My name is Christine Mooijer and I am a photographer
Art has been a huge part of my life. As a child, I found a way to express myself through drawing. Drawing evolved to graphic design, which I studied for four years at the Mediacollege Amsterdam.
Eventually, my love for photography grew bigger than my love for graphic design. During my time there, I started with concert photography, for online magazines focused on alternative music. I had the chance to photograph some of my favorite bands, like The Offspring and All Time Low. My interest then slowly shifted towards portrait and fashion photography.
Because of this, I started at the University of Applied Photography (Fotovakschool Amsterdam) in 2014. My love for graphic design and illustration is far from over; I like to combine these with my photography. Photography for me is writing stories. Writing my own reality, my own world. I’d like to show you this world through pictures, but make you a part of it as well.
I am based in Volendam, a small town only half an hour away from the city Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
