BIOGRAPHY:

RK Photography was founded in 2008 by Roland Klemp who is a freelance

photographer based in Hamburg Germany since 1999. The centre of interest

is more on classic cars while he still continues with people portraiture, architecture,

events photography and everything beautiful. Originally planning to become an

engineer, he veered from this when he realized his passion for photography.

Acquiring his first vintage camera at the age of 16, which he used to experiment

with continuously. Roland began his career as an Assistant Photographer under

mentor Alan Ginsberg, doing various shoots for magazines in Europe. This was

before the digital era and he learnt to set up professional lighting and special

old techniques to create high-quality black and white prints.

 

The passion for Vintage cars was set in motion together with his brother since

their early youth. Initially with British cars they started to restore old cars as a

compensantion to their professions. Later on they switched their passion to

German air cooled cars and still ongoing. After years of freelance work,

Roland made his first of what would become many trips to Kenya.

Travelling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of camera, he made

his way across the subcontinent exploring the East African countries with his camera.

 

Currently he ventures both Europe and Africa continents.
