Ernie Van Veen is a freelance photographer, videographer and musician in Australia.
"I have a passion for creativity. I love to write, take photographs, create short films, write songs and record music. I also love programming and technology. Not for itself, but for both the creative vision that technology inspires in its development and for the creative channels it provides for those of us who choose to use it.
As a man born near the middle of the last century I have reached a point in my life where creativity means more to me than ownership, wealth or social standing. I have strived for, and have, to a certain extent, all of these things; however, I feel I have achieved very little in that pursuit. But recently, with the urge to unleash my creativity no longer in restraints, I have discovered a new vitality, new desires, new paths to follow. All of those things that had started to seem dull or even transparent to me, have now begun to shine with a new and rather alluring light."
