On this page, you’ll find a number of projects that I’ve been working on. Don’t expect difficult lightning settings or long lists of demands: I prefer to works intuitively and be that fly on the wall, so all my models or subjects have an amazing, relaxed time during the shoot.

Personal Branding: Danielle Kool of Cabbage
Sometimes you’re in luck and a photo session is so effortless that it’s hard to make a selection. That’s what happened when I photographed Danielle of Cabbage. We’ve known each other for years and in that case, it’s just awkward for five minutes and only great shots after that. Lot’s of laughter, great result!
EVENT: Zinderende Zomerzondag, The Archies
Dutch band The Archies asked me to register their performance at the Zinderende Zomerzondag in Eindhoven. I created a number of black-and-white photo’s that I’m happy to share. This kind of photography (event / behind-the-scenes) always confirms that I picked the right trade!
Website and social media: ROC Nijmegen
Fot the image database of the ROC Nijmegen middle school, I created various photos on three locations. We asked some students for consent, and tried to mimic everyday situations. The “extra” was that we took into considerations the viewing directions and other leading lines in our photos. That way, it’s possible to direct your viewer or visitor to for instance buttons or links on your website (conversion-optimalisation). Coming from an internet background, this brought two worlds together for me!
Promotion: Gemeente Nijmegen
For a brochure for the city of Nijmegen, I had to photograph blues and greens. My logical choice: Kronenburger Park. A variety of regular and drone photography.
Event: ColorRun Campingground Olmenveld
Photography takes ypou places. Someone notivced my camera while I was on a holiday and before I knew it, I was asked to create a photo reportage of the local colorrun. Of course, environmental paint was used! A small impression.
Promotie: BRIES, the BLOEMRIJK musical
For musical group Bries, I was asked to shoot the promotional material for the musical Bries. “Promotional material”? More like fairytale portrait!
Magazine: A number of portraits for BEP Magazine #2
For the Nijmegen-based magazine BEP I was asked to portrait a number of known women from Nijmegen. Since the magazine is not out yet, I’m leaving out the names. Luckily, we
‘ll always already have the photos:

Private project: Contemplative street photography in Paris
I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a Valérie Jardin workshop in Paris: See Paris with your heart. I’m happy to share some of the amazing pictures I took during this week.
Event: Ons Huis, Nederasselt
LCommunity center Ons Huis (Our House) wanted to show the community all the things that they organize (focused on elderly people of 55+yo) , and asked me to take some pictures. I tried to capture the spirit of that afternoon with minimal instructions, so lots of freedom. Amazing to do, with these photos as a result!
Portret: Rachelle Verhage
In the south-west of the Netherlands, on the beach of Vrouwenpolder, I photographed free spirit Rachelle Verhage. ”You tell me, you are the expert.” For me, that means letting go of assumptions and just let things happen. That will get you amazing images like this.
