Jacobs was born in 1945 in Maastricht, the oldest town of the Netherlands,
were he is still living. Frans is an "autodidact" ( selfmade
) photographer. He started with photography only in 1997 "by
accident". His niece Anouk ( 12 years ) asked him to make a
nice picture of her. With an old second hand camera he started to
make Anouk's pictures. Than the camera broke down and also the film.
But from the few "rescued" good pictures was the one of
Anouk. The result gived Frans the idea to start Portrait & Model
Photography. All pictures are Analog pics. Frans is no "technical
freak", he makes pictures "with his stomac" ( Feelings
The specialisme of Frans is: "Female Emotions" In each
picture Frans tryes to expose one ( an ) emotion of the model, whatever
that emotion is: the young shane teenage girl of the pose of the
prowed nude. Frans Jacobs had several expositions in The Netherlands
and was selected for some Dutch photo competitions.
