about me

Growing up between big buildings, noisy surroundings, traffic jams and lots of exciting people with different stories means being inspired a great part of the time. 

When I'm out there creating imagery I'm always interested in the stories of the people I capture. Therefore I always try to find a balance in faces, surroundings and moments. 

For the past few years young people have been the most interesting to photograph. They're full of ambition, strong emotions and belielfs. But most important of all: they're not scared to dream big. 

Being part of that big dream is what keeps me going. I mean, let's be honest: life's a little too short to sweat all the small stuff. Let's do some big things together.
