Born in 1983 in Holland, I have been interested in aviation and photography since years and decided from early on I wanted to become a pilot. At the age of 14 I started flying and at my 21st I had my first job as a First Officer on the Fokker 50 Turboprop. For a few years I flew for various companies and airlines in Europe, Africa, Asia and Afghanistan. About 2 years later I was hired by a Dutch company on the 737 Next Generation where I have flown almost 5 years and logged thousands of flying hours all over Europe and Northern Africa. Currently flying with a leading cargo-airline the 747-400 and 747-8 Freighter in a global operation to all the exotic corners of the world. My other passion is photography, and because of my job and passion for aviation I have become specialized in aviation photography, though capturing landscapes and cultures in the frame of my camera is becoming another specialization of mine.
