There's all sorts of situations I get called in to take photographs.
A series of business portraits on location.
Corporate images for (small) business campaigns.
A set of images representing the identity of your company.
Turning the experience of your event into an image story.
So what's my touch, what makes a photo typically mine? Well, I like to think it's the combination my versatile character and my ability to capture feelings over facts.
In my experience, all shoots - whether prepared by just a phone call between me and the client or more thorough with a team of image experts - require great improvisation on set. Coming to a shoot I often see things coming together for the first time and even when everything's thought through - there's always the everchanging light to work with. Being versatile is - I think - one of a photographers most important qualities. And - lucky me - I'm a sucker for new new NEW, my brain is just superhappy when improvising. So I'm typically an easy, low-stress appearance on the job. This easygoing state of mind allows me to focus on all the beautiful things happening around me.
So what's this cliche talk about feelings-over-facts? Well, turns out, it's not a cliche for nothing. I like taking photo's of beautiful things, it's satisfying. But I love taking photo's of the feeling something gives me. I think thats where my photo's stand out. I'm not afraid to show you what your event/day/company feels like to me. It's personal, I know. But starting off as a young photography graduate in 2000, a wise lady taught me that personal is not necessarily private. It's committed and it's real, and through the years I've noticed that those feelings are not just mine, they actually represent a greater audience.
So there you go
I've just told you about myself and my motivation on being a photographer. On a more practical note there is information on the way I work in the expectation section. And if you want to see me working, do check out the short documentary that my talented friend Nelleke Koop made of me on the job - working in family documentary work. I hope to meet you some day, so you can tell me what your companies goals & motivations are and who knows we're on the verge of a cool collaboration.
