About Joyce van Dijk

Hallo, ik ben Joyce van Dijk.
Mijn interesse in fotografie begon al op jonge leeftijd toen ik 16 was. Mijn vader had een oude film camera, een Canon Canonet 28, waarmee ik experimenteerde en  op zolder, waar ik de slaapkamer omtoverde tot donkere kamer, zelf mijn eigen foto’s afdrukte. Toen ik 18 was heb ik een jaar lang stage gelopen bij een professioneel fotolaboratorium waar ik op commerciële schaal negatieven af moest drukken op klein en groot formaat (ruim 3×4 meter) en waar ik diafilms moest framen. Ik heb hier altijd erg van genoten. De geur van C41 (kleur ontwikkelvloeistof) brengt goede herinneringen op. In mijn begin 30 stapte ik over naar digitale fotografie.

Ik heb de grafische school gevolgd en daarna de MTS Het St Lucas waar ik Reclame, Presentatie en Communicatie heb gestudeerd samen met Multimedia. Ik ben afgestudeerd aan het St.Lucas en ben daarna verhuisd naar London om daar te werken als webmaster en grafisch ontwerper voor TDK Systems Europe Ltd. In 2006 verhuisde ik naar Australië waar ik 12 jaar lang mijn eigen zaak gehad ID Photography (afgekort voor Illustrating, Design en Photography) later genaamd Joyce van Dijk Photography. In 2018 ben ik naar Nederland verhuisd om dichter bij mijn familie te kunnen zijn. Ik heb een internationale portfolio op mijn naam staan en heb verschillende prijzen gewonnen met mijn werk. Ik ben hier dan ook erg trots op omdat ik er altijd super hard voor gewerkt heb.

Mijn CV ziet er ongeveer zo uit:
