Toplocatie voor topsegment. Wie de geschiedenis van juwelier Schaap en Citroen bestudeert, kan maar één ding concluderen: never a dull moment. Het juewliershuis bestaat dit jaar 125 jaar en timmert nog altijd energiek aan de weg. het jongste wapenfeit is de hypermoderne vestiging aan de Kruiskade in Rotterdam. Store manager Agnes Spek: “Collectie, interieur en serivce: alles ademt focus op de klant.”
De aarde telt 120 Chopard Boutiques. Acht jaar geleden opende de 87e uit de serie in Amsterdam, waar Arabel van Butzelaar en haar deskundige team de klanten ontvangen. De Boutique gunt de bezoeker een kijkje in het universum van Chopard, dat zich niet alleen tot horloges en juwelen beperkt. De boutique voelt aan als een huiskamer. Warm, gezellig en luxueus. Hier voelt de wereldburger die de Chopard-klant is zich al snel thuis.

To promote the Leisure Expertise and expand their customer service Holiday Inn Amsterdam contacted me to shoot a series of portraits. Each portrait shows the employee and the leisure they’re expert on. This way the Holiday Inn makes it easier for their customers to get the best possible information on certain interests from the right person. So if you’re new in the area, or even to this country, and have no idea where you should go for golf, wellness or shopping? Just find the right portrait and ask for that person to give you the best advice about where (not) to go.
Client: IHG / Holiday Inn Amsterdam
These portraits are currently on display at the Holiday Inn Amsterdam throughout the entire hotel. On selected locations the portraits are accompanied by a personal message explaining who they are and why they know so much about the specific subject.

Official opening Fabriek Delfshaven. After years of decay, the renovation of the ‘Fabriek van Delfshaven‘ was recently completed. Built in the early 1900’s by the Roeloff family, for dying clothes and later on used for dry-cleaning, as they found a way to make it affordable for the common people. It was a surprise to see offspring at the official opening. After telling about what it was like growing up, living next to the factory like riding a bike next to stockpiles of laundry, looking inside the factory through a window from their house, and blowing the steam whistle at the beginning and end of the labourday, they revealed the ‘first stone’ from 1907.

For the Fratello’s Rolex Daytona editorial photoshoot and end of year special we sourced this F1 racecar from 2007 .
When Rolex announced becoming the official timekeeper for the Formula 1 early December we thought it would be cool to do a Daytona-special here on Fratellowatches. For this occasion, we went out there and found this Formula 1 car of 2007 that has actually been used by Alonso. When you think of Rolex and Formula 1, the first watch that comes to mind is the Cosmograph Daytona. With its chronograph feature and tachymeter bezel this watch just breathes racing. Although Rolex produced chronograph watches since the 1930s, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona wasn’t introduced until the 1960s. The Daytona name was given to commemorate their sponsorship of races held on the Daytona Beach in Florida. Since we had a hard time time sourcing a race car from the 1960s we went way back in (Rolex) time and found one from the 1930s. The era where Rolex started making chronograph watches. The Rosengart car we’ve found is actually one of the first, if not the first, car to feature brake lights!

The Slaakhuys was built on the ruins of a building by renowned architect Berlage and is one of Rotterdams resurrection monuments of WWII. It was designed by Jo Vegter for the Arbeidspers (publisher) in the mid 50’s and first used as the office for newspaper ‘Het Vrije Volk’. (more…)
Unique experience, travelling to the Top of Europe by train!
During our vacation in Switzerland we went to Jungfraujoch, the top of Europe. We took the train from Lauterbrunnen to Kleine Schiedegg, an impressive ride up the mountains with fantastic views of the surrounding. There you can take the Jungfraubahn to the top of the mountain with a few stops to get used to the high altitude. Most of the ride goes straight through the mountain and stops at the ‘Berghaus’ from where you can go up to the Spinx observatory to enjoy a fantastic 360º view at 3571m. On the way back to the trainstation you go through a glacier with ice sculptures. (more…)
Shot during a day out with the Grönefeld brothers in their natural habitat for an article on Fratellowacthes.com. This photo was also published in Gentlemen’s Watch.
The name Grönefeld and the art of watchmaking have a family history spanning a hundred years, originating in the ancient town of Oldenzaal in the Netherlands. It is here, in a shop directly under the view of the ancient basilica church and its tower dating from 1240, that Johan Grönefeld began his career as a watchmaker in 1912. This marked the beginning of a small and highly talented dynasty of Grönefeld watchmakers which now sees brothers Bart and Tim Grönefeld carry the baton. (more…)
The Brienenoord bridge. Driving over 30K each year I cross the Brienenoord bridge quite often. When KWS Infra Rotterdam started their maintenance work on the Brienenoord bridge, they contacted me to shoot their work in progress. With this assignment I got to see the bridge from a totally different point of view. Standing on top gives you one of the best views over Rotterdam. (more…)
