Exactly a month ago I had a pleasure to photograph a wedding of Paula and Clemence. A sweet German couple from The Hague who decided to marry in De Mesdag Collectie, making it my ever first wedding photographed in a museum and I can’t be any happier with this experience! Lovely location, stunning art collection, charming garden, beautiful couple and incredibly stylish guests - all the perfect elements for an unforgettable wedding. 

The light and colours looked great but something was telling me it’s black and white that will embrace the atmosphere and emotion of that day the best, and I think I wasn’t mistaken. What are your thoughts on monochrome only wedding photography?

Almost two months ago I was working as an Assistant Camera on the set of a Dutch feature film. Ten long heavy work days with hardly one day of rest in between are still kinda haunting my mind and body, but for the rest let’s say it was fun. 

I often take my camera with me even if, technically, I don’t have to make any pictures. This time often turned into.. one day, yeah… tiredness kills everything. Luckily I took it with me on exactly the right day, when we were shooting in a former prison complex Bijlmerbajes, which is currently anything but prison.. a hotel, a restaurant, climbing spot.. you name it.

Several floors and some other areas, as far as I know, remain untouched though. You can get a guided tour through these prison facilities, that in some cases look better than that hotel room you booked on your vacation to Thailand.. maar ja welcome to The Netherlands :)

Yet, even a comfy and relaxed ex-prison still has its creepiness, depri-wibes and that dark and empty feeling which I tried to capture in my photographs. Pictures are a mix of set and interior photography.

Exactly a month ago Duke of Tokyo, the very first Japanese karaoke bar opened its doors in Amsterdam on Reguliersdwarsstraat and as you probably already guessed I was lucky to photograph their amazing space.

I wouldn’t describe Duke of Tokyo any better as real writing talents of Colourful rebel already did:

“As though you’re walking through the narrow and mysterious streets of Tokyo, that’s the feeling you get when entering the Duke of Tokyo. In the back of the bar you can find eight karaoke booths, followed by a Japanese-like street filled with neon lights, posters and graffiti. The front of the karaoke bar is designed as a signature Japanese bar with intimate seating corners. At the bar you can try Duke of Tokyo’s signature cocktails, classic mixed drinks with an Asian twist and Japanese snacks.” 

Entree magazine also posted some of my interior photography for Duke, but my personal favourites are here (◕‿◕) ->
