A few words about me
I am a person hooked on observing the world around me. The emotions and the character of those around me always
fascinate me. It's a privilege to be able to capture them. I'm also a perfectionist and persistent critic (as in
able to discern). Yes, we live in an imperfect world but we shouldn't stop making it better.
I first saw the magic of photography as a child while developing the b&w family photos at home with my dad.
In 2006 I decided to enter again into the world of capturing moments, this time in digital format. Since then I have
been photographing weddings, engagements, lifestyle portraits, products and architecture. I also take commercial
Each shoot is a creative challenge which I appreciate. This is also valid for my personal projects, where I try to
show my take on everyday situations, famous places, unique concepts or simply - this which is before me every day.
I also try to regularly share my thoughts and experiences of all things photography on my blog at
I'm 32-years old and currently live in The Netherlands. I fully support the sharing
of knowledge and experience, so if you're looking for a partner to discuss photography, take on a challenging project
or think I could help you in any other way - get in touch with me. You will not find me on any
social networking website, but I would gladly take the time to answer your phone call, stay connected via email or
meet up in the area where I live (or travel through).
Let's make things better. Together.
The equipment I use
I'm not supported by any of the brands which I use. I select my tools carefully,
based primarily on how they perform in real life and how reliable they are in the long term.
I've posted my real-life use reviews of some of these items on my blog. I'll be reviewing newly added
tools as they come, so stay tuned.
