Maurice Lammerts van Bueren is a much sought-after portrait photographer for musicians and other artists. As a professional concert pianist and established lieder accompanist, he feels at home in the vibrant world of singers and instrumentalists.

"As a professional classical pianist, I find the most attractive part of my job to tell a story, to communicate with the audience and to expose the stunning beauty of the notes in my scores. As a photographer I try to do the same: tell a story, communicate, expose a bit of the person's soul."

Joined by my Sony camera and my Zeiss Batis lenses, I search for a characteristic and appealing portrait that hopefully reveals something of the inner side of the person in front of my lens."
