About Me

To all retouchers that intend to send a friendrequest:
I'm totally aware of the lack of post production on  my images. If I need help I will know where to find you. Till that time do NOT send me a friendrequest.

I'm a photographer from the Netherlands, traveling around the world for training, holiday and photography.

I can be contacted via Modelmayhem, the above mentioned insta account, Kik (photographsofyou) or by phone (06 2156 2211)

Volunteerswork as teamleader and chairman of a k9 sar team.


Models interested in a fresh perspective are welcome for tfcd shoots. And if you insist.. can pay me too..  ;-)

Photographers looking for traveling models:
no next dates known yet.

Contact the models directly to make arrangements with them. I only feed, drive and lodge them ;-)


Planned in the near future:
Canada (Calgary, Vancouver)
UK (Northumberland & London)
France (Troyes & Montpellier area)
USA westcoast & Las Vegas
Rules of engagement:

Gas money:See payment
Payment: I will not pay you, unless someone is paying me. However if you are not local and I like your looks and what you have to offer - I may fly you in and back as compensation to make a shoot happen. Also I will help you catch other shoots while in my area to help you make the trip worthwhile.
Ability to catch a plane or train a must. See above.
Cell phone-MUST BE OFF: I know it's a vital appendage but I promise you won't die with it off for a few hours.
Release required and legal photo ID. If you are lying about your age,you will have to suck it up. The fact that I want to shoot with you should have convinced you that I think your looks are shootable. I don't care about age, but I still want to know.
Pushing the barriers of what is possible to what is impossible thereby creating THE image is a must. In other words: I do my best...  please do your best as well..
"At this time: Anything in that category can, will and should be discussed prior to you confirming our shoot.
Dating. This is not a dating site! Do not ask me out to dinner, unless you're buying.
Transport: I have no problem picking you up from an airport and getting you there after our shoot. Thus complying with my “returning as received or better” policy.
