jazz and portrait photographer


I don’t believe in doing business the client-contractor kind of way. For me, that equals old school, top down management and framed, stiff relationships in which I can’t imagine both parties of the transaction being truly happy. I believe in a personal approach.

I don’t need a bankaccount with a million euro’s, nor dollars. What I do need is to be doing what I love. I believe by doing that, I will be able to live the way I love to live.

I believe in collaborating in a win-win situation. Which, in my opinion, only happens when both parties are acting out of personal love for something or someone. Work with full engagement, without compromise. Work for the things you love and the word itself will disappear. So let's get personal! Allow us to connect and make room to create things that otherwise wouldn’t see the light of day.

"If you want to work with an open, personal and approachable photographer who thinks with you AND for you, I'm your girl."

‘5x Typical’ is a series of music based interviews with surprise... musicians. What do musicians listen to? While cleaning, during sexy time or when working out? Do they have specific songs for specific moments? Or do they listen to music to influence their emotions? Every week, a new interview, a new musician, new inspiration.
