Originally from Holland, I’ve been traveling around the world extensively for work and holiday. Having seen both the worlds disaster areas and its many beautiful places, I developed a passion for travel to experience and document life. A passioned underwater photographer, I spend as much time as I can in and under water.My favourite underwater photography subjects are macro and super-macro but I also like the bigger stuff, wrecks and general underwater and travel photography. As much as I like creating nice looking images, my real interest is in learning more about a subject to be able to document it more in-depth. Next to photographing and editing I love teaching – especially sharing and fuelling the enthusiasm for a subject – and have experience in teaching and developing course materials. I am a PADI certified dive instructor.
Having worked many years as a member of a global emergency fast response team in the humanitarian sector, I am self-motivated and have a positive attitude, thriving in multi-cultural and demanding environments. I work well independently but like working with a team and am looking forward to develop myself on a personal and professional level with interesting and challenging media projects.
