The Agency

Create Agency was founded by Arnold van den Berg in the summer of 2007. Having
previously worked as a Production and Traffic Manager, Operations Manager and Art Buyer
for several international advertising agencies, he held the vision of an agency that would
represent only the best ad photographers and illustrators from the Netherlands and abroad.
Create Agency has since grown into a full-service production company capable of handling
all aspects of production, from pre-production through delivery of the final images.
Thanks to our international network, we can shoot and complete projects anywhere in the
world. We take full responsibility for handling the complete production process for clients.
We make sure the job gets done: from finding the most suitable models and locations to
accommodation, travel and the best damn coffee on the set!

The other shot we made was a very early morning shot from a helicopter. In this stunning landscape we can see Reinhold Messner standing on the balcony of his latest museum: Messner Mountain Museum Corones designed by the late Saha Hadid.  To his portfolio.

He constructs fantastical worlds balanced between the real and unreal, with Photoshop, Cinema 4D and Zbrush being his weapons of choice.

Josh’s wild imagination coupled with his 3D modeling, photo manipulation and retouching skills make him an ideal collaboration partner for art directors and photographers alike.

    His epic images are rich in texture and detail, multi-layered and thought provoking, specifically designed to challenge the viewer’s sense of reality. To his portfolio.

    Ourgrid, growing between the lines (in progress) by Jaap van den Beukel.

    Ourgrid, growing between the lines (in progress) by Jaap van den Beukel.

    The aim of this series is to portray the explosively growing group of teenagers in the Amsterdam suburb of IJburg. IJburg is made up of several islands, each with its own atmosphere and architecture and with its own group of youths. Each individual in this age-group is still searching for his or her own 'buildingplan' in these so carefully planned and executed environments – which have not taken this age-group into account. These individuals in an intrinsically insecure phase of their lives, set against an austerely structured background, fascinate me as photographer and as inhabitant of IJburg. I want to capture them in such a way that the interaction between the searching teenagers and their rigid surroundings is optimally displayed in the photographs. To his portfolio.
