Lookbook: Fashionchick x De Bijenkorf

Fashionchick x Bijenkorf - by THE VIEWFINDER-0414

“Cycling with the Fashionchicks through Amsterdam”

I had the pleasure of shooting another lookbook for Fashionchick: Fashionchick x De Bijenkorf. A assignment without a particular location, so we had a fun time searching locations on the go. It was again nice to work with these ‘chicks’  and I’m looking forward to our next collaboration.

For the whole shoot visit the PORTFOLIO section.

Editorial: Tea moments, Nadeche

“I’m a tea kind of girl”

Another shoot with Nadeche, this time at one of her favorite coffee stores in Amsterdam. It was a nice shoot with a few challenges, because it was quite crowded …nevertheless it went smoothly and the staff was very cooperative. The sun was most challenging that day, so I had to adjust the exposure all the time …but hey, that makes a shoot fun right!

I like working with Nadeche, so I’m looking forward to our next shoot. To see the whole shoot visit the PORTFOLIO section.

Shoot: Imitating Isabel Marant pour H&M, feat Aniek

THE VIEWFINDER H&M imitation shoot

 

If there’s one look book that I like it’s ‘Isabel Marant pour H&M look book’. So I planned on imitating this shoot for a while and I’m glad to finally have done. I picked out 4 looks that I wanted to shoot for this project.

It was a bit of a challenge, because I don’t own a large studio and high end gear which they used for this look book. Not to mention their team of specialists.

Go visit the PORTFOLIO section to see all the looks.

Special thanks to my lovely wife who modeled for this shoot.

Shoot: 70’s flared, Nadeche

THE VIEWFINDER Nadeche-shoot-1-7958

Just finished a nice first shoot with the lovely model Nadeche de Zwart …we planned on shooting together since we met more than a year ago. So finally we came together and did a 70´s shoot (on her request) on the streets in Amsterdam. We had a great time, working together went smoothly so from now on you’ll be seeing more shoots with Nadeche.

See the whole shoot with Nadeche at the PORTFOLIO section.

Shoot: Contrast feat. Jill

I had the pleasure of shooting with Jill again, this time for a studio shoot …the first one in my home studio. The idea was to do a contrasty shoot against a white wall for the subtle shadow to get some depth in the shots.

Go to the PORTFOLIO section to see the results.

Hey guys, I decided to add my portfolio to THE VIEWFINDER. Now you can easily get an overview of my work (outdoor & indoor shoots, look book, events etc) on the ‘ PORTFOLIO’ section and get more in depth info at my ‘COMMERCIAL’ section. Keep an eye on my portfolio to see my most recent work. For now it’s still incomplete so I’ll be adding more work in the upcoming days.

My shoot prep-routine

shoot preparing sketch-THE VIEWFINDER-5752

Location, model, theme …always enthusiastic when I got an upcoming shoot. For me the best way to prepare one is by illustrating my ideas, locations and inspiration I found in mags or online. That way I get a better visual that I can also present to the model/ client to be even more prepared before actually doing the shoot and sharing ideas results in a better result.

 

moodboard-shoot-THE-VIEWFINDER

By illustrating I don’t mean the well detailed illustrations (maybe sometimes) …often I just doodle around during the meeting to immediately present my ideas. It’s only natural doing this because of my illustration background. Above you’ll see an example of a moodboard I made for my shoot : Laundry day.

For me it’s nice to be able to combine my other great passion ‘illustration’ with my photography. If you guys got any tips or things you like to do before a shoot share it below.
