Hi. I am Erin Paula van Beveren. I am born in1963 in the city of Dordrecht the Netherlands. In 1988 I immigrated to the United States of America, and settled in the state of Virginia. My spoken languages are English, Dutch and German.
Over the years I lived in Fairfax county, Newport News and Hampton, to finally settle down in beautiful Henrico county, near the capitol of Virginia, the great city of Richmond.
My dear wife and I got married in 1986 and together we have four lovely children and five precious grandchildren.
My interest in photography started in my early years, around the age of 12. I photographed in both 35mm film &slides, and created short movies, with the than popular, super 8mm film.
While drafted in the army, I enjoyed still film photography especially in the darkroom, developing black and white photos. I became interested in digital photography in 2002, however I still like to occasionally shoot, and develop, black & white film, in 35mm and medium format.
I have graduated in professional photography at the NYIP,
New York Institute of Photography.
I am certified in passport photography at the SNF,
(Dutch Foundation of Photography Professionals)
Stichting Nederlandse Fotovakhandel.
I am certified withthe Dutch photomatrix 2007specifications, and familiar withthe current Dutch 2020 specifications.
