Elephants (Loxodonta africana) cross the Tarangire River in Tanzania


You want to go on a private photo tour to Tanzania, India, Alaska, Antarctica or the rainforests of South America or Central America, but you don’t want or can’t organize it by yourself. And you want to have an experienced pro photographer with you for the best possibilities and images. At the right place at the right time. And well, a kind of tour leader with you. For one person, two, or a small  group up to four or so. Possible! I am a certified tour leader and I am a pro photographer.

I lead photo tours in cooperation with the best tour operators. Regular groups, but also customized individual photographic tours for the ultimate personal and unforgettable experience!

You let me know what you want and together we make an itinerary, choose accommodations, transfers, and so on. In cooperation with professional tour operators and agents for guaranteed comfort and liability.

During the tour you will have personalized photographic instructions. I will help you making the best possible images and will teach you how to compose your images, how to handle your camera in specific situations, where to stand or sit. How to move in the field and anticipate wildlife and changing light in case of landscapes. I will also help in post processing your images.

Besides professional photographer for almost 25 years now, I am also a naturalist for more than 45 years. I love to share my passion for and knowledge of nature with you. And, for what it’s worth, I am a biologist – ecotoxicologist – with some years work experience before becoming a full time professional photographer.

Assignments took me to almost all continents. Three of my latest assignments were for the Dutch edition of National Geographic Traveler, to Tanzania, Sri Lanka and Azores.
