Portfolio

Hello, I am Dirk

As a photographer, I am always looking to capture that special image that eludes others. I focus on capturing and telling a story, and reproducing it in a gripping way.

When I make photos for others, my ambition is to capture the moments with the most significance. I look for people and emotions in natural and spontaneous moments. It gives me great satisfaction to reproduce moments in a way that affect the viewer.

I like variation. Sporting events, other events and special meetings. But also nature and street photography, and photography in special locations (for example Urbex and travel). But I also focus on the microworld in my own back garden or drone photography from the air.

I have been photographing since my youth. It started as a child with the camera from my mother. After my exam she gifted me my first SLR camera. Later I joined various photography clubs and took classes in creative photo exploration.

In recent years I have been committing to telling the story. For example, based on a trip to Nepal right after the 2015 earthquakes we held an exposition to help bring the country back into a positive light. Also, as a member of PWB (Photographers Without Borders) I traveled to Chajul and the inland of Guatamala. There I learned how to document social changes in primitive conditions with the goal of improving them.

For more than 20 years I have been photographing digitally with Sony cameras. With a lot of pleasure I move along with the continuously increasing speed at which technology advances. Recently I expanded into drone photo- and videography and acquired my drone piloting certificate. It's like I am always carrying a 120 meter tripod!

When I do commissions I mostly apply myself to events, sporting matches, and once in a while a wedding or funeral. But also nature and landscape photography. In the meantime I always look for creative photography-related challenges.
