In the past 29 years I have been working all over the world on more than 1500 productions as Director of Photography.
My field of work contains drama-productions, commercials, music videos, documentairies and corporate image film shot on film, digital cinema, hd-cam or Red Epic-X. Most pleasure I find in working with actors in drama productions, with state of the art techniques and equipment in order to tell the most beautiful story.
My colleagues describe me as creative, young of heart, approachable and open-minded. I’m a driven person, supportive to directors and actors at work and I’m in the lucky possession of a good mood. I love to experience and try new equipments and learn new techniques as I am a fast learner.
Working Experience and Education
After my secondary education I studied ‘Directing play’ at the Academy of Dramatic Art in Amsterdam for one year. From 1983 until 1987 I worked as Lighting Technician for S.K.V.E. in Eindhoven. From 1987 until 1990 I worked as a Lighting Technician and Gaffered in a variety of commercials, corporate image films and from 1990 onwards I focussed on camera work.
In 2010 followed a workshop 3D in Los Angeles, by Geoff Boy.
In 1992 I established my own company and have been working as an independent Lighting Cameraman and Director of Photography ever since. Former boardmember and still active member of N.S.C (Netherlands Society of Cinematographers).
