BOAS is born and raised in the Jordaan, the area that, like back in the days, used to be the working-class district of Amsterdam. He is a, as the Dutch would say, a real ‘Jordanees’, by now an almost extinct species. Starting his career as a DoP by making roadmovies during his train travels through Europe at the age of 17, he graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2015. He loves to shoot moody and technically innovative images, as well as beauty and fashion films, a passion that has to compete though with his love for Italian food. If he’s not filming almost certainly he is cooking gnocchi with sage butter sauce, and the central theme when he goes to Italy for holiday is food, food, food. Oh, and he also collects his empty lip balm containers, just to see how many one uses in a lifetime.
