Londen conference AHFAP association for historical and fine art photography. November 2019.
I once studied at the Royal Academy in Den Bosch because I wanted to be a visual artist. Later, I came into contact with photography and discovered that this is where my quality lies.
Since 1987, I have had my own photo studio. What I like about my work is the combination of photographing art and the technical aspect of photography.
My studio carries out assignments for the cultural sector.
From 2007 to 2022 I worked as a photographer and consultant for the PK online project at The Rijksmuseum.
I was involved in the Night Watch project.
In 2015 and 2017 and 2022 I gave workshops at the congress 2 and 3D photography. Held at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and online.
Also workshops and presentations in London; AHFAB, in 2019 and 2020.
I am co-author of the manual for 2D objects for the Rijksmuseum and involved in the introduction of the guidelines for digitisation , as a guide for all photography in the museum.
I have also developed a quality control tool; the RIPT. Rijksmuseum Image Performance Tool.

At the Nationaal Archief in The Hague, I worked as a digitisation consultant on the Metamorfoze ABC project. I advised involved institutions on scanning or photographing paper heritage.
After working for the institute, I gave courses for new employees on digitising and assessing scans.
Now I give advice, lectures and workshops on the technique of modern reproduction photography to various institutions.
It gives me great satisfaction to immerse myself in the ever-evolving technique of photographing works of art as beautifully as possible. I consider it a privilege to do so with integrity and truthfulness.
