Hi there reader! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us here at R-TIME. Allow us to take you on a tour behind the scenes: R-TIME is an ambitious and currently developing creative collective with a banging line-up of young photographers at its core. Front woman and overall boss lady Riemkje Poortinga has hand picked some of the best in the business. Current photographic talents include Renee Sara Joppe and Anne Carolien Kohler. But photography is not the only thing R-TIME has to offer: slowly, but gradually we are building an empire of like-minded creatives that will include art directors, video makers, stylists, make-up artists, models, graphic designers and creative writers. We are always on the look out for new talent with which we can take this platform to new levels.
At R-TIME we got what you need, even if you don’t know you need it yet. Our dynamic team is capable of producing full fashion series, campaigns, lookbooks and fashion videos. We get the whole process done from start to finish, from concept to final artwork, from paper to full on aeroplane! If that’s what you’re looking for, we make it happen. We specialize in branding with youthful board sports culture (and the lifestyle and fashion that comes with it) as our main focus.
"We see photography as a moment of personal expression in which you can demonstrate your personal style. There are moments that are so magic, that makes us want to freeze them, share them and enjoy them over and over until the end of time. That is what we do: catching and capturing the best moments in life."
Our roots lie in the surf, skate and snowboard cultures, meaning that our fashion photographers are influenced by urban influences as well as beach vibes! The name R-TIME refers to the term 'air-time', which is a common phrase used in board sport cultures. It describes the moment in time that you defy gravity and become airborne. It gives the rider a rush, an adrenaline kick and creates the ultimate feeling of freedom. We like to reflect this feeling in our work, with our creative freedom. If you would like to experience first hand what this means, don’t hesitate to jump on board and drop us a line. We’re always excited to meet new people, start new projects and go on new adventures!
