March 8, 2017 - Last week we visited the Landal GreenParks Strand resort Nieuwvlied-Bad in the Netherlands, which is situated next to the stunning beach of Nieuwvliet in Zeeland. (Dutch Flanders) Landal GreenParks combine great first class accommodations with fantastic natural surroundings which are definitely worth visiting.

With many places nearby to visit, such as Brugge, Gent, Sluis and Knokke, everything you need is right here. The beach, fresh air, stunning nature for long walks, perfect cycling routes or searching for sharkteeth on the beaches. Or if you like, you can just take it easy with all the relaxing facilities of this beautiful resort. We weren't bored for a second, and I would love to come back here someday!

Nov 26, 2016 - Again, I'm really delighted to announce that another one of my series is now completed.

Silence II is the successor to my first Silence series, in which I tried to let the specific elements stand out by capturing the tranquility and remoteness on different locations. The use of a simplistic style was essential to capture the distinguishing silence. In these series, the mood and tones are set in a way I could lay focus on the characteristics of certain locations, without being distracted by other elements.

Jun 20, 2016 - I had the great opportunity to work with Canon and host an inspiring Instameet in Rotterdam during the European 'Follow my Footsteps' campaign. I not only collaborated with Canon, but also with popular Instagrammer @bobsizoo. The whole experience was really fantastic, as I not only had the honor of telling people about creating inspirational photos with Canons pretty cool new gear, but also I enjoyed inspiring others in the 'Follow my Footsteps' campaign, which promotes creativity through photography. 

During the Instameet, around 60 buddy instagrammers came together to develop and capture great images during the event. It was an overwhelming success and a great deal of fun! We shot a range of images in a variety of different locations in Rotterdam, with urban dancers providing opportunities to capture some unique shots and watertaxis transporting the groups to the spectaculair locations.
