As a long time motorsport fan I’ve always been fascinated by racecars, especially GT- and endurance racing. Back in 2009, when I went to the 24hrs of Le Mans for the first time, I quickly realized that making pictures from grandstands with a mobile phone does not give you satisfying results… I swiftly confiscated my parents DSLR, a by then already outdated Olympus E-510, and started learning to work with that.
I discovered that besides my passion for motorsport, I also had a passion for photography and that the combination of the two was immensely satisfying. I started gaining as much experience as I could, photographing race events in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and even Italy. I then also followed an education at the Dutch Fotoacademie to further improve my photography skills.
