A photograph of a live artistic performance must be as elegant, energetic and dramatic as the act and the artists who are bringing this performance to life. Dance or theatre photography is both a visual feast and a study of movement, body language and facial expressions. As a live performance photographer, I will capture pictures of dancers and comedians in mid-motion, freeze powerful expressions in time and highlight the skills of the artists and the spirit of the performance. You can use your images for PR and press releases, on social media, to promote future events, or as powerful visuals on your website, brochures, and other publicity material.
If you would like to take advantage of the expertise of a professional photographer during your next dance, ballet, or theatre show, contact me to discuss the possible options.
Capture the essence of your performance and showcase your artistic production with powerful, creative and thoughtful photos
I had a great time shooting with Melanie. She's just so friendly and professional. She will keep you at ease during the photoshoot that makes the picture looks natural. There's no dull moment when working with her. Plus points is she deliver the pictures ahead of agreed time. I strongly recommend her for everyone who wants to have fun while taking great photos in the Netherlands.
I can only say: Melanie is very flexible, dedicated and perfectionistic in her work. She prepares very well and leaves almost nothing to chance.During our wedding preparations we had our first meeting. We got to know her in advance, and she helped us to improve our wedding schedule. Very nice.Several weeks before our wedding, Melanie travelled from Amsterdam to our wedding venues. Together we decided what the best location was for group photo's (in terms of daylight and group size) and for our brides couple photo's. Superb.During the wedding she was Melanie was very energetic and enthusiastic - for over eight hours straight. Her pictures are beautiful, and she even made some small videos for us.We are very happy with the 1700 photo's 🙂
Melanie recently took photos during our party, with great results. I think taking pictures of people dancing in a dark room is the hardest thing there is, but Melanie managed it. And how! All photos razor sharp, people laughing, friends dancing, well lit. Thank you very much for this lasting memory.
Truly made our first photoshoot experience a dream 🙂 you both were lovely, funny and made the photoshoot natural and fun! Thank you so much for everything, when I visit Amsterdam I will definitely be seeing you ☺️

For our PR workshop of the German National Tourist Board in September 2020 (corona-proof edition) we worked together with Melanie and were more than satisfied! Melanie is very professional, the planning and communication before the event was uncomplicated and fast. She brings her own ideas, but also pays close attention to what the company wants. The results are really great - Melanie definitely has an unique way of capturing people's emotions. Thanks again for your great work and see you at our next event!
