Rowin’s website 20th anniversary

Today, August 26, 2018, is a special day! Today, it has been 20 years since my first website launched Back in the 90s, I was a student at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The internet was still slow in the 90s, but the university had fast online access. The circumstances were ideal to create a simple website. Creating the first website: pen and paper I started creating my first website in Spain, not in Nijmegen. During my summer holidays in Platja d’Aro, I read the book “Basiscursus HTML”. Based on the book, I wrote the code for my first website. By hand, using pen and paper! Back at university, I turned my handwriting into my first HTML code. “Rowin’s homepage” – that’s how I baptised my first website – was born. From blog to photography My first website contained some general information about my life. It must have been one of the world’s first blogs! In 2004, it got the name Ardeon.nl, which became quite a popular blog. When I took the first steps into photography, I maintained two websites. In 2017, I decided to close the blog and to rebrand Rowin Photography into Rowin Dreef. The website rowindreef.nl has […]

Bodybuilder running and cardio video

After the Running Bodybuilder Case article, I was asked to make a video of a bodybuilder running and doing cardio exercises. Bodybuilder running and cardio video recorded in Barcelona We recorded the video on two separate days. On the first day, the rain had just been falling, creating some nice reflections on the floor. On the second day, the sunlight was very harsh, but the sky was blue. We recorded the bodybuilder running about five times. He also showed some great examples of cardio exercises, like jumping jacks. Soon available: a separate promo video The running and cardiovascular exercises were not the main target of the shooting days. We made some great pictures under the shower and even a fashion shoot on the street. More pictures will be available soon!

The Running Bodybuilder Case Traditional to new media: a shift from being paid to pay them

I posted a picture on Instagram of a running bodybuilder. The big guy is being chased by a little girl. I called the picture ” Run For Your Life“, referring to the game the kid was playing with the guy. The Running Bodybuilder Case My post on Instagram received a reasonable amount of likes. Let’s say 500 in the first 24 hours. People seemed to like the running bodybuilder and the happy kid behind him. So I thought, why not explore the possibilities of some extra exposure. Traditional to new media: a shift from being paid to pay them I reached out to several big fitness and bodybuilding accounts on Instagram. The only thing I did was send them the running bodybuilder picture. The results varied, but of course all of the big accounts wanted money. Their rates? 10 to 20 USD for one shout out at their page. Some accounts would delete the picture after 24 hours, resulting in an additional payment to keep the picture there. They do not guarantee the shout out will be profitable for you. So around 15 USD for a publication, paid by you, the copyright owner and creator of the picture. In the […]
