About me

I am

Bauke Roof, a Dutch freelance lifestyle photographer. I’m based in beautiful Inishowen, the most Northerly bit of county Donegal & Ireland.


Bauke Roof Self Portrait

This is me. A self-portrait

I work

With private, public & commercial clients. For publications, archives and portraits, at events, special occasions or out & about. I work hard, with passion and love what I do!

I live

With my amazingly handsome sailor husband Brendan, a cat called Drake and a dog called Henry. We live next door to Seamus the donkey. In a cosy little house at the shores of Trawbreaga bay.

I have

More than 10 years of experience, a photography diploma from the Netherlands (among other certificates) and the right equipment for the job. Also great social skills, flexibility and patience. I have years of experience as a youth worker and child carer in the Netherlands. (Working with your children would be my pleasure.)

I strive

And love to produce clean, realistic and expressive photographs that capture personality, beauty, a little smile and all the action!  I strive to get you the stunning photographs you deserve.

I love

Coffee. A little bit too much maybe! Also the unbelievable beauty of the Irish landscapes & coastlines. Walking through them, seeing the light changes. I love mucking about in Photoshop, Fancy Dress parties and real Belgium or Swiss chocolate. And I’d love to have a wee chat with you, to do some creative planning of your photo shoot.


Aye but sure….

This is just a little bit about what I think you’d like to know about me. There is so much more, like the most common question I get; “How did you come to live in Ireland?”


We should really just have a chat. I bet you’ll love my Dutch-Donegal-American accent. We might just surprise ourselves with the great plans we can come up with!
