I was born in May 1961 and raised in a family of designers,
an environment with more attention to graphic beauty then to nature.

After finishing my study as a social worker I have spend about 25 years
at the Dutch national press agency ANP, working as a photo editor
and managing public relations on a number of photo projects.

I must have edited thousands of professional photos before I picked up the camera myself.
Working digitally made it possible to achieve a lot of technical skills in no time.

My preference to look for subjects in nature,
combined with my upbringing amongst design stuff,
resulted into a mix of clear and graphic compositions and attention to subtle details.

Not a lot of action is seen in my photos, but for the one who takes a closer look
there’s maybe more to see then you would think at first glance.
