I am a self-shooting director and photographer. This is my blog and portfolio.

I have been working as a full-time self-employed creative since 1999, mainly as the founder and creative director of award-winning agency Pixillion.

Photography

Besides shooting commercial work for brands, agencies and individuals, I specialise in portraiture and fashion with a lifestyle flavour.

Most of my work on this site is shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a set of Canon lenses. I process images in Adobe Camera Raw, usually from one or two presets that I developed with one of the VSCO films as a basis.

I'm a member of the Royal Photographic Society and co-founder and editor of photo journalism site Make-A-Place. Additional commercial film work can be found on my agency's website pixillion.com.

Films

I produce, direct and edit films of my own and for brands. My film work ranges from non-fiction digital content to commercials, narrative shorts, promos, branded content, TV programmes and music videos. Whatever the project, I’m always aiming to produce something cinematic and unique that connects with people on an emotional level.

My cinematography work is predominantly shot on my Sony PXW-FS7. I’m big on grading and I use Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve to create the looks I’m after.

If you have a project in mind, please get in touch.

Remco was and still is a joy to work with - he has since become Brown in Town’s official photographer. He is unnervingly calm and laid back, not to mention focused. This focus produces superb images, which have for several years portrayed the essence of our brand.
