Justin Bodenkamp

I WAS BORN IN 1979. AND GREW UP IN A SMALL VILLAGE IN THE NETHERLANDS. BESIDES MY PASSION FOR SKIING, I WAS INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY AS WELL AS PLAYING DRUMS.

AFTER MY PHOTOGRAPHY STUDY AT THE
ROYAL ACADEMY FOR ART IN THE HAGUE I STARTED TO WORK IN THE FILM INDUSTRY. MY KNOWLEDGE OF LIGHTING WAS SHAPED DURING THIS PERIOD WHICH BECAME A KEY ELEMENT IN MY WORK.
LATER IN MY CAREER I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE CRAFT OF EDITING. AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS WORKING AS AN EDITOR I DECIDED TO COMBINE MY KNOWLEDGE OF LIGHTING AND EDITING AS A DIRECTING D.O.P, SHOOTING "FOOD" COMMERCIALS, MUSIC VIDEO'S AND SHORT FILMS.
MY WORK COULD BEST BE DESCRIBED AS STYLISH & GRAPHICAL AND PERHAPS EDGY. ESPECIALLY IN THE FIELD OF FOOD ADVERTISING AND TABLE TOP SHOTS A PINCH OF IMPERFECTION MAKES IT REAL AND AUTHENTIC.
MY HOME TOWN IS AMSTERDAM. I LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS WITH MY FAMILY IN SWITZERLAND.
