After graduating, Andreas Terlaak (1976) combined his passion for music and his talents in photography to a specialisation, a profession and an unexplainable addiction; concertphotography.
He has an artistic approach and the strength to create a moment with the circumstances given, rather then just capturing what is happening in front of him. He freezes the artists emotions and unguarded moments, makes surprising compositions and use of stagelight.
Viewing his work gives you a sense of intimacy; the feeling as if you are right there on the edge of the stage. Just you and the artist.
Much of Terlaak's work is published in newspapers and magazines such as: NRC Handelsblad, NRC Next, Telegraaf, Nieuwe Revu, Hitkrant, Soundz and many more.
Terlaak was awarded the 1st prize in the Zilveren Camera 2007 with his Amy Winehouse photo, he won the 2nd Prize in the Zilveren Camera 2013 and 2018. He was nominated for the Pop Media Award in 2014 and longlisted for the Dutch National Portrait Gallery 2019.
Festivals, recordlabels and artists use his work for promotion and artwork. Highlights in Terlaak's career so far were his collaboration with Neil Diamond as his tourphotographer between 2008 and 2018 and working with Prince during a few shows in the Amsterdam Paradiso.
Besides his specialism of live photography, Terlaak combines a touch of charm and a creative eye in his portraits and other photography.
