Netherlands Netherlands


My photography career depends on coincidences. Although sailing has been a passion since my early childhood, and I soon combined sailing with photography, it remained mainly a hobby. It started with dinghy sailing on lakes in the Netherlands, followed by crewing offshore on a 16.5 meter yacht. Many years and races later (including Gotland Rund, Cowes Week, Hook of Holland-Harwich), the ship was sold and I started laser sailing. Through my board position within the Laser Organization Netherlands and the Dutch Sailing Federation I ended up in the organization and promotion of sailing. Photography played an increasingly important role in this. After completing my administrative periods, I fully focused on making sailing visible and promoting the sport through photography.
