Klaas Jan Kliphuis was born and raised in The Netherlands, where he was introduced to photography by his father, who gave him his first camera when he was only 8 years old. 

Since earning his degree at The Academy of Modern Arts St. Joost Breda he assisted several well known Dutch photographers before starting his own business in 2001. 

Demand for his work hasn’t stopped since.


His versatile and creative approach to photography as well as his unique eye for detail and love for fashion have led to beautifully lit images both moving and still.

Klaas Jan is very involved and always works closely together with the client and the team to get the best possible result.


His work has been featured in high-end fashion magazines including InStyle, ELLE, Grazia, Glamour, Myself, Marie Claire, Harpers’ Bazaar and Vogue.

And independent magazines such as Glamcult, Schön, I Love Fake and Vestal.

Among his commercial clients are ST Studio, Supertrash, Hunkemöller, Philips, Claudia Sträter and De Bijenkorf.
