My name is Hans Schachtschabel . I enjoy the creativity of Photography . I retired as a child and adolescent psychiatrist ( 2012) and I spent a lot of time now taking Photo’s and developing them in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Under my nickname Hans Falk , I am also a lifetime free-lance Photographer and run a business : Hans Falk Art Photography (named after my grandfather to honor him)
In 2006 I moved from Amsterdam to Wijk aan Zee , back to my roots , nearby the sea , where I belong.
My photography is mostly about the sea and related subjects , wind , waves , sky , boats ,fish , hands at work. There is no specialisation, I make photo’s of what interest me and I will see what comes on my path. I love to make portraits ,mostly in available light.
Travel photography from Antarctica to the Atacama desert (Chile) is a part of my free work.
My first exhibition 1990 : ‘IJmuiden revisited’ : Analoog Black and White.
My latest business projects are photo’s for websites of a notary , a fish and a wine restaurant :
