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 more than 20 years and more recent as a photographer. Alone or in collaboration with the director of photography, the aim is to adapt the atmosphere on stage and make it suitable for television or cinema, without losing the artistic form. Demanding lighting situations are common for most every performance. Productions from NDT Nederlands Dans Theater and Dutch National Opera & Ballet have always been a challenge. These stages are known by audiences worldwide for their superior level of quality.
Performances by The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, rock concerts, other theatre performances and tv shows are also part of my job as a vision engineer.
As a photographer I am fond of working in front of the stage. Being close to were it all happens makes me feel most connected. To tell the story and share my own point of view is most important to me.
