Hi! I’m Sharon, alternative glamour photographer from the Netherlands.
Welcome to my little online batcave, open 24-7. Please make yourself feel at home, pour yourself some coffee, and don’t forget to say hi, I love to know who’s visiting.
You can introduce yourself here.
My name is Sharon, I was born 25 years ago in a small city in the Netherlands. By now I finished my bachelor ‘Art & Technology’ and work as a photographer, graphic designer and branding consultant, also I blog, but since you’re reading this you probably already knew that.
Since I was a little girl I’ve been obsessed with vampires (way before Twilight) and other mystical things like witches and greek mythology. Once I realised becoming a vampire might have been a bit overambitious I wanted to become a fashion designer. So I spent hours drawing vampires and designing their clothes. Next to that I was raised listening to rock bands like Van Halen and Iron Maiden. There actually is film footage of a three-year-old me headbanging to a Van Halen song.
That combination made me the way I am now, spending most of my time working for Attitude Holland and (local) rockbands.
I’ve found that there a very little blogs in the alternative scene and I’m here to fill the gap. What to expect? Photography, alternative fashion, make-up, events and what not, just a random mix of alternative lifestyle! I want to inspire and connect alternative people and show that nobody has to be afraid of a little darkness.
Want to know more about me? Don’t bother asking.
Some random facts:
My natural haircolour is blonde, I think, haven’t seen it for years. I just love crazy colours
I only like wearing oversized earrings, if they aren’t heavy enough I’m constantly afraid that I’ve lost them
For years I only walked on high heels, it got to a point that I was unable to walk on flat shoes. By now I make sure to walk on flat shoes a couple days a week as well. I still prefer running on heels.
I have 5 tattoos but I’m way too afraid of needles to get pierced…
When I was younger I was a ping pong champion, so rock ‘n roll.
