Eric van Vuuren is an experienced Photographer & Filmmaker from the Netherlands.
At the age of 21, I started my career as a freelance photographer and filmmaker, but my fascination for images started way before that. I was born and raised in Spijkenisse, a small town near Rotterdam. When I was sixteen years old, I started to see the beauty of images and photography and I began with creating abstract images, flyers and banners for various events. Many times, I ran off with my parents’ simple point and shoot camera to feed my creativity. That is where it all began.
In 2008, after I graduated from the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam, I did an internship at Autovisie, a magazine by De Telegraaf, the biggest Dutch newspaper. I photographed the newest cars and I combined that with another study at the Fotovakschool. A year after that I started freelancing and since then I have been working for various companies, brands and magazines.
As a freelance photographer and filmmaker, I can help you with creating content (photo and video), commercials and interesting workshops and seminars. I am always transparent about what I can or cannot do. It does not matter if it is a small production with a small crew or a big production where I have to take the lead: I always communicate open and honest about the costs and possibilities. As a self-directing photographer and filmmaker, I know what is needed to finish the job in the best way possible and I can achieve the greatest results, even with limited resources.
The last few years I have been working for all the major automotive brands, which brought me all around the world. From the Australian Outback and Death Valley to the freezing North pole and the boiling hot desert in Dubai. My work has been displayed in numerous newspapers, magazines, websites, TV shows, car dealerships, the International Film Festival and much more. I love what I do and I hope I can continue to do this my whole life. I am constantly stretching my creativity and I have a big passion for the technology behind all of it, so I am always on top of the newest innovations.
To give back to the community, I am sharing many tips and tricks about photography and video on my own YouTube account. When I was younger, other creators were a big help and inspiration for me, so I am proud to say I can do the same now for others. For the time being, my videos are only in Dutch.
