Something about me.
First of all, I love to shoot stories.
For me It’s all about getting the wright frame, the right light and theright feeling that the story needs.
A good story has to have te right framing. It’s great to create a story through the lens.
After studies at the graphic school of Art (Eindhoven) and the filmacademy (Brussels) I start working for television. The focus, timespeed and dealing with unforseen situations is something I love and this expertise is very useful for both drama and television productions.
Also the adventure of getting on the road, see a lot of different people and travelling all over the world is a great feature of working as a DOP/cameraman. It’s great to discover all the beauty around us….
