About

Maron Stills a.k.a. Maaike Ronhaar (1978) is a self-taught documentary photographer from the Netherlands. With a preference for raw and on-the-fly photography, she captures the aesthetics of reality in an unconventional way. Always looking for the right energy by focusing on the tiniest action in (mostly) ‘all that moves around music’.

After she bought her first camera, she sneaked in at concerts and just started shooting. By the end of 2016, after building her portfolio for about six months, she got her first job as a house photographer at music venue ‘Metropool’ Hengelo.

Maaike got noticed and invited to tour with bands like (selected) Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown, Strand of Oaks, Courtney Marie Andrews, and RUV. Being their tour photographer soon her pictures got published by both national and international newspapers and magazines (The Telegraph, Lust for Life Magazine, Never Mind the Hype, Country Magazine and many more).
