Lifestyle entrepreneur, kissed by the Italian sun.
Credits to the (creative) concepts also go to my students. They supply me with beautiful examples and ideas - without them I couldn't get the images on my own (much to learn, much to do!).
I was born on 19/01/1982, at Den Haag - The Netherlands.
Very early I acquired a love for music and art, an activity that has continued to walk side by side with my professional affairs. I was 15 years old when I began to work into music mastering. Unfortunately I was never able to dedicate too much time to it, because I couldn't put all my emotions into it: I would like to do more with my feelings.
It was much easier to reconcile a personal hobby and my career through photography, an activity that takes up almost all my free time.
At the age of eighteen I bought my first camera, a compact one, you know the simple series, and it was with this that I took my first steps in photography. This camera with standard built-in lens, and later some extras like closeup lens became an inseparable friend for many long years. Now I use more serious gear to do just basically the same things: creating a situation and capturing this situation with the available lightning and models.
I love to travel, which allows me to get to know and photograph other environments.
I like to photograph other people, to let them look at their best. I am continuously looking for a 'wow'-effect in my images. That's what makes the images really POP out. Still much to learn, but always looking for new talent.
My Dutch photo studio is situated in Zwolle, one hour from Amsterdam and near a big shopping centre.
Still, my photographs are my best presentation: enjoy!
