about

Hi, I am Monique, winery & luxury home photographer. With more than 7 years of business experience in the travel & hospitality industry, I help entrepreneurs and businesses in this industry to strongly establish their online identity. Besides taking beautiful photos, I do this by sharing tips about photography and social media and by offering 1-on-1 sessions.

 

With my passion for visual storytelling, I created various visual stories on my website and on Instagram, where you can also participate in my wine quiz every Friday. Do you have any questions? Feel free to ask!

About my photography

I am a photographer of wineries, luxury homes and businesses in the hospitality industry. I create visuals that represent properties in the best possible way. My holistic approach to storytelling is an important part of my work. I strive to make people feel ‘I have to be there'.

 

The information that you can tell through a photo or video is endless. I want to tell a clear story with the right mix of detail-, total- and aerial shots, made with an eye for the smallest details. 

I love to photograph authentic situations that happen organically, without interrupting the situation. I love to let people do their work or activity and let them be in the flow. While I do this it is possible that I communicate with people about their work to understand the process of what they are doing. I love to make them feel comfortable with me and my camera. I love working with natural light.

A little more about me...

I live temporarily in the Netherlands and I work mostly in Southern Europe, where I lived for 6 years (Provence - France & Tuscany - Italy).

I am enthusiastic, adventures and curious, always happy to dive into a new adventure.

This is me dancing,

I still love to dance

I enjoy the little things in life, like...

A flag of birds flying over me while flying synchronously together

eating fresh delicious food

A beautiful shadow on a wall

Being hooked by a book

Being in the zone while I am photographing

A rainbow and even better... two rainbows next to each other

Getting a face massage

A pink sky

Looking at high grass while waves of wind blow over it

A song that gives me the thrillings

I love double numbers and see them everywhere around me every day

A puppy on the street running to me

Meditation

Walking in nature

 

I love to discover new restaurants

And I have made a list on Google maps of my favorite restaurants in Tuscany - Italy and Florence - Italy. I have also made a list of beautiful wineries in Italy.

Here is a list of my favorite places on Ibiza

You can save (and share) the links on your Google Maps and enjoy these lovely places as well.

Since 2019 I started to make special videos for Instagram, you can see an Instagram video here

See you soon?

Love, Monique
