Photography during a cruise on the canals
While photographer and skipper Jeroen Otto takes you along the most beautiful spots of Amsterdam, you have every opportunity to photograph. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, everyone has two hours to capture the beauty of the city. By leaving in the morning during the weekend, it is nice and quiet on the water. Moreover, the light of dawn makes for a special setting.
Jeroen helps you with photo tips
Jeroen Otto helps you along the way. He introduces himself:
Hello, I am Jeroen Otto. I have been a boatman in the Amsterdam canals for almost ten years. Besides boating I have been a freelance photographer for 10 years. I know my way around Amsterdam very well and I like to take you along the most beautiful places of Amsterdam. We sail for two hours and then we have plenty of time to make beautiful pictures. We really take our time for this by stopping at interesting places to take pictures. If you have questions about photography, you can ask me and I will do my best to answer them. Mind you, my first task is to sail safely through the canals. I am looking forward to welcome you on one of our open boats.
A photo cruise during bad weather
In very bad weather the canal cruise can be cancelled as it takes place on an open boat. If the trip is cancelled, your ticket can be used for the next photo trip or we will refund your money.
What is the route and departure location?
This is not fixed and will vary. Jeroen knows the canals like the back of his hand and will take you to the best spots for a photo. This can vary per season and per cruise. The departure location is always the same: Stromma Damrak - Pier 5 (Damrak 16).
