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.
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.
This year we started teaching our photography courses at the Amsterdam House of Arts & Crafts. A rustic and vibrant environment that sparks inspiration to those seeking to develop their photography skills. See upcoming events here: https://www.meetup.com/Amsterdam-Photo-Club/events/
