When I picked up my first camera, back in 2002, my world changed forever. Coming from a fast-paced, money-driven world of commerce, all of a sudden I found myself in a world with a completly different set of rules. A world driven by the passing of the seasons, the flow of the tides and the rhythm of the light. It felt like I had found my voice. It felt like comming home.
Being a landscape and nature photographer means much more to me than just camera’s, lenses and landscapes. To me, it is a way of life. It is a part of me. It is who I am and who I always will be. Becoming a full time professional landscape and nature photographer was a dream coming true. I’m living that dream every day.
Through my photography I am opening a window, showing the beauty and grace of our natural world. My message is as simple as it is clear; this is how I see the world. This is what I feel. It is a glimps into my soul. Through my landscape and nature photography I try to do my part in preserving what is right in this world. What should be cherished. Before it is lost forever.
To me, photography is an art form. It is much more than freezing the moment. In my work the world of photography and my world merge. Though I honour the classical approach to landscape photography, I realize my personal creative proces can make a difference. Every picture is a personal interpretation of reality. A window. Maybe, that window will let you see the world in a different way. I hope it’s a good way.
