About

It’s about………. Capturing peoples character.

Born in ‘71 in Wijk bij Duurstede in the Netherlands, I’ve grown up knowing that I’ll never be able to use my eyebrows and that gives me less possibilities to express myself. With that I love to observe people in the way they use their mimicry and I found out that mimicry says almost everything about the character of this person. In the period when digital photography was introduced I started using my camera in all kinds of situations where people are involved. Nowadays I’m more focusing on making portraits, in my studio with a professional studiolight setup and on location by using daylight.

My photography is about communication, honesty, character, environment, light, stories and fun. The portrait must be perfect. That is my passion.
