Welcome to my new Web Site. I am a professional Web Designer and Photographer.The two fields I specialize in are Web Design with a Content Management System and Photography, which consists of Photo Journalism of my travels, and photography of objects of art: paintings, 3-D works and sculptures. I also produce prints, such as Giclees. All of my work is digital.
In 2001 I graduated in Information Technology at Dirksen in Arnhem, Holland specializing in Web Design.
I established my business as a web designer creating commercial websites. Interested in art, I began developing websites for artists and Art Institutions, for instance for Big Arts on Sanibel Island, Florida.
Since 2010 I connected with Drupal, A Open Source Web Content Management System. This allows the owner of the websites I create to maintain their website, as easy as Face Book. Meanwhile I have developed several well functioning Drupal websites.
For more information and examples of my work view the menu "Websites."
In 1986 I graduated from the Dutch “Fotovakschool,” College of Photography in Holland, majoring in Photo Journalism. My company,“Rob de Koter Nautische Fotografie” Nautical Photography was established.. My work centered on inland shipping. Germany was my primary location mostly along the Rhine and its tributaries, expanding throughout Europe, and Canada. River Cruise companies, for instance like Vantage Travel and Grand Circle Travel, both based in Boston, became my clients. Photographic Landscapes enriched my portfolio.
My work gained vast recognition, being published in magazines relating to the shipping world and its organizations. I also published two books about inland shipping, Dutch titles: in 1996 Binnenvaart in Beeld and in 1999 Wat Vaart Waar.
Shipping was not my sole ambition so I started a new course. I acquired a digital photo studio, honing my skills in photographing paintings, and three-dimensional objects, prints- also Giclees. This new venue was confirmed with the change of the company name to “Rob de Koter Photography”.
The menu "Photography" should give an idea of my work, both current and former, showing numerous examples.
I hope you will enjoy exploring the site.
