My name is Kristian Joos. I’m born and live in Denmark with my family.
I like to call myself an engaged and passionated photographer.
I have not limited myself to work with only one image category like: landscape, nature, black & white or macro photography.
I like to work with all of the artistic elements; line, form, texture, composition, light and shadow.
My photographic career started when I was seven years old with my farthers manual film camera from the fifties - a Kodak Retina.
Later I bought, my first camera in a serie of many, a second hand film camera - Yesica Electro 35.
During my teens and early twentees I spend a lot of time in a traditional darkroom induce films and making black and white pictures on paper. A wonderfull time where I got all the basics in place.
Since my first Yasica I have worked with at varity of different camera brandes - both traditional film and digital cameras e.g.: Konica, Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Sony. My first digital camera was a Fujii Film. A very compact and light camera with a poor resolution compared to the cameras we have today. Now I’m a dedicated Canon fan.
