Although a native Dutch, I grew up in Italy and have lived in the UK and Switzerland. I came back to the Netherlands in 1997 and currently live in Badhoevedorp just outside Amsterdam. Photography has been my passion since childhood. My first SLR was an East German Praktica Nova 1B that I received as a birthday present when I was 13 years old. Soon thereafter I started printing my own photographs is my own darkroom. My first DSLR was a Nikon D1 that I bought back in 2002. For almost three decades I work in Marketing closely together with creative designers and professional photographers. This has greatly helped me further develop my photographic skills particularly working with lighting and off-camera flashes. I particularly enjoy capturing those magic moments that enable us to remember our dearest memories in the best possible way. At the same time I explore doing that in unique ways, using analog equipment with film, a black & white camera and an InfraRed camera. Enjoy the pictures on this site and stay in touch!
