Holland America

Capturing fresh photography for Holland America's inspired new signature dishes.

Last year, my crew and I embarked on an 8-day shoot aboard

Holland America's new Pinnacle-class ship, the Nieuw Statendam.

Our task was to photograph the ship's new signature dishes served

in its various restaurants. As we sailed towards St. Thomas, our days

started earlier and earlier due to crossing time zones. We had the

pleasure of working with Master Chef Rudi Sodamin, whose energy

and inspiration were fantastic. The entire team clicked, and we formed

a special bond. Unfortunately, just a few months later, the pandemic hit,

affecting the lives of many aboard the ship. Despite the challenges, the

shoot was a dream come true. I hope for the chance to work together

again soon.
