2019 - 2020 | head of product
I began my journey into the world of photography as a nightlife photographer for Wildschieters. I took on all the hours of shooting that I could, enduring long nights and challenging work conditions. As a result, there is not much that can startle me now.
After honing my skills as a photographer, I stepped into the role of team lead, responsible for client satisfaction and the working conditions of my team. Soon after, I was involved with the brand and product on a company level, working with the founder of Wildschieters in the office a few days a week.
Head of Product
My focus shifted to rebranding Wildschieters and elevating it from a group of nightlife photographers to a brand that offered a classier type of photography, including food photography. I took on the challenge of making Wildschieters the go-to photographer for high-end restaurants and event organizers.
As head of product, I managed the photo product and worked on ways to keep the company and its services relevant in a rapidly changing market. I re-designed the product into a monthly service, from concept to print work and sales, and was also responsible for maintaining the quality of our product. I established a food photography division, providing training and feedback to our photographers to ensure consistent quality.
In my role as team leader for the Eindhoven team of photographers, I was responsible for planning, communication with clients, and quality control. I translated client requests into briefings for the team, ensuring a balance between their demands and the availability of photographers. My focus on quality control ensured that all delivered photo sets were up to par with our high standards.
