Jean is a portrait, event and wedding photographer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands who likes to travel around the world to take pictures.
Photography is about capturing beauty, capturing emotions and building memories.
Jean is my first name and Juanistyle is my name as an artist. My parents come from The Democratic Republic of Congo and I was born in Greece.
WHEN DID I START WITH PHOTOGRAPHY?
Well, it started in 1997 when I moved from Brussels to Amsterdam.
At that time, I found Amsterdam so different that I wanted to show my friends living in Brussels what I was witnessing there.
With time, photography became for me the best way to be in contact with the world around me and interact with people.
WHAT TYPES OF PICTURES DO I SHOOT?
Portraits, event and wedding photography are my main areas of expertise and without trying to be "the master of all trades", I am also shooting urban landscapes and fashion & beauty pictures.
HOW TO DEFINE MY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
I define myself first and foremost as an photo enthusiastic . The word "Enthusiastic" by its etymology means "inspired by the Divine".
What inspires me, what motivates me and what I like is capturing beauty, capturing emotions and capturing those unique moments that bring people together.
I am defining my photographic style as elegant, clean and yet sophisticated, precise in the composition and putting an emphasis on the colors and the textures.
