About me

Aqua.baby photographer arjen mulder Arjen is a friendly dutchman from Gouda near Rotterdam, who after several years working as an account manager founded his own company as a photographer in January 2011.

He began taking photographs in 1998 with an amphibious film camera, but soon switched to the digital world of Nikon. This enabled him to make rapid progress and he took various professional photography classes. It turned out that he has talent and he quickly became a well-known underwater photographer in the Dutch diving scene. He won several competitions and published his work in diving magazines. After moving to Cologne in 2007, he found the Fotoschule Köln as a suitable tutor for landscape photography. There he expanded his knowledge of general photography, which gave him new opportunities.

When baby swimming with the eldest of his 3 sons, Arjen came up with the idea of ​​combining his hobbies of diving, photography and children, and put it into practice in January 2011. His main focus is on underwater photography of children in swimming pools in North Rhine-Westphalia, where he has photographed over 22,000 children creatively and individually.

However, underwater photography of children in swimming pools is only part of his portfolio. It covers a much wider range. He can accompany you from the wedding on to the pregnancy and he shoots  children in or out of the water. Also in the B2B area he has various customers. When photographing, he benefits greatly from his open and friendly nature, which motivates even the most timid child / animal / adult to work with him. He not only deals with the individual needs of his customers, but also likes to develop new ideas with them.
