I am currently living and freelancing as a photographer in Bali. have been a photographer for 5 years. My father is also a fulltime freelance photographer so I grew up around cameras, the developing room, computers, photo's and dozens of photo books. I still remember the smell of the dark room we used to have in our house where we developed pictures. Me and my father drove miles to go to hundreds of expositions together. Paris Photo is our tradition since years. I learned a lot from him and nowadays we even work together on projects. My love for photography grew and my skills developed.
I went to study at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, the art academy, where I studied Advertising and took photography classes. I worked a lot in the photo studios, editing rooms, discovered working with lights and different techniques. I began to work for vorm productions a video production company. We do many video projects together and I work on scripts, shotlists, production and concepts. I also started out working for myself as a freelancer photographer next to my studies.
Now I recently graduated cum laude from the Willem de Kooning Academy and want to devote my time and energy to photography. Being a nomad, traveling around for jobs and shooting everywhere I go. I love portraits, travel photography, capturing people in a spontaneous way, working for brands and organizations. I get so enthusiastic of shooting energetic events like big festivals with good music and happy people. Or shooting at the yachtweek where every scenery looks like it should be printed A0 and hang on my wall. Or fashionweek where the outfits and people are art on itself. I get to shoot at such beautiful places, travel and meet so many cool people because of this dreamjob. Every workday for me is doing what I love and that doesn't feel like working at all. My work never stops, when I don't have my camera around and am not supposed to shoot I am still thinking and looking for the perfect light, creative angles, photogenic moments and people. My work never stops because it is truly my passion.
