I am a professional travel photographer, based in The Netherlands. This is a short introduction to my work. For best results watch it in HD, full screen and sit back a little.
A few notes on my work:
When portraying a city or a country I want to show what it's really like out there. I'm not interested in the cliché travel images with just shiny happy people or spotless beaches. I want to catch the atmosphere of a place and its people in its bare essence. I want my images to answer that one major question: How does it feel to be there?
I prefer natural light and don’t like styling. In the end I think photography is all about looking at the world differently, and touching other people with that. I think the biggest misunderstanding among photographers these days is that an image of something beautiful is the same as a beautiful image. It's not!
My images covering seven continents have been published in magazines worldwide, such as National Geographic Adventure, GEO Saison, The Flying Dutchman, Hide & Chic, Voiles et Voiliers, National Geographic Traveler, Nautique, Shots, Professional Photographer and Holland Herald.
