This week we’re featuring a great story from one of our most viewed contributors, Kim Høltermand.
Any of our Behance users who have opened up Prosite for the first time may already be familiar with his sample homepage, but when he decided to join Behance way back in 2007, Kim Høltermand didn’t know what to expect. He comes from a creative family–his father an artist, his grandfather an architect– but Mr. Høltermand only picked up photography recently as a side project from his rather unusual career as a fingerprints expert in the Crime Scene Unit of The Danish National Police.
“Joining Behance changed my life.”
“When I joined Behance in 2007 I did not know what amazing impact it would have on my life. Soon to reach 1.000.000 project views on my Behance profile. I have been able to reach out to people all around the globe, been featured in endless magazines and publications and had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest clients in the world – in 2011 after 2 years of emailing with a fellow photographer I even got to travel to Iceland and make my own documentary.
“All of this had not taken place had I not uploaded my first series to the Behance Network on that cold Christmas Eve in 2007. I have always been a dreamer and a believer and I can say that some dreams do come true. This is one of them. And I am sure there are lots more to come. Thanks to Behance and the huge community of people that follow my work.”
