I am a photographer based in Rotterdam, who specializes in portraits. People are the main subject, in my photography as well as my video work. I aim to capture transitional moments, the fractions of time in which the person shows their subconsciousness. The images can be characterized by a typical atmosphere; intuitive, sometimes raw and most of all engaging.
Collaboration is key to find the open atmosphere I’m looking for, so I like to build conversation and trust with the person to find out what will work for them. I’ve worked with all kinds of clients; my commissioned work ranges from concerts and band photography to fashion or corporate portraits. The aim is always to find that essence of a person, in a form that best suites the context of the portrait.
In my personal projects I enjoy looking for a more experimental approach, which can stand on its own, but also functions as a catalyst for ideas for my commissioned work. This allows me to find freedom within the form and discover portraits in a new light.
