Commissioned Work.

Since my start in 2013, I had the pleasure to work on challenging assignments for a variety of clients.

I am a lens-based artist producing visual imagery for the cultural industry. I have created photography and videos for newspapers and magazines, fashion designers, social institutes and the entertainment industry. Recently I was awarded the audience award of De Kracht van Rotterdam 2019.

Reviews.

Kiki Bonanza solicited the services of Rik to make a video clip. It started with a nice brainstorm session a few months before the shooting. The meeting went smoothly and we felt like Rik understood what we wanted. Shooting the clip was very fun and exciting, a breath of fresh air. He understood what we wanted and added that pizzazz you expect when hiring a creative professional.

The communication in between periods went well, he makes time, listens and was very quick in answering when we had questions or concerns regarding the final product. All in all, we couldn’t be happier with the result and the overall smoothness of working together.

– Laura & Shany, Kiki Bonanza
