Latest news:

Some exciting news coming up. I plan to publish Perpetual Motion, my book of Dutch seascapes by the end of this year! Because I’m self publishing and the costs are high, I will start a crowd-funding action soon. Stay tuned!

Also stay tuned for links to the new summer exhibitions at the online Blue Note Gallery. I will be participating in both Fragments (opening June 25th) and Roots & Reflections (opening July 2nd)

I am offering a brand new one-on-one in-person workshop called Voorbij de Blokkade (in English Beyond the Block). This is meant for photographers who are feeling a bit stuck or insecure about their work. Read more about this unique opportunity here.

This comng summer I will once again show my work at the Kunstmarkten Spaarndam. on Saturday July 13th and July 20th. Please stop by to say hello!

I grew up in the 50’s on the north-eastern coast of the United States. I was given my first camera when I was 18, following in my mother’s and grandfather’s footsteps. But life got in the way, as it sometimes does, so it wasn’t until after my retirement in The Netherlands that I started taking my photography seriously.

When I published my autobiography in 2015, I had no idea that, not even a year later, my life would be totally inundated by the desire to be a photographer… an expressive photographer. My love of photography had always been there. But suddenly the barriers broke, and the creative life I’d always denied myself came surging in. Recently I’ve started making more and more images that express my moods and emotional responses to the landscape. Photographing what lies beyond the simple truth of what I see.

My work has been published in On Landscape (UK), The Luminous Landscape (CA), and Natuurfotografie (NL).

I’ve always loved to write and, besides these articles and my book, I keep a blog (somewhat erratically) on various topics which you can find here under Essays.

As a photographer I’m committed to treat nature with respect. I’m therefore an ambassador for Nature First, an alliance for responsible nature photography.
