PHOTOGRAPHY

Starting my own photography business was a dream come true. But choosing an avenue within photography to focus on made it quite a difficult beginning. As there are so many directions you can go within photography, I had to choose what made the most sense for me from the start. I began my career as a photographer in Curacao, where I focused my work on weddings. Throughout my seven years working in Curacao, I had the privilege to shoot over 300 weddings. It was an excellent location for destination weddings and provided me with the experience to work with different nationalities, cultures, and personalities that taught me to be quick on my feet and focused on the job.

Now after a year living in The Netherlands, where weddings are not year round events, I found that using my experience for the commercial photography industry is also another excellent avenue. Together with the ideas from the client and my own experience in photography, we come together with various ideas, which we then narrow down to what works best for that specific company. Besides the commercial photography, I also love to do family shoots. I strongly agree that these are priceless pictures, bringing family together and creating moments and photos, which they carry along the rest of their lives. Together, these three different types of photography are summed up below. I am always open for new and different challenges, so if you have a special request please do not hesitate to contact me.

-Landal GreenParks-

Wij zijn blij dat wij Hans van der Post hebben kunnen toevoegen aan ons freelance fotografen bestand die onze parken vastleggen. Hans schiet voor ons zowel beelden van het product, onze accommodaties, als de pure beleving van een verblijf op onze parken. Dit doet hij vol overgave en passie. Zijn creativiteit is zeer goed zichtbaar in de beelden en hij begrijpt heel goed wat ons product is en welke beelden hierbij horen. Onze parken zijn zeer divers en keer op keer komen de USP’s van de parken mooi naar voren. Hans werkt heel zelfstandig en gaat samen met een modelfamilie op pad en levert ons de mooiste resultaten aan, dat is zeer fijn, zo hoeven we niet honderden beelden door om zelf een selectie te maken.  Hans is voor ons een fijne externe aanvulling van ons team!

-Familie Smits-

Als cadeau voor mijn ouders wilde we graag een fotoserie met onze familie. Opa, oma, zoon, dochter en kleinzoon…alle Smitsen op een rij. Hans heeft ons op een zonnige zondag in mei prachtig vastgelegd. Hij pakte perfect alle mooie momenten die zich voordeden. Met een kleine van ruim 1.5 jaar valt niets te regisseren, maar de fotoserie is een mooie afwisseling van portretten en spontane foto’s. Wij voelde ons enorm op ons gemak tijdens de shoot die een dik uur duurde. Er zijn heel veel mooie plaatjes in korte tijd uit voortgekomen en dat is ook fijn als je met een kind bent. Voor ons is het een prachtig document voor nu en later en gaan het volgend jaar gewoon weer doen!

-RACHEL APPEL 2013-

Hans was our photographer for our wedding in July of 2013 and did an AMAZING job! Living in the United States and planning a wedding in Curacao I was at the liberty of the wedding planner Francine to suggest who to work with for photography. Hans was very professional, and had the pictures to us two days later before we returned to the States. I have to say that I was very excited when we saw our photos because he did the most extraordinary job capturing the moments of our big day. I wish that we were able to use Hans for photography here as well! I highly recommend Wedding Photography Curacao!

-AUSTEN & ELIZABETH 2015-

We planned our vow renewal in Curacao for January 1, 2015. After searching through several photographers, we came across Hans’ beautiful photography. We knew right away that we wanted Hans to capture the moments of our renewal with his expertise of romantic and fun spots on the island, lighting, and his artistic eye. Hans was very prompt about getting back to us and was always easy to get in contact with, even though we lived in different countries. Upon meeting Hans, we were immediately relaxed and were able to enjoy every moment of our time behind the camera as well as his welcoming conversation. We are so thankful to have found Hans as our pictures turned out to be more than we had dreamed they could be with multiple locations and an array of scenery. If you are looking for a photographer to capture every romantic moment, Hans is the perfect fit!

-INGE & MICHEL 2015-

Vanaf het eerste moment was het contact erg goed en uiteindelijk hebben we 2 x met Hans samengewerkt, voor onze onze “engagement shoot” en trouwfoto’s. Hans is energiek, gepassioneerd en bijzonder getalenteerd in zijn vak. Het was voor ons van cruciaal belang dat wij de juiste fotograaf vonden die zich vooral richt op spontane momenten en minder op gemaakte poses en daarbovenop dit weet te realiseren van een behoorlijke afstand zodat je steeds het gevoel hebt dat je eigenlijk samen bent. Wij zijn Hans bijzonder dankbaar voor de prettige samenwerking en hebben echt genoten van onze trouwdag. Alles wat we vooraf verwachtten van onze fotoshoot is ruimschoots overtroffen….en de manier waarop dat ging was perfect: casual, ongedwongen en met de nodige humor.
