Maarten de Groot


Maarten de Groot is based in Amsterdam and the world is his Playground.

Being as passionate about sports as he is about photography, Maarten has all the expertise needed to master the diverse elements that define his “playground”. The images he creates, full of life and narrative, go beyond normal sports-photography because he knows firsthand about the psychological mayhem every athlete goes through. Maarten constantly looks for that tension between effort, fulfillment, pain, joy and dedication, and being an outright peoples person, he knows just how to get his models to perform their best. Combine that with his love for people and the technical aspects of photography and you enter his playground, a place where everyone excels.
