Jean E. Calvino  

I am Rotterdam-based photographer who is fascinated with capturing people's unique personalities and I see each project as an opportunity to create something that is truly unique.

Doing something that makes people happy is an awesome feeling. When emotions, perception, personal identity and interpersonal communication come together the end result are photos showcasing feelings and unique personality factors. Psychology lies at the core of my photographic style and method of working. With a degree on the subject, I seek to create images that bring happiness, and retain emotional strength for years to come. With enthusiasm and professionalism, I provide guidance through every step of a shoot, I make sure I understand goals and ambitions, I propose creative solutions and I achieve the best results by ensuring sessions are fun and memorable experiences. 

The whole process brings me joy because it gives me a chance to create an environment where everyone can be themselves and the opportunity to create something beautiful.​​​​​​​

In my spare time, I volunteer as a photographer at a local Spanish organisation that focuses on the integration and participation of Spanish-speakers in Dutch society. I also love going to the park with my toddler and wife, take photos with my film cameras and develop my own film.
