Dick Holtuis has also specialised in architectural photography and giga yachts which show off his talent to perfection. He has also photographed the world-famous Palm Jebel Ali, the beautiful artificial archipelago in Dubai and the Palm Jumeira Islands from all positions and angles. His portfolio comprises pictures of saloon interiors on superyachts, guests and crew on board vessels, anchorages at sunset along with different scenes from the vessels. Holtuis takes pride in creating imagery that breaks with tradition. Each photograph he considers to be meaningful and exactly what clients are looking for in their brief. He is well established in his native town of Kessel from where he travels all over the world to work for yacht owners, designers, builders, book publishers and magazines. Photographs of superyachts depict their grace, sophistication, power and utility. A book published in 2014 contained stunning imagery by Holtuis of the 141m Yas, the sixth longest superyacht in the world.
