Judging the Urban Photo Race Competition

Giving out prizes after judging the 2018 Amsterdam Urban Photo Race Competition. We had an honor to greet most of the winners, talk to the jury and reveal some outline of our prospects for next year’s competition.


New marketing platform

In the efforts to help build and support the local photography community, I’m very proud to having helped build a new marketing platform titled: Self Publishers United. A collective of more than twenty local photographers who have published their own photography books. The recently founded group will present itself for the first time at a stand during next week’s UNSEEN book market.



International Business Studies

After having dedicated the last 8 years of my life creating the Amsterdam Photo Club, the club (and foundation) has grown as far as I am able to take it. Before building on top of this platform of over 4.500 members, I have decided to enter into a 4 year bachelor’s program in international business at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science. It is clear that the road forward will require additional business skills.

Photo Book Fair

Very impressed at today’s photo book fair by so many talented photographers producing analogue images. Though it felt a little like bringing sand to Sahara when you’re trying to pimp a book about selling digital photos online



2018 Photography Trends & Optimizing Photo Sales Online

A new year means new trend analysis and updated workflows for submitting and selling photos online. During my presentation at LAB111 in Amsterdam, participants learned how to sell their photos to advertising agencies, magazines, book publishers, newspapers, designers and anyone else seeking to licence photographs. We also covered the latest photography trend analysis and how these trends could be incorporated into a photographer’s portfolio. We discussed examples of intellectual property infringement and liability issues when selling your photography on the world’s largest photography licensing platforms.


Annie Leibovitz Photography Course

As a hardcore fan of Annie Leibovitz, few photographers have been so excited about a photography course as I was when I discovered she was giving a masterclass. Annie Leibovitz’s course in photography was truly inspirational. Focusing on content of the photographs. rather than camera settings.
