Rene de Haan is a self-taught photographer who is working freelance since 1989. Starting off in architecture-photography, he coincidently enrolled into the Dutch filmindustry for which he began making publicity stills. Until now Rene has made stills for some 40 Dutch shorts and feature films like 'Siberia', 'Tot Ziens', 'Naar de Klote', 'Wilde Mossels', 'Amnesia', 'Monte Carlo', 'Diep' and "Zwart Water'. You can see a selection in the "filmstills" gallery.

Since late 1999 he takes glamour and nude pics for Dutch Playboy Magazine, and since then he does more and more nudes. He has published in several magazines in Holland (Playboy, Men’s Health, JFK) and abroad (Black&White, Snoecks, Men's Health Germany), and contributed pictures to quite a few photo-books.
In november 2013 he released his first own (152 page) photobook, "Mooi", which can be ordered via this website.

Rene also makes portraits for (a.o.) actors, casting agencies and does modeltests (check gallery: modeltestshoots). His portraits were published in magazines like Viva, Panorama, Qui Vive, The NCRV TV Guide, Avanta and Elegance. In 1995 Rene won a Kodak Camera D'Or Award for his portrait of actress Amanda Ooms.
In April 2000 he had a big exhibition of 90 portraits in the Melkweg Gallery in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

" Off course I shoot digital nowadays, but I sometimes still shoot with my old, analog (500c/m) Hasselblad, because of the excellent quality and the square format. And the fact that it’s not a very ‚fast‘ camera, so I’m forced to work concentrated and not just 'shoot away‘. I prefer black & white above colour, especially for nudes.
I don’t think I’m a glamour- or fine-arts photographer in the traditional way, I often say I make nude-portraits. Because it’s very important to me that there’s something typical of the model herself in the pictures, I never work with a pre-fixed image that I only just have to fill in with whatever goodlooking female body. My pictures always are a cooperation between me and the model.
I seldom book professional models for my uncommissioned work, and I love a natural look, natural beauty is important, so no heavy make-up or exaggerated styling! Most of my work is not or hardly photoshopped.
A location is preferred above studiowork, so the location can be a part of the whole image, and I can be surprised by the possibilities of the surroundings and the available light.
There is not a special 'message' in my portraits and nude pictures. What I’m trying to capture there is the beauty and 'power' of women.... "
