Hugs and kisses

19 february 2019


Each picture has its own story. When I showed this picture to Anne-Xin she said oh what cute hugging elephants. To elephants showing affection to each other like humans. Years ago I took this picture in Amboseli, Kenya. Two elephants playing and testing each other’s strength. This is especially important when they get older and want to start their own family. Now 8 years later my eyes paid attention to the ivory tusks and I was curios if they would be still alive today. Few people will know but every 15 minutes an elephant is poached. That’s about 100 each day and 30.000 a year. Killed for their ivory worth 850 dollar each kilogram.

It takes a lot of patience to make nice pictures. You need luck as well for extra ordinary pictures. This morning we met a couple of lions who killed a hippo the night before. Notch and 4 of his sons were specialized in killing hippos together. Eating a lot of hippo t-bones will make you sleepy and thirsty after all. This son of Notch woke up and was walking towards the small pool next to my car. Normally cats greet each other by rubbing heads but this time they gave a high-five. Maybe because of their wet manes, i don’t know but I was happy with this picture. Luckily I didn’t fall asleep and was sharp so I didn’t miss this shot. (Find more on


Pictures tell a story

22 januari 2019


Pictures looks so much better when they tell a story. An easy way to make pictures like this is when you benefiet from the interaction of animals. I tried this during the last years of my life as a photographer. It helps a lot when you are aware of the behavior from the different species. Try to learn as much of the behavior of the animals you want to photograph as you can. It will help you to be a better photographer. Good luck.

It took a while, but finally here it is, a brand new website. It would not have been possible without the support of my dear friend Naomi, but also not without the help of Bodhi, Jesse, Ron and Regine. And lost but not least I want to thank Eric Paap. 

This website shows some of my pictures which I made
over the last few years. Many of my journey's went to Africa, but you will also find pictures taken closer to home. If you're interessed in my photo's, take a look at the webshop where you can find postcards, books and pictures printed on Dibond. My agenda will keep you posted about my activities.

Through these blogs I want to give you a peak into my life and the stories behind the photo's.
I hope you enjoy this website as much as I do!
