Bram Berkien – Active Lifestyle Photographer


My goal as an active lifestyle photographer based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands is to capture passionate people’s lifestyles. Many of these people are athletes, playing sports at a national or even world class level. My ultimate goal is for these photos to be a tribute to the hard work these people put into chasing their goals. These authentic lifestyle images are suitable for brands or media looking to showcase an athlete and tell a story about them. I aim to capture genuine moments and always make the person look as good as possible by selecting the most appealing moments in movement and facial expressions, while refraining from using any major manipulation. The work I shoot is a mix of action, portraits and quick moments that when combined paint a coherent picture of the athlete.

The areas I shoot can be divided into mainstream sports and outdoor. Climbing and outdoor activities play a major role in my life, it is where I first developed as a photographer.

My clients are mainly brands and include Red Bull, adidas, Klean Kanteen, PSV Eindhoven and Mad Rock. A somewhat more coherent list is available on this page. To see some of my work used in context and read a host of articles written by me or about me, please refer to my publications page. I would highly encourage you to have a look at my blog, which gives an excellent impression of the way I work and some of my views on topics in photography, (content) marketing and visual storytelling. Finally, a short bio is available right here.
