About Me

Hi there!
Welcome to my profile.

I am Josefien, a photographer, make-up artist, and model.

I love to work with models in all sorts and sizes wink
I believe it takes a lot more than just a pretty face..

Photography has been my passion since I was able to use a (digital) camera. It started out with taking pictures of flowers and my cats, in and around the garden. Soon after, I started using my sister as a model. We styled her in the most outrageous outfits and applied crazy make-up, totally high fashion, or so our young girl brains thought.

When I started my study in graphic design and desktop publishing, I was required to find an internship. I found it at the best place I could have ever hoped for, the woman who taught me  so much about not only photography but also life itself. Ursula van de Bunte. I will forever be grateful for the things she taught me and the opportunities she has given me. During this internship I developed many useful skills, I got better at retouching and learned how to shoot in a studio with professional lights, in a creative and original way. We also shot a lot of weddings, and took hundreds – if not thousands – of photos. After we parted our ways ( I moved away, and she got new interns ) she continued to be an inspiration to me, among many other amazing photographers. My style is completely my own, and has had a lot of time and space to develop, but it has been influenced by many fantastic creative minds.
I’m used to shooting on location and working with very limited space. At the moment almost all of my photographs are taken in a makeshift studio in my living room, or on location elsewhere. I pride myself in being able to create high quality images no matter where I have to work.

From the very beginning I did a lot of the make-up and styling for my models and clients. My interest in fashion and make-up had a chance to grow and develop into something I could really use in my images. I am however very happy when I can work with other make-up artists and stylists, because I love how each person just creates more passion to  pour into the project. There are many people that I work with on a regular basis and this will probably be visible in some of my work. If I love working with a model, for example, I will try to work with her on another project as well.

A photo shoot with me is a creative process. Sure, on many occasions everything will be planned out beforehand, but when a creative team gets together, anything can happen. You get into a flow and plans can change. To me, it is very important that everyone that’s part of the team gets to put a part of themselves into the image. I will always try my hardest for you to make sure you get the images that you had in mind.

At many of my shoots, my partner assists me. We’ve been together for years, he is a great photographer himself and it’s great to grow and learn together.
