Sjoerd Banga

A Frisian guy from Up North

When I was young I had two passions: computers and film. And both are occupying my mind until this day and fuel my fantasies and ambitions constantly. After an IT-career spanning a period of 15 years I quit my job and started my own business, making films. And that is now (2017) 10 years ago.

Over these 10 years, besides film, we started doing photography, webdesign and other multimedia-flavoured projects. We’re doing projects for organizations, consumers and for fun.

There were a few reasons why I quit my IT-job and started my creative adventure. Because the company I worked for kept growing I felt more and more out of touch with my ‘customers’, colleagues of other departments. Besides that I love my freedom and have a broad interest and both became endangoured because of the growth of my employer. Besides that it was time for something new and that could mean only one thing: film. And starting my own business I would gain back my freedom and the close contact with my clients. Ofcourse this would mean that I would also give up a lot of securities; a steady and well-payed job, my colleagues and a great employer.

Now it’s 2017. The year I turned 50, the year I’m in business for 10 years and the year I’m living 20 years together with my partner Erika.

Een fotoshoot is een ervaring die je niet snel vergeet en daarom willen wij die met jou delen. Want fotografie gaat over identiteit. De identiteit van jou, de identiteit van ons en de identiteit van degene die de foto bekijkt. Onze studio in Meppel is het beginpunt van vele creatieve fotoshoots. Het contact met mensen vinden wij erg belangrijk, dit zie je terug in de foto's. Wij leggen je vast zoals je écht bent en zoeken de grenzen op. Bij ons ben je verzekerd van bijzondere foto's, gemaakt met veel gevoel. Doordat er bij iedere fotoshoot weer opnieuw wordt nagedacht over bijzondere locaties, speciale concepten en nieuwe invalshoeken, zijn jouw foto's altijd uniek. www.78a.nl
