My story

My name is Rick van der Vlies, born 1996 and working as a commercial photographer. Based near Rotterdam.

As I started out with sports photography I have learned to capture a moment. When I grew as a photographer, I learned the art of advertising and lifestyle. Those elements combined taught me to not only freeze a fraction of life.. but to create a fraction of life!

I am an advertising, lifestyle and portraiture photographer. My image style can be described as crisp, energetic and structured.

Every job, every client is a new challenge and that is exactly what drives me in my work. New challenges, new rules and always getting the maximum result out of it!
