My interest for photography grew instant when I got to hold a camera for the first time ever. My childhood was captured with this golden oldie polaroid you see in my hands. And now I’m capturing every cool thing that meets my eye with my trusty Canon 5D Mark III.

Speulderbos, 2018

This is probably the only morning I didn’t mind getting up super early on my day off and wander into the woods with my dog and camera. The moment I took the photo of Kenji sitting on a tree it felt like winning a lottery – being super satisfied with the result. I hardly edited these photos because the light was truly mesmerizing.

Instagram shoot @melaniamylioti

Melania Mylioti is a female professional gamer based in Rotterdam. Playing CSGO for a living, how cool is that? With over 60K followers on Twitch, she also wants to boost her Instagram. Together with Melania I’ve created a fresh batch of photography content to enhance her Instagram aesthetics and increase engagement. 


Shooting for DWAM 

DWAM (Dog With A Mission) is a brand that creates amazing and unique pet accessories. DWAM donates a portion of every sale to a variety of animal-related charities. The old collar collections go to rescue animals so that they can feel loved and stand out as well, drawing human eyes to their hopeful eyes as they wait to be adopted. 

It was an honor when DWAM asked us for a collaboration via the Instagram account of my dog. With Kenji as a model I’ve created content for DWAM’s Instagram and website.
