Goals: to grasp the essence of theater productions in striking images.
Specialties: dance photography and theater photography.
Dance: movement and aesthetics
I started to work for the Dutch National Ballet in 1992. Untill 2004 I did all stage photography for them and worked closely with Rudi van Dantzig, Toer van Schayk, Hans van Manen, Wayne Eagling and Ted Brandsen.
Opera: picturesque scenery and light
I also started to work for De Nederlandse Opera under the direction of Pierre Audi and Opera Zuid.
Then theater caught my attention.
Musical: movement, picturesque scenery, light and emotion
And finally musical, a combination of all the above. My first musical was Titanic with Danny de Munk in 1996.
