About the Artist - 2 more artworks

I am a self-taught photographer, working freelance since 1989. Starting off in architecture-photography, I coincidently enrolled into the Dutch filmindustry for which I began making publicity stills. I have made stills for some 40 Dutch shorts and feature films.
Since late 1999 I take glamour/nude pics for Dutch Playboy Magazine, and since then I did more and more nudes. I have published in several magazines in Holland (Playboy, Men’s Health, JFK) and abroad (Black&White, Snoecks, FHM, Men’s Health Germany), and contributed pictures to quite a few photo-books.
In november 2013 I released my first own (152 page) photobook, “Mooi”, which is sold out now.
I also make portraits for (a.o.) actors, casting agencies and do modeltests. My portraits were published in Dutch magazines like Viva, Panorama, Qui Vive, Avanta and Elegance.
In 1995 I won a Kodak Camera D’Or Award for my portrait of actress Amanda Ooms.

Off course I shoot digital nowadays, but I started out with an analog Canon A1 and 500c/m Hasselblad. And developing my own films, and printing my own prints in my darkroom.
I don’t think I’m a glamour- or fine-arts photographer in the traditional way, I often say I make nude-portraits. Because it’s very important to me that there’s something typical of the model herself in the pictures, I never work with a pre-fixed image that I only just have to fill in with whatever goodlooking female body. My pictures always are a cooperation between me and the model.
I seldom book professional models for my uncommissioned work, and I love a natural look, natural beauty is important, so no heavy make-up or exaggerated styling! Most of my work is not or hardly retouched.
A location is preferred above studiowork, so the location can be a part of the whole image, and I can be surprised by the possibilities of the surroundings and the available light.
There is not a special ‘message’ in my portraits and nude pictures. What I’m trying to capture there is the beauty and ‘power’ of women…. ”
