My name is Herman Groenbroek
I'm a Dutch photographer and student living in Groningen, The Netherlands


Welcome to my website! Allow me to tell you about myself. First and foremost, I am a student at the University of Groningen. As of writing, I'm in my third year of the Bachelor Artificial Intelligence where I'm learning about programming, psychology, logic and even linguistics. Next to my studies I am a photographer. It started off as an interest in camera phones, yet little did I know I was learning for my future. My interests aren't restricted to photography either. In short, this is what I'm passionate about:


  • Photography

  • Playing piano and guitar

  • Developing Android applications - [link]

  • Creating informative YouTube videos

You will notice that this website is dedicated to my photography qualities. In the Photography section you can look at some of my photography. If you're interested to know what photography projects I've done so far, you can head over to the Portfolio section. Feel free to contact me with any question you may have; expect me to reply to you within a day.

Want to know more about my experience as a photographer?


If you're interested in hiring me as a photographer, you might want to know what I've done so far. I made a short list for this purpose. I won't mind expanding this list so if you have any interesting projects for me to do, let me know.


  • My interest in photography started with camera phones - I'm actively trying to get the most out of my camera phone, I call it 'smartphonetography'.

  • In 2014 Study Association Cover organized a Photo Day which I helped organize take photos at.

  • In June 2015, I photographed at the first triathlon organized in Ter Apel.

  • In July 2015, I got the opportunity to photograph at the 45th wedding anniversary of Lukas & Grietje.

  • In October 2015, I was asked to photograph for a 30th-birthday party.

  • February of every year I'm photographing Carnaval in Ter Apel. [ 2014 | 2015 | 2016 ]

I'm always on the lookout for new challenges - feel free to contact me!







How much are you asking?


In order to come up with a fair price, I will need to know how much time I will be spending. When I'm photographing at events, keep in mind that I am spending more time selecting and post-processing the images than I spend at the event. Since I don't know how many photos I will be taking, there is a lot of variation between events. For this reason, I cannot tell you what an honest price is until you tell me more about the event. Also note that certain events are more risky for my camera equipment than others (e.g. pool- or drinking parties). In the end, the amount that I'm willing to photograph for simply depends on your activity.

Now, I'm not an expensive photographer. If you want to get a fair price, let me know what you have in mind and I'll let you know if it covers my costs. We'll figure out what works for both of us!


As a reminder, these are some of the things I can do for you:


  • Any kind of event that needs a photographer, be it in daylight or at night.

  • A photoshoot at any nearby location of your choice (unfortunately I don't have access to a studio).

  • Editing photographs that you already have, for example photoshopping a person from one photo into another photo.

  • Restoring old, damaged photographs digitally.
