We receive a great number of compliments on the photography used on the site. Cupkes makes good use of 3 photographers:

eddie fotograaf EDDIE MOL
Eddie takes photographs in his own manner and uses his own , unique perspective to capture significant moments in life. Because his perspective is similar to ours we always have a "click" and are always happy to make good use of his services. Eddie only needs half a sentence to understand what we want. . Everything Eddie makes for us is "SPOT ON"which makes working with him an absolute pleasure.
Quote : I live my life behind my camera and search for the right moments. I am determined to find them, to recognize and to appreciate them. So you can save them for the future. My goal and passion is to live the moment, to capture the moment and to share this.

Johan has a degree of the Film Academy. Photography is something he does on the side. But, when he receives a commission he is always professional with a creative twist.
We love to accompany Johan because of his vision on urban decay. He sees the beauty where others see filth and garbage. He tries to show this beauty in his photographs.

peter verreussel PETER VERREUSSEL
Peter does our product photography. All photographs of the Swan Lake crockery are of his hand.
Quote: I started with photography at the age of 8. I got my first camera from my father, a simple " agfa clack". Since then the photography virus has traveled with me.

My work stands out by out of the ordinary compositions, sound expertise, the latest techniques and especially lots of dedication. Images are digitally processed by myself. I influence the images in such a way that the photograph expresses the story I want to tell. Influencing takes place on and behind the scenes.

In my spare time I approach the subject in a conceptual manner. Starting usually with my own vision or concept. a creative thinking process, a story I want to telle or a feeling I want to communicate. Subsequently it is a challenge to find the right visual language.

Our Kids Tea Panel

collage panel

Our childrens tea panel consists of 6 girls and 6 boys who think drinking tea is about the best thing there is. Very good! Because tea - and water - is about the best drink you can think of as long as you keep the caffeine level low. All the children in our panel are between the ages of 4 and 8 and can be a member of the panel for a maximum of 2 years. After that other children may have a go. That way we only pick tea that children really like.

working on further translations!
