Welcome and thank you for visiting my portfolio! I'm a Dutch photographer and vision engineer based in Amsterdam. With a tremendous interest in opera and ballet I am proud to be involved in the broadcast of these art forms for nearly 20 years and more recent as a photographer. By myself or in collaboration with the director of photography, the aim is to adapt the atmosphere on stage to a suitable form for television or cinema without losing the artistic form. Demanding lighting situations are common for most every show. Productions from NDT Nederlands Dans Theater and Dutch National Opera & Ballet have always been a challenge and they still are. Their stages provide a worldwide audience with superior level of quality.
Performances by The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, rock concerts and tv shows are also part of my job as a vision engineer.
As a photographer I am also fond of working with performing arts but in a whole different way. To tell the story and share my own point of view is very important to me. Being close to were it all happens makes me feel most connected.
Right now I'm working as set photographer for the feature film Coppelia.
