ABOUT ME WHO I AM?
WHAT I DO
I bought my first camera as a young man and studied photography in the free Academy of Art in The Hague. I started as a professional photographer in my early Twenties but by circumstances, I had to choose for another career but after early Retired 15 years ago. I took back my first passion again, but this time in the digital era of photography.
My first step was to be a Freelance photojournalist and became A contributors for Demotix news photo agency with more than 500,000 visitors and 4,000 published news photos taken by me and two assignments for English newspapers The Guardian, and the Daily Mail.
I was one of the top contributors, unfortunately Demotix was taken over by another picture agency with new policy where there was no longer place for my type of photographer and I had to find another news agency to contribute and since 2014, I am a news Contributor/photojournalist for Newzulu.
With more 20 years experienced as a Freelance Photographer I also travel a lot and many of my work happens to be taken during my traveling.
