About Ape Photos. Fotograf Düsseldorf und Umgebung
"if you've seen it happen, you've already missed it"
Hey! I'm Ant! I've been known by the pseudonym Apeman for many years (like over 20), and to this day I'm still not sure where it came from!
I'm a British photographer based near Düsseldorf, Germany.
While my main passion is editorial photography, be it a concert, or a protest - i love to be in the action. I also undertake commercial assignments.
I've been taking pictures since the film days of the late 90's when i studied media and photography in college. I majored in sports photography, and spent some time shooting professional football in England before moving on to other things.
The quote "if you've seen it happen, you've already missed it" came from a photographer i met whilst shooting my first football match. An interesting bit of advice that's stayed with me to this day. It's almost become a mantra for me; especially when shooting live music, which is similar to shooting football - just much less light!
I'm easy to work with, and my laid back and fun approach to my work is also reflected by my subjects.
My style is simple and honest - no BS.
To-date, i've shot artists such as Green Day, Kings of Leon, Bob Geldof and others, and have undertaken commercial assignments for Fiat-Chrysler. I'm an editorial contributor for Getty Images, as well as a regular contributor to Coolibri Magazine. My music images have also been published by Gig-Photographer.com and monkeypress.de.
I have a solid and growing social media presence and can help put your project 'out there'!
I'm available now for your assignments, worldwide.
Whatever Ideas you have for your imaging needs, lets talk about them and make them real!
