“Its not about ideas, its about making ideas happen!”
Hallo, my name is Barbara and a few years ago I started my own business; BAMOS concepts, after working the last 22 years in marketing and communications for several companies and organisations in the profit and non-profit sector.
It allows me to make a living while pursuing something for which I have a strong passion, mainly doing good and art through photography. By turning it into a business, I hope to find even more enjoyment and fulfilment in life. I have always felt like an entrepreneur and now it’s the right time! I feel so excited about it!
After almost twenty years of great living in Amsterdam, some years ago we decided to move to Haarlem, a lovely and historic town near the beach, surrounded by lots of nature and with a more calm and quiet pace. But also packed with lots of museums, culture, shops, fine wining and dining and lots of estates, outdoor events and activities. A great place to live with my partner Daniël Leenders, architect and owner of 6to9design.nl, and a fantastic place to raise our daughters Noor (12) and Saar (10). Plus, let’s not forget, a paradise for our blond Labrador Moos (6).
At this moment I have a spacious and professional studio in Bogotá in Halfweg ("halfway" A'dam and Haarlem). Bogotá is a wonderful breeding ground for creatives, artists and entrepeneurs.
