My name is Eric van Kampen. I am a photographer, videographer and self publisher based in Dublin City. My focus as a creator is to convey, via the production of compelling imagery, new possibilities for clients to visually explore narratives that best represent their online presence.
I offer a service to meet these demands given a preference for either moving or still image, or both. I do this by offering high quality videography and photography services that are catered towards unifying the ethos of businesses with their online representation. I work on a one to one basis with clients but also am open to collaborating with other creative agencies who have similar goals in mind.
Whether your needs be editorial, content creation for social media, product photography or images for a new website I provide a flexible service that I try to cater to each clients requirements. Having come from a Fine Art Media background I deliver a quality service that pays tribute to the sensibilities of this discipline, in my attention to detail for finding the nuances of any brief.
I treat both elements of image making in my business, both still and moving, with equal value. I believe that having a streamlined, consistent approach to aesthetics provides an implicit value to the overall look that a client may want to achieve. I believe that my capacity to harmonize both these elements is one of my strong points as a creator.
As well as generating engaging content for clients I operate an independent self publishing business. In 2017 I created my first photobook publication titled BUDDLEIA which was featured in The Irish Times prior to its launch. I oversaw all elements of the project from start to finish including; graphic design, editing, liaising with printers and distribution. This project helped me further develop my tact for handling logistics.
I use this element of my business to complement the means by which I consider narrative possibilities for content creation, as I believe the printed medium of book making still has much to offer in terms of how we conceive of our online presence. I have been involved with this medium since assisting on book publications in the past with prominent Irish Artist Michael Warren. I helped document his work for an exhibition publication for a show titled Kireji in 2010 and again on successive projects documenting his retrospective ‘Unbroken Line’.
