About Phodocu

Phodocu VOF is an independent publishing company based and registered in The Netherlands with a main focus on military aviation. We operate on an international level and work with a wide variety of forces all over the world, using photography to document their operations. Phodocu specializes in air-to-air and action photography which has become our signature, but we also conduct interviews, do research, write articles and make reports. Our work has been published in most leading aviation magazines around the globe of which samples can be viewed in the ‘Printed Media’ section.

Foremost we want to bring a positive view on military aviation and also incorporate human interest into our stories. Always looking for interesting angles to work with such as carreers, history, mission, type(s) of aircraft, command structure, current activities, technical updates or newsworthy details. In conjunction with unit representatives we compile a report based on research and interviews, supporting the non-verbal story we want to tell with our photography. When the photos are edited and the text is finalized, each article is ready to print.

We have been privileged to fly with many units to collect air-to-air material, accumulating a lot of hours flying on board different types of aircraft. Aerial photography is all about capturing aircraft in their most natural state, flying, which makes it such appealing and powerful for publication purposes. Nevertheless we are always looking for a wide variety of shots, including take-off and landing, taxiing, aircraft on the ramp, maintenance, briefings, personnel on the job, etc. Whether in the air, on the ground or at sea, our goal is to be creative and providing top quality products.

A brief history

Phodocu VOF was founded by Dennis Vink and Rens van Rijn in early 1999 and officially registered at the Chamber of Commerce in The Hague, The Netherlands on September 27th that same year. Being friends for a long time and sharing an interest in military aviation photography, we wanted to bundle our strengths gained from years of freelance activities. So we started our company with both photography and documentation as core business specialties. These two words were eventually blended into one name; Phodocu was born.
