Who is Niels Van Iperen?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a photo by Niels Van Iperen screams a million, and more.

Whether it’s capturing Kurt Cobain or AC/DC for the front cover of Rolling Stone, or his winning entry for The Prix de la Photographie Paris, his world-famous images have one thing in common:

Despite being ‘stills’ – they are committed to telling stories that are active.

As a recognised master of technical innovation, he is currently the representative for Hasselblad, Leica and Profoto in South America.

Niels’ dedication to honing his craft means he is constantly learning and embracing new technologies. His images that once leaped off glossy pages, now sparkle on the screen.

However, it is his dedication to the underlying craft and unique eye for iconic imagery that truly sets Niels a head above the rest.

No small feat in this modern world where every kid with a semi-intelligent smartphone can proclaim himself a photographer.

Adventurer, crazy artist and intrepid traveller, Niels Van Iperen is currently based in Bogota, Colombia.

When not immersed in international commercial shoots, he invests his creativity in more thoughtful travel and portrait works that have featured in international exhibitions.
