The end of 2017 is fact! Looking back at the goals I set for 2017 in my previous blog post (end of 2016), I feel like this year rushed by so fast. Especially because I haven’t even been able to fulfill most of the goals I set for this year. One thing I really wanted to do was shoot more personal projects, well guess what… I only did like two personal projects this year. 2017 did bring me a lot of joy though. Especially because I got to shoot 6 weddings. And found out that weddings are definitely a thing I want to focus on in the future. But i’m sure it won’t be my main thing to photograph. I’m not going to reflect on all the goals I set for 2017, I’m just going to set up a new list of goals and show you my favourite work from this year. Enjoy!
Of course I want to thank all my clients again, for their trust in me in 2017 and I look forward to shooting more next level things in 2018.
Here’s a list with things about 2017 worth mentioning:
– At the start of 2017 I had a great trip to the USA to shoot a wedding at the Islamorada keys in Florida
– I did another Marrakech trip to shoot fashion portfolios for designers from the Fashion Academy in Amsterdam and Eindhoven
– I shot a total of 6 amazing weddings
– This year I received bigger assignments, not only requiring me to take pictures, but also think about the concept and shoot pictures matching a certain style
– I started shooting more and more analogue 35mm and bought 2 medium format cameras, but I should really shoot more on film
– STILL DIDN’T FINISH MY STUDY, UGH!
My goals for 2018:
– Finish my study, priority number 1
– Shoot more personal projects, but really..
– Travel back to Thailand for 2 months and then visit Japan
– Start searching for a way to set up an office or a studio
– Release a photo book with pictures from my Thailand travels, with a print shop and an exposition
– Release a photo book about Maastricht through my eyes
– Do more city trips for a creative boost
I’ve seperated the gallery in Personal Work, Film Photography, Commercial Assignments & Weddings to keep it clear.
