this site, my photography, writings, and some other issues

About this little website

This site does not use cookies. I just cannot be bothered about your clicking behaviour. I made the site using a template designed by TEMPLATED. It is a clean, simple, responsive, and above all fast design. Although I did tweak some in the CSS, building the site required little knowledge of html.

On this website you will find some series of my photographic work together with collages. In future I may add a selection of the paintings and other graphical works I made in earlier days. But in the end, you are allways looking at a digital representation on your uncalibrated screen. The real stuff is allways tangible.

A short and humble illeism

Niek van Schie is an autonomous photographer with a professional background in horticulture and landscaping. Together with nature, these are the most important themes in his photography. Nature sometimes seems hard and indifferent, but Niek always seeks beauty and selfless wonder. His art works are often the result of a process of intervention, collaging and re-photographing. He also applies older techniques such as cyanotype. Besides making images, Niek likes to talk, write and teach about photography.


As I have been writing about photography and related stuff a lot in blogs and magazines, and on earlier versions of this website, I thought it might be a good idea to start a newsletter: ecce. This newsletter will be published on my other website: Studio Nemus. It will be in Dutch at first.

On the website studio.nemus.nl you will find more info on the courses that I provide.

And for some other issues

You may want to follow me on Instagram, the attention seeking platform for all things visual.

This website is legally part of the website www.nemus.nl. There you can read, in Dutch, more about conditions for use and other legal twaddle.

And thinking about about pages of personal websites makes me realize they are stupid, dull and non informative. In this I succeeded.
