I am Claire Droppert, a photographer and visual content creator based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Also well-known on Instagram as @Claireonline with almost 300.000 followers.

As a photographer, I consistently focus and combine both simplicity and minimalism to achieve a serene style with an artistic approach.

With common themes such as travel and nature, I endeavour to capture unique desolated locations in where I can create a distinguishing silent feel to my work. Within my work, I continually strive to incorporate a strong vision by using modern editing techniques.

My images have appeared in printed publications including: Discovery magazine, Photo digitaal magazine, HP de Tijd, Algemeen Dagblad and Get inspired magazine.

And online media outlets including; 
The Huffington PostWiredABCNewsLightroomGizmodo
