ElisaJo shownight 2018
This was the first pole related event I photographed again after a long but well needed break in my photography work after my maternity leave. This shownight was from ElisaJo schools at the north of the country. I was sitting a bit too far for my liking but was still able to capture the great performances from all the students at this nice theater. Thank you for inviting me!
Once upon a time… Hanka Venselaar organised, for the second time, Pole Evolution. A beautiful show featuring different school from the Benelux, where every performance is a story following a particular theme, this year, on (fairy) tales. What’s more? She takes it in a beautiful theater of Nijmegen and has a great team for the organisation. It gives a beautiful show, fun and always a pleasure to be the official photographer there :-)!
For once I didn’t have much to travel to cover an event as it was happening right in my own city: Eindhoven. SPV Blue is the pole dance student association from the TU/e and they gave their first yearly representation at Dynamo. Great shows, well done girls! Here are the pictures.
Firelily Competition is another nice competition for all levels and age in the Netherlands in a big sport hall, nicely arranged with a scene for the occasion. The main organisator is a super sweet woman, who put this off during her maternity leave, WOW! Alas the lighting this year was poorly arranged, with only 2 small pink spots which was terrible for photography. I asked to arranged the light a bit differently and did my best with the conditions. I think the participants were still happy with these memories :-). Check them out here.
A new comer on the dutch Competition scene : ADC Competition, organised by Amanda to promote her new studio. She started big with quite some categories, succesfully! It was a pleasure to be invited as a photographer. Check out the pictures here.
What a shownight once again at Pole Dance Factory Amsterdam this year, organised by Tatjana van Onna. The show was in a beautiful theater and full of great performances by students and teachers. Really lovely being the official photographer once again. Check out the pictures here.
Check out my selection of the pictures from Miss & Mister Pole Gym 2016 organised at the dutch sea side by Marieke Maas. A lovely competition for all level in a very nice atmosphere & theater. I think I may participate in it once!
Street pole reportage
For this first edition of Amsterdam Pole Camp, Tatjana asked me if I could photographed some memories for her participants. We walked around Amsterdam city for some pole street fun in the parc, taking pictures of all theses crazy polers enjoying the oudoors. Here a small selection from my favorite pics of the two groups. It wasn’t a photoshoot but just a reportage of a fun afternoon with these girls!
