Hello, my name is Wendy de Boer and I meet photographers around the world and do photo team ups with them. Together we learn about photography, culture, global themes and life. I make small video documentaries about these very special and inspiring meetings. While watching these documentaries you will have the opportunity to join me on my adventures and to experience this very special way of using photography as a tool to connect, to learn, to inspire, to share and most important to try to make a difference for others. We celebrate humanity through photography and film!

I initiated my project Shoot with a Local in 2017. Besides my job as a flight attendant I felt so passionate about photography that I wanted to develop my skills to better express myself visually. It persuaded me to meet photographers all over the world on my working trips and do these so called ‘photo team-ups’ with them. Till now I have been so fortunate to meet some very special and inspiring photographers and those meetings changed my life and my vision on photography completely. These new insights have made me want to take a different course, a new direction in my life. It convinced me to take the hardest decision I ever made …
After 20 years I resigned my job!!!
Although I owe a lot to my beloved job and partly because of that I was able to meet the photographers in all those different countries, I have come to a point that my job has got in my way to further develop my project and myself to a more professional level. Or better to say carry it in a different direction. Very soon I will publish a blog about this remarkable decision and what my future plans will be. But first I would love to share with you my “farewell” video. A compilation of my feelings around this life changing move and you will see images of my last flight and at the end you will be able to see all the wonderful ‘blue’ feel good pictures I took of all these KLM crews I was able to meet throughout my career. I have also just published my first blog about “the story behind” my precious project. I hope you feel welcome at my brand new website and the content may entertain you, inspire you and make a difference in your daily feed. From now on I will take you on my journey to re-design my new life after having been a flight attendant for 20 years to a woman following her heart and with a purposeful mission. I would of course love it if you would subcribe yourself. Really all support is so desperately needed to gain meaning in this supersaturated world of photography and film. My goal is to take my project to the next level where I can work in a more professional way and create stories which really matter.

I strive to build a website where I can bundle all my work together in the best possible way in a great quality resolution. I regret that nowadays there are so many different social media channels, all with their limitations, alchorithms and compressed feed. Soon my videos, photo’s, blogs, info about my gear and all my other creative endeavours will be visible on this page. If you want to follow me closely and don’t want to miss a thing of my new adventures please follow and support me here!
THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY AND STAY TUNED!
