Noustha Koeckhoven, 1992
Photo Academy Amsterdam, graduated cum laude, 2015
My photography is colorful, full of fantasy with a playful surreal style. With my photos I like to take people along to my creative world full of fantasy. For me it is a challenge to seduce the viewer to create an own story with the photos.
In December 2015 I graduated cum laude at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
I'm specialized in underwater photography. The atmosphere under water is really beautiful. Everything under water looks magical: no gravity, loose dresses and hair, reflections, small bubbles, fishes.
For my graduating project I went for 2 months to the Dutch Caribbean island Bonaire. In the beautiful clear sea I organized many underwater photoshoots. After my graduation I went again to Bonaire for 3 months, for some new challenging photoshoots. Some of the underwater photos are taken on a depth of 18 to 25 meters which required diving equipment and a world champion free diver.
For my new project I now stay at the tropical Cocos Islands near Australia.
