About me

Hi, my name is Nike Liscaljet and I am a cultural entrepeneur, wife, mother, freelance photographer and palaeontologist. When I was about 9 years old, I learned to use my dad's Minolta SR-T 101, because I liked to take pictures of my family and the places we visited during holidays. At that same age, during a school lunch break, I found my first animal bones, getting me interested in anatomy and fossils.

I love going to concerts and festival (especially alternative, rock, metal and stoner), and taking pictures of bands and performers under different lighting conditions. I am a freelance concert photographer with 3VOOR12 Leiden and venue P60, Amstelveen.

I feel privileged when people ask me to take pictures of their life events, such as anniversaries and weddings, pregnancies and funerals. Every such event is different and leaves me with new experiences.

In June 2016, I initiated the foundation of 3VOOR12 Leiden and have been its chief editor until June 2020. I have been a board member of the Dutch Association for the Study of Pleistocene Mammals (WPZ) between 2009-2019, am the chief editor of their biannual magazine Cranium since 2017, and started a position as quartermaster for WPZ's 40th anniversary in 2020.

When I want to go out and clear my head, explore new places or just enjoy the good weather, I get on my little green dragon, Yamaha Dragstar 650.
