Once in the field I spend a few solid years working as a lighting technician in the Dutch motion picture industry.

Learning how to build up your set from the bottom and keep it flowing with safety, teamwork, the schedule, logistics,

the cast&crews mood and the artistic and storytelling contribution in mind. Those last points are the one's you 

start out with but as you go you learn that there is so much to hold in respect once governing a filmset.

As a cameraman I have shot so much television items that I have lost count. For a few television programs I have

shot the leaders. 

As a cinematographer I've shot documentaries of which some I directed myself too. This goes for some music videos I shot as well. 

Still one of my best experiences was shooting the clip with Bruce Engler in New York City. A real guerrilla project

but as you might know, New York is just made for shooting fantastic productions. I love that city.

As a filmmaker I have helped numerous companies with creating video content for their marketing 

and communication needs. 

And as a DP or Director of Photography I have shot numerous short drama films and commercial video's. With the years I will work

to ad beautiful short story's to the list and eventually my first feature.

Not without gratitude I must have at least met a thousand people during jobs in my work.

For as far as I can recall, my shoots have brought me to places like Tokio, Curacao, New York, Berlin, 

Kuwait, Spain, London, yeah even Belgium haha. The list goes on.

Besides that I posses a friendly character. I believe in the great importance of the mental mood

and the well being of relations in any field of our work. Whether it's the director working with the actors or the gaffer

instructing the electricians, if the mood is good all work is done better.

That's why a good personality is so important for the people I like or choose to work with. It doesn't mean 

I can't be tired and a little grumpy, our work can be tiresome. But I know what's important.
