Portrait of Gijs Blom, Prince Viridian in the film The Letter for the KingIt. Netflix
Portrait of Gijs Blom, Prince Viridian in the film The Letter for the KingIt seems to me on all these photos the Gijs is absolutely different from sexy man to an almost sickly teenager from the movie “Spider” by David Cronenberg, I can see all these different sides of him. He is great.

Portrait of Gijs Blom, Prince Viridian in the film The Letter for the King

It seems to me on all these photos the Gijs is absolutely different from sexy man to an almost sickly teenager from the movie “Spider” by David Cronenberg, I can see all these different sides of him. He is great.

I had a photo shoot with a dream team of Netflix.

It was fun to work all together, with a stylist, make-up artist and in the background a cameraman with a soundman doing backstage video.

TESTIMONIALS

We were looking for long time for a portrait session that would really represent ourselves in the most natural and spontaneous way possible. We are glad we found Victoria, she has a very positive energy and really connects with you. She is very good at make you comfortable and the final result is great!

Victoria was amazing! We hired her to take pictures of some writers we were hosting at Netflix. (Before the Pandemic). The images came out beautiful. One of the writers actually commented, “Maybe I do have a face for television!” And I replied, “Only if Victoria is behind the camera.” Once this pandemic is over, we will definitely use her for future shoots. Thanks again, Victoria. 

Victoria is hands down one of my favorite photographers to work with. She is a deep soul, and has an understanding of people’s lines and features in a manner she can make the simplest portrait look like a work of art. When working, she looks for an actual connection with her subjects and strives to capture the light in their eyes. As Netflix, we worked with Victoria multiple times in Amsterdam and have been always very very pleased with the results, both in full studio days and during events in which gear, times and spaces were limited. I’d recommend Victoria to anyone who’s looking for an artist who can adapt herself to any situation and can produce top quality work with the simplest of setups.
