How To Nurture Your Creativity Back To Life

This month’s quote is not by a photographer but by a writer. Oddly enough I never read anything by Maya Angelou but this quote has always had a special place in my heart. Because it’s so profoundly true. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” The other day I was teaching a photography workshop with a deep focus on creativity. We talked about our relationship with creativity, memories ……

How to Navigate the Library Module in Lightroom

Lightroom fundamentally changed the way I post-process my images. When I started in digital photography there was only Photoshop. And yes I could do great things with my images in Photoshop. However, Lightroom is the game-changer. It saves me a ton of time, it doesn’t require huge amounts of memory and it runs a tight ship.

Photography Is My Life

This month’s interview is especially beautiful for me since the person being interviewed is not only an amazing, unique photographer, she is also my number one example in life. The person sharing her story today with you is Karin van Mierlo, an artist, a teacher but above all, my mom. She always had the feeling that she didn’t choose photography, photography chose her. 

I’m Karin.

A photographer bringing 25+ years of experience to your table.

Dedicated to teaching you how to capture your wonderful world in expressive photography using ANY camera.

Because honestly…..? It’s not about the camera.

It’s about your vision!

“You Can’t Use Up Creativity. The More You Use, The More You Have.”

– Maya Angelou


“You have exceeded my expectations, thank you. I feel way more confident and ready to experiment with my smartphone now, this was very, very long overdue. Bravo on a job well done, I feel inspired and ready to go out and photograph everything I have ignored for such a long time.”

-Herman, Fabulous Phone Photography


“Karin has a playful approach and a warm personality that gives you all the space you need to get to know your own camera. And you learn how to put your own perspective into the image. I would recommend her as a teacher to everyone that’s willing to really know what photos are about.”

-Fleur, One-on-One Mentoring

Learn by doing

“It’s a great course where you really learn how to make good pictures! It is user-friendly, I had fun doing it, and now I know how to use my iPhone to make good pictures. I really liked the combination of the theory and the assignments. I learned by doing. I learned a lot in a short period of time.”

-Wilma, Travel iPhoneography for Instagram

Personal and funny

“I started this course to get a clear view (again) on Instagram. In personal, clear, brief (yes, not a thousand words per lesson) and kind of funny way you learn the finishing touch of a great Instagram account with how to find hashtags, how to schedule your posts and how to create a good looking feed. I am ready for Instagram 2019.”

-Demi, From Instagram Newbie to Instagram Star
