WITH MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AS FOCUSPULER, OPERATOR AND CINEMATOGRAPHER. I DID MAINLY SHOOTS ON FILM BUT THE LAST YEARS THIS HAS ALL BEEN CHANGED TO DIGITAL.

WITH DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY I CAN ENJOY ALL THE NEW TOOLS THAT COME AVAILABLE TO BE MORE CREATIVE AND WITH MY INTEREST IN POSTPRODUCTION, HELP PRODUCERS FIND THE RIGHT WORKFLOW FOR EACH PRODUCTION. QUALITY AND COSTS SAVINGS ARE A DELICATE BALANCE BUT KNOWING ALL PRO'S AND CON'S OF THE SYSTEMS HELPS A LOT TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS. ONE OF THE REASONS I LIKE TO GET INVOLVED IN PRODUCTIONS EVEN BEFORE THE QUOTES GET OUT OF THE DOOR.

I HAVE BEEN TESTING FOR MANY CAMERA  MANUFACTURERS AND SOFTWARE COMPANIES AND KNOW THE INS AND OUTS OF MANY SYSTEMS. CHECKOUT REDTALK.NL FOR MY DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY BLOG.

BESIDES SHOOTING I WRITE ARTICLES , GIVE TRAININGS AND TEACHINGS.

A bit of history:

AFTER HAVING FINISHED THE DUTCH FILM ACADEMY IN 1982, I WORKED WITH DUTCH AND ENGLISH CAMERAMEN AS A FOCUS PULLER AND CAMERA-ASSISTANT.

IN 1991 I STARTED OPERATING AND WORKING AS D.O.P. AND GAINED EXPERIENCE IN COMMERCIALS, TV SERIES, AND FEATURES. I WORKED IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES IN EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA AND THE UNITED STATES, MAINLY FOR SHOOTING COMMERCIALS, BUT ALSO FOR DOCUMENTARIES IN THE SAHARA AND ON TOP OF THE KILIMANJARO.

I HAVE WORKED ON MORE THAN 500 COMMERCIALS INCLUDING TWO GOLDEN LION WINNING COMMERCIAL AT THE CANNES FILMFESTIVAL. I HAVE WORKED ON SMALL AND BIG BUDGET FEATURES.

I AM SPECIALIZED IN REMOTE HEAD OPERATING, AERIAL- AND UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY AND EXPERIENCED IN DIGITAL EFFECTS, COMPUTER GENERATED IMAGES, BLUESCREEN AND ANAMORPHIC/IMAX FORMATS.

THE LAST 10-15 YEARS I HAVE SPENT A LOT OF TIME TRAVELING BETWEEN EAST AND WEST. WORKING IN CINA, TAIWAN, THAILAND AND SINGAPORE, WAS A NICE CHANGE FROM EUROPE. I STILL TRY TO COMBINE WORKING ON BOTH CONTINENTS.  ITS JUST A FLIGHT AWAY :-)
