“What started out as taking pictures for fun, during a very boring Masters study, turned into scuba-diving with sharks, having snowboarders miss me by inches (sometimes not), standing between 30.000 raving people or climbing active volcanoes while seeing the furthermost corners of the earth. The choice of doing what I loved instead of what I learned was the best decision I ever made. This is living life to the fullest”.
My company, Fotograferen.net started in 1996 (then called Rud-gr.com) after finishing a masters degree in Public Administration at the Rotterdam Erasmus University. In the years since, I’ve developed into a photographer and writer active in various fields like (dance)music, extreme sports, scubadiving, events and for a large part travel photography and journalism. You can find all these fields on my website, just browse the categories or tags.
Some of the many clients (past and present) include: Marlboro, Chesterfield, Bacardi-Martini, National Geographic, Heineken, ID&T, Unilever, Getty.
