Tapas Restaurant Tapanada

Published in Travel & Leisure - Website Projects

Tapanada was a Tapas restaurant in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Besides designing and developing this website with a differnt CMS (Content Management System) called 'Drupal', I was hired for the multiple Food Photography shoots (as you can see in the screenshot, some of these food detail shots were also used as a banner).


About Photography

Published in General Information

Some website projects also require photography work, for example lookbook / catwalk shoots for fashion designer clients, product shoots, food photography, or registration of certain events like festivals / concerts, also interior / exterior design photography for resorts, cafe's, clubs and hotels. So besides my personal photography projects, I also offer professional photography services for my clients.

I have been a photographer since 2005, and as you may imagine my portfolio has grown very large, due to this reason I have chosen to build a seperate website for my photography portfolio. This portfolio website for my free and commercial work, marcmikaelian.com, is currently under construction, but should be online within a few months.

I currently work with the following (Nikon) equipment:

- D750 Body (also HD video & timelapse)
- 14-24 (f2.8) wide lens
- 24-70 (f2.8) zoom lens
- 70-200 (f2.8) tele-zoom lens
- 105 mm (f2.8) macro lens
- 50 mm (f1.4) prime lens
- 20 mm (f2.8) prime lens
- SB-800 Flash
- 3 softboxes with florescent lighting for food & product photography

If you need a creative photographer, you can contact me by This email address is being protected from spambots.

Turan Hill Lounge

Published in Travel & Leisure - Website Projects

Turan Hill Lounge was the very first campsite in Kabak Bay (South of Turkey). For the last 16 years, it has been admired as a hidden getaway by nature lovers throughout the world due to its unique location, appealing style in every detail, and delicious home-cooked style food.

Besides being multilingual and responsive (the website adapts in size and shape according to what you visit it with; mobile phone, tablet, desktop, etc..), this website also has a 'Joomla' CMS (Content Management System) so my client can update her website herself, keeping costs low. I also was hired for the photography of this resort.
