"What I can do for your brand? I'll listen to your story and keep in mind your ideal client all the time."
Liselotte Fleur, 1991.
Fashion Photographer / Modefotograaf

What I can do for your brand? I'll listen to your story and keep in mind your ideal client all the time. During the shoot you can see the results immediately on my laptop. You know what to expect and what we can change with the team to create the perfect campaign together. Both on location and in the studio I work with professional equipment and we always focus on the best results so your items will look amazing in every single shot! I would love to visit your office and talk about the possibilities to see how we can create the next campaign or lookbook for your brand.
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. I love to capture models in a natural way while telling a story through fashion.
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.
I also made another dream come true: I wrote a book for the starting fashion photographer, called: The Fashion Camera. 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.

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:
Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
2009 – 2013
Accademia di Belli Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy.
2011 – 2012

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.
