Hi there,

First of all, thank you for visiting my website! Let me tell you who I am, what I do and how it all started. I grew up in Breda, the south of Holland. At the age of 17, I finished high school and began my study at the Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg.  After 4 years of training I graduated and replaced Tilburg for Amsterdam. Best city ever! My first job was as a dancer in the broadway hit musical Sweet Charity. Finally I could do what I always wanted: to be on stage. After Sweet Charity there was Jeans, Cinderella, High School Musical and my last musicaltheatre production Mary Poppins. After 5 years on stage I wanted a change. I quit musicaltheatre and focused  on my modelling career. 

 

 

 

I’ve been working both national and international and have done photoshoots, tv commercials and catwalk shows for many different brands like Emirates, Oger, Hilton, C&A, Tommy Hilfiger and Nike. 

I've started with photography in 2016 when at Bali for holidays. I fell in love with it instantly and started a photography course as soon as I got back in Amsterdam.. I focus on portrait and fashion photography and since January 2017 I have my own photostudio in Amsterdam. 

If you’d like to know more, if you have a questions or a comment, please feel free to contact me. Enjoy this website and I hope to see you here again soon.

Cheers,

Jaap Strijker
