Photographer at DCM
Four years ago, I was working for a graphic design agency and DCM was one of our customers for whom we did part of the printing work. In the context of a temporary assignment, I was 'sent' by my employer at that time to provide internal support in the marketing department at DCM for a few weeks, which was a great time. Apparently it didn't turn out too badly, as shortly afterwards DCM asked me to join their marketing team on a permanent basis. Despite the longer commuting distance, I didn't hesitate for long to say yes. I had particularly pleasant memories of the six weeks I spent at DCM. Whereas before I was mainly doing graphic work, I now got the chance to focus on photography, which was a real added value considering that I also graduated as a photographer.
The great thing about this job is that I can really let my creativity flow and work together with a fantastic and inspiring team, so that we can create beautiful results together.
I find helping shape the company's visual image today is an enriching experience. Images also get more and more impact. Personally, I often choose a product based on its packaging. When I go to the wine shop, for example, as a non-expert, I often decide on the bottle that looks most attractive to me. Photography is also becoming increasingly important at DCM and the other companies within GroupDC. The external appearance of our products must also reflect their quality. Taking good pictures seems obvious, but it is often not. The location, the composition, the light, everything has to be perfect for a successful photo.
The great thing about this job is that I can really let my creativity flow and work together with a fantastic and inspiring team, so that we can create beautiful results together. The company also has a deep respect for customer satisfaction. This respect is reflected not only on those customers, but also on the employees. A very human approach that works out very well.
