Thank you for visiting my website!

Photography is in my blood. Both my grandfather and father were photographers, so I’ve been taking pictures since I could hold a camera. When I was 16, I decided to go to Amsterdam to study photography at the Fotoacademie (Academy for Photography). During my time there I found out that fashion and advertising photography were the types of photography that I liked most. So, I decided to do internships at Oof Verschuren and Marcel van der Vlugt. It was so impressive! After completing my studies I decided to work as an all round photography assistant. This has opened many doors for me. I have worked for the biggest brands and magazines in the Netherlands: Tommy Hilfiger, Phillips, L’Oreal, Mercedes, Bacardi, Hunkemöller, Bijenkorf, Albert Heijn, Amstel, Elle, Avant Garde, Linda, Playboy, Elsevier, Man and many more.

After 11 years of assisting I decided to go to Curacao and work on my own as a freelance photographer!

Since then, I have done projects for Chicas Curacao, La Vida Magazine, Mini Sandcrabs, Juja Fashion, Lässig fashion, Little Hedonist, Duukies beach socks, Ramatouelle Beachwear, Shade Critters, Bomba kids fashion, Scubadoo diveschool, Bluefinn Boatcharters, Zanzibar, Janthielbeach, Pauleth Swimwear, Versakini Swimwear, Heidi Klein Swimwear, Trefle Swimwear, Holiday Rentals Curacao, Bon Bini Resort, Ruseler makelaar, Baoase Luxery Resort, Topmakelaar, Hammock & Hammock, Els van Barneveld real estate, Landmark real estate, Jip Studio, El Mexicano, Kooyman, HODA Magazine ,Insight magazine ,HUF magazine, GoWeekly magazine and many more…
