Karin van Mierlo
Professional Photographer with 25+ years of experience.
Welcome to my profile!
Trained as a photographer in the analog days of photography I have a strong foundation in the theoretical and technical aspects that make a photograph stand out. My bachelor degree in Fine Arts and Photography gives me a strong creative background and still helps me every day to deepen my vision.
I am specialized in travel photography, reportage photography, humanitarian photography, street photography and family documentaries.
A people photographer pur sang I’m driven to capture the unicity, strength, and beauty of every human on the planet. As a humanitarian photographer, my one goal is to create powerful images of people rising above their circumstances and to tell authentic stories of courage, resilience, joy, hope, and humanity.
My tasks as a photographer are:
equipment management and maintenance
handling different types of cameras and lenses, including smartphone cameras
(in person) interviews with people after the first contact
establishing a strong connection with the subjects during photographing
applying the right photography tools for different circumstances
handling different cameras and lenses, including smartphone cameras
data backup, selecting, post-processing and exporting
uploading to clients and websites
writing captions and descriptions
Out of a strong desire to help aspiring photographers create compelling images of all our astounding planet has to offer I love to share my vision, skill, and experience in online photography courses.
I deeply believe that it’s not the camera that creates a beautiful picture, it’s the person behind the camera. It's about your skills, your vision and your unique experiences as a human being.
That’s why my motto is: “It’s not about the camera, it’s about your vision.”
I’m so happy you’re here and I truly hope you’ll have a lot of fun learning the language of photography!
