The evolution of a photographer.

It’s been a while since I got my first photo camera… 1998 actually. I was studying Japanese language and culture in Leiden and enjoying my life as a student. One of my teachers challenged me to participate in a Japanese speech contest, organized by the Japanese Embassy in The Hague. Practicing makes perfect so after a lot of ‘blood, sweat and tears’ I participated. I can’t remember what it was about anymore, however I do clearly remember winning the second price. Completely overwhelmed and incredibly happy I won a Nikon Pronea APS camera. Wow! What a difference that made, compared to my dad’s old analogue photo camera. Ever since that moment, winning the camera, my interest in photography grew and grew.Well, it’s been a long time since 1998. Many images and experiences later, I am changing my future, I am following my dream. Starting my own company ClaudiasCamera. The best thing so far….! Let’s embark on this journey together.

Let’s get this started!

Today is the day! I am following my dreams and have set up my own photography company. Will I survive as a company, will I be able to grow as a photographer beyond… wherever? Not sure, but so far the whole process has been a great experience.

Looking forward to my first failures, mistakes, unsharp images, you name it… all the things that can go wrong…. But I will survive, and learn, each and every day! And that’s great πŸ™‚
