Symen Hoogesteger is a Dutch director and photographer based in Rotterdam and working globally.

"Telling stories has always been my passion. Since I was young I've always been accompanied by a camera. Capturing special moments with photos or film. Always fascinated by this one moment which defines the characters. Raw portraits of real people, in real situations, where everyone can recognize themselves in. 

For me as a director the visual aspect is vital. With my passion for realism, I like to work practically. Shooting on location, building sets, creating challenging scenes, working with real flowers and real snakes. Combining all these elements for the right atmosphere, triggering the right emotion."

Worked with clients as:
Universal Music, TomTom, Accor Hotels, Unilever, Rijksoverheid, NS, Sheba, Bol.com, Dr Oetker and many more
