After obtaining the Professional Bachelor degree in Photography at NARAFI Brussels back in 2010, I started working as a freelance photographer in early 2011. For years I’ve combined a traveling and freelance lifestyle. Numerous trips with destinations like a.o. Cuba, Mexico, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Romania, Morocco, Israël & the Palestinian Territories, Canada & Nepal have been alternated with both commercial and personal work.

Clients include a.o. 076 Fietst | Albeda College | Brandloyalty | BredaPhoto | FeestDJRuud | International Film Festival Rotterdam | Natural Born Explorers | Possehl BV | RESPONSible Travel Peru | Uitgeverij Luster | SJEES magazine | Who Killed Joe?

Assistant photographer & Location scout
During my studies in Brussels I worked as an assistant photographer for Kris Van Beek and clients like Volkswagen, KBC Bank and Gazet van Antwerpen. Since then I have been assisting various photographers like Mark Engelen, Kurt Anthierens, Dana Romina, Peter Bak, Sebastiaan Knot a.o. In addition, I offer my services as a local guide, location manager and driver for both photo and video productions. I did so for Cologne based production company Natural Born Explorers shooting the Jack Wolfskin 2020 summer campaign in Rotterdam.

BredaPhoto International Photo Festival
Starting off as a production volunteer during the 2010 and 2012 editions of BredaPhoto, I was part of the organisation of this international biennial of photography for the 2014, 2016 & 2018 edition. The festival displays work of international renowned photographers as well as upcoming talent. The city of Breda welcomes around 80.000 visitors every two years, making it one of the bigger art events in the region. I was responsible for the production of the exhibitions both indoor & outdoor and the coordination of 250 volunteers and 150 students who build and run the festival. In autumn 2019 I traveled to Yangzhou, China to produce a BredaPhoto exhibition celebrating the 10 year anniversary of twin cities Breda – Yangzhou.

the 500 Hidden Secrets of …
Commissioned by publisher Luster from Antwerp (B) I worked on numerous editions of their city guides named ‘the 500 Hidden Secrets of …’. Editions include Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Paris and Rotterdam. These books are updated and reprinted regularly and some translated into French and published by Mardaga Éditions.

seeBreda & seeRotterdam
Next to working as a freelance photographer and inspired by the making of the 500 Hidden Secrets of Rotterdam, I became a city guide for seeRotterdam back in 2017. We provide guided city tours, mostly by bike. Together with owner Marijn, we decided to start up a similar business in my birthplace Breda. Logically going by the name of seeBreda, we organise city tours by bike and on foot for groups from 2 till 90 persons.
