About Me

I am Willem Wernsen (1954, Amersfoort, The Netherlands). I am autodidact. I have developed myself from amateur to professional photographer. My work is mainly social documentary, many portraits and street photography.

Some 40 years ago I bought my first camera. Photography started as a hobby, but it has grown into a passionate life style.

From start I felt the need to photograph people. Of course in black and white, because I love that the most. In that time I collected books of the great photographers. Many hours I have spent looking at all that beautiful photos, it gave me so much inspiration.

Through the years I have developed myself and - as the connoisseurs say - also my own style of photography. I'm a member of the Dutch organisation for professional photographers: Dutch Photographers

I have published 5 books:
* Beautiful People (2003, sold out)
* Timeless (2011, sold out)
* Behind the Great Wall (2014)
* On Street Photography (2015 - E-Book Craft&Vision, Canada)
* Streetwise (2019 i.c.w. Piet Van den Eynde)



For specific questions about purchasing books and photos, attending a workshop or giving a lecture, I kindly ask you to contact me using the form below.

In order to answer your email as well and as quickly as possible, I ask you to state all the details that are important to you.

Thank you for your interest,

Willem Wernsen.
