General Questions

I am based in Amsterdam, but I can travel to your place in Berlin, Germany or Netherlands.

Both is possible. I am traveling to the location of your choice!

No I don’t. Let me explain to you why. There are similar images, duplicates, extra test shots, missed focus shots or not the right expressions. I preselect the best images for you. I take my time for you to select the sharpest and best photos, this is a time consuming process.

With my expertise of professional retouch, I know what is the best of the best!

Yes I do. At weekends, minimum session time is at least 5 hours.

COVID-19-Plan

I would like to make you understand what to expect during a photo session. Giving you the best security experience anytime while your photo session, is my service for you.


I have to follow the rules of the government to protect you and me perfectly.


Here is a list of what I am doing to make your photo session experience as secure as possible:



  • Sanitization – Every part of the equipment & other used objects will be sanitized before & after a client enters the photo space. Windows will be opened all 20 minutes for air circulation.

  • Face Covering – I will wear face coverings / masks during the shoots at any time given. While not being photographed, please wear a face mask as well. Thank you for understanding.

  • Maintaining Distance – I will maintaine distance any time. I will guide you, how to pose from the distance & without touching you. I am using longer focal lenses to ensure to have enough space (2,5m or more) to you.

  • Outdoor Photo Sessions – I advice in general, if a photo session takes place outdoors, to be at wide open spaces with less people, streets beaches, and so on.

  • Your wishes – If you would like to add your own guidelines, feel free to send me a message anytime. If you like to have a negative PCR test from me, I will charge a little extra fee for the test only.

Thank you for supporting a small business!
