After having written about some projects by other creatives, I figured it was time to shed some light on my own work again. Here’s some series I’ve worked on for the past few months, both on assignment and as personal projects. These include covering the Rotterdam marathon, shooting with a young and talented racing driver sponsored by Red Bull, and shooting some crossfit for my portfolio.
Recently I was approached by Amber Dubach, a young student. She’s a student of a sport communications bachelor in Tilburg, and was interested in doing a short interview about my photography. The interview mainly centers on how I got to where I am, and the role sports play in my life.

Over the past months I’ve worked on a number of campaigns. Read on for some results, behind the scenes photos and the stories behind these shoots!
Some of the stories I’ve published here have been rather long, so I’d like to start a new series: the stories behind individual images. Let’s kick this off with this photo of Frank, a local running athlete, running on the roof of Eindhoven’s most photographed parking garage.
Recently I was invited to be a guest in a Dutch talkshow on photography called Cafe Obscura. We talk about a bunch of subjects like finding your own style, working on personal projects and making it in the photography business through honest marketing and focusing on a niche.
Recently I was asked to shoot a series of portraits of some proud scientists for Eindhoven University of Technology. My alma mater celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, and invited some of its foremost researchers to give a TED style talk highlighting their work. I was tasked with shooting a portrait of each scientist that would capture their proudness and determination.
At the recent Adidas Rockstars climbing competition, I completed a special multi day project where I shot portraits of all top competitors. Here’s what went on behind the scenes for this unique project!
Quick heads-up: this will probably turn out to be a rather lengthy story. Bear with me though as I’ll be sharing a truely unique story about Adam Ondra, often regarded as the world’s best climber. In 2013, I photographed Adam at his local climbing crag near Brno in Czech Republic. The story and image of him climbing an 8b route wearing a blindfold made its way around the online climbing community.
