Strength and vulnerability are united in my photography.
My photography is about people. The reoccurring theme in my work will always be ‘people’, even when I make a landscape series. This approach took shape during my studies at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam. I graduated in 2005, specialising in ‘Portrait on location’. After graduating, I got acquainted with several different sides of photography, and worked in in a commercial studio making stills and images for advertising.
I have a passion for photographing people and I developed my own unique style. I prefer to shoot on location and look for a location that adds to the portrait. In a relaxed setting, I make people feel comfortable. Then, during the time of concentration in the photo shoot, I look for that moment of genuineness. This genuineness is what continues to fascinate me.
