Yes! Thanks for asking. Send me an e-mail and I'm happy to get back to you.
Do you sell photographic prints?
I have never bought a print before. Maybe I want to buy a one. How does it work?
That’s super nice to hear, and I'm glad you asked. Please send me a mail, and I’ll get back to you pretty soon with all the information you need. It’s really easy.
I really want to hire you for a commission or an assignment. Can I?
Sure. That’s also super nice. Please send me a mail or give me a call. I’m ready.
I want to buy one of your books. How do I do that?
Thanks! Just check out the store on this page. Some of the titles are sold out I'm afraid. That's a shame. But some are available. That's nice.
Do you give talks?
Yes. I really like to talk about photography, my own projects and how I work. Please send me a mail.
Who are your photographic idols?
The first book that got my attention was The making of 40 photographs by Ansel Adams. Amazing. Then it was the classic Magnum photographers, full frame BW, then Sally Mann for the mood and personal approach, but after discovering Stephen Shore and Lars Tunbjörk there really was no way back.
Because it’s magic! From the moment I stood bent over the darkroom sink and saw my first sheet of photographic paper come to life I have been obsessed. It’s pure magic. Still is.
Are any of your images staged?
Hmm, not really. But that’s more down to the fact that I’m not good at it. I’m a lousy director, but I’m quite good at observing, and making the best of the situation that’s in front of me. In certain images I have moved stuff out of the picture, or I have moved the stuff inside the frame to make a better photograph. But I have not made an image out of thin air.
Do you shoot video?
There’s a saying that a true gentleman, is a man who can play accordion, but choose not to. I’m a true gentleman. But, hey, sometimes you have to play.
Do you fly a drone?
Yes! And I use it to make images for clients when that's what they want. Good clean fun.
How do I get a personal visual style?
This is a tricky question. My advice is to shoot, work, shoot, work, shoot, work and after all those hours and years maybe you do have your own visual style. Boring answer I know, but I’m afraid there’s no quick fix. Shoot, shoot, shoot!
What equipment do you use?
Hmm. Different tools for different work. Mostly Nikon digital for everyday work, with Nikon and Profoto flashes. I use Fujifilm GFX 100S for newer projects, but I'm not a friend of electronic viewfinder. They are just .. wrong. I have used iPhone for some assignments. Works really well. The 240 Landscape and A Moveable Beast are all shot with the amazing Mamiya 7 II. No doubt, best camera ever.
I have made my own camera family tree.
Can I ask you a question?
Please. Just send me a mail and I'll get back to you. Maybe we can add it here. Thanks.
Is there life on Mars?
I don’t know. But until we find out, be nice to each other, buy a photobook, look at images, take a long walk, enjoy a glass of grappa and take care.
