First disclaimer, I’m Dutch. What does this mean? Nothing really, except I get overly sensitive when asked if I’m German and have a disproportionate enthusiasm for hills or inclines of any sort. For my clients it also means my life and photographic experiences can bring different ways of visualising a creative challenge.
Trying to compile over 25 years as a professional photographer in a few sentences is difficult, but in short I got qualified in the mid ‘80s, packed my toothbrush and started out as a photojournalist (not paparazzi) supporting key newspapers in North America and the Netherlands, including the Boston Herald, Miami Global and Nederlandse Dagblad honing my skills in reportage and editorial photography across current affairs, sports, politics, music and events. Eventually I put the suitcase away, built a successful business and began to extend my career and focus on commercial photography.
