About me


I've been interested in photography from an early age. What started as a hobby has grown into more. When I got my Samoyed Nanuq in 2016, I was introduced to dog photography. Together we explored some of the most beautiful places in the Netherlands. I wanted to capture these moments with her. Since then I have specialized in photographing other people's dogs as well. It's my passion to create beautiful portraits, in both urban and natural environments. Without having it planned in advance, I eventually became a professional dog photographer. 

Since the beginning of 2018 I started offering dog photo shoots under the name Nanuq Dog Photography. Since I would never have become a dog photographer without Nanuq, I thought it appropriate to use her name as a company name. In the meantime I have been able to develop my own style that is characterized by the use of a 'moody' atmosphere in combination with the use of deep colours.


In addition to Photoshoots, you can now also contact me for photography workshops and a book written by me about post-processing photos.
