Meet your mentor

Hi, I'm Michiel Ton. Awesome to meet you!

My story as a Festival & Event photographer started - with my friends! We loved dance music, and one of my friends started Exclusive.com. This website got a lot of attention and we were invited to events, like Ultra Music Festival. I helped our team of international photographers with their assignments. But at one moment I thought: “I can shoot photos too!”

And so, I discovered my passion for photography! What started as a hobby later turned into a fulltime job. And better than I expected, it grew to be a well-paid business.

Also nice to know: teaching is another passion of mine! I finished my bachelor degree as a teacher in social studies.

Creating a course about Building a Fulltime Photography Business was the next step for me. It combines my love for photography and teaching. I’m so excited to be your (virtual) mentor and share it with you!

Festivals & Events I've worked at

800+ events!


“Michiel is an experienced person that I certainly revere. His teaching methods are very clear and for that reason very pleasant to gain knowledge. Michiel is definitely communicative and is therefore always open to my questions. As he himself says; My knowledge is your knowledge!”

“Michiel Ton is a dedicated, professional and a hard-working photographer. I couldn’t be more satisfied and happy to work with him. I can assure that he will definitely give you more than what you want.”

“We’ve been working with Michiel since the summer season of 2017 for all our big performances. Michiel is a great photographer, and fun to work with. It’s always a good time when we ask him to join. ”
