Jaap Ruurd Feitsma is an international award-winning freelance artist. He is available as Director of Photography, Director, Photographer & VR creative with experience in a variety of productions such as documentaries, music videos and TV/online commercials, other interactive web based content and narrative fiction.

His work has taken him around the world to over forty countries. Working with different cultures, locations and ever changing circumstances —from luxury resorts to the off-the-beaten-track outdoors in extreme weather conditions— has brought Jaap new experiences that helped him fulfil his passion for telling stories visually.

Jaap has shot for an extensive list of clients including the BBC, Subaru, Red Bull, Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts and many more. He also teaches film and photography at the NHL University of Applied Sciences in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.
