Jaap van den Beukel Amsterdam photographers

Barcelona-based Dutch photographer, Jaap van den Beukel, has worked freelance for advertising and design agencies in the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium, shooting annual reports and b2b products. He currently shoots people, portraiture and fashion assignments for clients and personal projects.

Jaap's subjects are photographed in settings where both background and model are equally important, and his way of lighting a set lends a surrealistic atmosphere to many of his images. Over the past few months, Jaap completed campaigns for clients RET, Forbo and AGFA, and throughout 2008 put a lot of effort into his personal project entitled 'Gross'.

Clients include: Unilever, Shell, AGFA, Danone (Numico), Senternovem, Nestlé, Forbo, RET, Stivoro, ING, SNSReaal, SNS-Bank, GGD, CNV, The City of Rotterdam, ZLM, Olympia, Sigma, AEB, Frigoglass, EVD, Belastingdienst.

Personal projects include: 2006 - 'Once were Heroes', homeless people photographed as models. 2007 - 'Invisible', portraits of Dutch prisoners in Morocco. 2008 - 'Gross', theatrical images.

Jaap is represented in Germany by Xing and in Spain by Capetona.
