He is a creative genius that will not only capture only the best, but truly deliver a new, admirable outlook. See for yourself in this video and stay tuned. Thank you so much Dennis. Much love ❤️”
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ KÉRASTASE – NEW YORK USA – “THANK YOU for being so fun, for your enthusiasm, for capturing some really great moments…. and for the perfect film. Aside from your incredible talent, we adored working with you in Barcelona en Amsterdam!.”
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Robin Bhaggan – “Dennis is insane! I know a lot of photographers, but no one has ever gotten me in the picture in a relaxed way. Always tense, uncomfortable etc. and with a rather critical look afterwards, there were never suitable photos. Dennis shoots picture after picture 100%. I’ve been following him for over 10 years and he’s really an artist. He has beautifully portrayed my entire company branding and we already have the following jobs in mind. A must for everyone, you will not regret this. Thanks Dennis!”
