Photographer of people with an active lifestyle. Passionate people who dare to thread outside common territory. These are athletes, musicians, adventurers and entrepreneurs.

I aim for my work to be accessible but not safe or conventional. Credible images are combined with a layer of production value and stylised authenticity. To attain these qualities I immerse myself in the world of the people I photograph. Personal and sincere contact with these persons is vital to me. I don’t ask people to pose but to just live. They are far more interesting that way.

This approach resonates with me because photography is a vehicle for me to discover and understand the world. I want to travel to meet and photograph fascinating people and get to know their lifestyle. I am drawn towards people living an active and passionate life.

It is my mission to help people focus more on their passion and what makes them happy instead of opting for safety and familiarity. In 2012 I cycled from home (which is in The Netherlands) to the west coast of Spain, which took me over a month. The journey has taught me that if you really want something, believe in it and work hard for it in spite or setbacks, you can reach so much. This is also how I work as a photographer.

Currently I’m taking assignments that fit my style and interests. However I’m also absolutely convinced of the value of shooting personal work. It keeps me inspired and enables me to showcase what I’m capable of and like to shoot most. I’ll keep focused on photographing people living an active and passionate lifestyle, shooting them both for brands and because I simply find it fascinating to hang around these people. Read Less
