My name is Suzan Alberts and I live in Rotterdam, The Netherlands! When I was a young girl my parents moved to Curacao and took me with them. There my passion for the unknown started growing. I loved exploring new places, finding the hidden paths on the side of the road and I loved to experience new things. Always with my camera by my side. A small compact camera that I took everywhere.
When I grew up my goal was to work in the film-industry in Los Angeles, like a lot of people! I loved to dream away in movies and pictured myself working on beautiful filmsets. That´s why I decided to start with my Media and Entertainment Studies in my hometown! During my studies I had the opportunity to do an internship and this resulted in an amazing internship in Los Angeles at Dick Clark Productions, a company known for The Golden Globes, Billboard Awards & various other award shows such as the ACMA’s and The Streamy Awards. I had the time of my life and after I came back in The Netherlands, I started to develop my creative skills more and more.
After I graduated in 2015, I started working as an online marketeer for Dutch Basics. I took photos for their social-media outlets, wrote blogs for their website and helped with PR-activities and events. I even went to Paris Fashion Week with Dutch Basics. That is where my passion for photography started to grow. At Dutch Basics I was introduced to Fashion Photography and I enjoyed it greatly. After 6 months of working for Dutch Basics, I thought it was time for a Master Studies at Utrecht University to continue my dream to work in film. My Master Studies, however, was only books, reading and history so after 7 months I decided to quit my studies and continue working. I started working for My Brand Amsterdam, a Dutch Clothing label.
At My Brand I developed my photography more and more. I took pictures for their social outlets and worked as an PR and Marketing Manager. After I few months I realized that marketing was not my passion but video and photography was. I quit my job and started freelancing. Now I own my business called Social For Business. With Social For Business I deliver the hostesses and models in town and create video’s for brands. But most of the time I work as a freelance photographer! I love creating images of people that they enjoy. To show their best selves. But in fashion I love to create dreamy images with colors that pop off your screen. My clients include fashion brands such as Jeans Centre & Garcia, Burker Watches, Sapph Lingerie, Strelam Apparel, Explicit Menswear, French Connection and WE fashion. Also I work for businesses such as 125 procent, Faber Betonpompen, AVDR, Gastvrijheid in bedrijf, Farber & Zwaanshals and various freelancers who need pictures for their website.
