Portrait & Photo Report
Do you publish a newspaper, magazine, magazine or a corporate communication channel? Do you regularly inform your public about your work or what is happening in the world around them? For a number of clients I regularly make (series of) portraits and reports on various people and subjects. From refugees to industrial workplace, from car mechanic to member of parliament. The photos tell stories, illustrate interviews, articles, web texts and more. Often made on location, I take care of the entire process from briefing to delivery, wherever in the Netherlands or Flanders ir may be needed. Are you a photo editor, art director or trafficker, you might want to consider working with me in the production of premium photography for your projects and publication!
Social Media Portrait
Are you just starting out on social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter? Are you updating your resume? Was your current Social Media Portrait a few glasses ago? Then I can help you out! In studio or on location, for you alone or for the entire team, the shoot is completely customized. This is your professional presentation! Prices start at €49.95 ex VAT for a shoot in the studio. If I work on location, I charge: € 79.95 ex VAT. I always make several variants and together with you we choose the best three to five. I will send it to you immediately by e-mail.
Are you an agency, publisher or conference organizer that is good at organising conferences, symposia and other events? Ever thought about making a photo report of that event? Your visitors, participants and other relations will get a quick and good impression of the day! Perhaps I can contribute to successful day? Based on your briefing, I’ll be there all day (sometimes several days) to capture every aspect of the event. Would you like me to concentrate on very specific moments, for example for a press release? Of course you can! I am used to quick dead lines, so that press release and photography can be forwarded nearly immediately to the editors of your choice.
Digitalising Analog Photography
Are you into analog photography? Do you use multiple types of film when shooting? Or do you have an old analog photo archive with negatives, showing a few decades of history? Do you also want to be able to use these photos digitally for specific reasons? I can help out with that!
In use is an Epson V850Pro scanner with Silverfast software and Adobe Photoshop, which can convert your analog negatives and prints into high-res digital files, according to your specifications. I can handle most film formats; black and white, colour, 35mm, slide, medium format and flat film. In addition, ‘reflective images’ (prints) can be also scanned. Everything is delivered with Adobe RGB 1998 color profile and up to 300 dpi. Prices start at € 12.50 ex VAT per 35mm negative, plus a one-time fee of € 22.50 due to set-up and preparation. The digital files are delivered on CD-ROM or external hard drive, or sent via WeTransfer. If needed, negatives are returned to you in proper archive sheets.
Are you professionally involved in photography? Are you looking for an alternative source of turnover and income, and are you curious how exactly? Then my one-day workshop on stock photography might be an option! This workshop is aimed at professional photographers and artists who want to partner with a premium stock photo agency. In one day I will tell you all the ins and outs of the industry, and you will be ready to get started yourself. Topics we discuss are; different types of agencies and image banks, different types of licenses, exclusive and non-exclusive contracts, computer workflow and metadata, including captions and keywording. At the workshop you will receive an extensive reader and during the workshop you have every opportunity to ask questions. If you have any inquiries after the workshop, feel free to call me or send me an e-mail.
Dates & Location: There are currently no days and dates reserved. We plan these when it suits you best. The workshop is given at my home and workplace (studio) at Tuinstraat 47-07, 5038 DA in Tilburg. Costs are: € 165 excl. VAT. This includes a 50-page reader, in which everything is explained again. Cash payment as well as payment by bank card and credit card are possible. An invoice is of course possible.
On this website I also maintain a modest Webshop with photo-art that can be printed on Dibond. You will also find Studio Finds, Digital Photo Books and Series of Images on Magnetic Foil. Most of the photos in this Webshop were made on Analog Film, giving them a beautiful, vintage look and feel.
Extensive Stock Photography Portfolio
Since 2011, I have been working with the Spanish-Catalan AGE FotoStock from Barcelona for distribution of my Premium Stock Photography to Professional Image Users. This collection of almost 8,000 images can, after obtaining a suitable license, be used in all kinds of projects and publications. Books, newspapers, magazines, advertisement or website, it’s possible. Separate registration on the website is required. Searching is done most efficiently in English or using the Filters on the left side of the page. Would you like to browse through a beautiful collection of images and see if it fits within your project or publication? That can be done here!
Besides AGE FotoStock I also work with the British Alamy Stock. Alamy Stock has the largest collection of stock photos, illustrations and vectors in the world in its database. At least according to his own website, and part of that collection is produced by me. More than 250 million image files online, and as of March 2021 my portfolio at this agency will be over a 1.000 of them. Nice thing is, parts of my old analog photo archive are also available here. Have a peek and buy a proper licence here!
The British “RooM The Agency” is a small agency with a very commercial portfolio. All images in the database are edited and model & property released and can therefore be used for various commercial purposes. My portfolio consisting of just over 500 stock photos, in which mainly people figure. Have a look here for something suitable for your projects and publications.
