Adrian & Gidi is a creative photography and set design studio that favours a playful but refined approach toward work.

Playful but refined

Adrian & Gidi represents the collaborative work of Adrian Woods & Gidi van Maarseveen, a young photography duo based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They first met at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, where they both graduated in 2010. Since 2012 they have been working together specialising in tangible still life and product photography and favour a playful but refined approach towards work. They love to work with a wide range of materials and techniques including paper art, paper craft, styrofoam, plexiglas, miniatures and wood. Sporadically Adrian & Gidi's work also includes on figure photography, feel free to take a peek here.
In more recent years they have also explored the world of animation. Using a combination of stop-motion and computer animation they make their sets come to life.
