Next Meetup

Figure Skating Event (Photography/Film) in The Hague!
Figure skating photography in De Uithof in the ice hockey 'dome' on Saturday the 12th of January 2019! General Information: Training starts at 10:30, for the skaters. The skaters are from the clubs "Amaranth" and "IJsFun". Some of them are beginners, some of them more advanced. The trainers will let the groups know in advance that there will be photographs made, so that there are no questions about us. The whole idea is that we have fun making photos, and the good ones we share with the skaters later (after possible editing) with the help of an online gallery or Google drive. The photos will be shared at the highest quality possible - they might be used for promotion of figure skating in the Netherlands (by the skaters or the clubs). Credit will be given in any case of course! Since there is no money involved or earned this will be on a voluntary basis, but of course this will benefit the photographers as well (portfolio wise). Please RSVP if you are serious in joining the event so the organizers can calculate the amount of photographers/filmers vs the skaters and so on. We meet at 10:00 at the information desk in De Uithof. Then we can proceed to the ice hockey hall, where you can choose your preferred location to shoot your pictures. More information will follow in january 2019 After the shoot (or when we are thoroughly cold) we can drink a cup of coffee/hot chocolate together at the café of the venue. For those that RSVP, the organizers are looking forward to meet all of you!

What we're about

Hello fellow photographers & filmmakers!

What is The Dutch Photography & Filmmaking Meetup ( all about?

First of all: it's open for everyone, both amateur and professionals! Like:

- Photographers

- Filmmakers

- Models/Actors

- Photography/Film enthousiasts

- Screenwriters

- Directors

- Enthousiasts that are interested in Photography, Film/ Filmmaking or even better both

Who are we?

John Bakker and me (Joris Maas) are originally both graduated as photographers and in the past years we also started to film when DSLR's got this feature as well. Independent of eachother, we had the same ideas about photography and film and how to get both disciplines together in a nice way.

We hope more people will join the group (so, invite all your friends/family that are interested in photography and film) so we can organize bigger meetings in the Netherlands and invite speakers from the industry.

Also creating content together, talk about it or share work and knowledge with eachother is very important.

Other ideas to consider are:

- organizing photography/film trips to different places

- Giving and following workshops (i.e. if you are filming with quadcopters, you could tell people something about it)

- Attending exhibitions together as a group (FOAM, Fotomuseum Rotterdam, visiting EYE for a movie...)

- Bring photographers and filmmakers closer to eachother (Timelapse photography results in a timelapsevideo for example)

- New media like 360 photography and video for VR headsets like Gear VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

More important:

- Soon......maybe your idea(s)?? Let us know!

Soooo......if you have idea's not mentioned above, please comment in the forum part of this Meetup Group.

Let's make it happen as Dutch community! Meetups will be mainly organized in Amsterdam or Rotterdam so everyone can attend fairly easy. A more centralized city like Utrecht is also a possibility of course!
