"It's my favorite, in my home" - Anne-Marie van Dam.

Flying makes me incredibly happy, making contact with the landscape beneath me. It feels wonderful if I manage to transform that feeling into a beautiful Aerial Art Photograph of mother earth.

Click here for a movie with Anne-Marie and hér chosen Aerial Art Photograph of the Wadden Sea:
Luchtfoto van de Waddenzee. (in Dutch)

Anne-Marie van Dam opted for a broad Aerial Art Photograph made above the Wadden Sea, the Netherlands. Printed by master photographer Hans van Ommeren on a special canvas impregnated with paper. This unique copy fills, lengthens and gives space to Anne-Marie’s living room.

Five years later she is just as happy with this work of art as when it was just hung up.

Every person is unique!

The added value of a representative portrait. Quality time, just for you.

Shape, color, background, a piece of clothing, an attribute, everything is important. With one photo you show the whole message. I pay special attention to eyes, because eyes are the mirrors of the soul and show character. Most important thing that overshadows everything is the choice of light. For me Photography is playing with light. […]

The train to INFINITY and beyond

What is the impact of the ever-continuing science.

Breda-photo’s theme fits with the theme in the Dalai Lama’s speech: What is the impact of the ever-continuing science. Does it only bring progress? Or also unpleasant surprises?

How did I get the idea to fly?

Highlights in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is a rapidly changing city. In search of an overview I have seen quite a few roofs of Amsterdam. Working as photographer at Ruimte & Duurzaamheid, planning department of the municipality of Amsterdam from 1992. My work was very versatile and important material for zoning plans and project decisions. Studio work (portraits and scale models) […]

The world is my studio, Amsterdam my home. I am Mirande Phernambucq. Photography is my language.

Fascinated by water, air, earth and light, these elements take me where I should be. My agency is Hollandse Hoogte. I have also been a member of the aerial agency of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Paris.

At seventeen I was accepted at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in the Netherlands. The series I graduated with made me the first female winner of the Professional Photography Award.
