Photo Sessions

📷 Hello! I am Dana Marin, a photographer interested in creating beautiful memories for people and capturing the essence of their personality and their craft. I’m based in Amsterdam & Alkmaar and available in the Netherlands.

I love capturing faces, expressions and moments. But above all, I love telling stories. The sessions I offer are like small explorations — of the place you choose for a setting and of yourself. They won’t happen inside a studio. We will go out somewhere or we will use as a background the place where your magic happens. We walk, chat, explore the place and your personality, we play, and we take photos. What is most important is to have a great time, to connect and, by the end of our meeting, wonderful photos will magically appear on my camera 😉

The photos I take are somewhere between cinematic and natural portraits. We will discuss in advance what kind of photos you would prefer, create a mood board; for bloggers and influencers, I am open to custom editing to have the photos match your existing portfolio.

My favourite part about being a photographer is that I can help people tell their stories through images: friendship, love, passion for what they’re doing, connection with certain places, trips to wonderful cities. I give people a few snapshots of themselves, of their lives or their work, that they can keep and cherish forever.

You can see below the types of sessions from which you can choose. You may have a look here to see some of my work so far or check out the portfolio.

I have experience in working with creative people and entrepreneurs (bloggers, actors, theatre directors, writers, herbalists – to mention just a few).

Testimonials:

“Although taking photos of myself is always quite stressful for me, I was so happy with a time I’ve spent with Dana. We were chatting and laughing and had a great time during our private photo shoot in Amsterdam. And although the time flew and it felt like I was just strolling around the city with a friend, the final result and the photos she’s created is excellent.” — Tea.
