Be Inspired: Interior photography by René van Dongen (02)

Be inspired by this beautiful apartment in Amsterdam, designed by the company Kolenik Eco Chic Design. Lensed by Dutch interior photographer René van Dongen, who has a tremendous amount of experience in interior photography, architecture & advertising. I posted VARIOUS BLOGS about René's photography work. More photos from this interesting photographer will follow soon.
More about the photographer René van Dongen
René has been an independent, full-time photographer since 1994 with an expertise in interior photography, architecture and advertising. He is trained in photography, graphic design as well as graphic design techniques and has a tremendous amount of experience in this field. 

René always goes for the best result for the client and has a great eye for details and a passion for delivering quality. He analyzes his objects thoroughly: color, structure and above all light/shadow are leading in this.
