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’ve 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.

Digital camera’s enabled me 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 and work experience at ANP, 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.
