Tom van der leij


What DO I offer?


As a documentary and travel photographer, not many things make me happier than traveling, diving into new cultures, and taking photos. I often work as a travel editor and photographer with Dutch and international travel publications, and host exhibitions to share these experiences.


Corporate photos and headshots. Family photos. Engagement photos. Weddings. Team events. Portraits. And much more...
I love capturing the real essence of people in my photography whether they're inside or outside. In just a couple of hours (and maybe a few outfit changes later), you will get the photos you were hoping for!

World Photo Tours

Have a passion for traveling and photography like me? Then I invite you to book a private international travel photography tour with me to some of my most beloved places in the world. South Africa. Mozambique. Peru. Argentina. Europe. I will take care of your travel plans so you can relax & take photos.

About me

Hello, I’m Tom van der Leij, a born and raised Amsterdammer. I received my first camera when I was 10 and haven’t put it down since. My documentary photography style captures people, animals and nature in all of their diversity and beauty, and is what gives my photography its fresh and genuine look and feel.
