A bit more about Stephan Lourens:
As described in the above CV, I am currently a free-lance photographer/stay-at-home-father. Because of the current recession, I am now looking for employment in areas of my expertise, but I am not disregarding other opportunities that could come my way. I even have great interest in work such as a driver and/or chauffeur. My experience in life and work is much more than can be put on one sheet of paper, and can always be better explained in person.
I have heard that people describe me as follows: honest, patient, friendly, strict, fair, intelligent and punctual, although some say I’m always early. But I have also been described as funny, quirky, off-beat, fearless, individualistic and logical. From my own experience, I can say that I am someone who gets along with anybody.
My main area of expertise lies in the field of photography and digital imagery. Over more than 12 years I have done any and all types of photography, except aerial and underwater.
Who I am can be better described in person, and when put in that situation, I do not disappoint.
If you feel I fit the criteria of a person you would like to work with, do not hesitate to contact me.
