I grew up around Rotterdam, a city that today is known as one of the better places to ride street BMX in. Thirteen years ago when I started riding BMX I could have never imagined that I'd be living in London now, travelling all over, working with the coolest people I've ever met. I also wouldn't have guessed that I'd be shooting photos of the people I saw in magazines back then. It's been quite an interesting journey when I think of it now.
The difference between riding bikes and photography isn't all that big, I think. Even when shooting all the other sports, you meet the same kind of determination, and the same amount of fun.
