I love telling... 

short stories in my photography. Where I can, I’ll drop in some subtle humor as well. I’m at my best when I get to work with people, preferably in their ‘natural habitat’. I find meaning in shooting photo series for foundations, for example to portray people with a ‘health theme’. I won’t emphasize someone’s disabilities; I’ll find a way to tell both an honest and courageous story. A glimpse into their lives will bring a picture to life.
Alongside of these foundations, I thrive on working with ambitious people that embrace their passions and talents. I dance around those who allow themselves to be vulnerable. I get a kick out of pig-headed minds and those who are ‘on a mission’. And let's not forget to celebrate the real life artists and shiners.

I myself am a little bit of everything mentioned above.
 

I graduated... 

in 2007 at the St. Joost academy in Breda with a major in photography. After that, I immediately founded Madeleine Sars Photography. 
In 2015 I got my degree in Life Coaching from Atma in Amersfoort.


I Surrounded myself...

with an elaborate network of models, make-up artists, stylists, fellow photographers, filmmakers and (graphic) designers over the last 10 years. I love collaborating with various driven and ambitious professionals who are in its broadest sense linked to photography.


My personal work... 

is captured on black and white roll film. I just love the language this medium speaks. Some of the ‘personal projects’ I’m currently working on:
1. The past 5 years I’ve been creating a book with a very personal theme, a long and exciting road.
2. In collaboration with a filmmaker, I’m also travelling all over the world to shoot a series of photos. For now, I’m going to remain mysterious about this project. We'll update you as soon as we can.
3. And last, but definitely not least; I’m working on a project about people with Multiple Scleroses.
