Where I live
I live under the lighthouse in the seaside town of Scheveningen in the Netherlands. Having spent almost all of my life next to the ocean, my love for film & photography were born out of that element I have been most familiar with, the ocean. My first surf session was in France and I was hooked right away. I took this new found passion home and started surfing in Holland. Although not renowned for its quality waves, Holland does get the occasional swell and in recent years this has prompted a vibrant local surf culture. At that time I started filming & photographing friends, the beach, the surfers, and the tight-knit community of Scheveningen. Then it all started, I was asked to do editorial work for websites, magazines, as well as some related brands. Borders were crossed and along the way I discovered new styles of film & photography. Soon after www.underthelighthouse.com saw the light as a showcase and platform for further creative projects. To keep this creativity alive and to discover new styles in photography & film, I’m interested in working with fellow creative enthusiasts and brands. Wether it’s a commercial project or just a test shoot to build our mutual portfolio. As my portfolio grows, the lighthouse still stands and illuminates my dreams.
