My focus as an active lifestyle photographer is on capturing images of athletes. I’m available for hire for both commercial and editorial assignments, working in the Netherlands and throughout Europe.

I’m driven to photographing athletes’ lifestyles. Personal and sincere contact with these athletes is vital. I aim for my work to be accessible but not safe or conventional. My photos showcase the athlete’s energy, emotion and dedication, allowing viewers to really connect with and admire the athlete and their lifestyle. Timing and great light are essential elements for my work. Ultimately I like my photos to have a cinematic quality.
My photography helps strong brands build long term loyalty from their consumers, by showcasing their core values through capturing the hard work and characters of their athletes.

Currently I’m taking commercial assignments that fit my style and interests. I’m convinced of the value of doing personal projects. It keeps me inspired and allows me to showcase what I’m capable of, in addition to having the opportunity to work with top athletes. These include elite cyclists, world-class climbers, Olympic medalists and top football players.

Some of my clients include PSV Eindhoven, Klean Kanteen, adidas, Team Jumbo-Visma, Nationale Nederlanden and other brands.
