For Rabobank I drove all the way to the north of the Netherlands. There I had to photograph a couple who moved from shanghai to a very tiny village in Groningen.

They moved her for the beautiful nature and the silence. And yes sometimes silence is gold…

‘De Huismeester’ is a coffee cafe close to Schiphol Airport. They have a great ambiance where you can drink really good coffee. You can just sit there and relax or take place in the windowseat with youre laptop to work.

I made a portrait of the two managers who run this place commissioned by Schiphol group.

Reportageportrait of the Cactus caretaker in the Arboretum in Rotterdam

This week I had a portrait assignment for the Rotterdam UitAgenda. I made a portrait photo of Jan, caretaker and lover of cactus who works in the Arboretum in Rotterdam.

Every week he comes to the Arboretum to take care of the cactuses as a volunteer in the greenhouses. For me as a photographer it was quite an painfull photoshoot. Every now and then I went down on my knees and I had a big neelde in my buttock 😅

The editorial will be published mid-March. Writer Laura van Mourik interviewed Jan and makes the middle page of the magazine perfect.

Photographing underwater

Already 1,5 year I am photographing for the Rotterdam UitAgenda. I make portraits of people who are very important for the art and culture sector but are normally not in the spotlight.

In the photo above I’m making a portrait of the gardener of the NAI museum in Rotterdam. Besides the garden he also makes sure that the ecosystem in the pond stays perfect. Therefor I thought lets make underwater shots.

I borrowed special gear, putted on a wet suit and went in to the water. It was a rainy cold April day, but it was so much fun to create this photo. To make something different from my usual portraits

Campaignshoot for Ranzijn petstore

For Ranzijn I shot the openings campaign. We photographed pet owners together with their pets. In this photo we photograph Marcel with his two cats in his garden.

It was very nice to make to portrait these people with the animals that they love. We used a boomarm with a movable studiolight on it so we could respond quick cause the animals where not realy sitting still haha.

Cow tits, a Rotterdam Delicacy.

For Gers! Magazine I photographed a typicaly Rotterdams delicacy: Uierboord or also pronounced as cow tit, eh yes, cow tits. What it tastes like? In my oppinion discusting. It is swampy sour meat not my cup of tea.

Fun fact: The butcher who makes it, and who is here in the photo, doesn’t like it either

IFFR has a new tiger

The International Film Festival Rotterdam has a new tiger they can add up to their team. From now on I’m photographing all the talks, party’s, QandA’s and portraits of directors.

Very happy to work with a team of very talented photographers. Normally as a photographer you work alone and this is a very welcome variation. Being in a team creating together a good photo report is great.
