Netherlands Netherlands


I am a Dutch freelance photographer who is specialized in a typical Dutch regatta: Skûtsjesilen. A regatta with former cargo ships (some are more than 100 years old!). These ships have been transformed through the years into racing yachts, but with their typical characteristics preserved. I have been sailing in competition with these ships for about 10 years but for health reasons unfortunately had to give up my active career as a crew member. Then I decided to attend the races with my camera. Now I am photographing the regatta's for various newspapers and magazines.
