I have been living and working as a photographer in the lovely city of The Hague since 1998 but my roots are in Suriname.
As a little boy, my father gave me some great advice that I still remember today: help people! Help each other and everything will be all right. This life lesson still forms the basis of my work as a photographer. I help people by creating beautiful images and lasting memories and that’s how I make them happy.
I became involved in photography at an early age. When I was twelve, I saw a photo develop for the first time in a dark room. Wow, I loved it! And when I was sixteen, I got my first professional camera. That was thirty years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday. And from then onwards, I knew that my mission in life was to give people unique images that would provide them with tangible and lasting memories.
I always have a small (video) camera in my bag. Even when I go to the store or to visit someone. And if I just want to relax, then I grab my bike and my camera and go out. I am constantly looking for special locations and moments to capture. Photographing people is my passion!
