I love to go into an environment, whether a culture, hotel or a home, and capture the whole experience from the architecture, interiors, the food to the people there. I like to keep my approach fresh and vibrant so it works well for both editorial and commercial clients.
Born 24th April 1968 in Scheveningen, The Netherlands.
Studied photography at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague.
Every major field of photography was covered in the first 2 years. The 3rd year I had a great internship with Food and Commercial photographerTobias Reymond, in Amsterdam.
The 4th year, 1994, I took off toSydney, Australia to fulfill my second internship before graduation.
I had a total blast! Working for some great Australian commercial photographers like Mark Llewellynn, Bruce Allan and Paul Nevin, tagging along on some really great assignments.....not to mention enjoying the Aussie lifestyle; beers, barbies, beach.....The Works.
I graduated with a BA degree in Arts, Photographic Design in 1996 (and nobody asked me for that degree ever since).....
Basically from day one (starting in 1991) I took on an assistant jobs and photojobs.
Straight after graduation in 1996 I started my own photo company as well as assisting editorial photographer Maxim Meekes.
A year later I started the film companyMaverick Filmworksand enjoyed filming and local tv for some time next to my core photography business.
I am happily married to Judith and we have one young son namedMarcos.
We live currently inMiami, Florida.
Periodically I write on my blog.
