I’m a creative photographer specialized in image creation, story telling and creating photographic identities for clients including:

Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment・Rijksmuseum Amsterdam ・NIB Capital ・Sanquin ・CASLA ・Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations ・ Europan NL ・Cultural Council North-Holland ・

At the heart of what I do is a desire to create work that is explorative in character and highly crafted.  Above all else I not only want to deliver photography that is effective but that exceeds my client’s expectations.

I don’t make a difference between my personal work and my work on assignment; the one is as dear to me as the other.

My work has been published in numerous books and magazines. I’ve received an award of excellence for my photography and my work has been exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.

I’m based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
