From today’s “A Portrait Project”

It’s pretty difficult to maintain a 365 photo project when you work from 9-6, especially since the days aren’t so long yet and I like to take my photos outdoors, in the natural light.

Today, as I was rushing out of the office during my lunch break in hope of finding someone for ‘A Portrait Project’, I bumped into my colleague Elien, who happily agreed to be photographed. I took several shots of her and below is an edited compilation of the result, which I really like. I hope you do too! :)

3rd Amsterdam Photo Walk

Today I joined the Amsterdam Photo Walk for the first time! We went to NDSM Werf, in the north of the city, and it was great fun, despite the snow, the sub-zero temperatures and the aching fingers!

I started off by snapping away with my Nikon D90, but ended up playing with the new toy I bought, the Holga iPhone lens. It’s a rotating disk equipped with 9 special effect lenses and it is addictive! I highly recommend it!

Here are some of the shots I took, which I posted on Instagram.

Frozen Amsterdam

It’s been snowing and freezing cold the past couple of days in Amsterdam. Today’s weather reminded me of last year, when the canals froze, turning the city into an incredible winter wonderland!

I had spent an entire weekend walking around the city, taking photographs, trying to soak in all the beauty and enjoy the calm that comes from the sound of snow. I just realised I never posted those photos here (apart from some Instagram shots I took with my iPhone), so here are some of my favourites!

You can also view the entire set here. I hope you enjoy them!

Oh, and fingers crossed, we’ll get to ice-skate on the canals again this year!

My new photography blog: A Portrait Project

Back from my Asian adventure to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia! I documented each day by blogging at least one portrait of a person I met along the way for a 365 photography project I started on the occasion of this trip, called A Portrait Project.

This project is a way for me to share my encounters with people during my everyday life & travels, and a motivation to take at least one portrait every day, for one year.

Check it out!

Me, on vacation at one of the most beautiful Greek islands, Folegandros. I don’t think I have felt or looked more calm, ever… Pure bliss.

Hartjesdagen 2012

Every year in August I love going to the Zeedijk for Hartjesdagen (Days of the Heart), which are celebrated with a lot of humor, cross dressing and fun. Hartjesdagen are famous for an ‘anything goes’ atmosphere with Amsterdam’s gay community taking a leading role. Here is one of my favourite characters this year! The full set can be found here.

On assignment: Vrouwenruimte De Kat
