisis I thought it was time for something different and I started focusing on photography. Soon I found out that 'just' photographing is very nice, but that I wanted more. I wanted to tell stories with my pictures. That's how I came to what suits me best, telling stories through compositions.
This style has brought me a lot. From international assignments, to teaching photographers, advertising agencies and marketing departments all over the world.
Currently, I am combining all the knowledge I have gained over the past 30 years as a Creative Director, but am still shooting advertising photos on assignment.
