About

The course of life. Old traditions. Southern Sun. Polderland. Enough of messing around? Zeven – Bremen – Milano – Lelystad – Hilversum – Zeist – Loosdrecht – Almere. Leisure – travel. Wanderlust – the decision to go abroad was easy. Milano! Fashion, Culture, Café and 3 months of fog … Italy – Milan. Professional image editing and design. Vogue Covers and the Pirelli calendar, books for models … very beautiful. Imaging for Gucci and Bulgari … everyday work. Sounds good, was fantastic. In 1994 I founded a studio with two colleagues. Focus on professional imaging (fashion, jewelry and tourism, I make the most wonderful beaches and layouts for publishing (Fit for Fun, Capitol travel guides). Enough of Italy. We differ too much. The Netherlands: welcoming and crowded! Housing is expensive, true … Flevoland. A soothing kind of peace, tight, almost graphic, interesting and beautiful. Why is everyone against Almere?
