Niels Boon


while studying industrial design niels discovered his fascination for moving pictures.
as a student he could go to the local cinema twice a week and so he did.
all the classics became part of his vocabulary in this period.
still after three years he started as a student commercial photography at the royal academy in the hague.

but the moving images with its extra time dimension kept pulling.
after finishing the academy, he started working in the lighting departement, soon becoming a gaffer.

while working on dutch and international commercials in the lighting departement, he started to shoot very different projects, like punk music videos, ballet and tv idents.

since 1999 niels is shooting commercials, mixed with art projects, charity jobs, shorts and music videos.
the drive is to tell the story in strong images, whether it is for stunting action films or subtle soft emotions.

niels is based in amsterdam, speaks fluent english, as well as german and some french.
