Welcome,

thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

Our world is turbulent, noisy and full of distraction. In my profession as a GP,  I notice how feelings of anxiety affect people‚Äôs daily lives. A lot of patients find it hard to control their worries, while stillness seems to be a basic human need. For me, nature and scenic beauty provide an important part of that want. As a passionated landscape photographer I find quietness by the wonder I experience there, along the paths, uphill, down by the sea. As a continuation I try to create some silence, comfortable places of rest, by extending this sense into my images.

“When I settle back, unusual things seem to happen. Now and then it even looks as if the landscape is trying to reveal a hidden mystery.  These occasions give rise to a never-ending fascination and craving for being there”.

May I invite you to immerse yourself into these scenes.
