When I was 13, I got a camera from my parents. It was a Yashica with two zoom lenses. In the basement I was allowed to set up a dark room to print the photos that were taken. I spent days and nights there and mastered the principles of this wonderful profession. It has not let go of me to this day and after completing a thorough training at the Academy for Photography and a number of years as a freelance assistant for top photographers in the Netherlands, I can call myself a professional photographer for over 25 years.
The profession has changed in that time, but my fascination for the medium has not diminished. Over the years I have discovered what I am good at and what gives me energy. It is mainly the people I can photograph and with whom I can look for that one photo with the right appearance for the intended purpose.
This is me with my other great love.
My dogs provide the balance in my life. When I’m not working, chances are you’ll find me somewhere in the woods.
