Originally trained as a professional photographer and with almost 10 years of experience as a commercial photographer, I know how much time, money and effort professional productions involve. 

When it comes to post-production, this knowledge and a sharp eye for detail, are a solid base for high-end retouching for commercial, editorial and artistic purposes. 

After ten years of post-production experience at Magic! (a major post-production house) and at Postcards from Silicon Valley (one of the early adaptors in this field), I founded my own digital imaging studio in 2011.

As a part-time teacher at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, I discovered that nothing keeps you more sharp, calm and collected than teaching your profession and sharing your enthusiasm and passion with young adults.

Keeping track of the latest developments and sharing my knowledge is what I love doing. You can always give me a call if any help is needed with Photoshop or other specific topics like Focus stacking, HDR, Panorama, Animated Gif, Cinemagraph, 3D etc.

If the job requires, I work together with other 2D and 3D imaging artists from my network. From my studio in Amsterdam or on location.

On the job I work close to the brief, but in my free work I like to play around a bit.
