The weeks before christmas were packed with finals and presentations and I have to admit I spent far too much time in the library. Nonetheless I was also working on a great project for BRÛT AMSTERDAM, a vintage industrials store in Amsterdam. For a few days I captured their salvage hunts, the careful process of restoring the products in the workshop and the beautiful atmosphere in their store in the Witte de Withstraat 126 in Amsterdam West. Going home for christmas I had the chance to use my brothers professional editing programs and a few days ago we finally published the finished project.

It was great working on such a challenging but fun project and I am looking forward to working on more projects like these in 2017. Every time I get to photograph an event or do a shooting it just makes me so happy and excited and shows me that although it definitely is quite hard work sometimes and the pressure of getting good enough outcomes is high one of the best things to happen in life is to realise that you are able to (at least somewhat) professionally do what you are passionate about. And that working does not seem like working anymore if you’re doing what you love to do.

Back in Amsterdam with quite a relaxed month ahead (cheers to a four-weeks Spanish course before the next semester starts) I am super ambitious and excited and am currently planning many more things to blog about. Next week Scopophilia is coming up, the January edition of the arts festival we have been organising last June (click here for the post) and I hope I’ll get to take some nice photos again (fingers crossed for acceptable light in the venue). As said in my last post I also will try to get out of Amsterdam much more often, needless to say I’ll carry my camera wherever I go.
