Anne Zwagers

Pure, free and in one's own way.

Surfster, photographer and allround creative with a heart for nature, animals and the human being.

From her small fisherman's house in Scheveningen she pursues her passions under the name AZ works. With her works she wants to show the world the power and beauty of pure nature.

You probably find her around the beach, on a horse, surfing, taking pictures, capturing surfers or somewhere fully committed to working on her beach brand Annie Son Beachwear.

A bit of history

Raised in Voorburg, Zeeland and Hoogmade. Always outside, near water and around animals. As a kid she chose field hockey and horseback riding as her sports.

Anne studied Media and Technology in Utrecht. She followed a major in Advertisement and a minor in Creative Industries. After three ICT and media internships in Amsterdam she worked as a web- and software developer for Swapfiets.

Photography always has been her passion. As an entrepreneur, out of the box thinker and autodidact she never sits still and never stops learning.

A little 'wipeout' in the winter of 2017 brought her to Scheveningen which turned her life 360 degrees. She started surfing, skating and taking more photos. On 20-5-2020 she decided to quit IT and follow her passion. AZ works was born.

"A get-together of the pure being, natural lightning and timing."

Anne started taking photos when she was young. She got her first (plastic) camera for her 2th birthday and her first real camera when she was 9.

Anne never took any course or education in photography. She learned photography by just doing and she progressed along the way. Soon it became her big passion.

It started with her guinea pigs, dogs, birds, horses and soon landscapes. Later on she started to take photos of kids and people became more and more of her interest.

For more than 20 years she has been doing what she loves, as a hobby. Until a year ago she had the guts to leave her IT career, quit hobbying and decided to take up photography full time to earn a living. It's one of the best decisions she's ever made.

Pure, unforced, in motion and in nature

"It's not just taking pictures. It's showing the world the freaking beauty of mother nature."

In photography, Anne strives to capture everything in its purest form. More of a challenge for people than for animals and landscapes. But a natural environment helps and people easily get there through play, challenge, excitement, relief, joy...

This is why Anne loves to shoot in motion, unforced and without too much interaction with the subject, like events and sports. In more static portraits she uses motion to release the tension and come to the natural look.

When Anne is photographing, she get's into an indescribable flow. It's just her, her camera and her mind looking for moments to capture, that she sees all around her.

"When I photograph you definitely find one of the purest versions of me."

Anne Zwagers


During Anne her IT career at o.a. Raul&Rigel, Woedend!, Swapfiets and Economy BV, she figured out that it wasn't coding that made her happy. It was the ability to create and design something that looked good, matches by color and, above all, suited the whole.

With a mother in interior design, she picked up some styling and color advice early on. In combination with IT, graphic design, social media and photography, she has the knowledge and skills to create a brand with a strong brand- and identity design.

Anne always wanted to work for a brand and felt the desire to create a strong identity and appearance. With Annie Son that opportunity came her way. She loved it and started helping other companies and entrepreneurs to establish their own brand identity and strong designs.

Anne Zwagers started surfing in May '19. She started longboarding in the summer of '20. Currently she's surfing any classic surfboard, preferably with no more than 2 fins.

Anne experienced competing on high level in the Longboard Pro '23 at WSL's Boardmasters in Newquay, Cornwall, UK. She figured out that she's more of a 'Fun' Free Surfer. She's always open to creatives who want to make video or photo work with her. Do you have a nice idea? Don't hesitate to contact her.

What's in the name?

Usually an artist picks a stage name as their brand. But Anne flips this around and goes undercover in her private life as Puck.

Since a young age uses Anne her full name for her photography. So it wasn't too hard to come up with a name for the business. AZ works covers it all.
