Suspended in the cockpit of my 747, floating above the clouds and underneath the northern lights or a thousand stars. Ever since my first flight, I have felt the urge to document and share the incredible views I enjoy on a daily basis. Seeing the world and the universe glide by from my unique vantage point, I wished every human being could enjoy these breathtaking views. Convinced that this universal beauty is a bridge between people and could bring more understanding and peace to mankind.

Born and raised in The Netherlands in 1983, I was fascinated by natural light in all its forms since a young age. Now working as a pilot, flying all over the world, I always have my camera with me to immortalize the world around me, be it from the cockpit or at destinations that I am fortunate to visit. Capturing moments that have never been seen before and will never be seen again with eye for light, composition and mood.
