The picture you can't take yourself!

A visit to Volendam really should include a picture in traditional costume. It has been that way for a long time and will remain so. But why is it so popular?

In the first place, because having your picture taken together is fun! Especially when everyone is trying on his or her costume and getting dressed up. All our costumes are crafted with historical accuracy. For a brief moment, you will be standing in the history of Volendam yourself – in wooden shoes! When everyone is ready and smiling for the camera, the picture is taken: a lasting memory of your visit to Volendam and its colourful local costume.

Foto De Boer started photographing visitors nearly a century ago and three generations of De Boers have taken quality pictures of over a hundred thousand people from all over the world. Join them, for this picture you can’t take yourself!

Group fun

Bachelor party, company outing, day trip with friends, club or association, anniversary? A picture in Volendam costume fits any programme. It also offers a tangible and lasting memory of your fun day out.

We can easily take group photos of up to 60 persons. However, we would like to ask groups to book in advance, so we can give our full attention to everyone in the group. Helpful assistants will await you and turn you into real ‘Volendammers’.

The most beautiful children’s photos

They’re grown up before you know it.
Wait any longer and we’ll be too late.

These are the words of parents that captured childhood in a unique series of photos. The charming pictures will please grandparents as well, especially as a surprise gift.

If you would like to have your child or children photographed, just come along. There is no need to make a reservation.

Now and then we ask for permission to display a photo in our shop window. Just like the pictures of celebrities, everyone enjoys pictures of smiling children in costume.
