Well.... Let me reflect on a wonderful and exciting day! Saturday the 5th of April I hired a studio in my hometown.... And what a studio it was!!!!! It was an amazing space with a gigantic white round wall, great backdrops and the technology.... The geek inside of me was really happy with everything!
13 models showed up.... A great variety of people! Belly dancers, cosplayers, body builders, a dog...
A LOT OF PEOPLE I can tell you!

once set up I started shooting and it instantly felt like I was where I was supposed to be... I missed working in a studio and at first I was afraid I would completely forget everything... But while working it all came back and dang... I nailed it! I'm super proud on all the results... Slowly most of them are being uploaded to my Facebook account (see link below) but I'm also sharing many pictures here :)

I dedicate this blog to some of the great results of the session day! I hope you like it.... Comments are very welcome and wanted :)

My name is Cynthia Veekens and I am the founder of Merdahn PhotoGraphy. Ever since I can remember, I have been a creative person and have always been busy with crafts, drawing and visualizing things. When my parents gave me their camera for the first time I just could not stop taking thinking of the magic that could happen! I was finally able to let people see the world I saw it! I took many pictures with that camera until I decided I wanted one of my own…. And I took that camera EVERYWHERE.

In 2004 I got introduced with music-photography and my first ever photopit experience was with the Dimmu Borgir gig in the 013 in Tilburg (The Netherlands) and ever since I was addicted to make reports of concerts. I tried to avoid the cliché shots of the musicians and sometimes with success! I have made many pictures of many bands during all sorts of festivals and concerts. Then I wanted a new challenge….

I started out with a photography school to enhance my technical and conceptual knowledge about photography and visualization. I changed my photography skills from ‘pressing the button’ into ‘pressing the shutter and making the photograph’. In 2009, I graduated as a documentary photographer with the “My Name is Cocaine” series plus with a specialization in portrait photography. Ever since I decided that, I never want to be a ‘normal’ portrait photographer who takes pictures of people smiling. Thanks to my documentary background, I was able to tell stories with single images… In addition, I try to implement that into my own work….
