Born and raised behind the Dutch dunes of The Hague, the North Sea, and Rein Langeveld go hand in hand. It soon becomes clear that he is a skilled and fearless sportsman who knows the sea. As a youngster it also appears that Rein is a self-made, autodidact boy, obvious in his own way of struggle in difficult times and situations. He appears to be a strong surviver with good looks and social skills.
Rein’s career as a photo model started in Brasil, back in 2000. That’s where he didn’t have enough money to survive there for three months and for that reason tried his luck as a model in Rio de Janeiro.
His motive back then was clear; away from all comfort and dive into the unknown…a call for adventure. His curiousity towards the world and exploring it was born here.
Appart from modeling, and meanwhile raising a family of three children with his wife, Rein had a strong interest for art. Art Photography in particular.
This made Rein study fine arts at the Rietveld academy in Amsterdam. His student work had a strong notion of abstraction and diving into deeper areas in order to show more than the visible only: ’Performative sculptures and innovative thoughts about that unseen aspects to materialiize”. It gave him more ways of looking and is a source of inspiration ever since.
In the centre of The Hague, for photography and film, there is Studio Scheef. In an old nail factory we created a beautiful day lighted studio. from sun up to sun down the studio offers free light.
Studio Scheef is an open, creative and flexible space for professionals. The space is used for small groups on editorial shootings and commercial advertisements. We are excited, The Hague now provides professional studio space for image makers and its expression.
Studio Scheef offers highly competitive rates, a complete studio package and it’s hosts who are flexible and friendly with a keen eye for quality. Add to that our catering, which uses healthy products. A great environment for working together or alone.
