Perou, Great-Britain, 1970, learnt how to photograph while he was running a hire studio. This is where he met the people behind Dazed and Confused Magazine. While working for Dazed and Confused he started taking more and more pictures. Perou now shoots music, portrait, editorial and fashion. Next to his photography he has also directed video's for various artists such as Marilyn Manson and KT Tunstall. The following images come from various shoots.
The target of this website is embedded in its name; to post active image-makers until we reach 500 photographers. The photographers can be from any discipline within the photographic range, but they have to be worth looking at and have a certain level of quality. When we get to number 500, we will have a deep database of great photographers.
500 photographers is done by Pieter Wisse, a photographer himself based in Rotterdam, NL. For three years (2009-2012) he was the founder and owner of Four Eyes Photography & Art, a gallery and bookstore based in his hometown that also released Four Eyes Photography Magazine.
Once this website reaches photographer #500 it will be finished and done. It will then only be here with the function of being an archive of amazing photographers of the 21st century.
