Edsger (roughly pronounced as ed-sker) was born
in Amsterdam in what seems like a different century now.
When he got his first 35mm camera he
started playing with portraiture, practicing mostly
on family members who quickly got tired of it.
He kept camera companies in business by collecting
just about every type ever made, from tiny minox pocket
cameras to a large Cambo studio camera that can take
8x10 inch negatives. He setup his first professional
studio in Amsterdam, before graduating college with a PhD in
After his move to California, Edsger build himself a new studio and pledged to become the top headshot photographer in LA (as a modest first goal, leaving world domination for later).
Edsger enjoys finding the beauty and inspiration in people, seeking moments of Zen. Most of his headshots focus on the eyes of the sitter, and his glamour shots try to find the unexpected, and visually most striking images. He is inspired by the images, and the attention to detail, of photographers like Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Arnold Newman, and Yousef Karsh. Many of Edsger's photos, especially when seen as larger than life prints, are breathtakingly beautiful.
