How Studio Damon became a well established name in the industry of wedding photographers.
He wanted to become a fashion photographer, so, when he was just 16 years old, Damon Pijlman grabbed his moped and rode to a nearby photo studio in Wassenaar. ”Do you have work for me?”
Yes, they did, but becoming a fashion photographer does not happen overnight. The young Damon was also being sent to shoot weddings. His initial thought was ‘how boring’ but, to his great surprise, he found out it was fantastic. After 9 amazing years at the studio, Damon started his own in 2006. For a long time, he combined advertising and fashion photography with wedding photography.
Where the fashion industry only cost him energy, the wedding industry gave it back along with the liberating feeling of: ”I was there!”. Seven years ago, he made a decisive decision – he would become a fulltime wedding photographer.
The studio has several young professionals working for Damon, all with their own specialism and he partners with the best freelancers in his field. Their most recent work can be found here. Starting photographers can go there for an internship and for professional wedding photographers Studio Damon offers Mentoring and Workshops.
