Hi my name is Tijn Schmitz. I was born on September 10th 1988 in the city of Tilburg (The Netherlands). I grew up and lived there the first 19 years of my life. I was always interested in photography and mechanical stuff.
The first time I picked up a camera, was around the same time I was able to read
books. At that age I didn’t realize that I wanted to be a photographer.

After high school I went to college to study 'sales'. After I graduated I asked myself: is this going to be my life? It was then that I actually realized I loved photography practically the whole time I went to college and I was still loving it.
I found out that you can follow an education in photography. I moved to Arnhem and started at 'the school of Photography' in Ede, also in the Netherlands.
During these years in college I accomplished the skills quite fast and wanted to learn more about advertisement photography.
After my internships I realized that I wanted to become a commercial advertisement photographer. I'm still doing that today. I think that's where I can combine my qualities and passion with advertisement and commercials. My previous education in sales actually becomes valuable and helps me with these activities nowadays.

When my internships were over, I also became a helping hand for other photographers. I help photographers who need a assistance, or technical advice on studio or camera matters. I am constantly pushing myself to update my own photography-skills to become a pro in what I do.

This biography is just a small piece of my life. If you want to hear the complete story, just contact me for a drink and I am happy to tell you all about it. And you must know, the first round is on me:) Read Less
