Fashion in Amsterdam

Everyone loves Amsterdam, right?
Well it’s indeed a very interesting and cool place for photography, so when the guys from KelbyOne visited to shoot some of new classes one of the locations HAD to be Amsterdam. Today some of the results we got from that segment from my class on shooting fashion on location, part was done with small flash and part with the Elinchrom Quadra series.

Fashion on location at the old harbor of Schokland

Today on my blog some images from my KelbyOne class on fashion on location in which I explain a lot of techniques you can use while shooting in different locations. Some of the locations were a Car Junkyard, Amsterdam and the images I’m gonna show today which were shot in the old harbor of Schokland. So if you want to know more about the techniques to create these and plenty more tips check out my classes on KelbyOne.


This is without a doubt one of my favorite places and it’s right in the middle of one of my bike routes.
Believe it or not but we actually live below sealevel in Emmeloord *my hometown, not 60 years ago this was all sea and these places which are now Unesco Heritage were part of small islands spread out in the area including Schokland, which is actually a little bit further out and maybe the best know town Urk. (the home town of my favorite camera store CameraNu)

A quick tip about light and the car

You must have at one point heard the expression :
“always carry your camera because it’s so fricking difficult to make a picture when you don’t have it”
And this is 100% true.
Even when we travel I always have my camera close by and I make no joke when I tell you that some of the most interesting shots were actually taken through the windshield of our car, it’s a totally different view than you’re actually used to, and sometimes the cars windshield actually helps in the lighting by adding some “funky” stuff. Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of these images end up in the pile “I love them but nobody is allowed to see them” but sometimes I really like a shot that much that it ends up in my portfolio.


While driving back to the Mandalay in Vegas we had to stop for a traffic light and the sun just hit the hotel (which has a very distinct golden hue) and the women wanting to cross the street. Now for some this might just be a picture/snap shot but I just loved the overal look and golden glow plus the added backlighting. If you don’t like the shot, no problem but remember that there can always be something that’s fricking awesome and you better have your camera handy……because otherwise you miss the shot.


Now how do you set the camera?
When driving I often have it set on auto ISO with a minimum shutter speed of 1/500 this way I know that if the car is moving you can always get something interesting…now do remember I don’t tell you to shoot while driving (blink blink) but it could happen, of course this is stupid and dumb…. but then again if you’re careful enough you could take some cool shots…. but just to make sure that you understand, this is DANGEROUS not only for yourself but most of all for the people around you so when doing this make 100% sure you do it safe, NO picture is worth hurting yourself or others.

A new kind of BTS video

Today a new sort of BTS video.
Annewiek always films some behind the scenes material during the location workshops and edits them into small BTS videos for you guys to watch later via our YouTube channel. We decided however that although they are fun to watch it would be nicer if they would also give some information about the gear I’m using on location and some background information on the shoot, model etc. and who knows what more in the future.


Today the first sample of this new approach, feel free to let us know what you think.
