About us - Poetae Lucis Media


The whole idea behind Poetae Lucis, as a media agency, is to capture moments and experiences that we further express through the art of photography. Pictures are more than a mere simple record, photography speaks to the best part of us. Our main objectives as a media agency is to keep on capturing these moments that are valuable to our followers. We have a belief that all pictures we take, regardless of their setting, are small pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of life. We, as an agency, have worked towards capturing moments through both photos and films. We work with the UWC Maastricht community by showing our support through covering events such as student led conferences, culture weeks, musicals, talent shows, student or parent led festivals among many more. Even though Poetae Lucis takes a big share of work in-school, we also take the time to cover other events that happen off or outside school. Some of the events we have been working on, is Human cafe Maastricht, the UWC congress, El Duniya Music festival, Knooppunt, UWC Netherlands, Tedx Youth, Government of Maastricht, the Impact series and other events. We also had our first art exhibition called "need" in the Art beat festival in 2015.

Revenue we earn solely goes towards the needs of the agency, such as photography equipment and software.
