Inishowen Independent

Bauke Roof has worked as a freelance photographer for the Inishowen Independent since 2007…although we knew her as Bauke van der Meijden back then! She is sent on all manner of assignments for the Inishowen Independent, from photographing children on the first day at school, to capturing a bride and groom on their wedding day.

And that’s not to mention covering a range of other social and sporting events, as well as undertaking news assignments when required.

 Bauke’s work is always of a very high quality and provided on time which is important when working to deadlines.

She is flexible and often makes herself available at short notice.

I’d happily recommend her for any photography job, big or small.

Buncrana Town Council, Inishowen Tourism

We hired Bauke to photograph the opening of the Amazing Grace viewing platform for the Buncrana Town Council. deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MLA and Junior Minister Jonathan Bell MLA opened the platform. She provided us with the images that same evening. She was professional, quick and a pleasure to work with. Bauke also regularly contributes to promote Inishowen with her stunning landscape photography.

Commercial PhotographyCheckout Magazine

Bauke was recommended to our magazine by a local newspaper for a feature we were doing in Carndonagh, and they were right to recommend her. She was professional, worked without direction while I interviewed the subject and gave us an end product that we were extremely happy to use in our features section in Checkout. She has a fantastic way of making people comfortable when photographing even the most camera shy. If only all our features were in Donegal..or Bauke would move to Dublin!

Our family portrait adorns our wall and captures beautifully the sunny smiles and individual personalities of us all. Bauke’s great talent, professionalism and ability to help us relax were very much appreciated. Already looking forward to the next photo shoot.

Bauke supplied us with images of Inishowen to use in our promotional campaign for a new tourism venture. I approached her as I knew she had been taking photos professionally in the area for some time and had an impressive back catalogue. She was so helpful; sieving through her whole collection to find us the sunniest shots she had. They were all beautiful and perfect for our campaign – she really got what we wanted and her shots have been an integral part of our marketing campaign.
