Professional Skills tutor

Marga Rotteveel is the co-founder and director of the photography organization Docking Station. She studied photography at AKV|St.Joost in Breda. After graduating she got involved in the fields of curation, advising and project initiation. She began her career as a curator at Photofestival Naarden and went on to become the creative director in a later edition of the festival. In 2010 Rotteveel started her own independent business, Photorevolt, where she curated and organized shows in the Netherlands and abroad.

Rotteveel has lectured in the Bachelor’s and Master’s photography programmes at AKV|St.Joost and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) for many years. Alongside her work at the academy, she is a jury member and portfolio reviewer at several photography events, an advisor to photographers, and a member of a number of committees. She guides many (young) photographers on their way to the best form of presentation for their work and searches for new paths to reach audiences through targeted platforms.

She strongly believes in collaboration and sharing her network and expertise; her aim is to connect, inspire and support visual storytellers so that they are able to take their work to diverse audiences. For this reason, she founded in 2016 the visual storytelling platform Docking Station (Amsterdam, NL) with photographer Anaïs López.
