I've cultivated my skills across an array of photography styles, ranging from street and film stills to portraiture, both in natural settings and within the studio. In my pursuit of documentary photography, my aim is to establish connections with the individuals I photograph, allowing their stories to unfold more organically. I also have a big love for fine art, contemplative travel and street photography. It’s an opportunity to connect with the environments, cultures or moments and explore all creative aspects of photography. To experiment with composition, lighting and post-processing.
I studied documentary filmmaking at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam and spent a year abroad at The Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver.From there, I've worked in many different roles in the film industry, always enthusiastic by the process of bringing stories to life on screen. I've also worked on film projects around the world. Together with Rogier van der Voort I started a production company for social change related films. Including Seeds of Permaculture, a 90-minute interactive documentary on, yes, permaculture. It's available to the world for free under creative commons on Youtube and has been widely appreciated. The experience shifted the way we looked at the future and freedom. It provided us with a basis to a more integral life, how to have a more relevant relationship with nature and live life a little less influenced by our culture. Inspired by the people we met, we now own our own place in Spain and design it to be a 'Third Place' where people can really concentrate and come to themselves, their plans and ideas. I really recommend that you visit the place (or one like it) if my story resonated with you in some way.
