I have more than 18 years experience as a professional fashion & beauty photographer. Specialised in Lingerie and Swimwear. I work on location for clients worldwide.


I have studied fashion design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht and worked as an international hair & make up artist for 12 years, before I became a fashion & beauty photographer. 


I am very passionate about my job and love to create beautiful imagery that have an uplifting, and sensual feeling. I especially enjoy shooting in natural settings. My photographs are the result of good teamwork and beautiful ingredients.


Depending on the requirements of the shoot and the usage needed. Please contact me and let me know the details of your production and I will send to you a customised quote.
