Josien van Oostveen
My name is Josien, I am 25 years old, live in London, and I kind of really like cameras.
I have been studying various film-related subjects for longer than I'd like to admit, but have successfully graduated the Met Film School with a BA in cinematography in 2017. With an overabundant love for both filmsets and cameras, it didn't take long for me to combine the two and show up to set with my own DSLR in hand for some behind-the-scenes photos. That really got the ball rolling for me and now I find myself running from photoshoot to photoshoot and you can find me in the photopit of any London venue most nights!
What I enjoy most about what I do is being able to seamlessly blend into the background and just... observe. My best shots are always taken when my subjects are relaxed and not focussed on my camera as much. I love capturing those everyday moments you otherwise wouldn't even pay attention to. I challenge myself to make every piece of work I produce interesting to look at, whether through subject matter, composition, colour, motion, or focus.
It's pronounced yo-seen!
