About me


I’m Marco de Groot, a photographer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. My passion lies in photographing contemporary architecture using symmetrical compositions and a minimal style. I’m also passionate about traveling. When I do, I always look for interesting angles and try to capture what most people just walk past without noticing. Scroll down to see some of my favorite shots and get a feel for themes I like to explore in my work.

Architectuur masterclass of workshop volgen?

Geometrical Artwork

When walking around cities I notice patterns, and I love to frame the image so those pattern gets highlighted and you see what I saw. View work

Always looking up

Inside or outside I am always looking up. Most people just walk by or look at their phone, but not me. I even go into alleys to see what the view is from there. Try it and you'll be amazed what is hiding in plain sight... View work

Mobile photography

The cameras in mobile phones have come a long way. With the right light and distance to the subject it's as good as a SLR camera. View work

Fototentoonstelling Am I an Ornament?

Met prachtige beelden van architectuurfotograaf Marco de Groot ontdek je in deze zomertentoonstelling hoe ontwerpers hedendaagse ornamenten in Amsterdam gebruiken om verhalen te vertellen, culturen te verbeelden, technische functies te vervullen en gebouwen te verduurzamen.
In alle gevallen laat het ornament een gebouw spreken en zoekt het een verbinding met de toeschouwer, als volwaardig onderdeel van de architectuur.
