Portrait photography

Photographing portraits is a profession in itself. Because Jaap has worked with many actors and actresses, fast and effective work is necessary. People often have to be photographed in between scenes. Sometimes as a character, sometimes as themselves.

Most importantly, people feel comfortable and can show the best of themselves. The trick is to get that accent that most people don't see.

Jaap had many international stars in front of his camera such as Rutger Hauer, Burt Reynolds, Christian Slater, Jeroen Krabbé, Elvira Out, Naomi Watts, Isabella Rossellini, Liam Cunningham, Dominique Sanda, Skeet Ulrich, Paul Freeman, Rob Schneider and Val Kilmer.

Website photography

Today you cannot work with stock photography on websites again. Visitors want to see the real people with whom they will be doing business.

But how do you extract the elements from a person that are also relevant to the organization? By listening to what the organization wants to achieve with its website, Jaap has an idea to photograph. And that makes why Jaap's photos are different from the standard website photo!

He has worked for organizations such as Fattenfall, Nuon, Vodafone-Ziggo, Nivea, Boskalis, De Baak, RTL Nederland, Libelle, Koaching Akademie, Darlings & Demons, Althius, HollandsNieuwe, Jong Wijze Vrouw, Discovery Channel, Forbo, Unleash and the BBC.
