Thoughts and ideas from Truefie photographer Paulien:
Paulien Varkevisser herself is a designer who now mixes these skills with photography being into travel and tourism, architecture, interior, nature, child or family photography. She sais: “ With images, you can tell a story, convey a vision. I combine therefore like my experience as a designer with the care of photography and projects in outer city and landscape. Garden Photography and architecture topics are also included here. The photographing other cultures, cities and landscapes are very inspiring.”
According to Pauline the most popular photographic styles in Nijmegen are street photography, architecture photography and Nature-/landscape photography. These 3 because Nijmegen has a lot of interesting places. In particular, the new river park (opening 2016) has brought new inspiration. Nijmegen is surrounded by beautiful nature a stone's throw away (river Waal, Ooijpolder, the moraine on the east side of the city. The long dykes are very Dutch! But through Truefie.com its possible to find photographers for baby photography in Nijmegen as well as pet photographers..you just name it!
We asked Paulien how has Nijmegen inspired or influenced her personal photography work? “ I'm originally a landscape designer, so I love all the developments around the river and Waal front. I’m also inspired by the Instagram Walk group we have. Every month there is a mini shoot at an interesting place. We also meet and share photo’s at Facebook. I also like to come to ‘FotoBolwerk’ (Center for Photography) to work on long-term projects and meet other photographers.”
Photographer Paulien from Nijmegen also has some cool ideas on how to make photography life there more active: ’Nijmegen could certainly use a boost in the field of photography. At the moment we have ‘April photography month’ in the St. Stevens church and it would be great if such an event could return every year. That way we can see and meet more well-known photographers in special lectures and photo presentations. As Hans Devries of FotoBolwerk indicates too; why not start a street photography month? Local professional photographers and photo finishers should cooperate in these events. Maybe a local Photo Festival would be a great idea for photographers of Nijmegen.”
