About Me

"Do more of what makes you happy"

I was born near Amsterdam in the Netherlands and  immigrated to the USA when I was 17 years old; I credit my sense of style and aesthetics to my Dutch heritage and sense of craft to my American education.
All of the pictures in the portfolio are  collaborations. I work with people of all kinds of backgrounds, from young to old, from beginners to seasoned pro's. The goal is to put you at ease and in an environment that makes creativity a real possibility.

I have retired from the commercial photo business and all of my work is now involved in  making art nudes for exhibition in art galleries, calender's and books. You can see that in the portfolio galleries, which are filled nudes in one form or another.  Ergo the warning about NSFW.

I also teach the nude as a subject for serious art making. Besides the nude, I have taught fashion and lighting at a variety of schools, colleges, universities and workshops for the past 40 years. A few times a year I hire models for the workshops; if you're interested in being an art model for that, leave me a message here. 

My photographs have been published in magazines such as Carrie Leigh's Nude Magazine, Model Society, View Camera Magazine, Camera Arts Magazine and Peau Magazine. Finally, I am not the only person with ideas for pictures. If you have an interesting project in mind, please feel free to send me a message on how we can work together.

"Peter was professional, accommodating, and accomplished in the photographic arts. There was excellent communication throughout the entire process including: timely confirmation of the assignment booking details, feedback and collaboration during the photo shoot, and immediate distribution. I enjoyed our time together and I am inspired to continue more creative works in the future." more less

"Peter has an eye like no one else I have worked with. Even though I've modeled for art nudes more times than I can count, working with him was a brand new and illuminating experience, and the work he made is unique and beautiful!"
