PROFESSIONAL WORKING EXPERIENCE

CREATIVE & PHOTOGRAPHER
A BIGGER CIRCLE, AMSTERDAM
AUGUST 2019 - MARCH 2020

I created new social media approaches and online campaigns based on the client’s current brand strategy in this role. I thought about new (social) concepts to tell new stories. I worked for clients like ANWB, Erasmus MC, Simyo, KPN, PostNL, and the agency. I was closely involved in making the concept for a podcast for Erasmus MC.

I worked out Simyo’s Christmas campaign (director, scriptwriting, and concept), was closely involved in making the concept for a podcast for Erasmus MC, and created social calendar concepts for all clients. I also wrote video scripts for campaigns, interviews, and social animations.

Being the primary photographer at the company, I was responsible for everything before and during the photoshoots; I was responsible for the concepts, set-dressing, styling, and photo-editing, and, of course, handling the camera.

Besides fulfilling these roles, I was a graphic designer. I worked together with the video editor and the illustrator by working out concepts into social posts.

CONTENT CREATOR
DORST&LESSER, AMSTERDAM

Working as a content creator, I was a photographer, video editor, and graphic designer. I created daily and monthly content for the Facebook and Instagram of Lidl, Action, Bourjois, Holland & Barrett, Renault NL, Nikon BE, Max Factor, Schweppes, Jagermeister, Becherovka, Alpro, Aperol Spritz.

For Action Beauty (Action), I was the creator and social media manager, making the monthly content proposal. I was in direct contact with the client and worked closely with them. As the designer, I made small graphics for social videos, worked on the Christmas campaign for SushiDaily, designed flyers, and worked on a campaign for Carnaval for Jagermeister.

As one of the photographers, I did product and model with humans and animals on a daily basis. I managed small productions where I was responsible for the scriptwriting and the editing of the content. 

Because of curiosity working as a producer, I joined a commercial shoot for Alpro. I helped with the preparations, cleaning, and managing the cast and crew.
