My Occupation Freelance photographer
My Bio I am a professional photojournalist and a very keen street photographer. I like to make documentaries, but I like editorial portraits and music and theatre photography as well. People are having a central role in my photography. Emotions and the acting of people are major ingredients. At location I am at my best, since improvisation is one of my strengths. I try to keep any manipulation to the minimum, during and after taking the photos. I photograph the things as they appear in front of my camera. Ambient light is my favourite light.
I have a daily weblog, with lots of street photography:

Books by this author

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
bicycles. Well, maybe not the nest book, but a next book certainly will. Hope to make a book about Indonesia as well, but I have to go there first...
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
My favorite photographers are amongst others: Ed van de Elsken, James Nachtwey, Erwin Olaf, Jan Grarup
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Once Upon A Time by Ed van der Elsken (not read it, but see it ;) )
