Liselotte Fleur Vollebregt, 1991.
Fashion & portrait photographer.
Photography studio in Rotterdam.
The search for perfection and imperfection. That’s exactly what inspires me. I love to capture models in a natural way while telling a story through fashion.
I’m Liselotte, a fashion and portrait photographer from the Netherlands. When I was only fourteen years old, I already knew that I wanted to be a fashion photographer. While reading many different fashion magazines, I was fascinated with the series of photographs in them. That’s what made me buy my first camera and I spend all my free time learning how it worked.
At age seventeen my dream came true: I got accepted at the Art Academy in Rotterdam. I learned so much: not only in school, but also besides that. I did many portfolio shoots to practice and to meet new, talented people. Photographing people really is my passion, especially the fashion and portrait genre.
Which shoots I love the most? Definitely the ones on a location with beautiful daylight. However, shooting in my own studio with my own equipment also makes me really happy. I always find it very important that the photographer is the one who controls the situation, not only when everything goes well, but especially when an unexpected situation arrives.
That’s one of the things people like about me on set: the fact that I’m always relaxed. I’m always listening to what the client wants and I surround myself with the best team members to do my job as best as possible.
When I’m behind the camera I’m always searching for little surprises. These I can find in my fascination for perfection, unexpected moments and working with daylight. I’m inspired by the beauty of people, better said, what I define as beautiful in a person. That is what makes them unique.
My dream is to work for leading fashion magazines and brands who want to make campaigns in an editorial way. In other words, selling by telling a story.
Right now, I’m making another dream come true: I’m writing a book for the starting fashion photographer. In this book I will tell you all about the camera settings, studio set-ups, how to work with teams and the business side of photography. The book will be written and printed in Dutch, but I’ll translate it to English as well, so in that way it can also be read as an English e-book.

BEHIND THE SCENES + VOICE OVER (NL)
big source of inspiration
Besides my stay in Milan where I studied at the art academy, I also expand my professional horizon on field trips for a couple of months to Los Angeles and smaller trips to Marrakech, Paris, Barcelona, Geneva and Rome.
These experiences of working with creative people from all around the world and making pictures at magical locations are a big source of inspiration for my work.
I studied photography at:
2009 – 2013
Accademia di Belli Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy.
2011 – 2012
Giving lectures about fashion photography.
Accredited work placement company for photography.
Referentie op diploma in 2013:
“Deze jonge fotografe is een modefotografe in elke vezel. In alle scènes die Liselotte opbouwt laat ze zien dat ze in de wereld van fashion fotografie thuis is. Ze selecteert haar modellen zorgvuldig en weet zich te omringen door mensen die allen op eigen vakgebied goed zijn: visagisten, modellen, modeontwerpers... De series die ze voor haar eindexamen in Frankrijk en Italië produceerde, getuigen van vakmanschap. Al tijdens haar exchange in Milaan weet zij internationale modebladen voor haar werk te interesseren. Liselotte Fleur is al een merknaam. Ze neemt geen foto's, maar maakt ze!”
– Willem de Kooning Academie –
I love that my job as a photographer doesn’t require me to be in a set place, I can work from anywhere! It is refreshing to see how another place or a beautiful location can inspire me.

When did you started with photography?
I started 12 years ago, when I was just 14 years old. I captured photos of our dog and the nature but soon I realized I wanted to create the same images as I saw in fashion magazines. Since then my love for photography started and 3 years later I got accepted at the Art Academy to study photography.
