Maartje Roos (1986) doesn’t take pictures, she creates images.

In both commissioned and free work, her narrative images are all manifestations of creating her own reality. This makes her demand the utmost of her creativity. An image always starts with a picture in her head. That picture will be transferred into a photo. This is not only a matter of quickly taking a photo; it is a long term process in which she is in charge of everything. Location, models, clothing, lighting, shooting and editing are all part of the process. She often creates one photo out of multiple photos, using the digital palette and her ability to empathize. She adds and omits, balancing on registering and directing a photo. What remains is her image. Reality or fantasy, that is hard to tell. 

That image can also be your story as a person, company or brand.
A photographic image that tells exactly what you had in mind. As a carrier of emotion, as decoration, as a way to convey information, or as visual support.
It is possible that we do the whole production for you. Such as organizing the appropriate location (s), models, catering, business (property and model) or exemptions.
