I was born in Amsterdam in 1970, where I also graduated from the Dutch Film Academy (NFTA) in 1997, BA Camera and Lighting.
Until recently I have been mostly working as a 1st A.C. on a broad variety of both Dutch and international features, commercials, tv series and documentaries, but also as DoP, shooting 2nd unit, or operating, whenever I saw the chance.
My 15+ years of experience as an assistant have given me the opportunity to work with a host of very different people, for some great directors and DoP’s, under an even wider range of circumstances and conditions, each resulting in movies with totally different styles and signatures.
This peek in so many unique kitchens I believe has provided me with a solid base, ample technical skill and experience, plus the conviction that film style should serve the script. (and that a big part of my job is adapting to that)
My keen photographic eye, hungry to tell stories through strong visuals, is shifting focus more towards my career as a Director of Photography, here is my PORTFOLIO, enjoy!
AC/focuspuller credits include:
Features such as Zwartboek (Blackbook) (for which I also earned a 2nd unit DoP credit), The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian, Jackie Chan’s Who Am I?, Het Zusje Van Katia (Katia’s Sister), Tiramisu, Vet Hard (Too Fat Too Furious)
Many commercials and virals for international clients, most recently: VW, Amstel, Sony, Toyota, McDonalds, Deutsche Bank, Whiskas, Praxis, Eneco, Telfort, Centraal Beheer, Hertog Jan…
