“A fine-art photograph has the quality to make us believe that we’re looking through the eyes of the fine-art photographer and not just merely through the camera’s lens.”

Joel Tjintjelaar is a fine-art photographer, specialized in Black and White, long exposure, architectural, landscape and still life photography. Born in Jakarta, grew up in The Netherlands, trained as a criminal lawyer, but worked in the IT for over 20 years before he decided to quit his daytime job and to dedicate the rest of his life as a full-time professional photographer in 2014.

Joel believes that fine-art photography and art, in general, is about creating experiences to change perceptions and create awareness, sometimes on an aesthetic level, but preferably on a more profound level that changes how we see the world and contributes to a meaningful cause.

As a photographer, Joel won several 1st and 2nd prizes at the prestigious International Photography Awards between 2010 and 2014 and other commendations such as shortlisted photographer for the Sony World Photography Awards in 2010. Joel has developed a digital B&W post-processing method that has been adopted by many B&W enthusiasts over the world since 2011. Together with FOTOTV and cinematographer Armand Dijcks, Joel has produced several video tutorials on B&W photography and long exposure photography. His work has been published in all the leading photography magazines since 2009 and his work has been represented in galleries and displayed in exhibitions worldwide since 2013. He is a signature edition artist for Formatt-Hitech and one of the faces for the introduction of the PhaseOne Achromatic camera. These days Joel is spending most of his time teaching workshops and mentoring students from all over the world on the art of B&W photography and is producing advanced B&W editing software panels for Photoshop since 2016.

Joel is also the co-author with Julia Anna Gospodarou of the 424 pages eBook From Basics to Fine Art – Black and White Photography – architecture and beyond released in 2014.
Here’s just an example of what others say about the book. In this case George DeWolfe:

“Outside of Ansel Adams’ Basic Photo Series, From Basic to Fine Art, by Joel Tjintjelaar and Julia Anna Gospodarou, is the best book on B&W photography written in the last 40 years.”
