Bram Berkien is an active lifestyle photographer based in the Netherlands. iLHP wanted to gain insight as to what being an active lifestyle photographer entailed. Bram’s photographs capture the dedication and expressions of the athletes he shoots in his images. We are proud to have had the chance to share our exclusive interview with Bram and hope you appreciate the hard work and skill that is involved when shooting under these circumstances.
iLHP: Hi Bram, thank you for your time to answer some questions for us. How long have you been into photography?
Bram: About five years ago I got my first DSLR. I still remember promising to myself I wouldn’t put more money into it, not get another lens. That didn’t quite work out. Then a year later I started doing small assignments, which quickly grew into more serious projects. About a year and a half ago I finished my master’s degree of science and since then I’ve focused on photography. I felt like that was something I needed to do in order to live my life to the fullest, passing on a career as an engineer. Since I’ve decided to do this for a living I’ve been refining my niche and style.
