Erik has spent over 20 years experience of photography. Gradually he noticed that his interests and qualities in photography became stronger in the direction of landscape and street photos. Erik loves nature and especially enjoys the beautiful views. The health of nature is important to Erik. With his photos he lets everyone enjoy what our earth has to offer. "Nature is my best example" was the statement of his father, who was also a photographer.
Born in Enschede Erik moved to Belgium at the age of 25 years, because of work. After a few years I became more and more interested in photography and I wondered if I could inherit this passion of my father. Four years later, I began a study of Photography in Oudenaarde (TSO) with teachers, Hilde Braet, Leen Brands, Luc Polfliet and Kris Snoeck. After this study I started my study on Ghent Academy with teacher Lieven Herreman. I noticed that I could lose myself all the time in photography and the passion making a beautiful photo took possession of me.
After five-year study, I started as a freelance photographer and switched from job selling photo equipment to get closer to photography.
After twenty years where I lived in Bruges, Nazareth and Oudenaarde, I moved back to the Netherlands in 2016, to Haaksbergen near Enschede. Over the past few years I have been able to see and experience many spots in the world. As a result, I have accumulated a considerable amount of material so I can refine my skills as a photographer more and more.
At 33 years of age he started a photography study (TSO Photography) and subsequently completed his 1st year of the photography academy in Gent and then started working as a freelance photographer in 2010.
