Caroline Castendijk - View my 'Curaçao' set on Flickriver

Caroline was born in Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean, but at first only lived there as a baby. She grew up in The Netherlands, Germany and France, but decided to relocate to her beloved native country. She lives on dushi Kòrsou since March 2010.

After having many handicraft hobbies, including sewing, quilting, upholstery, painting and making dollhouses, which resulted in having her own doll house shop for adults for a while, she was introduced to the world of photography in 2002.

Uploading her photos to www.flickr.com broadened her views on different styles and techniques substantially. The bug of photography caught her and she started attending evening classes and later signed up for a professional photography course at the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam where she studied photography for 2 years.

She now is a professional freelance photographer and she has a variety of skills of which photography of portraits, weddings, real estate, atmosphere and architecture are being her main focus.

But she likes to look outside the box, so she can be hired for events, graduations, baptisms, communions, choirs, kids/pool/beach/bbq parties, company face books, pregnant bellies, newborn babies, 1st-111th birthday parties........

She is very happy to accept your assignments. Please feel free to contact her.

    "©© Carootje shows us the world around her in a unique and framed way. It is always a pleasure to see day to day things from a slightly different and fresh perspective and I think that is what makes her photography so great. I am glad to have found her on flickr and strongly recommend her photostream."

    Don Pedro de Carrion de los Condes says:

    "Carootje has a perceptive eye for the things around her. Her photos show a keen interest in the form and colours of the scène. One of the rare abilities of Carootje is to illustrate the object by only showing you a detail which says it all. She is never afraid to experimenting and often displays unusual angles of sight. Her photos are more than often a surprise. Apart from that she is a very nice person and a good friend."
