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

What others say about me


“We really appreciate Claire's work for us. For an Instagram project in 2017, Claire brought the autumn-season in the Lucerne-Vierwaldstättersee region into picture. We were very pleased with the result and our partners as well. Claire provided all material in best quality. The reporting, she shared with us was also excellent and not self-evident. I would love to work with Claire again on a future project.”

“We have worked with Claire on two Hong Kong projects and she is exceptionally professional, passionate and skilled. Her photography deliverables are outstanding and have helped to elevate our marketing and social media communications. She provides comprehensive reporting and is an excellent communicator - we always feel assured that she understands the brief and work at hand. I would not hesitate to recommend her or work with her again.”
