I’m a photographer based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I take unposed photographs of interactions between people and their everyday surroundings.
I like how an apparently everyday moment can become a short story when photographed.
How a non–scripted moment looks that odd, meaningful, beautiful or funny that it looks scripted. But it isn't. I am thrilled when I succeed in doing this.

This tumblr page is more or less a mirror of my Flickr page.
I tweet mostly selfpromotion hotchpotch here.
Of course there is a Facebook page.
And I'm on Instagram too.

You can find my portfolio at casparclaasen.com

I'm a founder and member of ECHIE, a Dutch photography collective.

  13. The Street Photographer’s Manual – David Gibson

    Received my copy of David Gibson’s The Street Photographer’s Manual and it’s a delightful book, both the photos and the copy. Obligatory and wonderful study material. And of course I’m thrilled to be featured in it.

    Available at your local photobook store.
