Jaap van den Beukel is a Dutch photographer based in Barcelona. Until a few years ago, he worked as a freelance photographer for advertising and design agencies in England, the Netherlands and Belgium. His work has been used for several applications, including annual reports and other b2b products.

More recently Jaap has become involved in staged photography, shooting people, portraiture and fashion assignments. His subjects are photographed in settings where both background and model are equally important, and his way of lighting a set gives a surrealistic atmosphere. The results have been used in campaigns for advertising agencies as well as several personal projects. Over the past few months, Jaap completed campaigns for clients RET, Forbo and AGFA, and throughout 2008 he put a lot of effort into his personal project entitled 'Gross'.

Clients include: Unilever, Shell, AGFA, Danone, SenterNovem, Nestlé, Forbo, RET, Stivoro, ING, SNS Reaal, SNS-Bank, GGD, CNV, City of Rotterdam, ZLM, Olympia, Sigma, AEB, Frigoglass, EVD, Belastingdienst.
