After completing a modern dance education at the Higher school for Arts in Arnhem, she graduated in 1998 from the Academy for Visual Arts, from the photography department.

Since then she has worked as a freelance photographer making independent work and by order of magazines and theater dance posters.

Susanne specializes in portrait and theater- dance photography.

About her photography:

I believe that vulnerability makes us a nicer human beings and that this makes the worlda little more friendly and more understanding.

People who show themselves vulnerable give the other the confidence that they themselves may be who they are.

When I meet people who touch and inspire me me in one way I want to show the thingsthey touch in me. I specially become enthousiast when I see more layers of their personality at the same time. I found it very exciting to try to capture this in my portraits
