Elisabeth (1986) is a Haarlem based photographer, who won the VILA TALENT AWARD 2018 in the category photography and got nominated for the VIVA400 Award in the category creatives.

After successfully graduated at the Utrecht School of Arts, she applied for the photography department of the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam. After one year she decided to develop herself further as an autodidact. From that point, driven by imagination, curiosity and intuition, she got started in an organic way.

Working for many years in the fashion industry as a stylist & art director, she decided to follow her passion in photography.

In 2018 Elisabeth won the Vila Talent Awards for best photographer. Member of the international jury, Cara Schiffelers, Fashion Director at Dutch Marie Claire, found that “Like no other, Elisabeth embodies the pretty picture focus on the female look. Modern with a distinctive twist.”

"Elisabeth intrigued the jury immediately with her pictures. She has set herself apart with her photos, distinguished by the freshness that they radiate."

- Jury, Vila Talent Awards

Clients love her realistic and clean photos, distinguished by the freshness that they radiate throughout her whole ensemble. She works fast, is a team player, a light seeker, a traveller and big-time location shoot-lover.
