As nature and landscape photographer I want a lot. So I do a lot. Not only do I want every picture to reflect the feeling of the moment. But it should also evoke respect for nature and photography. I want to pass on my passion for nature and photography in different ways. By means of articles, books, workshops and photography trips, I hope to inspire other, likeminded people. In the group of entrepreneurs who make up Starling Reizen I found allies to help stimulate respect and attention for nature in our society.
You can feel that these images were made from a deep connection with nature. Out of respect. And as a tribute to the stillness that it offers us. Then and there, but also here and now.
My photographs have been published in national and international photography magazines and have received many awards. They are commissioned by public and private companies, tourist boards, advertising agencies but also by interior designers and private individuals. This way I bring the beauty of nature into their living or working space.
Landscape photography has become a way of life. It starts with my love and knowledge of nature, which I gladly share with photographers who not only pursue technical perfection in an image, but who also look with the same respect at nature whilst practising photography. I learned most from my own mistakes. And I would also like to offer that opportunity to other photographers.
Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
