Product Photography: EscapeQuest Armageddon by Frederik van den Berg

A few months ago I was hired to photograph the new space-themed escape room 'Armageddon'. I had previously photographed all of there other rooms for EscapeQuest in Zürich as well, but this one was on another level in terms of staging and decorations, which made it a lot of fun to shoot. Plus, we had people in astronaut costumes doing astronaut things!

Adventuretime with Toby - Fueled by Chocolate by Frederik van den Berg

The premise was strange: "the weirdest vacation ever". The prospects were looking good: a bunch of chocolate and a potential Yeti costume. The flights were booked and along came Toby.

I had lured him with the promise of a great Yeti-chasing adventure fueled by free chocolate (thanks to Lindt). The chocolate manufacturer was looking for brand ambassadors and the idea of unlimited chocolate for life (I'm just going to assume that's part of the deal) was very enticing.

Workspaces by Frederik van den Berg

My past two years were predominantly occupied by a Masters in Marketing which I completed in November 2015. During that time I spent far too much time slouched at a computer, trying to learn something new or write something that made just enough sense to pass. These static and stale environments became an uncomfortable daily habitat.

These are some of my academic workspaces.
