Hi I'm Rob, 40 years old, born and bred around Gouda in the Netherlands and the proud dad of two awesome kids: my son Jonathan and my daughter Marijn.
I have been photographing for over 15 years as a hobbyist, focussing on macro, animals and landscapes.
I have only started shooting people since the beginning of 2017 - and I love it! I love making people feel "Is that me? I didn't know I look that good!".
I have been working in Human Resources and in Continuous Improvement for years, but have now fully shifted towards photography and it's one of the best decisions I have made - I just love photographing people and getting the best out of them.
I have my own small studio at home and of course I can take my studio on the road and take headshots on location, whether it is at home, at the office or at a venue.
I have been shooting with Nikon since the beginning, currently shooting a Nikon D500. For my portraits and headshots I use my Sigma ART 50-100 f/1.8 DC HSM and Sigma ART 18-35 f/.8 and absolutely love these on my D500; they keep delivering me crazy sharp shots with a huge dynamic range.
For lighting I'm a fan of the LED-panels & strobes approach, I prefer small, highly portable and versatile set-up over powerful but cumbersome studiolights. It allows me to set-up everywhere and easily adjust, helping me create awesome shots of my clients whenever and where-ever they want!
