I grew up in Holland (the Netherlands) where I received a BA in Social Youth Work, Special Ed. I had the opportunity to do an internship in the USA, which was a life-changing event. The culture shock, the incredible experiences.... it all made me dream of travelling and exploring the world... and I have done and continue to do just that!
My zest for life has brought me to many places, has given me a wealth of adventures and experiences and I have met so many people from all walks of life. It all has enriched my life in ways words can not describe. I love capturing these special moments, the people and places, and freeze them in time, like a special memory.
I started taking snapshots as a kid with an AGFA CLICK II, a very simple plastic camera with one shutter speed... CLICK and it took a picture.. Now I use a CANON EOS 6D or my older CANON REBEL T4i. It certainly takes a lot more than just a CLICK to create a picture!:)
My challenge in photography is to capture emotions in every picture, whether it is the story of an event that I am shooting, the emotions of the people in the picture or the emotions the scenery provoke. My goal is to tell life's story in my photography.
I have been very fortunate to combine my three passions; life, travel and photography and turn them into a way of life and my business!
I am a photographer, as well as a Certified International Tour Manager and Certified Tour Guide and the owner of Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC (www.GoAtlantaAndBeyond.com), a small tour company offering a different kind of travel and adventure with the photography enthusiast in mind. Check it out!!
