Hi, nice of you to be interested in me!

Graphic Designer

Photographer

Born in 1966 in the south of the Netherlands. I studied Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK).
Since my graduation in 1998 I have my own studio and work as a independent Graphic Designer, Web-Application Developer and Website designer, in a wide variety of business applications. Particularly interested in combining good graphic design with custom made programming using PHP and MS-SQL databases. Specialisms: Graphic design, Type-design, Webdesign (Wordpress, Opencart, OS-commerce, Custom Made), PHP programming (Laravel framework).

You can contact me for your creative concepts, designing corporate identities, flyers, brochures, periodicals, reports etc.. In addition I also design and develop websites. Even I can build special online applications. More information? Please visit my website.

_MG_3239-webNext to my work as graphic designer I'm also photographer. During my 5 year study photography was also one of the main courses. In that day we worked still analogue. Developing techniques, working with a technical camera, mostly Black and White. But years I didn't do much with photography. It only since my wife started her webshop with hair and cosmetics for the dark skin, I picked up with photography. Starting with a packaging shots but ending in studio work for a supplier of hairpieces.

My wife has become last year a make-up artist and during that study I photographed her models. So I catched up my skills as photographer very quickly.
Since then I work often together with her (see her website) and we did a couple of fashion shows with a nice result.

To step up my techniques and creativity as a photographer in 2016 I start following  a portrait and lighting course from Susanne Middelberg, a known photographer in the Netherlands.

Collaborations
Do you need a photographer? I'm always looking for interesting collaborations. I am available for TFP work, but because of limited time I am very selective. If you are a model, MUA or stylist and think a collaboration will benefit our portfolios please drop me a message by using the form here.
