“As a business photographer, my goal is to create beautiful and pure images in an open and casual atmosphere. Corporate photography, business portraits, and more”
After buying my first camera, it became clear to me: photography makes my heart race. Not too soon after, I signed up for a photography introduction course, which led to graduating from the Fotovakschool (education for applied photography). In addition to this education, I attended regular courses — and I still do: anything to keep myself constantly evolving and to keep my skills up to date.
What I also love doing most is daydreaming. Or rather, living my dreams. The energy I get from this translates to my love for and dedication to (business) photography and the creative process that this entails. It is always a treat to grab my camera and to go through this process — together with customers.
Speaking of living my dreams: after an intense and turbulent time of going through IVF treatments, it was time to realize another dream in 2016. The disappointment, the stress and the processing of an absence of pregnancy had not diminished my dream of becoming a professional photographer. On the contrary. With a great deal of enthusiasm, I started the Fotoloods in 2016 as a photographer in my own town, Oldenzaal (Twente, Overijssel). A dream that, had things turned out differently, might never have become a reality…
Over the past few years, I have been able to gather experiences within different areas of photography. This has allowed me to discover where my strengths lie and what truly makes me happy: business photography, business portrait photography, food photography, interior photography and real estate photography. As a photographer, my goal is to create beautiful and pure images in an open and casual atmosphere.
In addition to being the owner of De Fotoloods, I live with my boyfriend, Adam, and our cat, Sophie, who is lucky enough to live with us in her kitty bed. It’s not just photography that I am passionate about: I also enjoy cooking and socializing with friends.
There’s more. I believe that everyone should do something for someone else. This is why, in addition to being a photographer, I have been a volunteer for many years for a couple who both have an learning disability. I have a cup of coffee with them every week and we regularly plan outings, so they end up in places they have never been to. I also think it is important for me to contribute in a professional sense. Every year, I photograph the Boeskoolrace (which is organized by Leo Club Oldenzaal) and I work altruistically for Samenloop voor Hoop and Against Cancer.
Would you like to know what I can do for you and your business in Oldenzaal or far beyond as a photographer?
