It's mostly, but not entirely, about outdoor activity. The outdoors is my passion. For just a handful of days each year I get to leave my day job behind and feed that passion. Unlike my other work, my outdoor and adventure images tend to be opportunistic captures taken as I move through a landscape, summers on foot or in a canoe or in the winter, on skis or snowshoes. Behind the camera, I'm doing what you see my subjects doing in front of the camera. I like this way of working. Shooting something I understand and truly love. Leaving the rules behind, acting on feelings, living in the moment. What I strive to achieve in my adventure images is, rather than technical perfection, emotional accuracy. The images I share here, whether landscapes or action shots, are those that, to my eye, most faithfully reawaken the emotions I feel when I'm in the great outdoors. The other stuff? Well that's just another type of being outside. Outside in my local landscapes; the dunes, polders and bulb fields of Holland.
