Journal Entry: Wed Jun 11, 2014, 1:10 AM
Oh wow... I just realized it has been over 2 months since I updated this journal...
Well, I'm happy to tell you folks I am still alive and kicking and I have been very, VERY busy with all sorts of projects. Right now I am trying to finalize them all and start with new ones but in the mean time it has been a very hectic period for me! First of all, I started out a new business called K.I.D.S. (www.kinderenindestudio.nl) which is nothing more then child photography á la Cynthia. I've had a few sessions already and it is just amazing! Something light for a change and working with kids really makes me direct a shoot. Kids are not as 'shapable' as grown-up humans and so not understand the directions I give... So this is photography in it's purest form for me and it is all about the momentum... You should go and check the works I made for that on Facebook (www.facebook.com/kinderenindestudio)  or the website (www.kinderenindestudio.nl) ... Or wait... Maybe I can post some... Here?





   

(and don't worry, I have the written permission from all the parents to post these pictures online for publicity reasons)

So yeah, that is what I have been doing a lot these days... No cosplay photography, no serious documentaries just light headed, pure photography with KIDS.

And actually now I am lying to y'all because I have been making a videoclip about breastcancer (which is almost done), a report about a foot-doctor, attended the CSI Eindhoven as VIP (photographer). That is an international concours hippique (horse contests) and I've been planning new studio sessions for this Saturday (14th) with new models and groups! I am VERY excited about that and I am really curious what people come with for me to photograph. I can say that I know for sure that there will be a beautiful German Sheppard Dog, a baby and a bellydance group, so that will be interesting! :)



So, well... That was my update for now. I have to get ready for another session with K.I.D.S. in about an hour or so.
I would like it if you guys follow me on Facebook aswell because I am really more active there than that I am right here at DA.

Take care people and I might post another blog after this weekend!

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….
