Walter Sietinga


Focus on the photographer

Walter received his grandfather’s black and white darkroom as a ‘Sinterklaas’ present when he was 11-years old. He developed his first pictures on a camping table in the attic. After high school he studied to become a botanical analyst. Photography is clearly in his blood however, because after only one year he stopped and went to the ‘Fotovakschool’ in Apeldoorn. There he learned to make photo documentaries and he broadened his knowledge of product and studio photography. Later he started working as a full-service corporate photographer

Full-service corporate photographer

After taking a specialisation course in product photography, Walter started his career at Lukkien, a media company specializing in advertising photography and film. After that he started working for the NOB in Hilversum as a photographer. His passion for event photography arose here. He continued his career in Arnhem at a professional photo lab editing photos and making sets for exhibition stands and other exhibition material.

After a while Walter wanted to do something completely different and ended up at Philips, the chip producer in Nijmegen. It soon became known that he was a photographer and after shooting a colleague’s wedding, the information spread like wildfire. The board was looking for a photographer for company events and receptions. And so Walter became ‘Philips’ corporate photographer’. This turned out to be the beginning of his own company Sietinga Photography, based in the Arnhem-Nijmegen region. He founded this company in 2001 and has been servicing companies full-time since 2006.
