Only the very latest, most stimulating messages still penetrate the over-demanded brains of our customers. Nowadays people receive more and more product information through newsletters, social media, and other information channels. The things we need to do nowadays for a little attention! Standing out seems to be the only road to your customers’ attention. With capturing this beautiful colored Ilonka Chrysanthemum from Dümmen Orange I hope to do just that.

How to Get Your Customers’ Attention

As a breeder, grower, or trader, you can distinguish yourself through fascinating and special visual material. With today’s online commerce, a good photo is essential to stand out from your competitor. This is how you will get your customer's attention.   A Look at Red Tacazzi+ Through my Lens by Paul Heijmink    

How I Captured the Colored Ilonka Chrysanthemum

A portrait of a flower is like a portrait of a human! There is often only one perspective from which you can capture the maximum beauty in the photo. Turning, turning, lighting... Then comes the moment when you think: "This is it." With one flower it is easy, with another a quest, as with a portrait of a person. Then it could only be such a perspective that is not obvious but gets the most out of the subject in the eyes of the photographer... And that's how I captured the colored Ilonka, this powerful chrysanthemum by breeder Dümmen Orange.  Ilonka is grown as a single-white flower, but for this photoshoot, the flowers were dyed by Dutch coloring specialist G. de Koning. It has been proven that visual content lingers better – and longer – in memory than text. Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. In addition, texts are read better if relevant (and good) images are added.    

Born and Raised among Flowers

I was born and raised among flowers and works at the flower auction in Ede. The combination of product knowledge and my special way of photography results in unique product photos that are characterized by great sharpness and clarity. Part of my portfolio is several large companies in the floriculture industry such as Marginpar, Bloomingdale, and Cooperativo Del Golfo. In addition, my portfolio consists also of products from top growers in the Netherlands: Gerbera United, Holstein Gerbera, Dick Alderden Verse Rozen, Mediaverdi, and others.
