Make unremarkable things visible. Things one cannot see.
Pweh! Now that’s what I call a great slogan !!!
For those of you who don’t know me: I am Dennis Graeser, a passionate amateur photographer from Wiesbaden, Germany. I love taking pictures from everything that crosses my way, especially from small and unremarkable things that normally wouldn’t get special attention at all.
Macro photography impressed me early on. To have the ability to reveal new and subtle details. This made every photo tour a real discovery tour.
But I like simple abstraction and the aspect of minimalism in my pictures as well.
Creative portraits of people have also found their way into my heart over time. Revealing inconspicuous details is a great pleasure.
Especially when you combine such portraits with exciting composings.
But please don’t get me wrong. I’m well aware of the fact that I’m by no means a popular internet figure or a good photographer. I don’t claim that my pictures are great, neither technically nor artistically. But hell, why not share some of them anyways ???
In case you’re interested in how I came to photography in the first place, please don’t hesitate to read this article. Back in the days, I decided to create an account on 500px.com to post pictures online. Over the time I tried several platforms and added more and more social media.
But for me it turned out that too many platforms at the same time were way too consuming.
I couldn’t provide for them all. Besides, I’ve always encountered several limitations.
Consequently, I moved from all those platforms to this website only.
Through this approach I can decide independently how to arrange and design contents. This website is intended to be more than just another portfolio of pictures: I want to connect texts with images. I want to write about the creation of them or about anecdotes connected to them.
I also want to share some inspiring messages with the world.
The stories section is the very heart of the website. Here I talk about pictures and topics that are linked to them. This is done through articles as you know from a classical blog.
That would be the place where my aforementioned writing comes to bear. But of course the website is not only about writing. It’s about pictures.
For those of you who don’t want to read such texts, there is also a section where only pictures and nothing else is shown. Because the words of a wise man still counts:
There are more than a thousand words hidden in a picture.
And then you come into play. If there’s something on your mind, you can tell me using the contact page. To stay in touch with everything, you have the unique chance to subscribe to my conscientious newsletter. Either way, it would be an honor to hear from you.
Now, that was a lot of words. You should probably get yourself an own impression.
So please let me invite you to #dgraesershots!
In case this is the first visit, you should start with my prime selection of starred articles.
If you like the website, its stories and pictures, please don’t hesitate to share it with your friends on your social media or in real life. That would be some real support.
