Monthly Archives: December 2016


It’s that time of the year again, Christmas… After the darkest and shortest day of the year Christmas is here to lighten up our minds. Forward we go, hopefully for all of us in a positive way. My Christmas card is showing a hummingbird near a Royal poinciana tree in Costa Rica, made in 2014. Thinking back to Costa Rica makes me happy. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy NewYear!


So very happy and proud to share with you some really good news. This year an American calendar for 2017 has been created with featuring only my pictures! The calendar is called ‘A return to love’ and is created by the internationally known American Marianne Williamson, who is a spiritual author and lecturer. The calendar accompanies her New York Times bestseller ‘A return to love’. The chosen pictures are paired with encouraging words of Marianne and show various themes such as birds, toadstools, flowers and insects.

Unfolded the calendar measures 30×60 cm. The images themselves are 30×30 cm. Might you be interested to buy one, my photo agency Buiten-Beeld is offering the calendar here.

Horniman museum

It is now a little while ago, but you might reminder I received an award for my picture ‘Looking for shelter’ in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest in 2015. Now this European Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition of 2015 is running in the Horniman Museum and Gardens (in London). And so the museum has dedicated one of their blogs to me and my photography. What an honour! Read more about the making of my winning picture and others on their blog.


Yep, finally I am on the Instagram!… It took me some while to start with, but hey… better late than never… So if you want to stay tuned, please don’t hesitate and take a closer look at my page. Once you’re there I am sure you’ll have a great time anyway encountering all kinds of inspiring photographers. Enjoy and hope to see you!
