Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Goedhoop is a plus-size portrait, beauty, and body-positive photographer who believes beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. He uses his photography as a creative outlet to showcase plus size bodies and the incredible things they can do. He told us last year:

“The joy I get out of photography is when a non-experienced model books a session to boost her own confidence. And you see that vulnerability grow into confidence midway through the session after you showed her those first shots. That is the most satisfying thing. That’s why I love shooting portraits, to capture the beauty they don’t always see in themselves.”

He’ll be visiting New York in May (deets here) and continues to travel the world to capture the beauty in all.
