Home About me Projects Competitions Films Aerials

As a lot of my colleague underwater videographers I owe much to Jaques-Yves Cousteau, the founding father of scuba diving and underwater filming worldwide. As a child I was fascinated by his television shows broadcasted on Dutch National television. Back then I decided to become a scuba diver myself one day. I started scuba diving in 1995 and worked my way up to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver and a PADI Divemaster.


After taking the “ SSI Underwater Photography” course in 1997 I was occupied with analogue underwater photography until I made a switch to digital underwater photography ten years later.

As a passionate scuba diver and storyteller I benefitted of the technological revolution, which did wonders for the quality of underwater filming. In 2013 a long-cherished wish came true when I switched from photography to Full HD underwater videography. I debuted with my first independent production in 2014 and nowadays I'm proud I may call myself a multiple award winning filmmaker. In 2020 I switched from shooting in FullHD 1920x1080 to 4K 3840x2160.


Over time I have further expanded my activities with aerial videography by using drones with high quality video cameras and timelapses. Besides that I am both author and lecturer of a course in 'Image- & Video Editing' and 'Drone photo and videography' at a distance learning center in Belgium and The Netherlands. As an underwater cameraman I contributed to televisionshows on Dutch national television.
