Editorial Portrait: Jan Drost for Folia Magazine

For Folia Magazine, a publication of the University of Amsterdam, I did a an editorial portrait of Jan Drost, Dutch philosopher and author.

The art directors idea was to do a portrait based on a classical Greek statue or bust.

Working on that idea, I thought it would be great to do it all in the shot, without digitally altering afterwards. The preparations:

By using a black shirt on a black background, we created the oval shape around the chest. This shape defines the bust portraits.

New Scientist cover shoot in Pauw talk show

Dutch comedian and presenter Dolf Jansen talks about the recent cover shoot for New Scientist in late night talk show Pauw.

The model life is not always that glamorous.

New Scientist – New Publication

For the New Scientist, Dutch edition, I was working on the new April 2015 issue. Featuring the scientific approach on running and exercising. Dolf Jansen, Dutch comedian and tv-presenter, and avid marathon runner was asked to do a test at the Asics Running Lab and tell about his training experiences as the main story.

It was the first time I got assigned by New Scientist and thrilled to start off immediately with the cover.

The oxygen mask did very well in the image, resulting in a scientific, clinical look and feel. To gain cover exposure, they finally went for the mix of a more visible (well-known) face, the mask and physical strain.

Tearsheets: Editorial Photography for Folia Magazine

Folia Magazine, an independent publication for the University of Amsterdam I frequently work for, recently got redesigned. With art directors at Vruchtvlees we worked on the photography for the new cover.

They wanted to go for a clean and more graphical shot. In support of the redesign leaning heavily on typography. Vegetables on the cover are digital altered (but all were thrown in air).

Than there was Sander Wirken, UvA PhD researcher and initiatior of documentary film Burden of Peace about Claudia Paz y Paz, the first woman to lead the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Guatemala.

Tearsheets: Editorial portraits for Rathenau Instituut

For a survey of the Rathenau Instituut i worked on the editorial portraits. The dutch institute studies and reports on developments in science and technology.

The survey itself was on shale gas and fracking. Various players in the field were interviewed and along with a study the publication was to spark debate on the issue and to inform decision makers.

Corporate Photography de Belastingdienst

For a national campaign by de Belastingdienst (Dutch Tax and Customs Administration) I did the photography for brochure U & de Belastingdienst and various online publications. The campaign was to inform on the various services, for private and commercial parties, the Dutch Tax Administration provide.

The agency went for a more documentary approach, with emphasis on people and environment. Although all settings were completely staged (location, models), i really liked to work towards a documentary touch. All images incorporates governmental visual guidelines.
