Studio Baires

About Us

Studio Baires is a collective of young Dutch journalists that mainly work in South America. We make controversial documentaries about urgent issues. We also report the latest news from the southern cone. Studio Baires works in cooperation with various Dutch media outlets. For instance, RTL Nieuws, one of Holland’s biggest news shows, with an audience of 1.5 million viewers. Or daily newspaper Trouw, voted best European newspaper of 2012. Feel free to browse through our site to see what we are capable of. And please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions (or work) for us! 

Peter Scheffer
Peter is our bold reporter and has made quite a name for himself since he started working in Buenos Aires in 2011. He is the correspondent in Argentina of Dutch daily Trouw and freelances for RTL Nieuws. He is a true all-rounder and knows his way around in Argentina and neighboring countries Uruguay and Chile.  

Remi Lehmann
Remi is our adopted porteño holandés and works as a freelance correspondent for various regional newspapers. For Studio Baires he is our main analyst and producer. Remi first set foot in Argentina in 2007 when he studied Latin-American politics at a Buenos Aires university. After a short stint in Venezuela at the Dutch embassy, he graduated in International Relations on the topic of (Venezuelan) resource economics. He’s a staunch River Plate supporter, it is best not to engage in fútbol-related discussions with him.

Bas Voorwinde
Bas is the newest addition to our growing studio. He was trained as a documentary filmmaker in Amsterdam and New York and has developed himself as an experienced all-round filmmaker working for public broadcasters, various cultural platforms and on theatre projects in the Netherlands. At Studio Baires he will mainly work to expand our video productions as a director and cinematographer, so we can make more and longer formats.


Niels Wenstedt
Niels lives in Argentina since 2009 and is a (press) photographer and producer. He is very familiar with Argentina’s interior. Thanks to his impressive local network and his no nonsense approach he opens doors that remain closed to others. Can’t live without his Canon camera and cellular phone. His contributions were essential for the realisation of the ‘Tango Line’ documentary.
