This Photographer Dad Digitally Puts His Son Into Cool, Surreal Scenarios

So impressed with this guy’s photo-manipulation skills!

Adrian Sommeling is one awesome guy! This dad from Netherlands is a multi-talented man who works as a photographer, digital artist, graphic designer and web developer. He’s been working in the advertising industry from 1990 and his current project may be his most personal so far.

In photos that recently went viral online, we see Adrian’s superb photo-manipulation skills in full display. The images feature his son in various jaw-dropping scenarios.

In his official website, Adrian tells us:

“I do not only work for my clients. In my spare time I do love creating photos out of surreal situations, very often my own son is the main character within the scene through him I disclose my own past and future stories.”

As a father of a young boy myself, I can’t help but adore Adrian’s work! I’m sure his son will treasure all these photoshopped images through the years.
