Since my graduation from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2003 I've worked as a freelance director of photography. Shooting narrative, documentary as well as commercial work for 18 years now. Content-driven camerawork with a good sense of light, atmosphere, movement and detail. On this website you can find, apart from my recent showreel, something about me and a small selection of my work. Enjoy!
A brand new roller-coaster series for the online channels of public broadcaster KRO NCRV. Directed by Ivo van Aart and produced by NL film.
A brand new series for broadcaster KRONCRV exclusively for the online crowds. Our main Character Souraya is haunted by a hacker. Once he has her password things start to spiral out of control with the flick of a switch…
Creating a world around Souraya in three different timelines we wanted to make sure the audience follows the high pace action every step of the way. Making big differences instead of subtle ones seemed especially important since the series is aiming at the younger crowds.
Choosing a bold mix of 4:3, 16:9 and 1:2.39 ascpect ratio’s and mixing different period lenses did the trick. At any time you can feel where you are in the story. Although we had a tight budget we were able to squeeze out a few Technocranes, dolly’s, drone’s and Mövi scenes thanks to some clever scheduling and an amazing camera- and light crew with lovely people who supported the look all the way.
Every once in a while, when the audience is expecting to see one thing, you have to show them something else

I've learned one thing in filmmaking: to work with one strong idea
