Being a photographer and a parent means that you inevitably end up with a lot of photographs of your child. Now, I do not intend to bore the world with the thousands of family snapshots that I have shot over the years :-), but occasionally one of the photographs featuring my daughter is strong enough to stand on its own as an image, in my opinion.
My first photography project: in the summer of 2014 we were on holiday in East Sussex and the weathered wood of the piling and groynes on the beaches there really caught my eye.
I photograph flowers constantly: in our own garden, in gardens we visit, in the wild, on the side of the road, on holiday. The endless variety, the colours, the details and the life cycle of flowers keep inspiring me.
Welcome! I am an amateur photographer from the Netherlands (born in 1977). On this website I share my photo series and photo stories shot in and around my home town of Utrecht or while traveling abroad.
My interest is mostly nature photography – flowers, trees, insects, landscapes – but I also like photographing cities (streets and buildings) and street art.
I grew up with my father’s (and originally my grandfather’s) Nikon F2 + Nikkor 50mm f/2 AI. We had no other lenses so it really was one camera, one lens. Later we added an Olympus mju II for easier traveling.
Now I mostly shoot with a Fujifilm X-E1 + Fujinon 35mm f/1.4, which is basically a very similar setup to the old Nikon, but I also have an X-T2 and some other lenses, so the one camera, one lens approach no longer really applies.
