Let's get acquainted
On this page I would like to briefly introduce myself.
If you prefer to get to know me better before making use of my services, I love to tell you more in a phone conversation. Phone number: +31 (0)6-15696647
You can also use the contact form or send an email to: , I will contact you within a few business days.
My name is Ellen Teunissen-Ruiterman.
I am married and have two grown-up children. Together with my husband and daughter I live in Zeist.
I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember.
Initially I photographed mainly in the domestic environment and during theater productions. Slowly but surely a desire arose to get to know the camera better and learn how to use it more structured but also to master all camera techniques.
After several Photo courses in Zeist and Amersfoort I took a four year course at the photo academy with Statief in Utrecht. Here I got introduced in a wide range of photo techniques and specialty areas like landscape, product, fashion, portrait, studio portrait, wedding, journalism etcetera.
On this website you will see both work from a number of assignments but also my 'free' work.
Since I regularly attend exhibits and art fairs, you can find me there too with current work. Also check the calendar to discover where you could meet me (my work) now or in the near future.
A loving memory - Een Liefdevolle Herinnering
This year I am following a course to become a "Competent Funeral Photographer". Next to the more informal work that you find on this website, I also have a special site for funeral photography and life-time-portraits. With information, poems and of course example pictures. Naturally I hope that I can give you a beautiful memory of a loved one through my photographic work. See www.eenliefdevolleherinnering.nl
