My name is Ruud Jonkers and I am a professional photographer for the last 20 years. In 1996 I finished The Royal Art Academy in Den Hague, department photography.

Since that time I work for several clients including Festivals ( for example; The International Film Festival Rotterdam, IDFA ), scientific journals, broadsheets and private individuals.

Besides making portraits and photo-reports I also make pictures on events everywhere in Holland:
