About Rob

Originally from Holland, I’ve been traveling around the world for many years, spending time in some of the the worlds many beautiful places as well in some of its worst areas. Through these experiences I developed a passion for travel to experience life and for me photography is a way to express and document this. 

When I started scuba diving a whole new world opened up, peaceful but exciting as well. Ever since then the underwater world has never stopped to amaze me and now I try to spend as much time as possible in and under water. I love searching the small stuff for macro and super-macro but I also like the bigger species, wrecks and general underwater photography.

As much as I like creating nice looking images, my real interest is in learning more about subjects -above and under water- to be able to document them more in-depth. This way photography turns into story telling and becomes much more engaging.

Next to photographing I love teaching. As William Butler Yeats said; “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” For me that is the most important part of  teaching; not just a transfer of knowledge but sharing and fuelling the enthusiasm for the subject. I am a PADI certified dive instructor and enjoy helping people improving and expanding their dive skills. When it comes to photography I like the combination of hands-on training with a solid theoretical base.

Having worked many years as a member of a global emergency fast response team in the humanitarian sector, I had a chance to see a lot of the world and photograph as a hobby. Growing more and more into this I decided to take the step and focus on underwater and general photography to develop myself and others in this field. Looking forward to diving and learning with you, feel free to contact me (contact details behind the picture).
