RT Reference Photos is a website that I, Remco, created to offer my photographs and my wife's earlier work (re-efited by me) as a reference for artists. The R is for Remco & the T for Tazi, my wife.
We share our passion for animals and photography. We love taking animal portraits and have a slight preference for big cats and primates, but we enjoy every animal we get in front of our camera. Due to my wife's brain injury, photographing has become very hard but she does sometimes try it, because it is her passion. Photo editing is pretty much impossible, so I decided to (re)edit her eatlier work, from before the accident and offer some of those photos here on the website too.
Photography used to be a way for us to relax and clear our heads while observing gorgeous creatures. Eventhough it is hard for my wife now, to me seeing that smile on her face when she sees her favoriete animals is worth all the effort.
As photography is an expensive and time consuming hobby too, I ask for a small fee to use the photos as a reference for your art. I use high quality (Canon) camera equipment and (Adobe) editing programs and have put a lot of time and energy in taking and editting the photos. I basically ask for a small fee, to support me as amateur photographer.
My dream is to just make a little bit extra, so I can cover my expenses for this hobby as well as support wildlife conservation programs.
For me it is a huge honour and I consider it an enormous compliment that wonderful artists get inspired by the photographs on this website. I absolutely love seeing the art pieces you create and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support.
