After 7 great years in education – teaching groups of adolescents – I retrained myself in 20007 as a professional journalism / documentary photographer.

From the beginning I have been invited to give lectures for photographers: how do you do that? Thanks to winning photography awards such as the  Binnenlands Nieuws- Zilveren Camera, exhibitions and international publications. In my lectures and presentations I tell about my journey and approach to become a successful photographer.

The special themes of my reports are often a reason to invite me to a lecture, discussion evening or to participate in a panel. My project Sinking Cities – awarded with the Zilveren Camera Award 201-  has made me an expert in the field of subsidence and the consequences of climate change. Since 2014 I have also been invited as a speaker by organizations, musea, universities, to engineers and experts working in the water and environmental sector, urban planning and architecture. 

In  addition, I provide my expertise in the field of visual storytelling as a permanent jury member to the TV program Het Perfecte Plaatje, an RTL 4 program about photography.

I offer 60 + minute (on-line) personalized mentoring sessions with photographers, tailored to individual aspirations and goals. 

These tutorials are aimed at those who aspire to become professionals and the driven amateurs: Anything you would like to know. How to build a visual story, explore ideas generation, research, project planning, executing projects and editing. Portfolio review, anything that would help to take your work to the next level.

Please contact me by email for mor information.

Coaching & Workshops
I also give photography workshops and inspirational talks amongst others at the Koaching Akademie: a training institution in personal growth and leadership, in which creativity & innovation are central.
