Have your picture taken in Dutch traditional costume
Having your picture taken in costume is fun, easy and quick (and affordable!) Here are the three steps that will create your unique picture.
1. Reception and dress-up
An assistant takes you to the photo studio. Men and women are separated and a costume is selected for everyone. No need to undress; the costume is worn over your own clothes. One of the assistants will help you get dressed. Then it is time to try on a pair of wooden shoes. Dressing up is often the cause of much hilarity and an experience in itself.
2. Composition and picture
Once everyone is fully dressed, it is time to strike a pose in the photo studio. The decor is selected, as well as props and accessories. There are many to choose from, what about an accordeon, a stone pipe, a bottle of gin or a fish basket? Or would you choose a yoke, a round cheese, a coffee grinder or a bunch of tulips? With their expert eye the photographer positions everyone in the scene. And with a ‘click’, the unique moment is captured.
3. Fast service
While you’re taking off your costume, we are already busy with printing your pictures in the desired size. This takes less than half an hour. In the meantime you can browse our shop or go for a stroll on the Dijk, along the harbour. There’s a lot more to experience there, see our must-see tips on www.WelcometoVolendam.com
