I was born in the Netherlands where I grew up learning photography from my grandfather, an avid photographer an engineer from Indonesia.
My base is near the financial center of Germany, Frankfurt am Main, from where I start photo trips around the globe. I live in Hofheim with my wife Sonja, who is a freelance painter and fine artist. Click on Painted Art if you want to see a wide variety of Sonja´s beautiful work.
Photography has been my greatest passion as long as I can remember and has become a serious hobby that helps to express my creativity. I specialize in wildlife and street photography. My ultimate goal is to capture the essence of a subject's character with substance as well as technical perfection. I guess the following quote says it all: "To take a photograph is to align the head, the eye and the heart. It's a way of life." Henri Cartier-Bresson.
All my work is available for commercial use and fine art prints. Please inquire by sending me a message, using the Contact box if your interested in buying my work.
I hope my pictures could inspire you to also serve and protect the exiting wildlife around us.
