Dutch Photographer in Scotland

The Dutch Photographer Vincent Hartman of STUDIOVHF moved to the central belt in Scotland in the summer of 2016. The studio in The Netherlands is now run by Thomas Feickens and Iris Hartman, both graduates from the 'Fotovakschool', college for applied photography in Apeldoorn.

The studio specialises in commercial and advertising photography, interior photography, product photography, corporate and portrait photography.

Vincent studied commercial and advertising photography at the University of Arts (Fotoacademie) and started VHF (Vincent Hartman Fotografie) in the City of Zwolle in the early nineties. VHF at the time focussed on the market for portrait and wedding photography. When the photography industry turned digital Vincent pursued a career in marketing and sales, as he also has a degree in Economics and Marketing. During this career Vincent and his family lived in Northampton England for a number of years to set up the UK subsidiary of Dutch office seating manufacturer BMA Ergonomics. It is from this period that he knows the Scottish commercial interiors company Amos Beech. In the 10 years period after that the family was living in the village of Heino (near Zwolle) where VHF re-appeared with the brandname STUDIOVHF, targeting the market for commercial photography. Now Vincent has reversed his career again and joined Amos Beech as Marketing Manager. At Amos Beech, Vincent will also take care of the interior photography of finished projects as well as other photography for the purpose of the marketing communication of the company. Amos Beech is stategically located in Falkirk right between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

So Vincent can now be classed as a professional photographer that is employed. It is therefore that Vincent himself will not be able to take on any large photography assignments in Scotland. If however Vincent or his Dutch counterparts, Iris and Thomas will accept photography assignments in the central belt or anywhere else in Scotland we will  charge professional fees:)

Product photography Scotland

At STUDIOVHF we like to be challenged by the more demanding clientele. The photographers pride themselves with high quality and high resolution photography of a great variety of products. The products range from design furniture, clothing and fashion, cosmetics, bottles, lighting but also agricultural products, packaging, electronics and parts. STUDIOVHF is an established fotostudio based in The Netherlands and Scotland. As we are in the process of moving it is currently not practical to take on any jobs for product photography in Scotland. We will let you know as soon as our studio is ready. Below in the carousel you can get a quick impression.

Interior photography Scotland

For Scottish leading office interiors company Amos Beech and the underfloor heating company Incognito Heat Co, we photograph the interiors of commercial real estate like offices, schools and public buildings. We take great care in the translation of a 3D environment into an appealing and graphically correct flat 2D image. We ensure that perspectives are natural and that vertical lines remain vertical, even with high or low camera standpoints. For the control of contrast and colour we use a combination of both analogue (adding light) and digital techniques in post processing. Below in the carousel you can get a quick impression.
