Carol P. Govaert


A number of years ago I was at a crossroads and needed a change. The answer came to me after many loved ones passed away in a short period of time.  As the old saying goes; life is short. Photography has always been an important part of my life.  So I took the plunge and decided to make photography my life's work. Over the years I have taken countless amount of photography courses all over the world, but I knew I needed intensive training to become a professional photographer. I studied at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam and haven't looked back.

Photography helps me explore the world, which often confounds me.  I exorcise my demons, explore buried emotions, and make fun of this crazy place.  

 

 


I come from California and currently reside in Amsterdam. I have spent over 15 years in the Netherlands and another 10 years in South America and Asia. My love affair with photography  began 30 years ago when I traveled for the first time to Europe and received my first camera.
