Hans Kool Profile picture The Baggage Carriers' House is a former guildhall of the baggage carriers' guild in Schiedam. It was built in 1725. The building has a tower with an associated clock. This bell was rung when a ship sailed in. The bagbearers then went to the guildhall. Once the men were inside, their names were written on the so-called 'smack boards'. Whoever rolled the highest dice was entitled to work. The work consisted of unloading the grain ships. As early as around 1250 there must have been porters in Schiedam. They carried goods from one ship to another. Over the recently built dam in the Schie. A century later these carriers organised themselves in a guild. The exact date is not known. It will be similar to other port cities and in any case before 1465. That is when the Anthonius guild was first mentioned in the Keurboek van Schiedam.

Hey! Welcome to my shop at Werken aan de Muur . Due to my travels in Europe, I sometimes have the opportunity to create beautiful images. Dedigital Photography brings more creative possibilities such as panorama photography and increasing the dynamic range of a photo. I use the so-called Digital Darkroom to show the world how I think it should look and how I often experience the world. Software allows the dynamic range to be increased to show the beauty of the world around us. My passion for photography goes back to when I was young, I saved up for many months for my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic box, when I was 10 years old. After seeing the first results, I knew: this is it! Many cameras have passed the revue since that first one, the darkroom has given way to fast computers and although the camera I use now is much more advanced than that first little camera with its little red pushbutton, I realise that the technology is much less important than our eyes. Looking at a scene and knowing what and how you want to show it, that is what matters most. I also apply the art of omission in my work, so humans often have to pay the price and are not allowed in the images. Often, I also succeed in making the world just a little bit more beautiful than the sometimes so hard and ugly reality. I hope you like my work... If you have any questions, you can always contact me! Hans P. Kool
