de Lint was born in 1981 and raised in Amsterdam. After finishing high school
in Vancouver, Mick moved to New York to study theatre.
When he returned to Amsterdam in 2008, he shifted from acting to directing and
fashion photography. His raw use of daylight and camera
movement got him noticed at Scotch & Soda where he got the opportunity to
make their campaign films. His portraits and fashion series all
seem to be telling us a story through their looks, and expressions, capturing
real emotions in a minimal way. The cinematic quality in his
photos and the photographic quality in his films have made Mick stand out in
the fashion scene ever since he entered it.
Mick has worked for brands like Adidas, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s,
G-star, Nike, Asics, Cluse and Vestiaire Collective and had the
working with stars like Doutzen Kroes, Imaan Hammam and Gigi Hadid.
