Dripbook Favorite – Petra Van Raaij

Stop. Look.

Amazing, isn’t it?

Petra Van Raaij, the talented woman behind the above and below photographs, is a Hamburg-based beauty and lingerie photographer who has worked for such magazines as Glamour, Seventeen, FHM, Gala, Mirage, and GQ.

Originally from the Netherlands, Ms Van Raaij studied Fashion Design at the School of Arts in Maastricht. After working as a freelance makeup artist for a few years, and following a trip to Capetown in 1993, she was inspired to turn to photography.

Her work centers on a feminine feel with natural light guiding the compositions. They are truly fine pieces that show the workmanship and eye for detail that a person with Van Raaij’s talent would personify.
