Portrait of Glynis
This portrait of Glynis was inspired by Martin Schoeller. A famous photographer who did an amazing series on twins. It's not a commercial headshot, but to me a very nice portrait of her.
Portrait of Martin
This is currently my favorite image in the series. I want a neutral to serious facial expression with a very shallow depth of field, still with eyes and nose being fully in focus. Everything else should fade out. I consider this series more artwork than commercial portraits and got quite a bit of praise for the series. As you can see in the earlier images of the series the style developed over time and this is the first one which matches what I wanted to express.
Portrait of Patrick
Patrick is a teenage boy who came with his sister to my photo studio in Amsterdam-Zuid to get their pictures taken. He was incredibly photogenic and at the end of the photography session we did this one just for the fun of it. He looks much older here than he actually is and this was the image which made me start the series. I love the colors in this shot.
Portrait of Long
At the end of our corporate headshot photography session we took this image.
Corporate Headshot of Pim
After shooting many nice headshots with Pim we decided to go for some more serious looks and ended up with this one.
Takaomi is a fashion designer form Japan. He designed the scarf/sock himself and it is an important part of the image.
For my corporate headshots and business portraits I try to capture a friendly, approachable, confident person. Same goes for my portrait work, but these images are meant to show the real you with a neutral to serious expression and no bright smiles. This work is inspired by famous German/New York-based photographer Martin Schoeller.
