As a photographer and visual storyteller focusing on sustainability, my work varies from photography for sustainable businesses, organisations and initiatives to documentary photography projects and self-initiated projects that aim to inspire and motivate people to live more sustainable and have a greater understanding of the world around them.

Always looking for the sustainable or ethical story behind a subject, brand or product.

Works internationally, but currently based
in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

Every sustainable story
deserves to be seen.

I make them visible.




The most important stories of our time are sustainable stories.
They should be the most outstanding, genuine and striking stories out there.
The stories people don’t just see, but remember. 



I aim to be a photographer who takes her responsibilities.
Who uses her knowledge and skills in order to create positive
influences and contribute to a better world.


Making sustainable stories stand out so they inspire,
motivate and stimulate people and organisations to be and act
more sustainable through visual communication.
