In the new VPRO program ‘On Stage’, Nadia Moussaid presents a series of artists and musicians together on request of a main guest / co host. Earlier this month I photographed the recordings in TivoliVredenburg, which can be seen next Sunday 21 february on NPO 2. 📺
Well… actually not me in person, but my photos did. 3FM-dj Sophie Hijlkema took part in the Valentine’s special of Dutch dating program First Dates. Some of the photos I took of her during 3FM Serious Request: The Lifeline featured in her introduction. Nice to spot work in the wild!
Last weekend I had another fun night at SemiFest LIVE. Artist Typhoon dropped by and played songs from his new album Lichthuis. It was a beautiful evening and I’m grateful I can still do my work during this lockdown and evening curfew.
Last year, COVID-19 came by and swept Eurovision Songfestival 2020 off my agenda. But…
Coming year I’ll still get the change to shoot this mega bucketlist production commissioned by the NPO, NOS and AVROTROS as their housephotographer. Really siked about this and looking forward to it.
The Industributie Awards diner has been the place to be for decades, for business leaders of food-retailers and manufacturers. Due COVID-19 the diner couldn’t take place so they turned it into a big live TV-talkshow, with special guests, a live band and comedians. The beautiful production took place in Felix Meritis in Amsterdam.
“We’re gonna have some fun, tonight!” 🎶
You’ll hear this sentence in the leader of SemiFest LIVE, an initiative of Martijn van Rheenen. 💫 For the past weeks every evening a live broadcast was made from the A’DAM Toren. 🎥 Through the interactive platform, viewers could interact with the guests and sing, dance, cook and laugh together!
Last week, we collected € 1.601.923 euro for the Red Cross in the Netherlands to fight against COVID-19. 🦠 What an amount of money!
It was another beautiful, but also intense and emotional radio week. So many sad stories directly or indirectly through corona… 😢 Luckily Alfie the dog was there to cheer us up again. 🐶 Now it’s time to spend some time with family and friends during christmas.
The complete TOP 2000 list was announced during the show of Radio 2 DJ Ruud de Wild. 🎙 This year DI-RECT won the TOP 2000 Award with their beautiful song ‘Soldier On’ as the highest new entrant on position 12! 🏆
Every year, DI-RECT closes the year with hometown shows in venue ‘PAARD’ in The Hague. This cannot continue this year due COVID-19 so they produced another livestream concert this year. 🎥 It turned out to be a magical show in a magically place. By surprise they received the platinum award for single Soldier On. 💿
After two years of perfect service it was time for a new look and feel. My old website was white and clean, very clean. Last year I found out that my website didn’t really represent me as a person. In the real world I’m not that clean and corporate, haha. So it became time to design and build a new website with a matching look and feel. Rich of contrast, colorful and a bit edgy. Thanks a lot to Buro Bros for the building-part.
The first edition of the Guidinc Video Streaming Awards is a fact! ?

Last month I photographed several FOX Sports programs in the studio at Endemol Shine Group. ?
I captured the presenters and analysts in their natural habitat during various live broadcasts. ⚽️ Jan Joost Van Gangelen, Pascal Kamperman, Hans Kraay, Ronald de Boer and Kenneth Perez, among others, were featured during the broadcasts. ?
Last weekend I visited the lovely Royal Theater Carré again. ? With the installation ‘Blindness’ they managed to create a cultural light in these dark times. ✨
Photographing was a huge challenge during the performance because it mainly takes place in the dark. Not surprising with ‘Blindness’ as the title. ? Afterwards we took the time to set up the entire installation properly.
“If you can see, look. If you can look, observe.”
Last week I was invited to make my podcast debut at ‘Make’, the podcast of Kris Pouw, and that episode is live. ?
It was a nice open conversation and it was for the first time that I spoke so openly about topics that I find important. ?
If you feel like listening to me for an hour and a half, be my guest! We talked about acquisitions, marketing yourself, rates and discounts, the endless drive for growth and my perception of success and happiness.

Last weekend the release show, of new DI-RECT record ‘Wild Hearts’, took place live from the Electricity Factory! ⚡️
To celebrate the NPO 3FM Award for the livestream at De Pier Scheveningen, we took a picture with the whole family beforehand. ? Grateful to have a small share in these four productions. ??
