Joeri van der Kloet is a documentary -wedding- photographer. In 2003 he graduated in Cognitive Neuroscience and instead of continuing his career in science he chose to become a writer and photographer. He started taking pictures on his alpine climbs in the magnificent Alps in Europe and soon started to work for LIMITS, an independent magazine for climbers. When he was asked to shoot a wedding, he said: “Only if can I take the shots without interfering in reality.” Many years later, Joeri still shoots weddings in a documentary and cinematic style. Without flash, autofocus and with only a few prime lenses, he documents the beauty, chaos and humor of a wedding. You’ll find his wedding website here.
With his background as neuroscientist, Joeri developed his own method for focussing a rangefinder camera. Motor learning – which shooting a RF is – requires proper training. Many students attended his workshops and ‘Work your Leica M’ was sold internationally to more than 2000 rangefinder users.
