Jonne Dijkstra contacted me to do an awareness campaign for Waternet. Waternet is a company that manages water in Amsterdam. They manage the drinking water of many households and also the sewage system.
The awareness campaign focusses on young people to raise awareness of the usage / spilling of good quality drinking water. To connect to the younger audience of the campaign Jonne used the photo’s as a base to build here pop-art-style illustrations.
At the gym on the coffee table there was a huge flower piece. My first thought was “This must be on the head of a model”.
There was a card inside the piece and the next morning I called Actief Bloemsierkunst and explained to them who I am and asked if the could help me out.
I then searched online “flower crown” for some moodboard pictures to find a model and MUAH.
Well this is or interpretation of a flowercrown portrait. We made some nice footage at a URBEX location.
“Bad Girl” shoot @ the Fletcher Hotel in Loosdrecht.
Always looking for upcoming talent like Aybike from the Styleschool by Dani. We had the fortune of shooting with an experienced model like Jasmijn who just came back from Milaan. Thanks A en P Models. Also a big shout out to Seda who did a great job with the Make-up.
Last week Amber a young stylist give me a call for a male shoot. Amber wanted the shoot to have a Grunge and dark look and feel to it. I think it works pretty well with the G-Star RAW outfits she shopped for the shoot.
For me its always fun to shoot male models. They are very different to pose than females. Nelson is great to work with. He has a natural pose, relaxed and strong. We had great fun on set. Hope it reflects in the photos, tell us what you think.
Black Noir originated in the 40’s till late 50’s. This film style expressed cynical attitudes and moody (lowkey) lighting.
The first week of January 2018 Erik shot a black noir inspired beauty shoot. Because Erik was in Emmen (Drenthe) at that time he used his mother’s apartment and redecorated the living into a small studiospace. For this he bought a venetian blind at the Praxis (Home Depo) for 12 euro. In the apartment, he found a ton of useful props like black vases and a gold retro lamp.
The basement/parking area of the apartment utilizes concrete walls and some nice light trough doors that gave some nice shadow patterns.
Leave a comment down below to let us know what you think.
Omar wanted to do a fitness shoot. Erik suggested to do the shoot in a parking garage. The concrete surroundings and low light will give a raw industrial feeling to the shoot he said. A couple of weeks later they did the shoot at: “De muntgarage”, Almere (Flevoland).

Leuke workshop gevolgt hier bij Focus17fitogragie. Fotograaf is zeer gepassioneerd over zijn vak en geeft deze workshops vol passie en overgave. Ook het model waar hij veel mee werkt en de visagiste zijn zeer professioneel.
Vandaag workshop studiofotografie bij Erik gevolgd en het was een zeer geslaagde dag zeker een aanrader goede sfeer erg gezellig iedereen krijgt goed de tijd om te oefenen en je krijgt van te voren theorie die je kan doornemen en tijdens de workshop in de praktijk kan brengen ook leer je het model aan te sturen.
Last week worked together with Erik on a fashion editorial. It was a very pleasant experience. Allthough the team worked hard, there was a very relaxed ambiance. Erik encouraged the team to give their all and while doing so we exceeded our own expectations. Loved working together! Would recommend Erik to anybody. He was also very quick with sending us the first images :).
Great person to work with! Creative ideas and with a vivid picture in mind. Had a great time and shared some great energy with Erik! In the end we've ended up with some great pics as well as a bonus ;)!!
Looking forward to next time !
Een top fotograaf, die weet waar hij mee bezig is. Heel relaxed om mee samen te werken en een goed oog voor details. Vond het fantastisch als visagiste/hairstyliste om met hem te mogen shooten. Bedankt je bent een Topper.
