I live in a village near Amsterdam in the north of Holland, close to the North Sea and dunes; places I love to wander around.
I have always been interested in photography, but never that stoked on shooting. But when I went on a trip for several months I started shooting more and more. Back in Holland I saved up some money to buy a DSLR, and started shooting more often at my sur-roundings like the beach and became more interested in surf pho-tography.
After a while I wanted a bit more of a challenge. So I went to the Photo Academy in Amsterdam, and started to shoot film again. Shooting film gives me a lot more opportunities to experiment with developing and printing. Nowadays I only shoot film and I use all kinds of cameras from 35mm to medium and large format. At this moment I am working on a book that represents the persistence of the North Sea surfer who has to endure the ice-cold North Sea to wait for the perfect wave.
