About

I’m a self taught photographer with a passion for wildlife and travel. By having some flexibility in my professional life, I have been able to dedicate more time and resources to my foremost interests: photography, travel and wildlife.

With my home in Netherlands, my exploration area started off in South-East Asia, where I partly grew up, then Africa and after that Latin America. I even started to explore my own continent in the last few years! After quite a few trips just checking highlights-lists, photography has become more and more an important subject during my trips. Nowadays I prefer the solo and slow-travel, remote “wild” places and sometimes returning to places of interest I’ve been before. Spending more time in one place allows for a more focused exploration, and yields better results for my photography. Shorter trips on trodden paths, makes it a bit harder to capture unique images that differentiate from other photographers who came there before you.

“Selfie” at Sea Lion Island, Falkland Islands (using a tripod and app on my smartphone)

In the past years I traveled to Southern Africa several times; mainly focusing on the wildlife and volunteering in conservation. Also my latest trip to a remote place like the Falkland Islands was many focused on photographing wildlife; so I stayed longer at each location. This way of travelling provides the opportunity to create more differentiated work and unpredictable results, due to inspiration you get from being in an environment, something you would never had had, while just ticking off a highlights list. And an off-day, having no results at all,  is mostly compensated by lifetime memories, which I could only have experienced by keeping the camera down for a while.

This blog is intended to share my travel stories and showcase pictures taken in those remote and “wild” places. Between the lines I might share some travelling and photography tips. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
