Open haven festival IJburg
IJburg is one of the prime examples of how the Dutch learned to live with water. To expand the city this youngest part was created and now it's a vibrant community housing lot's of families. They host a yearly fair in the local harbour with amusement for all ages. I was at the festival as a sound technician but saw time to take a few pictures during the day.
Portret #1 - Julia
Julia and I met at another job and agreed to take a series of portraits together. We took to an industrial area and took some shots at multiple locations while using different props we found on site. With mostly clouds and the sun coming in now and then we had great lighting to shoot with the Canon 85mm f/1.2L II USM.
Cinekid 2016 for IMC Weekendschool
Located in Amsterdam, Cinekid is the world’s largest media festival for children. Every year more than 50.000 children are given the opportunity to visit over 500 media productions selected by the festival: feature films, children’s documentaries, short films, animations, television series and single productions, cross media productions, interactive installations and set-ups as well as workshops. I was on site for two groups from the IMC Weekendschool. Their second-year students had been working on documentaries to show at the festival while the third-year students had been preparing for a fierce debate. Both groups got to enter the 'medialab' afterwards. Here they could experience a lot of new media including virtual reality. How cool!
Mama Kenia #1 - 180 Amsterdammers
Elizabeth Njeru heeft voor ogen om Keniaans eten hier in Nederland net zo vanzelfsprekend te maken als Chinees of Thais. Een stukje cultuur verspreiden en mensen door middel van eten dichter bij elkaar brengen. Voor de opening van de expo "180 Amsterdammers" in de OBA verzorgde zij de catering. Hier waren wij kort bij om wat foto's te maken.
Shootin' in the sand
This series of portrets was shot at a large patch of sand in the middle of the woods near Nunspeet. With the sun providing nice natural light during the sunset we had a lot of fun looking for the right shots.
For this little trip we went to a small village in Limburg close to Schin op Geul. This area is one of the only with hills in the Netherlands. A beautiful place to be; especially in the summer.
Mama Kenia #2 - André wordt 50
Voor dit tweede evenement met Elizabeth reisden we af naar het oosten van het land. Haar bedrijf was ingehuurd door de vrouw van André om een verrassingsfeest met Afrikaans thema te verzorgen. Wij waren vervolgens weer mee om het geheel vast te leggen. Enerzijds foto's van het (heerlijke) eten, anderzijds foto's van de groep. Een avondje genieten.

Portait #2 - Roos
Roos is an longtime friend who wanted a few new portrait pictures for a while now. Since I had a Canon 85mm f/1.2L II USM at my disposal we scheduled a meet. We took to a location near the IJ in Amsterdam. It was pretty windy but letting the wind play with her hair made a few playful shots. We found a little square close by with a a little less wind where we tried a few other shots. Another fun day shooting.
The board of Anguilla
These lovely ladies are the new board for student society Anguilla in Amsterdam. We had a great time shooting these group shots and portraits in the centre of Amsterdam. They wanted to have businesslike pictures; but they wanted to retain their sweetness and playfulness. I think we succeeded in creating that feel in the pictures.
