These dogs are amazing

I recently made a photo reportage for Hulphond Nederland, a charity which provides very special dogs for people in need. Think of disabled people, people who suffer from epilepsy, PTSS and all sort of trauma. It is amazing how these wonderful dogs can improve one’s quality of life. The field in which they operate, as […]

Entwined and precious

I volunteer at a bio organic farm as a documentary photographer. A lovely family with a dedication and a work ethic which blows me away every time I am at the farm. I experience quite some stress at my work at this moment which means that today when the sun is shining, I am behind […]

Back to analog and monochrome

Once in a while I switch to shooting analog and I never regret it. The sheer joy of using a camera like the Olympus OM2-n and the results themselves, makes me want to switch to analog for good. Having said though, I don’t want to part with my Leica’s either….This picture was taken at the Katwijk […]

Greatness

Nature surpasses all concepts of greatness. The wonderful thing is that you can be awed by it in so many ways. As I live in Amsterdam now, all the places that are not occupied by concrete or cars are safe havens for the mind. I took this picture in the Westerpark, a park along a […]

When I walked across the boulevard of Scheveningen, I noticed this pattern in the sand. I immediately imaged it in black and white, although I had a color negative film, Porta 400, loaded in the […]

You see me standing at a beautiful, serene place in the Dutch polder where the nature is let alone in the sense that it is not being cultivated and nature management is kept minimal. On this picture you see the […]

Winter-ouch!

The winter in the Netherlands has been very mild so far. So when we did experienced a little snow, many got out to enjoy the lovely weather it was accompanied by. In my case, I jumped on my bike to take some pictures. As I cycled along the meadows, I noticed the lines of the […]

All by myself

Everybody needs a bit of ‘me-time’ once and awhile, don’t we? The scenery you see here is a great place to be; the woods surrounding the Kroller Muller Museum. Next to me, my beloved Yashica TLR.  When processing the picture I noticed the pockets of my pants stuffed with my keys and iPhone. Pants with […]

Bi-cycle view‏

Reading a very inspiring post on Henri Cartier Bresson and his use of perspective and composition, I’ve come to realise more than I have ever done before that observation, timing and foremost patience is key to capture a picture that stands out from others you have taken. It has become a sort of worn out statement […]
